The Health Benefits of Sunlight - and How LED Linear Lighting Compares
Posted on April 5,2017 by Randy Tang
Maximize sunlight & supplement it with LED Linear Lighting
It's a fact - everyone loves to get out into the sun every once and a while,And as the weather continue to warm, we find staying inside harder than ever. But what if you could make the lighting in your office possess some of the health and feel-good benefits of sunlight? You can, with the high-CRI LED Linear Lighting and by designing a floor plan to include several sunroofs.

According to studies published in Lighting Research & Technology and Energy & Buildings, spaces featuring daylight-sensing controls can reduce the energy used for electric lights by 20-60 percent when utlizied correctly.

But,natural lighting has more benefits than just conserving energy.According to Achitectural Lighting Magazine, daylighting offers many aesthetic and health benefits, including increasing occupant productivity and comfort while providing the stimulation needed to regulate human circadian rhythms - or internal body clock.According to Psychology Today, those who are exposed to natural light during work hours sleep an average of 46 minutes more per night than those who do not.

​LED Linear Lighting

It's well known that LED Linear Light boast long lifespans and consume less power than Fluorescent bulbs - sometimes as much as 80 percent less, And while LED Linear Lights come in a variety of brightness level, including a daylight variation, multipe studies have shown natural llight improves the mood and productivity amongest employees and high ( 90+ ) -CRI LED Linear Lighting with color temperatures ranging from 5200-6000K is the closest artificial lighting can come to natural sunlight.

The Similarities Between LEDs and Sunlight

Believe it or not,LED lights have a lot in common with sunlight. LEDs can mimic the hue and intensity of natural sunlight and help to maintain the human body's natural circadian rhythm.This is because LED components allows for finer adjustments of color, brightness and intensity.

According to a recent articel in the Wall Street Journal, some homes are being equipped with LED lighting that automatically mimics sunlight by changing from soft,warm amber in the morning to bright, cool white during the dayand then back to amber in the evening. Research said this helps counteract the disruptive effect of conventional artificial lighting on the body's circadian rhythm.

Maximizing Daylighting

To execute daylighting correctly, excessive glare and temperature increases due to solar heat gain must be taken into consideration. Both of these factors can be detrimental to occupants if no handled correctly.Installing automated shades or dynamic glazing,which automatically tints to maximizine natural light while reducing heat and glare, can curb these issues.

Want happier, more productive workers? Consider Incorporating natural lighting or LED Linear lighting into your next office makeover.
