What to Consider When Choosing LED Outdoor Lighting
You should consider the following when choosing LED outdoor lighting:
Light color temperature. This is measured in Kelvin (K) and refers to the warmth or coolness of a light’s color. Warm, yellowish lights have a lower color temperature, while whites and blues have higher temperatures.
Light color. Most LED outdoor lights are available in either warm white or cool white hues (with slight variations between bulbs of each), but there are also other choices such as red/orange/yellow tints if you’re looking for something more unique.
Light angle: Different LEDs emit different amounts of light at different angles—which can affect how well your outdoor area is lit up at night—so pay attention to this specification when researching fixtures before buying them!
Lighting brightness: This refers to lumens (lm), which indicate how much usable light output you’ll get from each fixture type installed outside your home or business premises; higher numbers mean brighter fixtures that direct more illumination onto surfaces where it matters most.
High-quality lights are the answer
- High-quality LED lights are better than other types of lights. They’re more energy-efficient, last longer, and are brighter than almost any other types of lighting.
- High-quality LED lights use less electricity over the course of their lifespan than traditional HID lights (which is good for your wallet).
The durability of the Lights and Fixtures
LED lights last much longer than traditional HID lights, but how long do they last? LEDs have a lifespan of 50,000 – 100,000 hours. That’s about 10-20 years of operation at 12 hours per day!

Quality and proper installation are key
When it comes to quality, you want to ensure that the fixture is made of high-quality materials. There are a lot of cheap LED fixtures out there, but if you pay attention to the brand name and materials used, you can tell if it’s a good one or not. For installations there is a wide difference between a journeyman and a fly-by-night contractor – be careful! Use someone you know and trust.
If you’re looking to light up your outdoor space, consider using LEDs. They are the most economical choice and they are energy efficient. The best part is they’re easy to install! If you have questions about choosing the right lights for your property, feel free to contact us at [email protected].
