LED Lighting Is Essential For Your Outdoor Living Space

tri star electric led-lightingOutdoor lighting has evolved in the last decade and is essential to any residential and commercial property. One of the most common outdoor lighting options are LED lights. Let’s review some benefits of installing outdoor LED lighting at your home or business.

Greater Energy-Efficiency

A great benefit of having outdoor LED lighting is its energy efficiency. LED bulbs use only 10 watts instead of 60 watts on average compared to incandescent bulbs. They also have a longer lifespan, lasting 25 times longer, and use at least 75 percent less energy. This is especially true for LED bulbs with the ENERGY STAR rating. To save more energy, it would be best to use LED lighting throughout your home, both indoors and outdoors.

LED Lighting Offers A Longer Lifespan

Traditional light bulbs don’t last as long as LED light bulbs. You’ll feel how hot it can get when you touch a conventional light bulb. But heat can reduce the bulb’s lifespan. That’s why LEDs are a better option because they’re much cooler. LEDs use a semiconductor to generate light, producing less heat. Incandescent bulbs aren’t ideal because their heat can damage the wiring, circuits, and filaments. This makes them less efficient and requires them to be replaced more frequently. On the other hand, outdoor LED lighting features plastic instead of glass, which makes them more durable and better suited to handle extreme temperature changes and harsh weather conditions.

Increased Illumination

Typically, metal-halide lights light up streets, sidewalks, and entryways that gradually dim over time. However, LED lights maintain their brightness and produce more lumens as long as they receive electricity. Contemporary outdoor LED lighting is exceptionally bright, making it great for floodlights and security lights for your home’s exterior.

Enhance The Mood Of Your Outdoor Living Space

If you appreciate stylish lighting and enjoy creating a unique ambiance, outdoor LED lights may be the perfect choice. With LED lighting, homeowners can change the color of their lights, all within the same set. You can personalize the colors for special occasions or show support for your favorite sports team.
