Installation review: Coor Residence, Qld
Efficient houses have become the mainline trend recently with the cost of electricity, fuel and even food expenses all rising. While M-Elec can’t help bring the cost of food and fuel down we are able to reduce energy consumption, in your everyday life, using energy efficient lighting. A recently constructed house on the Sunshine Coast is a unique example of energy efficient lighting being utilised to save expenses.
M-Elec’s ML-D1590 was a major product used throughout this modern chic styled house. We spoke to Mark, one of the onsite electricians for Mobbs Electrical, and asked what he thought about the products that were installed.
“The downlights were simple to install. I liked the style of the downlight and the completed finish. They looked great whether on or off.”
He also commented on the UPDOWN exterior lights which were installed at the front of the house, used to compliment the property’s architectural features.
“The Updowns were surprisingly bright for 2x3W LEDs. They certainly compliment the long linear windows at the front of the house.”
We also caught up with the builder Ty Wilson—who was surprised with the lights’ output: -
“It’s a long way for the light to travel but it does it well, especially in the 3m raked ceiling areas, these lights are surprisingly bright for the small consumption they use.”
Wall lights, wall mounted DOWN light and other feature lights, were used to create a comfortable atmosphere throughout the home. Hallways used the ML-WALL-S to create a soft pattern of light that ‘gives enough light to see but not enough to be obtrusive.’ The stairway also featured the WALL-S product to bring out the timber used for the stairway. The glass cabinetry used the ML-CEIL product, which highlighted the crystal and antiques inside the cabinetry.
