Daylight Harvesting & Save Up to 70% Off

Have you ever heard of daylight harvesting? The idea behind daylight harvesting, is to leverage the available natural light for greater energy efficiency and aesthetic value. If you are interested in Going Green and planning to build a new home, daylight harvesting is an amazing energy saving concept. The direction of the sun and which way your home faces is very important for daylight harvesting. For example, bedrooms don’t need natural light during the day, making a Northern exposure perfectly acceptable.
On the other hand, for rooms you spend a lot of time in, such as the kitchen or family room, facing South or West will provide plenty of natural ambient light throughout the day. Another savvy energy-saving idea is to install a dimming system that controls lighting throughout your entire home. Lutron’s Graphic Eye system is a great solution and is available in Capitol Lighting showrooms. Capitol Lighting consultants can help advise you on layout and the installation process.
