While LED lighting has many benefits, there are some potential downsides to be aware of as well.
The heavy blue light emissions from LED bulbs present a major downside for human health. Unlike warmer incandescent lights, the cool blue glow of LEDs can disrupt our natural circadian rhythms. This blue-rich light exposure in the evening suppresses melatonin and impairs our ability to fall and stay asleep.
Bedrooms lit with multiple LED sources can make it challenging to get restful sleep. The blue wavelengths tell our bodies it’s daytime well into the night. Ensuring minimal use of LED lighting at night helps safeguard your sleep from the disruptive effects of blue light overexposure. Warm white or amber LED varieties are better options for bedrooms and other evening environments.
