LED lighting is energy efficient, long lasting, versatile and increasingly popular in lighting designs.

Have you taken more notice of LED lighting lately? If you have, it isn’t surprising. LED lighting is becoming a popular choice for exterior holiday decorating. Did you watch the dazzling Times Square Ball drop to ring in 2016? Fun fact: The ball is illuminated with 32, 356 Philips Luxeon Rebel LED bulbs! The term LED stands for “light emitting diodes” and with the help of four different color modules, LED bulbs can create a palette of over 16 million colors and billions of patterns. The possibilities aren’t just endless, they are gorgeous! So it should come as no surprise that LED bulbs are becoming increasingly popular for outdoor lighting schemes. Why? Find out as we discuss some of the advantages of LED lighting below.


LED bulbs last an amazingly long time – over a decade! Studies show that in order to burn your LED bulbs out, you’d have to keep them on for over a decade without turning them off. Are they pricier at first glance? Yes. But consider their longevity next time you’re torn between them and a more traditional lighting option that you will have to replace sooner.


One of the main reasons LED lighting is gaining popularity worldwide is because it is energy efficient and environmentally friendly. It takes less work and less emissions to transport and run LED lights. Additionally, they will save you money on energy costs (another factor to consider when you’re hesitant to front the money for them).


LED lighting is an especially great choice for outdoor lighting needs due to its durability. LED lights can withstand adverse weather like intense rain or snow; they are shock resistant and weather resistant. Not to mention, LED lighting can be incorporated into a number of outdoor lighting schemes and can be brightened and dimmed for preference.
