Church Lighting Types > PendantChurch lighting styles are designed to enhance the aesthetic appearance of a church building, supply the correct amount of light and maximize energy efficiency. The laws of physics demonstrate that lighting is much brighter and much more energy efficient if the light source is located close to where it is needed. This is the fundamental reason why decorative church lighting sources are chosen to be used within a space.
It is almost always less efficient to locate light sources on the ceiling or perimeter of a room, especially if the ceiling is high or the room is wide — as is often the case in a church nave or sanctuary. Lighting fixtures that are correctly spaced within a room can provide much more even lighting at the lowest energy cost. Church lighting fixtures are designed to provide the correct amount of light and minimize visual glare. Dimming controls may be added to adjust the light levels to suit the type of service while full light may be needed for cleaning and maintenance. Light balance can be used to provide the correct reading light while projection is being used.
