RECONSTRUCTION UPDATE—TOWN HALL INVITATION
The Board of Directors has scheduled a Homeowner Town Hall Meeting for Monday, March 25, at 6:00 p.m. in the Sapphire Clubroom located on the second floor. Nautilus Reconstruction and Management will provide an update detailing the construction schedule and how it will temporarily affect certain facets of daily and existing routines at Sapphire Tower. Additional notices and details will be provided as we prepare for the commencement of reconstruction.
Replacement LED Lighting Option
A fellow resident and board member has identified an energy efficient LED lightbulb that can replace the old style compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFL) located in our kitchens and bathrooms. The SilverLite LED light bulb is very new and interesting because they are plug & play compatible with the ballast-equipped CFL light fixtures many units have, including our common area ceiling light fixtures. They are 61.5% more energy efficient using only 5 watts of energy compared to 13 watts with the old style CFLs. They do not contain toxic mercury, can be used in damp locations above shower/tub, can be placed in totally enclosed fixtures, and are instantly bright without any warmup time. They have a 50,000 hour lifetime and come with a 5-year limited warranty. The light bulbs can be purchased online at https://www.amazon.com/Silverlite-13w-CFL-Equivalent-LED-Stick-PL-Bulb-GX23-2-CFL-Ballast-UL-Classified/dp/B07C735T67/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=Silverlite%2BLED&qid=1551577754&s=gateway&sr=8-2&th=1.
