Hyperikon LED Utility Shop Light, 4FT Integrated Linkable Double-Fixture, 38W (100W Eq) 4000 Lumens, 4000K (Daylight Glow) DLC 4.1 Qualified, Pull Chain Switch, Workshop Garage Basement – Pack of 4
My home-brewery or most of my home-brewery is in my basement. It’s in a good sized utility room that was drastically underlit for home brewing purposes. Same story for our last house. Basement brew area, low light.
I’ve added several of these workshop lights to the area and it’s made a huge difference. Instead of what seemed like a cave, I’m now in a well lit space. These have commercial grade durability, have a stated 45,000 stated bulb lifetime (21 years at 6 hours/day), are lit by LED bulbs, are energy star rated and were very easy to install. One piece mounts on your ceiling (one on each end) and then a cable screws into that. That cable hooks to a smaller cable on the back of the lighting fixture. From there you adjust the cable to set the height of these fixtures. I like that they plug in using a standard 110 plug in and they are linkable. You can link multiple fixtures together to power additional units. They also have pull chains so you don’t have to wire to a switch.
For two of these, I switched out the ceramic socket fixture with a regular outlet but for most of them I just used a screw in socket to outlet converter.
These have made a big improvement, made it easier and more pleasant to work in my brewery.
