As lighting technology continues to change, companies within the lighting industry must be able to adapt in order to keep up with the changing landscape. LED lighting is currently dominating the lighting industry for a number of reasons, including its improved energy efficiency, extended lifespan, and low maintenance requirements.
But did you know that installing energy-efficient LED lighting products and solutions in your home can provide numerous health benefits and advantages, as well? How is this possible? In our most recent blog, the licensed electrical technicians at Mister Sparky of the Bay Area discuss how LED lighting can provide numerous health benefits and advantages, while improving your home’s overall energy consumption levels.
Lighting technologies continue to change, become more energy-efficient, and become healthier, and it’s important that your home considers if LED lighting technology is right for your home. For all of your home or business’ lighting needs, contact the number-one electrical and lighting industry company in the Bay Area – Mister Sparky.
Health Benefits of LED Lighting
Light sensitivity may lead to headaches and migraines. For those who experience light sensitivity as a result of flickering fluorescent or traditional light bulbs, LED lighting is the best option. LED bulbs and systems also have a more consistent color than a fluorescent bulb, which reduces eye strain which may also lead to headaches and migraines.
Reduces stress and anxiety
Sometimes, when we don’t get enough sunlight, we may experience anxiety and stress. This can often occur in the winter when the days are shorter and there is more cloud cover. LED lighting eliminates this problem because it mimics the effects of natural light. LED lighting may help decrease levels of anxiety and stress in people who spend most of their time indoors.
Regulates your circadian rhythm
Newer types of systems and applications that utilize LED lighting can have the same effect on humans as natural light. By using LED light bulbs, you can normalize your circadian rhythm and encourage normal sleep patterns. Circadian rhythm is an internal, natural process that regulates your sleep-wake cycle. Using LED lights can make a huge difference in your overall sleep patterns.
Increases your learning performance and productivity
Institutions that use energy-efficient LED lighting and LED technology products and solutions have reported increased productivity levels in their workers. This is true, as well, for many schools where LED lighting is the main light source. Some studies have observed that workers who work under LED light sources have improved cognitive function and better overall performance.
Reduces your exposure to mercury
A fluorescent or incandescent light bulb will often contain some amount of mercury. LED light-emitting bulbs don’t. Mercury, often found in incandescent bulbs and other incandescent light sources, is a highly toxic element that is fatal in large doses. Protect your home from the mercury exposure caused by incandescent light bulbs by switching your light sources to LED lighting.
Reduces your exposure to UV emissions
LED technology and light-emitting electrical appliances do not emit ultraviolet radiation, which has been linked to skin cancer, premature aging, and eye strain. UV emissions may cause serious damage. Instead of risking exposure to UV emissions, change your home’s light sources to an LED light source.
Reduces your exposure to anxiety-inducing noise
Compact fluorescent lamps and light bulbs can produce a low but annoying buzz that may be distracting and can give people headaches, fatigue, and stress. LED lighting, compared to traditional lighting methods, is completely silent.
