LED Lights Are Better for Sun-Sensitivities than CFLs

It is a known fact that UV radiations can cause a number of health problems, out- and indoors, CFLs being known to generate UV. They can cause problems for UV sensitive persons, and even if you’re not, there is a chance that you have things in your home that are. Art, especially paintings, can be damaged over time, and if you own a cellar, you definitively don’t want anything that will spoil your wine or change its peak drinking date.

The best, most efficient and environmentally friendly solution is LED lighting, as they do not emit UV rays (and also don’t contain mercury, a toxic substance that makes CFLs hard to dispose of). LED pucks and strip lights are perfect to illuminate art and also fit in least accessible spaces, which allows you to illuminate the area you want.
