Energy consumption related to lighting accounts for 20% of the average homeowner’s electric bill. This fact, although often omitted, constitutes a critical energy-saving opportunity. JBT lighting control solutions can significantly increase energy savings throughout your home.
By implementing lighting controls you can help the environment and accentuate the beauty of your home. There are multiple ways to save energy in your home – from dimmers, occupancy sensors, and whole home lighting controls that reduce energy consumption and extend the life of the bulbs dramatically, to shading solutions that manage natural light, reducing cooling and heating costs.
When a dimmer is introduced into a room the potential yearly energy savings can be up to $30 and the bulb life can be extended 10 years or more.
The right lighting creates mood, profundity and atmosphere. Whether you’re trying to set a warm and comfortable mood by dimming the lights in your dining room, setting a rich atmosphere for entertainment by accentuating the lights on the family room, or coordinating landscaping lights for drama and splendor, JBT lighting systems gives you the ability to easily control your home lighting at a touch of a button.
JBT lighting controls will enable you to easily program automatic events that, based on astronomical times, will trigger lights to turn on or off, and open or close shades . At sunrise you can have the shades automatically open to expose any area of the house to natural lightning. At sunset the exterior lights will come on, and turn off at 11:00 p.m. All these events can be easily modified from the comfort of your bed using the system interfaces, your mobile phone or favorite tablet device. By automating lights, creating time events, and using occupancy sensors, the consumption of energy can be significantly reduced, ensuring that unnecessary lighting is not used when areas of the house are vacant or lit unintentionally.
