Fluorescent lighting gets a bad wrap, but there’s a reason why it’s the most common lighting solution. Fluorescent bulbs use up less energy, generate less heat and produce more light than other lighting alternatives. For businesses with office buildings, this is the most energy efficient and cost effective choice. Aside from all of the cost benefits, fluorescent lighting is a problem for a lot of people.
Headaches, Eyestrain and Glare, Oh My!
Okay the title is really cheesy, but it just came to me while thinking about all of the harmful effects of the fluorescent lighting. I’m sitting under a fluorescent light right now actually. Maybe you are too? The glare doesn’t make Friday’s go by any faster. Glare has been know to cause headaches from day-to-day exposure, even migraines! Lucky for me, and other employees in my office, all of our bulbs are covered with the finest acrylic plastic and fluorescent lighting filters known to man. But, you may not be so lucky.
The Serious Problem
