As a businessperson, you should constantly be looking for ways in which you can improve on the production side of your business. And there are many well-known methods of doing so such as increasing capital, increasing the number of employees, and increasing demand by adding customer incentives. These are tips that translate to a higher production as well as success. But did you know that the lighting system in your business also has a say in your output? Actually, it has been found that a business or an office that has a better lighting system tends to produce more goods and services as compared to a business that has a poor lighting system.
How Does Lighting Help To Increase Production?
Lighting affects the physical as well as mental condition of your workers. A good lighting system reduces the level of stress in your employees and boosts their energy levels, alertness and mood. If this happens, your employees will be a happy lot and they will increase their production capacities. Poor lighting on the other hand causes eye strain, drowsiness, and boredom. These three lead to a loss of concentration which in turn leads to reduced production at work. At times, poor lighting can be responsible for severe effects like headaches. This may prompt your employees to ask for temporary leave which will still hurt your production.
What Makes Up The Best Artificial Lighting System?
According to studies, you should install bulbs in your offices depending on strength of the bulbs, which is measured in Kelvin. When objects -- including bulbs -- are heated, they emit different colors depending on the degree of heat.
These colors are further categorized into three: the lower color temperatures, the mid-range color temperatures, and the higher color temperatures. Higher color temperatures (4600K) appear blue-white and should be installed in rooms that involve a lot of brainstorming since the blue color has an ability of increasing alertness. Mid-range color (3100K to 4600K) have a cool white appearance and are more suitable in areas where you want to create a friendly environment. As for lower color temperatures, or the warm colors, the highest they can measure is 3000K. The colors in this spectrum range from yellowish-white to red. Warm colors create a comfort and you can use them in rooms or offices where you want your employees to feel relaxed.
When you are having your lighting system installed, pay attention to uniformity. This means that every square meter in your office should receive an equal share of the light. Contact an electrician for more information.Share
