​Why use LED flood lights? This article explains their many benefits.

If you’re shopping for a LED retrofit kit, don’t be surprised if you see a lot of people buy flood lights. These fixtures have been around for a long time but they are more in demand now than ever, and that is because they’ve proven very useful. If you have yet to avail of these fixtures the following information will show how versatile and useful they are.

An All-around Light Fixture

The first and most obvious benefit of these flood lights is their versatility. You can use them in everything from stadiums, playgrounds, theaters and the house perimeters as well. Compared to other lighting fixtures, flood lights offer greater flexibility and can do a lot more.

Long Lasting and Efficient

LED lights have a long lifespan which makes them a more cost effective option than traditional lighting. Some fast facts here:

If you use LED light for 10 hours a day, a single light is going to last around 13 years.

LED lights do not emit heat the way incandescent lights do, so it doesn’t heat the area where it’s been installed

LED light lifespans are 10 times longer compared to fluorescent, incandescent or halogen lights

LED lights also don’t just suddenly go out like other fixtures: instead it slowly dims, giving you time to buy a replacement, whereas other lights just give out suddenly. And since the light has a very long lifespan, you can just install it one time and forget about it as it’ll literally take years before a replacement is needed.

Cost Effective and Reliable

These flood lights are cost effective: whereas with other fixtures you need to have a constant supply, with LED you just need to order a set one time and not worry about it for years to come. If you’ve got a warehouse or operating a stadium, management becomes easier.

Energy Efficient

We have touched on this earlier but we can now go into details: flood lights that use LED are more energy efficient as they eliminate the need for incessant bulb replacements. Replacing bulbs is not only expensive but wasteful as well. LED fixtures also don’t use as much electricity, making it a practical choice. The savings depend on how many lights you use and other factors, but it’s going to be significant.

Product Friendly

One of the problems with fluorescent and other light sources is they increase the temperature around the area they are used. This makes them impractical to use in cold storage facilities as well as stadiums, but LED doesn’t produce that kind of effect: not only do these lights conserve energy, but they won’t generate unnecessary heat.


The bottom line is LED flood lights are cost efficient, durable and built for long term use. You save money and time, and you don’t have to set aside a lot of resources for light fixture inventory. Add the fact that these flood lights are encased in solid material, and it is ideal for commercial and residential use.
