Outdoor LED Lighting
LED lights make the perfect outdoor lighting solution as they are energy efficient, withstand low temperatures and have a reliable long life. Having outdoor LED lighting can be slightly more expensive to set up when compared to other options but the money saved in energy can offset this investment. Unlike other energy efficient lighting, LEDs don’t take time to warm up, so the light turns bright instantly which is vital if they are being used as outdoor security lighting.

A Guide to Outdoor LED Lighting
LED bulbs differ from traditional incandescent bulbs in the way that the light is produced. Old fashioned incandescent bulbs create light by passing electricity through a thin wire filament. LEDs produce light using a semi-conductor which emits the light energy when a current is passed through it. This way of producing light is also different to other energy saving bulbs which use mercury vapour to create UV light. The UV light is then absorbed by a phosphor coating inside the lamp which makes the bulb glow.
Outdoor lighting is an important safety and security feature for domestic and business properties. Ensuring pathways and entrances have good lighting enables people to navigate spaces easily and safely with less risk of tripping and struggling to open the front door in the middle of the night. Well illuminated outdoor areas clearly show that a property is inhabited and maintained which can deter trespassing and theft.
Outdoor LED lighting is ideal for enhancing the appearance of your outside space. As LED lights can withstand low temperatures they are ideal for use throughout your landscape design. When winter comes you can be confident that they won’t fail in the cold weather.
A well illuminated entrance to your home makes the space feel welcoming and inviting. If you select one of our outdoor LED lights that has a downlight feature this helps to direct the light to exactly where it is required while helping to avoid light pollution.
