As the temperature dramatically increases and the humidity levels drop this time of year, many open, wood and charcoal fires become prohibited across various parts of the United States and Canada. Due to the growing danger of human-caused wildfires, widespread fire bans are commonly implemented during extreme heat periods in order to prevent forest devastation and stretching firefighting resources that may be needed for natural occurring fires. Since global temperatures seem to be on the rise each year, homeowners have been seemingly forced to accept the presence and restrictions of the inevitability of wildfire season. That being said since social, backyard bonfires and open-fire grilling probably won’t fit into your summer plans this year, we recommend using LED garden lights as a safe, vibrant substitute during seasonal fire bans.
LED garden lights are safer
One of the most amazing things about LED bulbs is that they are able to run at a cooler temperature than the average incandescent light. So, since LEDs don’t need to produce as much heat, they’re a much safer and more energy-efficient choice during the summer season where wildfires are more rampant. While LED bulbs will still be hot if they’re touched (about 140°F to 212° F) the average incandescent is 357°F and the average halogen bulb is about 267°F. So, the reality is that LEDs are far cooler and less likely to accidentally catch fire or overheat.
LED garden lights are vibrant
The empowering thing about investing in LED garden lighting is that they have the ability to create an ambient setting that’s almost as enjoyable as the blazing hue of a campfire. Lighting up the elemental details of your backyard surroundings, these low voltage lights can provide a breathtaking glow to the entirety of your outdoor space. Available in an array of show-stopping options — directional lights, mushroom lights, floodlights and accent light — these proficient lighting options will ensure that you get to use your backyard space to its fullest potential year-round.
LED garden lights illuminate your outdoor gatherings
Summertime is all about spending extra time outdoors, so when it comes to social gatherings such as BBQs and birthdays, utilizing the power of LED garden lights combats the disappoint of the inevitable fire bans. Start by placing some area lighting in your backyard space in order to illuminate your socialization area. After all, the power or LED bulbs greatly out ways incandescent bulbs in terms of brightness and power. This means that you’ll hardly believe that the sun has gone down when you install some otherworldly, intense lights and cross off this element on your summer must-do list.
So, if you’re looking to erase the blues of implemented fire bans, perhaps some LED garden lights would resolve your lighting dilemmas.
