Some Questions About Led Lighting Answered

Considering that led lighting may still be new to many people, we provide ten common questions and answers about led lighting for you to get started.

1. Which colour temperature for which room? | Any-lamp

Which colour temperature for which room? The arrival of LED lighting has ensured that light sources are nowadays available in many different colour temperatures. Therefore, it is not as obvious anymore which light colour should be used for your home or business. Every space has a different function. In general, the activities in a room determine which light colour is needed. When you are at work, you usually need more light than when you spend an evening at home with friends or family. With warm colour temperatures, it is mainly a matter of personal taste. These Kelvin values vary between 1800K and 3000K. In this blog, we will give you various guidelines about the light colour or range that is the most suitable for a particular space in your home or business. Which light colour should you use in which room? You encounter lighting everywhere. Every home or business has various rooms that all need to be illuminated with a specific light colour. For your convenience, we have made an overview of the rooms in homes and various general areas in companies. This way you will know what the most suitable colour temperature is for rooms with themes such as receiving guests, relaxation, food preparation, sleeping, sanitary needs and work. What is the most suitable colour temperature for reception areas and front desks? Reception areas and front desks are places where visitors or (business) guests arrive. It is a place in which people are welcomed and companies immediately give a first impression. Therefore, a fresh and relaxed atmosphere fits perfectly within these areas. Depending on the amount of natural daylight, the colour temperatures very warm white (2700K) and warm white (3000K) are most suitable. With a diversity of LED lights sources you can perfectly illuminate the room and even match the lights to the design. With various fittings and shapes, (very) warm white LED lighting can be installed in every (designer) fixture. What is the most suitable light colour for living rooms, dining rooms and recreation areas? Living rooms and dining rooms are areas where you get together and socialize with friends and family. Just as recreational rooms provide the necessary relaxation for young and old. These rooms have one thing in common: they are spaces full of atmosphere. A cozy mood is easy to create with lighting that has a warm appearance. Therefore, the light colour very warm white (1800-2700K) is very suitable. Due to the diversity of activities that take place in these rooms (for example game evenings, drinks, dinners, film marathons or reading a book), these rooms are multifunctional. If you want to be able to adjust the atmosphere to the activity, then dimmable DimTone LED bulbs are a perfect solution. These light bulbs have not one, but several light colours that can also be dimmed! Moreover, very warm white LED light sources are available in various fittings. Therefore, LED lights are available for every (designer) fixture. What is the most suitable colour temperature for kitchens and canteens? Kitchens and canteens often have two functions. Food is prepared and food is eaten. Although the cooking area is a workplace, the dining area needs a certain amount of atmosphere. After all, during the lunch break at work or while eating a meal at home, you want to relax and / or socialize with family, friends or colleagues. Therefore, the colour temperature warm white (3000K) is a good compromise. If you would like a warmer appearance during breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can choose dimmable LED lighting or you can use a mix of light colours. The latter can be dealt with by complementing the general lighting with 2200 - 2700K LED bulbs. These can be placed in a (designer) fixture above the dining table. The same applies to the seating area in canteens. What is the most suitable light colour for bedrooms? The main function of a bedroom is sleeping. No surprise there. It is a place where you can relax, maybe even without being disturbed. Lighting does not play a role while sleeping, but it is important for other activities. You might watch TV or read a book. Moreover, you get dressed in this room. The light colours very warm white (2200-2700K) and warm white (3000K) are the most suitable for bedrooms. In general, people do not prefer to wake up with too bright lighting. Therefore, warm white lighting can be perceived as too bright by some people. Because the colour preference of lighting in a bedroom differs for each person, dimmable LED lights or DimTone light bulbs are a smart solution. Of course you can also opt for various colour temperatures. In this case you can distinguish between general lighting and warmer mood lighting (for example with accent lighting or lamps on the bedside table). What is the most suitable colour temperature for bathrooms and toilets areas? For sanitary facilities, the light colour depends on what the space is used for. Toilets in homes, but also companies and catering establishments, are preferably illuminated with the colour temperature very warm white (2700K) or warm white (3000K). This also applies to the general lighting in bathrooms. Especially if you use these rooms in the evening or in the morning. After all, you do not want to be blinded by too bright lighting. For activities such as shaving, plucking eyebrows and applying make-up, it is better to use the light colour cool white (4000K). Cool white mirror lighting is a good option for this. Think of LED GU10 spots or LED GU5.3 spots that can easily be installed in the ceiling or in a mirror cabinet / mirror frame. This ensures that this cooler light colour is limited to the area where you perform these activities. What is the most suitable light colour for home workspaces and offices? In general, offices and home workplaces are areas where people need to concentrate. The light colour cool white (4000K) is known for its fresh appearance, which allows people to work actively and focused on their daily activities. Although there are various light sources and fixtures with a cool white light, it is recommended for offices to install cool white LED panels with UGR

2. Which Type of Lighting is Best for Workplace Wellness

When it comes to workplace hazards, rarely does the mind go to lighting; it is often taken for granted. Consider this: without light from a natural or artificial source, we would not be able to complete our work. Because lighting plays such an integral role in our ability to produce quality work, it begs consideration when it comes to the different types of lighting and their various effects on workplace wellness. There are three primary lighting types found in average workplaces. They include, incandescent, fluorescent, and LED (Light-emitting Diodes). Each lighting type has distinct features: Incandescent: This lighting source tends to be found in older structures. It is not energy efficient and it emits quite a bit of heat. Despite its energy consumption, incandescent lights are considered to be environmentally friendly, due to their non-use of mercury. Fluorescent: Fluorescent lighting is much more energy-efficient than incandescent lighting, and it emits lower amounts of heat. However, the cornerstone of fluorescent lighting is its use of mercury, making it less friendly to the environment. LED: LEDs are considered the best option for lighting in workplaces because they use low energy amounts, do not emit heat, and are environmentally friendly. The cost up front to install LED lighting is considered higher, but the long-term investment is considered to yield the best ROI, as LEDs outlast the other lighting sources quite significantly. Incandescent lights (not to be confused with halogen lights) are being phased out by the Canadian government because of concerns over their inefficient use of energy. Likewise, fluorescent lighting, while cost-effective, is losing favour over concerns that the mercury they contain may leak into the environment if they are not properly disposed of. This leaves LED lighting as the top option for most workplaces. Fluorescent lighting also remains popular and can still be found in many workplaces. Which Type of Lighting is Best? The evidence regarding the effect that lighting has on workplace wellness is relatively inconclusive. However, most studies show that better lighting increases productivity and that lighting that is too dim or too harsh reduces it. Regardless if you choose LED or fluorescent lights, the lighting needs to be appropriate to the task. When it comes to LED lighting, it's been suggested that it causes more headaches, particularly in migraine sufferers. Fluorescent lighting has also been shown to cause headaches. Is the lighting the cause of a headache, or is it just a by-product of lighting being everywhere? The jury is still out. However, more studies suggest that fluorescent lighting is especially problematic for migraine sufferers. As well, any lighting that creates harmful glare should be addressed, as glare causes headaches and eyestrain. Let the Sun Shine In Aside from the artificial light sources discussed above, there remains another very important light source that is often overlooked: natural light from the sun. Eco-business published a study that examined the effects of natural light on office workers. The results were astounding and included: Office workers who sat near a window reported 46 more minutes of sleep nightly than those who did not Productivity and sales increased 3%-40% among office workers exposed to natural lighting sources The results are not surprising; the study also identifies natural light sources as the number one desired element in workplace designs. If that is not making the case for window seating, then perhaps this will: daylight is known to promote human productivity and health potential. When it comes to workplace wellness initiates, simply opening the blinds seems to have a positive impact. So, what type of lighting is best? It seems that natural lighting, supplemented with LED artificial lighting is the preferred combination for optimal wellness results. However, where natural light is not possible, LED or fluorescent lighting that is appropriate to the task is a suitable alternative.
