  • A full Lighting Makeover
  • Free in-home consultation with Hansen's lighting design experts
  • New fixtures, including chandeliers, ceiling fans, vanity lights, can lights, and flush mounts

Tips & Tricks
Tech Corner: UV Light
Lately, there has been a lot of interest in using UV-C light as a disinfectant. UV-C light is proven to provide tangible sanitizing benefits, and there are products already in the marketplace that help sterilize hospital and hotel rooms. 
Before you encourage residential use however, there are many factors to consider:
  • UV-C light is extremely harmful to skin and eyes. 
  • Since COVID-19 is a new virus, the right mix of intensity and length of UV-C exposure to safely disinfect an object is unknown. 
  • UV-C light is only effective on surfaces that are directly exposed to light, so UV-C light would not be effective on something like a fold in a shirt. 

Curious to learn more? The ALA has been active in discussions about this technology. Click here to view a discussion between Terry McGowan and the Lighting Research Center.
