After a long work week, you’re ready to visit your favorite, cozy and quaint restaurant. The service is pretty good, and the food is exceptional, but your attraction to this place has more to do with the ambiance.

We’ve all seen them lurking during nightfall, on the side of the road. It’s the embarrassing display of a poorly lit sign.

Dim or dark signs can result in questionable advertising, loss in business revenue and overall costly energy inefficiency. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your sign.

Whether you have a teeny coop in the city or a larger barn for your birds of beauty, lighting is vital to the health and vigor of your poultry. Small amounts of lighting during brooding or excessive lighting during growth season may result in financial or production loss for owners. Controlling lumens, temperature and color temperature are essential for chickens. This means that without the proper lighting, chickens may produce fewer eggs or fail to gain weight in a timely manner. Poultry perceive light differently than we do. For instance, where we see a yellowish or white glow from a bulb, poultry perceive the light as red because of their intense sensitivity to UV rays. Incidentally, this red light has a longer wavelength which enters the skull and skin of the chickens, prompting them to lay eggs. In the past, incandescent lamps were often used for poultry lighting, but these traditional lights are now fading due to their short lifespans, increased heat, and higher energy costs. To ensure the health and productivity of your poultry, let’s break down a few alternative lighting options you may want to consider for your broiler house.

Every consumer car, truck, or van comes with lights pre-installed. Without lights, night driving would be practically impossible and bad-weather traffic would be extremely dangerous. The stock lighting kit that comes with your car is often incomplete, arriving with just enough lights to meet government specifications. Yet lighting almost always takes a back seat to other things, your sound system for instance, when it comes time for upgrades. But why upgrade lights if they haven’t burned out yet? Well it’s more than just upgrading headlights. A car with a full light kit includes additional lights such as fog lamps, driver lights, and parking lights.
