Eaton's Halo LED Solutions Bring Energy Efficiency to the Greenbuild LivingHome

The home is designed for exceptional sustainability, superior resilience, durability and affordability - all while maintaining a high level of design.

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga.--Power management company Eaton today announced that its Halolight-emitting diode (LED) downlights from its Cooper Lighting Division are featured in the 2014 GreenbuildLivingHome show home. The home offers a first look at the next generation of sustainable building and demonstrates the latest technologies and practices.


"In addition to showcasing exceptional sustainability, this home has been designed to provide a comfortable, healthy, safe, resilient and adaptable environment for its occupants," said Mark Eubanks, president, Eaton's Cooper Lighting Division. "We're proud that our ENERGY STAR-certified LED downlights met both the advanced energy efficiency performance criteria for this net-zero electricity demonstration home and the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) v4 Platinum standards."

Outfitted in products selected for their commitment to sustainability, innovation and affordability, the Greenbuild LivingHome will be on display on the expo show floor on Oct. 22 through 23 at the 2014 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana. After the show, the home will be permanently placed on a Make It Right site in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward to become a part of the organization's ongoing recovery efforts. Make It Right was founded by Brad Pitt in 2007 to build homes, buildings and communities for people in need.

The Halo RL4 LED Downlights consume only 11 watts and last up to 22 years (based on six hours of daily use). The all-in-one LED module-trims are designed to install in 4-inch aperture housings and are suitable for new construction, remodel or retrofit installations. The ENERGY STAR-certified models provide light output equivalent to a traditional 50-watt incandescent light bulb and are damp- and wet-location listed for use in showers and protected outdoor ceilings.

The Greenbuild LivingHome was created in collaboration with Hanley Wood, LivingHomes, Make It Right and the International Cradle To Cradle Products Innovation Institute. The home is designed for exceptional sustainability, superior resilience, durability and affordability - all while maintaining a high level of design.
