Mounting lights onto a window with no incoming light
I currently have a window that does not have any natural light, because it faces a wall just 1 inch away. I'm hoping to simulate natural light with one of your lighting options. What do you suggest?
Our full spectrum lighting options sound like a great solution for your situation.
In general, our 4000K or 5000K products with 95 CRI will provide you with the best simulation of natural daylight. Our CENTRIC DAYLIGHT A19 bulbs fit into standard screw-base sockets and maybe a great, straightforward option for you.
Depending on the dimensions and mounting options of your window, our T5 integrated linear fixtures may also be worth considering.
The T5 integrated linear fixture sounds great. The inside dimension of the window is 70 inches wide and 46 inches tall. Do you think a single 2-ft fixture will be sufficient?
Based on these dimensions, up to three 2-ft T5 light fixtures could be used to evenly fill the space.
These 2-ft T5 light fixtures can also be daisy-chained together, which means they can all connect to a single power outlet.
Since the window faces the outside, there is some condensation on the window glass. Do you think condensation would be an issue?
Based on the information available to us, it is difficult to say with any certainty whether or not condensation would still be an issue for these fixture mounting solutions.
It may be worth investigating for the presence of moisture on or near your window, in order to have a better idea of the safety hazards which might be present. If, for example, visible water droplets are present, that would certainly be a situation where condensation would indeed be a safety concern.
