Video: Types of Lighting

Learn about ambient, task and accent lighting and how to use them effectively in your home.


There are three types of lighting for the home or office.  These include ambient lighting, task lighting and accent lighting.  Each serves a very specific role, and should be taken into consideration when planning or reviewing the lighting needs inyour home or office.  In this video Terry Peterman, the Internet Electrician, reviews the three types of lighting, their function, and where they are most typically found in the home.

This is a short, but informative video clip from a national television show that I appeared in several years ago. I served as the electrical expert,  answered live calls from people across the country, and provided educational tips and home electrical wiring advice targeted towards the DIY audience.

Remember – safety first!
