The world of LED lighting has come on in leaps and bounds in the past few years. Despite the relatively recent advances in technology, LEDs have all but taken over the market. It’s not surprising that they’ve become so popular with the advantages that they offer for both the environment, and your pocket. There have been several notable innovations in the world of LED lighting recently; let’s take a look at them.
Mimic the Sun with LED Lighting
There has been a great deal of coverage in the British media recently regarding the effect of the sun on the body’s cardiac rhythm, which has been proven to affect our sleep patterns and productivity. The body’s sleep-wake cycle is related to the cycle of the sun, making us feel alert as the day begins and sleepy as the light fades and the evening progresses. Cool white light mimics natural daylight, and is therefore more appropriate for daylight hours when we are naturally at our most productive. Warm light, on the other hand, mimics the sun setting, and is therefore better suited to evenings when our bodies are relaxing.
There are LED bulbs available now that allow you to vary the colour temperature of the bulb using a smartphone app. So, you can adjust your lightbulb to more of a white light in the daytime and a warmer light in the evenings. The latest technology, however, enables LED lights to automatically adjust their colour output based on the time of day, approximating the natural colours of sunlight. In addition to the pre-programmed mode, users are also able to program their own timetables in using an app, or even by flicking the normal on-off switch a few times when it suits them.
Choosing the Right LED Light Made Easy
As LED lighting suppliers, one of the most common issues we come across is confusion from customers regarding replacing their current incandescent or fluorescent lights with LED equivalents. Obviously, we are more than happy to talk you through the decision and explain the process, but if you’re searching online, there is a really useful website that you can use.
Which LED Light will help you to choose the exact LED bulb to meet your needs by walking you through the choices one step at a time. After making the selections, you are given a list of options that meet the selected criteria. The list includes direct links to retailers as well as the cost of the bulb and the amount of money you will save in electricity costs by switching from incandescent to that particular LED bulb. There’s also an LED bulb education section that explains lighting terminology in plain English.
