In life, no matter big or small things, people need to make efforts to do them in order to get a good return. The same is true when choosing lamps. The most expensive is not necessarily the best, but the one too cheap must be bad. Many cheap lamps fail to pass the quality standard, often with infinite hidden dangers. In case of fire, the consequences are unimaginable. So what are the precautions for the purchase of lamps? Let's take a look with Xiaobian!
What are the precautions for choosing lamps
1. Pay attention to the accessories of lamps: if electronic ballasts are used in lamps, lamps equipped with abnormal protection electronic ballasts should be selected. If inductive ballasts are used in lamps, try to choose one with higher TW value (such as tw130), especially when the heat dissipation conditions of lamps are poor TW is the rated maximum working temperature of the ballast coil. At this temperature, the ballast has a continuous working life of 10 years.
2. Pay attention to the cross-sectional area of the wire used in the lamp: when purchasing, you can look at the mark printed on the insulation layer outside the wire on the lamp. It is stipulated that the minimum cross-sectional area of the wire used on the lamp is 0.5mm/m2. In order to reduce the cost, some manufacturers use only 0.2mm/m2 of the wire on the product. Under abnormal conditions, the wire will be scorched, and the insulation layer will be burnt out, resulting in short circuit and danger.
3. Pay attention to the protection against electric shock. Electric shock caused by lamps and lanterns is generally caused by the use of non-conforming lamp holders or non covering of live parts of lamps and lanterns. When the lamp is not powered on, turn it back when people touch it.
Secondly, we should pay attention to the consistency of style in the selection of lighting. The color, shape and style of lamps and lanterns must be commensurate with the style of interior decoration and furniture and echo each other. Flashy lighting can not only add to the icing on the cake, but also add to the snake. In the choice of lamp color, in addition to matching with the indoor color tone, it can also be purchased according to personal preference. In particular, the color of the lampshade plays a great role in the atmosphere. The size, type and number of lamps should be coordinated with the size of living room space, total area, indoor height and other conditions.
pay attention to the interests of the whole
In addition, due to the endless emergence of lamp styles, you'd better understand the development trend of modern lighting before buying lighting, so as to avoid the bad luck that the newly bought lighting will be eliminated. Moreover, from the perspective of power saving, more energy-saving light sources can be installed.
When buying lamps and lanterns, you should also carefully inspect the goods. Lighting is mainly made of glass products, which are fragile. After long-distance transportation, scratches or damage will inevitably occur. Because the lighting is generally hung in an important position at home, even minor damage will affect the use effect.
Finally, lighting expenditure generally accounts for about 10% of the whole decoration expenditure. Therefore, the purchase of which grade of lighting should be determined according to their own economic situation.
