Daylight LED light bulbs for productivity and mood

According to an article published by the Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC-Chapel Hill, “One of the most striking factors influencing how we work is the color temperature of the light source we are exposed to on a regular basis.” As it turns out, the most beneficial color temperature of light for human beings is natural light. Natural light has been found to improve mood, energy, alertness, and productivity. 

The next best thing to natural light is natural-light mimicking LED bulbs. These bulbs are marked “Daylight” and they emit a calming white light which makes things appear natural. This should be the primary type of lighting you choose for your office. 

The right commercial lighting creates a good first impression

Everyone who walks into your lobby, waiting room, greeting space, or common areas will notice your lighting. Poor lighting and missing bulbs can give potential clients or upper management a negative impression of your building.

Improve energy efficiency and lower energy costs

Updating your commercial building’s lighting with LED technology will not only improve productivity and make your building look its best, it will also improve the energy efficiency of your building and lower energy costs. LED bulbs use less energy and last longer than other types of commercial lighting. This upgrade alone will lower your operating costs because they are cheaper to run, maintain, and need to be replaced less. 

Improved commercial lighting technology, such as smart controls, allows you to control how and when your building is lit from a centralized location. This will make managing your building easier and more efficient. Smart controls help decrease energy costs by only lighting areas of your building when they are in use, giving you greater control of your energy consumption.
