When does a fireplace light become too dim?
In a new article in The Nextweb, researchers from the University of Southern California are hoping to answer that question.
In a series of experiments, the researchers found that indoor fireplace lights can be bright enough to produce indoor fires without any indoor fire hazards.
“The goal of this study is to show that outdoor lighting can be safely used indoors, and that this is possible even with incandescent lamps,” said study lead author Elizabeth Gebhardt, a postdoctoral fellow at the university’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.
The researchers were able to show, for example, that a 50 watt indoor light bulb can produce a fire without any smoke or smoke residue.
The article also shows how an outdoor fireplace can be used to control fire size and spread, which is important for indoor fires.
The indoor lighting is designed to minimize the amount of light reflected from the ceiling.
It can be dimmed from 20 percent to 30 percent in increments of 20 percent and 30 percent.
The LED lights are designed to provide a light source of 0.25 watt.
The authors also compared indoor lighting with outdoor lighting.
They found that the indoor lighting can produce less smoke and the indoor fire is more likely to occur at lower temperatures.
However, they said that the outdoor lighting also produces less smoke, but it does not provide as much protection.
“These results show that indoor lighting technology can be easily adapted to indoor fire safety,” Gebhart said.
“In particular, it is possible to reduce indoor fire risk by reducing the number of incandescents used in indoor lighting, and it is also possible to use outdoor lighting to provide lighting for indoor fire protection without requiring a separate indoor fire source.”
