Transcript of Use of Fluorescent Lighting Video

NARRATOR: A man in a kitchen.

BRYAN: Fluorescent lighting has the advantage of providing very even lighting, with very few shadows. However, some people feel like there’s a little bit of glare from overhead ceiling lighting in fluorescent lamps, such as in offices and grocery stores and schools. When used in ceiling lighting, it’s helpful to provide a very bright, even lighting for the entire room. When used in a task lamp, such as a swing arm or a clamp-on lamp, it can help with food preparation and writing and keeping your books. When used under the counter, fluorescent lighting could be helpful in a kitchen, for illuminating small appliances. In a workshop, for illuminating tools. Or for a sewing area.
