LED lighting has found its way into many practical applications, but one of the less-known features of the light source is its resistance to extreme cold temperatures, which could make it perfect for outdoor applications.
If you're a grocery store owner or a chef, a great way to cut down on your utility bills is to replace your standard fixtures with an LED light bar in your freezer unit. Along with energy efficiency, the cold-resistant fixture will provide an abundance of light that will make finding products far easier for your workers.
LED rope lights are also perfect for illuminating your walkways or railings during the wintertime. They are encased in durable PVC tubing that is water-resistant and will continue to glow in the harshest conditions. Another idea is to use LED rope lights on your bushes or near flower beds to show off your home's finest features year-round.
According to the CreeLEDRevolition.com, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that widespread adoption of LED lighting by 2025 will reduce electricity demands by 62 percent and eliminate 258 million metric tons of carbon emissions.
