LED Lights help green home reach LEED Platinum

Energy efficient LED lighting will be one of the technologies that will help Ed Begley Jr.'s new home reach LEED certification.

Noted actor and environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr., is currently working to build one of North America’s greenest, most sustainable homes, with a goal of LEED Platinum certification. Eaton is providing electrical efficiency expertise and a range of products to help the Begley family meet their green goals.

One of the Eaton products incorporated into the Begley home build are the Halo  LED Recessed Downlights (H4 Collection).

In this video from the 2015 International Builders' Show, Ed Begley Jr. discusses his home project, and Glenn Siegel, director of marketing for recessed and track lighting for Eaton, discuss the lighting choices that will go in the home.

Seigel said The Halo LED H4 Collection of small aperture 4-inch LED housings and light engines utilizes the latest in high color quality of 90 CRI and high-efficiency LED driver technology.

This collection delivers higher lumens (up to 900 lumens) and lower wattage (12.7 watts) for accent, task and general lighting applications. The LED downlights deliver light output and distribution comparable to a halogen lamp, while offering significant energy and maintenance savings, up to 75 percent compared to a 50-watt MR16 halogen lamp. The H4 LED series’ efficient performance provides excellent cutoff, smooth beam distribution and superior color quality for better visual comfort, Seigel noted.

The LED downlights are available in multiple color temperature options and offer full dimming capability to satisfy more application needs in residential and commercial settings. The product is ENERGY STAR certified and California Title 24 compliant with Title 20 LED luminaire certification.
