Lighting is the most diverse aspect of electrical installations. New technology constantly provides new products and new applications. Lighting is also the most "visible" part of our industry.
Lighting systems consist of light fixtures, the lamps within the fixture and the controls, which operate the fixtures. A visible connection to the electrical world is provided by the artificial light we have come to take for granted.
We are familiar with the types of light we encounter in our daily lives. Incandescent fixtures/lamps are most common in our home and retail stores. Fluorescent fixtures/lamps are increasingly found in our homes but are found mostly in the commercial lighting world of offices, grocery stores and shopping centers. HID (High Intensity Discharge) fixtures/lamps include the yellow colored light of High Pressure Sodium street and parking lot light source we see everywhere, the blue colored light of Metal Halide light source we see on building exteriors, in gymnasiums, in swimming pools and industrial facilities. LED light sources are emerging as the most energy efficient and having the longest life of common light sources.
In addition to the common light sources mentioned there are many specialized lamps that are very useful in our world. These types are used in surgical procedures, airport runway lighting, lighthouses, radio antennas, automobiles, computers and many other applications.
Gaber Electric provides services related to our lighting world from new installations, to retrofitting/upgrading to a new lighting source or system, to routine maintenance of all lighting types.
NEW INSTALLATIONS -allow us to design lighting systems with the appropriate amount of light for the task we want to accomplish. New installations also allow us to choose the most modern/cost effective lamps, light fixtures and controls. Today's lighting design uses a mix of light sources and multiple methods of controlling our light levels and operation times. Motion sensors, photocells and time clocks are a few of the most common controls available today.
