LED Lighting is well known for its light quality, energy efficiency and money saving qualities. It is definitely better for businesses as the bulbs last a lot longer, and the bulbs can be dimmed as required, thus saving more energy. But is it actually better for people working in offices?
The simple answer to this is yes. Installing LED lighting can actually help to create a happier and more productive workforce.
Bright white light that mimics daylight can improve performance for people at work. Studies have shown an improvement in productivity and alertness with LED lighting, as well as an improvement in mood and comfort amongst workers. One study in the US actually showed slower response times on cognitive tasks and assessments with fluorescent lighting as opposed to LED.
Dimly lit offices and work environments can negatively affect the mental and emotional well-being of employees, leading to physical illness and absences.
With the ability to control lux levels, lighting can be kept at optimal levels, reducing eyestrain and discomfort, whilst also saving you money by reducing energy used on sunnier days when you can make the most of the natural sunlight.
Another benefit is increased safety with visibility improved for workers – the chances of falls or harmful injuries are reduced.
When you combine potential energy savings for a business of up to 90% with a more productive, happier and healthier workforce, you start to realise why switching the LED lighting for your office is a no brainer.
