Most of the talk about LED lamps has focused upon indoor application. But the fact is that you can use such bulbs both indoors and outdoors. There is a good deal of logic in placing LED bulbs outside wherever possible, unless you particularly enjoy climbing ladders on a regular basis to replace flood lights.
Security that Lasts
If you have gone to the trouble of installing security lights such as motion sensitive flood lights, you want them to light quickly and brightly every time. CFL bulbs have a warm up period, which makes them a poor choice for this application. LED bulbs come on instantly, and they can handle repeated cycling with ease. Available in a variety of styles, with or without solar panels, LED security lamps offer both safety and affordable convenience.
Light up Your Paths
A majority of currently available LED pathway lights require a cord, but a few are now available with solar panels attached. The energy draw from an entire string of lights is minimal, costing only pennies a day. The bulbs will never need to be replaced and only you will know that you are being energy efficient while decorating your property attractively.
In addition to standard pathway lights you can also access a variety of ornamental lighting that is designed to use LED bulbs rather than incandescent. Sconces, stepping stones and garden lights are all designed specifically for LED lighting.
You could hardly fail to notice how LED bulbs are taking over the Christmas lighting experience. Some stores even offered discounts for people who were willing to bring in their old incandescent strands.
Not only can you now afford to go all out when decorating, since the cost of powering the lights will be significantly lower, but when one bulb burns out, the rest of the strand will stay lit. Imagine setting up your holiday lights without having to try and figure out which bulb is the faulty one!
LED lamps are economically superior, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, eliminate mercury dangers and can be used just about anywhere; they just make good sense.
