Studio Power Usage
The whole studio at Arthur Murray Coquitlam has been built to the highest electrical use standards of 2014 for our area. All the lighting is dimmable LED, which draws the smallest amount of power possible. Our main ballroom bulbs are 20 watt and deliver 1600 lumens of warm 2700K light while using at least 82% less energy than incandescent bulbs. The seating area has 12 watt bulbs with 800 lumens. The result is a brightly lit studio with minimal power drain.
There are also timed light switches in washrooms and office space which turn on and off automatically, lighting only when there is movement in the area. Computers are set to sleep and screens blacken when they are not being used and are shut off every night.
