Outdoor lighting is a great feature to add to your property in Nebraska, as it allows you to use your outdoor living space after the sun has set. While many people are unsure of what type of bulbs they should use for their outdoor lighting, the answer is clear - you should use LED bulbs for your outdoor lighting system. LEDs are better than incandescent bulbs for several reasons. For one, LED lights are extremely long-lasting and can last up to 30 times longer than incandescent bulbs. They're also energy efficient and will help you save money on your electric bill because they consume less energy than incandescent bulbs. What’s more, LED bulbs are built to withstand harsh weather conditions, such as rain and snow, which makes them perfect for outdoor use. Additionally, LED bulbs are safer than incandescent bulbs, as they don’t produce any heat, so you won’t burn yourself if you touch them.
LED light bulbs are much more durable than incandescent bulbs.
When compared to incandescent bulbs, LED light bulbs are incredibly durable. LED bulbs are made of epoxy lenses that are resistant to breakage, meaning that they can endure rough handling without breaking. In contrast, incandescent bulbs are made of glass, making them susceptible to damage and prone to shattering when dropped. Because of this, LED bulbs are a much better option for outdoor lighting purposes.
LED light bulbs are very energy-efficient.
One of the biggest advantages of using LED light bulbs over incandescent bulbs is their energy efficiency. LED bulbs consume significantly less energy than incandescent bulbs. This means that they cost you far fewer dollars per year in terms of electricity costs. By using LED bulbs for your outdoor lighting system, your energy bill will be much lower than if you were to use incandescent bulbs.
According to the Department of Energy, LED bulbs use at least 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs!
LED light bulbs are safer than incandescent bulbs.
LED light bulbs offer several safety benefits when compared to incandescent bulbs. One of the most significant differences between the two types of bulbs is that LED bulbs do not produce any heat. Since they don’t generate heat, you won’t burn yourself if you touch them like you would with incandescent bulbs. Another advantage of LED bulbs is that they don’t contain any hazardous materials, unlike incandescent bulbs, which have been known to contain mercury. Because LED bulbs don’t contain these potentially harmful substances, they are considered safer to handle and dispose of.
LED light bulbs last much longer than incandescent bulbs.
When you invest in an outdoor lighting system, the last thing you want to do is to worry about changing out the bulbs all the time. Well, when you use LED bulbs for your lighting system, that will not be a task that you'll have to do often. That's because LED bulbs can last as long as 100,000 hours, which is roughly 30 times longer than incandescent bulbs! So, if longevity is going to play a factor in which type of bulb to use for your outdoor lighting system, go with LEDs!
