Homebuilders are constructing many of today's homes with an eye toward higher levels of energy efficiency, implementing strategies like improved levels of insulation and air sealing and better designed HVAC systems. IBACOS' High Performance Lighting (HPL) Guide provides the foundation for the next stage of home energy efficiency—residential lighting.
The HPL Guide is intended for energy-conscious builders who want to learn more about HPL, such as its background and terminology, and how to implement it in the new homes they build. The guide can also help builders set homebuyers' expectations regarding HPL designs and approaches. According to Energy Star, lighting accounts for approximately 20% of the electric bill for the average U.S. home today. With high performance lighting, homeowners get to enjoy high-quality, energy-efficient lighting that also reduces their electric bill.
There are seven sections to help familiarize you with HPL. Click on a link below, or choose a menu item to the left.
IBACOS developed the High Performance Lighting Guide through its research for the U.S. Department of Energy's Building America program.
