Why you should upgrade to LED flood lights
Upgrading to LED flood lights for security and safety purposes can work wonders. Here, we at Inui talk about some of the main benefits of LED flood lights.
Security and safety
High-powered LED flood lights provide improved security for domestic and commercial properties. PIR (Passive Infrared) movement sensors also ensure lighting is utilised as required, combining security with efficiency.
Walkways and running paths brightly lit with LED flood lights will deter crime and help to create a greater sense of safety at nighttime. LED flood lights can also have a positive impact on adjacent buildings, transforming drab or ominous spaces into attractive and accessible places for use during the nighttime.
Increased energy efficiency
LED flood lights are several lightyears more energy efficient in comparison to old Metal Halide or Halogen lighting. This is due to the fact that LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) produce light using diodes which require less energy in comparison to Metal Halide and Halogen lights.
Metal Halide and Halogen lights utilise filaments which generate a large amount of heat wastage as a by-product when they are producing light. This wasted heat also causes Metal Halide and Halogen lights to fail more quickly, and this short lifespan drives up the costs of maintenance and light replacement.
LED flood lights offer a much longer lifespan and require minimal maintenance compared to Metal Halide and Halogen lights. They can last up to a staggering 50,000 hours, whereas Metal Halide and Halogen lights only last between 6,000 and 15,000 hours. It can be a right pain when you know you have to keep replacing lights and using LED flood lights will help to alleviate this hassle and make your life easier.
There will come a time when your flood lights are on the blink and need replacing. Signs your LED flood lights need replacing as soon as possible include flickering, a persistent humming/buzzing noise, intermittent flashes, or the light being visibly too dim.
Reduce your carbon emissions
LED flood lights require less electricity for a comparable light output produced by Metal Halide and Halogen lighting. Reduction in electricity usage decreases the carbon emissions produced through the burning of fossil fuels. This reduction in pollution levels has long-term benefits for both the environment and human health!
Another environmental consequence of Metal Halide or Halogen lights is that they become hazardous waste when you dispose of them. This is because the gases and mercury they contain need to undergo special disposal procedures to avoid environmental contamination.
Since LED flood lights do not require continual replacement, there is less wastage, and this is another factor that makes them a green form of energy.
Drastically lower your energy bills
Increases in energy prices in recent times have truly affected us all, including business owners looking to use energy for commercial purposes as well as individuals trying to cover their household bills.
Fortunately, one of the benefits of upgrading to LED flood lights is that their greater energy efficiency means your electricity bills will fall down in price overnight, and you’ll get a lot more for your money. Looking to make shrewd savings on your flood lights? Then going for LED flood lights is a no-brainer.
LED flood lights are made from durable materials such as aluminium, copper, and stainless steel. This durability allows these flood lights to withstand extreme temperatures and continue operating up to as much as 85°C. So, Inui’s flood lights are perfectly capable of standing the test of time.
The lumen (light) output of LED flood lights is way more powerful than Metal Halide or Halogen lighting. Usually, fewer LED lights, operating at a lower wattage, are able to achieve a more powerful light output than that of Metal Halide or Halogen lights. LED flood lights produce instant light, so you won’t have the bother of the 'warming up' period that you get with Metal Halide lights.
What’s more, there is no heat wastage or ventilation required, as is often necessary with Halogen lights. LED flood lights are also dimmable - a handy feature that is both difficult and expensive to achieve with Metal Halide lights.
Custom to your needs
Finally, upgrading to LED flood lights can help create a number of lighting effects that will suit any particular setting. With a broad choice of colour temperatures at your fingertips, from warm white to natural daylight, right through to cool white and customised beam angles, you’ll find that any environment can be enhanced and have its mood altered with LED flood lights.
