When battling for the top spot in outdoor lighting, LED bulbs secure the lead over incandescent bulbs! LEDs offer a few more benefits, such as durability, energy efficiency, and safety. LEDs are more durable and can last for 50,000 hours or more, which is about 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs. They also use about 75% less energy than incandescent ones, which can help bring down your energy bill! They're also a safer option because they don't produce as much heat, making them cool to the touch and less likely to combust.

LED bulbs are an ideal choice for outdoor lighting because they are much more durable than their incandescent counterpart. LED lights are strong enough to withstand inclement weather, such as wind and rain. They're also more resistant to breakage due to being made from epoxy lenses, rather than glass. These types of lights also last much longer than incandescent ones. While incandescent lights typically have a lifespan of around 1,000 hours, LEDs have a lifespan of around 50,000 hours and possibly even longer. That's about 50 times longer than incandescent lighting! To provide your yard with long-lasting outdoor lighting, LED bulbs are the way to go.

Incandescent bulbs use more energy than LED bulbs, making LEDs more energy efficient.

If you are looking for outdoor lighting that will save energy and money, then LED bulbs are an ideal choice! LED bulbs use around 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs, which can save you money on your electric bills, making LEDs the more energy-efficient choice. A standard, incandescent bulb relies on electrical heating to emit light, which requires a large amount of energy and only about 2% - 10% of that energy is usable light. LED bulbs, on the other hand, emit light by using an electrical current, which is much more efficient. Nearly 100% of the energy emitted through this process is useable light, helping you save energy and preventing you from wasting money.

Installing LED bulbs is a safer option since they don't produce as much heat as incandescent bulbs.

The outdoor lighting you choose for your landscape should be safe for anyone or anything that may come into contact with it. LEDs produce less heat than incandescent bulbs, so they have a much lower risk of combusting. Due to their low heat output, they LED lights stay cool to the touch, so you won't need to worry about burning your hands if you touch them. Incandescent bulbs, however, release about 90% of their energy as heat, placing you at risk of burns and bulbs at risk of combusting. That's why LED lights are a much safer option!
