According to the US Department of Energy, nearly 20% of average residential electricity spending goes toward lighting. A significant percentage of that goes towards outdoor lighting since they typically operate for long periods of the day. And these "hidden" costs are not exclusive to residential power consumers. In many cities across the country, streetlights and other external illumination represent the single largest energy-related municipal expense.
When deciding on brightness, people need to figure out what the primary purpose of the lamp will be. This could be mood lighting, reading, decoration, or safety. For decorative lighting, an opaque fabric shade can be chosen. It illuminates the space from ceiling to floor. For reading and other tasks, a translucent lampshade will diffuse light. High quality paper or fabric shades are ideal.
This procedure applies to a fixed lamp on the ceiling or on the wall. As always please remember to work slowly and pay attention to what you are doing. Safety should be your main concern. In this case you will need a folding ladder that should go all the way up to the lamp; you must also be able to stand on it without going all the way to the top. Please use a good ladder and make sure it is safe and does not wobble before getting on it. You will need our usual set of tools too, pointed electrical pliers, a screwdriver, electrical tape and a new one, a small wrench.
When choosing your lamp, you have to keep an eye out on the quality of your choice. If you are an experience antique collector, you can virtually buy your lamp from anywhere you like, so long as you are sure to check that your lamp is in good condition and that if you are going to place it in a room, make sure that the lamp will match the décor of its new home.
