Online, High Performance Home Lighting For Health, Safety & Welfare, July 13,
Event Description

Most homes in America are woefully underlit. Codes are no help because they have minimal requirements (would you believe the International Residential Code only requires ONE light in a kitchen?). Despite energy mandates requiring high-efficiency LEDs, there is little guidance on what kind of LEDs to use and more importantly where to place them. 


1. Learn how to maximize lighting and daylighting in homes to support Circadian rhythms and provide adequate illumination for all age groups.
2. Attendees will understand why each end user might have different needs, and how to provide them the control and choice they require from low-tech to high-tech.
3. Look at residential lighting standards and industry recommendations critically, and set your own evidence-based metrics.
4. Know where to look for further learning on the topic of lighting, especially kitchens, and baths, the two most critical lighting environments in the home.
