We are all aware of the importance of natural light within a home. For some this can even be the deciding factor on whether or not to purchase a property. So why don’t we take the same care when deciding upon a perfect place to set up our workplace? Many offices around the UK are extremely dependent on artificial light, a lot with very few, if any, windows. Here at Huddersfield based Clear View we know how important natural light in an office or commercial property is, and how the benefits it can bring cannot be underestimated.
It has been proven that an office with plenty of natural light is a more productive environment. Artificial light can cause eye strain and fatigue and is not conducive to getting the best out of your employees.
Studies have shown that those who sit by a window in their place of work get on average around 45 minutes more sleep a night than those who work under artificial light. Exposure to natural light promotes a healthier sleeping pattern and as any healthcare professional will tell you, a good night’s sleep is key to your physical and mental health.
An office bathed in natural light reduces the need for artificial light and therefore can reduce your electricity bills. Saving your business a substantial amount of money over time.
So what can you do?
Take a look at your office or workspace and assess whether you are making the most of the natural light on offer. Would your property benefit from a skylight or roof lantern as an extra injection of natural light? Are there enough windows and are they placed in the most effective areas?
