Question

How far should I sit from the EnergyLight?

Answer

You can place the EnergyLight at various distances from 8-24 inches, depending on what is most comfortable for you. The closer you sit to the appliance, the less time you need to get the recommended daily dose of light:

   

  • At a distance of approx. 8 inches, the light intensity is approx. 10,000 lux, which means that a light bath at this distance takes about 30 minutes.
  • At a distance of approx. 16 inches, the light intensity is approx. 5000 lux, which means that a light bath at this distance takes about one hour.
  • At a distance of approx. 24 inches, the light intensity is approx. 2500 lux, which means that a light bath at this distance takes about 2 hours.
If you do not want to have to think about duration and distances, we recommend using Philips EnergyLight type HF 3009, which comes with a built-in user protocol and digital feedback on energy and time (including an energy bar, timer and pause button) to make your daily light baths as convenient as possible.
