THE FAILINGS OF OUTDOOR INCANDESCENT LIGHTS
OUTDOOR LED LIGHTS FOR THE WIN!
Where incandescent lights do well in warmer environments, LEDs excel in both warm and cold weather. Outdoor LED lights work well in winter weather due to their unique heat sink design. The diodes in LED bulbs do become hot, but the heat is redirected to the heat sink. The heat is pulled way from the diode because, while the diode may be warm, LEDs do not require heat to turn on and stay on. In fact, 90 percent of the energy LEDs use creates light, leaving only 10 percent that creates heat.
