3 uses for LEDs in winter
There's no denying that the winter weather is on us. Cold weather, ice-covered windshields, and dark mornings and early nights can be difficult to adjust. LED lighting is an excellent choice all year round, but it is the only light on the market that works just as well, if not better, in cold conditions.
This makes them an excellent choice for outdoor winter lighting, such as security wall packages, store signage and street parking and lighting. Read on to find out why!
1. SAFETY AND FREE AIR LIGHTING
During the winter, most of our days are spent in the dark. With sunrise after 7 a.m. and the setting at 5 p.m., we depend on the lighting of our homes, parking lots, offices and more to keep us alert and focused. This makes LED safety and outdoor lighting an excellent choice during winter. Whether you install a motion sensor wall package in your garage or place LED bulbs in your wall lamp, front door light, LEDs will withstand the winter weather. Because LEDs do not require excessive heat to function properly, they work extremely well in extreme weather conditions!
2. OUTDOOR SIGNAGE
We've all witnessed the dreaded sign in the burnt tent. Either it's completely out, or the letters blink and have difficulty turning on. These traditional light failures occur for some reasons; whether it's a dead bulb or the lack of heat that traditional lighting needs to light up and stay on. When you use LED bulbs in your outdoor signage, your lights will turn on instantly and stay on. In fact, the use of LED lights during cold weather months can increase its overall lifespan.
3. PARKING LOT AND STREET LIGHTING.
The winter months are always accompanied by shorter days, which makes travelers heavily dependent on streetlight lights and parking to keep us safe and alert on the road. However, traditional streetlights are dim, often orange, and often turn off. Studies have shown that replacing these lights with LEDs keeps drivers more alert and parked safer.
