A new study suggests that electric sparklers may be a natural and effective way to reduce indoor air pollution in homes.
The study was led by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and the University at Buffalo, both in New York.
The team used a computer-based model to determine how many sparklers each home could generate using a variety of materials.
The study also examined whether the use of electric lighting was a feasible solution for controlling indoor air quality.
The results show that sparklers have the potential to reduce the amount of air pollution generated by homes, the researchers wrote in their study.
The researchers found that the use to control indoor air in an electric home reduced indoor air pollutants by as much as 20 percent compared to a standard home.
The findings were presented at the International Conference on Clean Air and Environment, which takes place on March 18-19 in London.
“We found that there are ways to reduce air pollution from the electrical lighting system,” said John Meehan, an associate professor in the Penn School of Engineering and Applied Science.
The report is the first to test how well an electric fireplace can reduce indoor pollution and air quality problems, he added.
The research is the latest effort to explore the environmental benefits of electrifying electric lighting, which is increasingly popular among homeowners in parts of the world where electricity has become cheaper and more abundant.
The popularity of electric lamps and lighting is also increasing.
The electric sparkler is a type of LED light that emits a red light that can be directed downward to light up a target surface or spot on the ground.
It is a highly efficient light source and can be used in many indoor environments, including garages and basements, in homes with a minimum of energy demand.
The Penn study looked at two types of sparklers: a non-stick ceramic version and a nonstick ceramic model that was created from a material called a carbon fiber material called carbon-nanotube.
The researchers tested the ceramic version using a standard method, which involves coating the surface of the bulb with a coat of epoxy resin and then pouring a layer of the resin on top of the surface.
The coating allows the light to penetrate the resin and form a light-absorbing coating.
They also tested the nonstick model on a ceramic base and on an aluminum foil coated surface.
In addition to testing the ceramic and nonstick versions of the sparkler, the study looked for other types of light sources that could reduce indoor pollutants.
The authors did not conduct their tests with fluorescent bulbs, but they did test the ceramic light on a variety the light source would emit.
The results show the ceramic sparkler reduces the amount and type of air pollutants generated by a standard electric fireplace by 20 percent, compared to conventional light sources.
In a second test, they tested the carbon fiber model on an open flame and found it reduces the overall air pollutants produced by an electric light by more than 90 percent.
The authors did their tests using a typical household LED lighting fixture, which can be made from inexpensive, high-efficiency fluorescent lights or other lighting sources.
They used standard fluorescent lamps with a maximum output of 400 lumens and recommended bulbs for an average home with an average energy requirement of about 2,000 kilowatts.
The light sources used in the study included a standard fluorescent bulb and a standard LED fixture.
The research was conducted in conjunction with the National Center for Environmental Information, the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science and a U.K.-based energy consulting firm.
