8. Switch to LEDs Incandescent bulbs and tubes tend to radiate a lot of heat, which adds to the sweltering feeling during the high-heat months – especially when you are seated close to them. Smaller or closed spaces like this study area would feel a lot hotter because of the proximity to incandescent lights. LEDs, on the other hand, don’t warm up fast or emit too much heat. As they use less electricity, they have lower carbon emissions and don’t add as much to global warming.
For work areas that don’t have natural light, the artificial lights become very important. It needs two types of lighting; ambient light and task light. The ambient light sets the mood of the space and should provide equal illumination to the entire room. While the focus of the task light has to be your exact work area, it has to provide sufficient and proper illumination on the desk to make reading and writing easier. Try out lights of different intensities to figure out which one works for you. The ambient lights shouldn’t be too bright while the task light should not be too dim. The purpose of the lighting is to create a comfortable ambience and not strain your eyes.
