Light up with LEDs
May 2, 2022
Summer is on its way, and Georgia homeowners are busy preparing swimming pools for the season. If you haven’t already made the switch, LED pool lights are one of the easiest and most practical upgrades you can make.
Brighter. Older incandescent pool lights give off a warm glow, which is further dimmed by the water. LEDs emit bright white light that makes night swimming safer.
Longer lifespan. Durable LED pool lights can last for well over 20,000 hours and might not need replacing for a decade or more. An incandescent bulb’s lifespan is about 5,000 hours.
Energy efficient. LED light bulbs use just 10 percent of the energy to produce the same amount of light as their incandescent equivalents.
Diversity. LED lights have microprocessors that allow them to exhibit a wide range of colors. Some systems can display light shows of varied color and timing combinations.
In most pools, bulb replacement is easy. Simply unscrew your incandescent bulb and install the LED lamp, then watch the energy and electricity bill savings roll in.
