The Benefits of LED Pool Lights
Written by Jason Whitewood / Posted on 30 November 2018
Owning a pool is fun and rewarding since it lets you exercise, practice hydrotherapy, cool off after a long day, throw a party and keep the kids entertained. If you have a heater, you can maintain a comfortable temperature all year round; if you install LED pool lights, you can keep using your pool after dark. Lighting up your pool with LED lights, instead of relying on external poolside lights or other types of pool lighting, is eco-friendly, cost efficient and aesthetically appealing.
Southside Pool Service is your one-stop shop of swimming pool supplies in Perth and we offer a range of high quality LED pool lights. Here are some of its benefits:
Light emitting diodes (LED) are small light emitting devices that pass through a semiconductor electronic component. When the two terminals ‒ anode and cathode ‒ of LED are connected to a voltage source, the electrons move at the p and n junction and it releases energy in the form of photons; this effect is called electroluminescence. The gap of energy in the semiconductor determines the colour of the light produced.
Traditional lighting systems use heat that creates an effect called incandescence. This system produces about 90 per cent more heat than light, which means some of the electrical energy is lost. The wasted electrical energy and the heat and carbon dioxide emissions add to the warming of the atmosphere.
The LED lights use electroluminescence which means that it does not have all the negative effects of the traditional lighting systems.
Since LED lights do not consume as much energy as other lighting systems, you can save more electrical bills. LED bulbs can be illuminated and last between 20,000 to 50,000 hours. That’s five times longer than any other bulb on the market. This means that you do not have to replace them as often as other lighting systems, including incandescent, fluorescent and other types, saving maintenance and replacement costs.
Installing a light in your pool will improve visibility, which in turn will improve safety during night swimming. However, LED lights provide much more than visibility and safety. They can establish moods thanks to a feature of being able to produce different colours. Ambient and warm lighting can create a relaxed atmosphere, while bright and vibrant lighting add fun and excitement. By using LED pool lights you are not only saving money, but you are also saving the environment. It is an alternative solution that does not compromise the aesthetic value of your property.
