LED technology has helped businesses achieve desired profit at the least possible time. But the rewards don’t end there as LED lights have been proven to offer health benefits as well.
You heard it right. Because LED tubes are made out of a different kind of plastic, they don’t have mercury in them so they pose no harm in the body and can be easily and safely disposed of. Below are just some of its other health benefits.
So when you see a LED sign display down the street, you know it doesn’t just promote a business establishment, it also promotes good health.
No flickering/distracting sound
As opposed to fluorescent and incandescent lights, LED lights don’t flicker so they won’t cause eye injuries and headache or won’t aggravate illnesses like migraine or epilepsy. Irritation caused by noise pollution wouldn’t be a problem as LED lights are quiet and do not produce any hum.
No UV emissions
Because they don’t emit UV radiation, LED lights are safe when used in close proximity. As we all know, overexposure to UV radiation, which fluorescent emit, may cause skin diseases like skin cancer. LED lights have none of that.
Good for the sleep-deprived
LED lights have been known to help improve sleep as well as aid in depression and anxiety when people are exposed to it throughout the day. A study with senior citizens as subjects yielded positive results, and this is why LED signs are starting to become popular in nursing homes.
There are many other benefits of LED light bulbs, and they go from cosmetic to environmental, which we will tackle in one of the future articles. A lot of these benefits come from the fact that LEDs emit light at very precise wavelengths. For these additional reasons, switching to LED signage should require no mental effort.
