New LED Bulbs: How They Influence Hormones, Interiors and Budgets?
Short winter days call for good and comfortable lighting in our homes. Nowadays light is not just a bulb: it has a great influence on our physiology and emotional well-being, advances our biorhythms, gets us fired up for work in the morning and helps to fall asleep faster in the evening. People tend to more personalization when it comes to lighting and feel the need to illuminate their homes in different ways.
Struggling with autumn blues becomes easier with LED light bulbs of new generation, which change color with a switch. Now a user may select the lighting mode to his liking: warm (with the temperature of 2,700 degrees of Kelvin) or cold (6,500 degrees of Kelvin). Scientifically it is proven that color temperature has an impact on the secretion of our hormones. Cold light makes our body produce cortisol, the stress hormone. That’s why it’s suitable for doing work, which requires high concentration, or for doing morning exercises. By warm light a completely different hormone is produced – melatonin, the sleep hormone. It helps us relax and would be great for doing Pilates or reading.
Contemporary LED lamps are not just a functional item for illuminating the room, but also a decorative accessory. For example, LED filament light bulbs from Philips DECO Classic series look so traditional and classical that can be fit into any interior or even used in a shadeless lamp. LED elements inserted in these bulbs resemble filaments of incandescent lamps, and a great diversity of shapes lets you find the right model for any lamp. Warm light of filament bulbs is more pleasing to the eye and adds the sense of coziness to the atmosphere. And its classical design looks aesthetic both in on and off positions.
Besides their influence on body and decorative functions, all LED bulbs are about 10 times more efficient in energy-saving than incandescent lamps. They last up to 15,000 hours and help to save up to 90% of your costs for lighting. And they are equipped with standard caps, which make it possible to use these bulbs in any standard lamps.
