A very important thing with LED G24 PL specifically is they consume significantly less energy than, while still offering you an amount of light which could only be matched using a huge amount of bulbs or less efficient halogen floodlights. Also, they are manufactured to last 50,000 hours which can be far beyond their halogen counterparts.
You will find a host of additional features available too, including motion sensors and timers. See below
At LEDHut, we also stock portable and solar floodlights, much more of which down the road inside the article.
To start with, location is very important. Just how much area needs lit up? Are you gonna be intruding on your neighbour’s property? Will you be distorting the vision of oncoming drivers? It is possible to generally steer clear of the latter if you make sure the floodlight is pointed downwards at a 22° angle. However, these are typically very important considerations before mounting your floodlight.
As with all LED lights, floodlight brightness is most accurately measured in lumens, instead of watts. As an example, a 10W LED floodlight will offer out your same brightness (900 lumens) as a 60W halogen, but it’ll consume far less energy.
Some LED floodlights come with additional sensors that can detect motion, be set to keep on for some time after detecting the motion, and might be tuned into the future on at dusk.
These all have their own own advantages. Motion and dusk to dawn detection is brilliant for security purposes, while a timer will make sure no energy is wasted by shutting off automatically. Obviously, you continue to need to consider your neighbours privacy when using the sensor.
