Why don’t we use sodium lights in our homes?



  1. 0 Votes

    Sodium lights are what commonly light up the streets at night, producing the dim dark orange glow we find so familiar. These street lights are low pressure sodium bulbs and are used because the brightness level is low enough as to limit light pollution. High pressure sodium bulbs are brighter, but usually burn from pink to almost pure light, but contain mercury. The low brightness and mercury, make sodium lights undesirable for home lighting.
