Advantages Of LED Outdoor Lighting
LED outdoor lighting has many advantages over conventional incandescent, fluorescent, even halogen outdoor lighting options. With more and more homeowners choosing LED lighting for their garden, patio and home security needs, LED lighting technology is advancing more rapidly than ever. This makes choosing LED outdoor lighting for your home easier than ever.
Let’s Take A Look At Some Of The Advantages Of LED Outdoor Lighting:
Energy Efficiency- LED outdoor lighting uses around 50% less energy than traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen options. This can lead to significant energy savings and can save you a lot of money as well. LED lighting is also better when trying to light up your garden area at night as it creates a brighter, whiter light that can be aimed more easily.
Extended Life- LED outdoor lights typically last longer than traditional outdoor light bulbs. Many LED bulbs can last between 30,000 and 50,000 hours or more. Typical incandescent bulb lasts only about 1,000 hours. This can save homeowners money and can ensure their outdoor security lighting will be ready when they need it.
Durability- LED outdoor lights are highly resistant to breakage, vibration and other impacts. LEDs are mounted directly onto a circuit board and connected with soldered leads which make them much more durable than conventional outdoor lighting.
Better Cold Temperature Operation- unlike traditional fluorescent outdoor lighting, LED outdoor lighting operates even in the coldest of temperatures. This means that your LED outdoor security lighting will always be bright from the moment you turn them on, even in winter.
No IR Or UV Emissions- LED outdoor lights give off no IR or UV emissions whereas conventional lighting converts much of the energy they use to create infrared (IR) or radiated heat and ultraviolet radiation (UV).
Instant On- while fluorescent and HID lamps take some time to get to full brightness, LED lighting provides 100-percent brightness almost instantly.
Better Control- most conventional lighting solutions are not easily dimmable and they might require additional equipment to make them easier to control. LED outdoor lighting uses semiconductors making them easily controllable for less money.
Intelligence- using modern technology, LED lighting can be connected to a smart home system making the lights voice activated, dimmable and easier to set on timers.
