As much as we all love to dream of a world without the need for a high-tech thermostat, that dream may not come true anytime soon.
According to a new survey from the Consumer Electronics Association, a market research firm, nearly one-third of Americans (31%) say they’re not in favor of a high ceiling light.
The survey also found that just a third of Americans support the use of more energy-efficient light fixtures and one in five (18%) don’t like the idea of high-ceiling lighting at all.
In other words, it’s a little easier to say no to high ceiling lighting than to say yes to it.
The survey also asked respondents about their views on the use and benefits of ceiling lighting.
The answer choices ranged from “never” to “mostly never.”
Only 7% of those surveyed were in favor.
In other words: Even if you’re a fan of the idea, there’s no guarantee that your friends and family will embrace your dream of low-energy lighting.
According to the survey, 38% of Americans think high-end ceiling lighting would make the country a safer place.
That’s right, 40% of respondents think lighting up a room will make the world a safer environment.
That number jumps to 61% among those who are against the idea.
That’s not all.
Thirty-two percent of those polled said that they’re more likely to have a gun in the house.
That may not be a big deal if you live in a safe environment, but if you happen to live in the suburbs where there are more gun violence incidents per capita than anywhere else in the country, you may want to reconsider.
We also asked the respondents what they think about the “low-cost, low-power” ceiling lighting devices.
Among those surveyed, 28% said they would consider purchasing a low-cost light fixture if the cost was lower.
That leaves 38% who would not consider it, with the remaining 27% saying that they would not purchase a light fixture unless the cost were lower.
The fact that there are so many different types of lighting products makes it difficult to tell what they all are, so we decided to find out if there is any clear consensus among the American people on what is best for them.
Here are the answers:
