Switching to LEDs for Better Health

Did you know that switching to LED lighting is not only great for the environment, but could directly affect you, too?

Many companies and consumers are switching from compact fluorescent bulbs to LEDs due to their efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and significant environmental benefits.

Added to these benefits, new research finds evidence that bulbs could present health benefits as well, because the lights give off more “natural” light. Potential health benefits include:

  • Increased employee motivation and commitment
  • Improved concentration and energy
  • “Mood support” in wellness and dining areas
  • Reduced therapy times and capacity requirements

As a result of this research, more LED lighting has been installed in hospitals, health centers, schools, and offices. This concept, “Human Centric Lighting”, refers to the biological and visual impact lighting can have on the health and well being of humans.

Are you a lighting supplier? Are you looking for more ways to encourage your customers to switch to LED lighting?

Lighting solutions that allow individuals to adjust lighting levels, and the use of daylight-like lighting has been proven to help people who suffer from migraines, and mental health diseases such as anxiety and depression.

LED Lighting Manufacturing: Better for the Planet

You probably already know that LED lighting is better for the environment than traditional compact fluorescent bulbs and incandescent bulbs.

Did you know that the act of manufacturing LED lighting itself is also better for the environment?

LED bulbs consume less power per unit (lumen) of light emitted. This reduces greenhouse emissions from power plants, and carbon dioxide emissions for LEDs are also low. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “lighting accounts for a fifth of the energy consumption in a U.S. household.”
In addition:

  • LEDs generate less heat during use, so cooling costs for the average consumer are lower
  • LED lights do not contain hazardous mercury, like compact fluorescent bulbs do
  • Longer lifespan of LEDs means less production, packaging, shipping costs, transportation, and disposal

Are you looking for way to reduce your carbon footprint?
