LED flood lights are a cost-effective alternative to traditional halogen bulbs for use in both domestic and industrial environments. Different floodlights are suitable for different spaces and uses. How can you quickly determine the best floodlight for your specific needs? What is the best floodlight?
This passage is going to talk about the following introductions of LED flood light:
1) Why to choose LED flood lights?
2) Comparing traditional halogen floodlights and LED flood lights
3) Advantages of LED flood lights
LED flood lights are 90% more energy efficient than their halogen equivalents. LED flood lights operate reliably at low temperatures (often as low as -20°C). LED flood lights are resistant to shock or vibration. LED flood lights have a long life and reduced maintenance, making them ideal for hard-to-reach areas.
Domestic and industrial floodlights - what's the difference?
Typically, domestic floodlights are needed to illuminate relatively small areas and are often used for decorative and security purposes. Using too bright a floodlight in a building area may cause disturbance to neighbors.
Industrial spaces are often larger and require more powerful floodlights to fully illuminate them. Industrial floodlights are used for practical purposes - to provide reliable safety and to ensure that employees can work safely outside of daylight hours.
Domestic floodlights range from 400lm to 3,000lm
Industrial floodlights range from 4,000lm to 24,000lm
4000lm - 5,000lm floodlights may also be suitable for larger domestic floors.
In the past, we measured the brightness of a light bulb in watts (w). Now, however, the energy-saving nature of LED lighting means that counting watts don't provide enough information. For example, a 10w LED flood light is equivalent to a 100w halogen floodlight with an increased lumen output of 900.
A 20w LED flood light is equivalent to a 200w halogen floodlight, with an increase in lumen output of 1,800.
A 30w LED flood light is equivalent to a 300w halogen floodlight with an increase in lumen output of 2,700.
Traditionally, most outdoor floodlights use halogen bulbs, which consume 20 to 30 percent less energy than older incandescent bulbs, but because of their energy-saving potential, it is far inferior to LED bulbs. In this case, the biggest advantage of LED bulbs is their long life. Where a halogen bulb might last about 2,000 hours, an LED flood light might last 30,000 hours or more. In addition to the cost savings that come with long life, this also means you don't have to go through the hassle of replacing floodlights (or bulbs) nearly as often. This alone is a good reason to upgrade to LED flood lights.
Of course, you'll also want to make sure that the searchlights you're installing don't cause problems for your neighbors. The government suggests that artificial light becomes a nuisance when it "unreasonably and substantially interferes with the use or use of a house or other premise” or "is injurious or likely to be injurious to health". An example of this would be artificial light shining directly into a neighbor's bedroom window, disturbing their sleep.
Nuisance lighting can be reported to the local council, which will assess the complaint and issue a pollution abatement notice if it does find the nuisance to be justified. A little planning can prevent this altogether. Make sure the light is not excessively bright and that it is not pointed directly at your neighbor's house. In some cases, this may mean that you can't install the lights exactly where you planned, but in the long run, it will be less of a hassle and help to maintain good relations with your neighbors. You can also recommend our LED flood lights to your neighbors.
