The Basics of LED Lighting

ShareThis
Did you know that lighting can affect your mood and concentration? With people spending more time indoors, at home, school, and work, the sun alone can no longer meet all their lighting needs. Because of this, many people invest in LED lighting to enjoy some of the many benefits it brings to the table.
 
What Is LED Lighting?
 
Short for light-emitting diodes, LED devices are considered solid-state lighting devices because they do not use gases to convert electricity into light. LEDs also tend to direct light in a specific direction, unlike other forms of lighting that tend to emit light in all directions. Most LED lights appear white due to the blue light produced and its combination with phosphor materials. Manufacturers may also use these materials to create red, green, and true-blue lights.
 
What Are the Benefits?
 
The most common benefit you may already know of when it comes to LEDs is that they are extremely energy efficient. In fact, they are considered the most energy-efficient option currently available. They can cut energy bills in half when switching from more conventional lighting options. LED lighting also lasts 20 times longer than other bulbs. Finally, they neither use, nor emit, harmful chemicals and they are 100% recyclable.
 
What About Mood and Concentration?
 
Light helps people to focus more, but it depends on the type of light. White light tends to wake people up, while amber lighting indicates to the body that it is time to slow down. Alertness, and the ability to retain important information, also improves with bright light. In addition to this, it helps treat depression. This is not only effective for people during harsh winter conditions, but also people who work night shifts.
