Lighting

BASIX assesses the energy used by lighting based on:

  • whether there will be direct natural light available to bathroom/toilets and kitchen;
    and 
  • if there is artificial lighting, which rooms will be primarily lit by fluorescent or LED lamps and if these rooms have dedicated fluorescent or LED fitting.
