Light Level Does Not Comply With Ontario Building Code

Article Number

8.4

Condition

LIGHT LEVEL DOES NOT COMPLY WITH ONTARIO BUILDING CODE

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Electrical lighting levels shall meet the requirements of the Ontario Building Code and the design.

Warranty

One-Year - Work and Materials. Two-Year – Ontario Building Code, Health and Safety (see remarks)

Action

Electrical lighting levels not meeting the acceptable condition shall be repaired.

Remarks

Light output of bulbs degrades over time. Light levels measured within the first year warranty period shall meet Code requirements. Further degradation of the bulbs beyond the first year would be considered normal wear and tear and be addressed by the homeowner. If the lighting system cannot achieve required light levels even with new bulbs, then two year warranty coverage would apply.
