When it comes to lighting up the exterior of your residence or commercial building, safety concerns should always be kept as a priority. Lighting is an important part of outdoor safety and if you don’t provide enough light you, or somebody else, could potentially run into a problem. When you don’t have enough lighting available, you could potentially find yourself at the other end of a damaging lawsuit.

You’ll be able to see the difference right away and will feel safer entering and exiting the building during the evening or night time hours.
Long-Term LED Benefits
The long-term benefits of switching over to LED lights include energy savings and lower costs for your lighting bills. You can expect a reduction of your overall operating costs for electricity by as much as 25% to 33%. There is also less maintenance required since these lights can last for 10 to 20 years without needing to be changed.
LED Lighting Exterior Options
Your options include the following types of lights:
Uplights – These lights shine upward from the ground
Wall packs – A wall pack is mounted directly on the building approximately 15 feet to 25 feet from the ground.
Bollards – These lights are perfect for lining walkways and are approximately 2 feet to 3 feet in height.
Roadway lights – Roadway lights are used for lighting larger areas such as alleyways and streets.
