LED outdoor lights are widely regarded as the future of outdoor lighting. They are available in all the same formats as traditional lighting but are an incredibly cost effective alternative which offer great value for money.
The technology behind LED or Light Emitting Diode bulbs means that they use up to 80% less electricity than traditional bulbs. This makes them ideal for use in high energy applications such as floodlights or even security lights. The bulbs also need replacing far less frequently than traditional bulbs, ensuring that you will continue to save money for a long time to come.
LED lights can be used in all sorts of settings. For example they create a beautiful, ambient glow along paths and walkways. Walkover lights can even be installed in decking to provide low cost mood lighting in your outdoor space.
Another popular use of LED outdoor lights is in bollards or as wall lights. The long life of the bulb means that they will continue to shine brightly for years with minimal maintenance or additional cost.
LED light bulbs last an average of 50,000 hours. Compared to the average lifespan of an incandescent bulb at 1000 hours, or even compact florescent bulbs at 6000 hours, this represents excellent value for money in terms of both replacing failed bulbs and maintenance costs.
LED lights are also incredibly durable and will not break if affected by heavy vibrations. This is another factor that makes them an increasingly popular choice for essential outdoor lighting such as security lights.
If you are looking for a cost effective, durable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional floodlights and security lights, LED lighting is a great option to go for. They create a brighter light in a shorter amount of time than a traditional bulb and will last for years with minimal maintenance.
