What kind of weather will your solar deck lights be exposed to?
Since deck lights are mostly meant for the outdoor areas surrounding the home, you should expect that they will be exposed to different weather conditions. While each lamp has its own degree of resistance, not all of them might be able to withstand extreme weather conditions.
Have it in mind that there would be:
- Strong winds
- Heavy rain/flooding
- Extreme sun and heat of up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit
- Frost and/or snow
You should consider the area where you reside before opting for one. For instance, if you live in the tropical regions such as Nigeria, you should find a model that is ideal for the environment– one that can handle large amounts of rain and extreme heat as well.
What Amount of Light do You Need?
Every solar deck lamp emits a specific amount of light (listed in lumens). 600 lm is equivalent to a 10W LED light. You should know that the greater the lumen, the brighter the light will be.
Also, the size of the solar panel is another important determinant of your light’s brightness because the bigger the solar panel, the greater the light produced.
Some people choose to go with solar deck lights with small built-in panels that would only beautify their yards.
While this may be beautiful, you should have in mind that it won’t do well at keeping away intruders or helping you with watching your steps around your home when it is night.
If you want to illuminate a larger space, then you should go for solar deck lamps that have a larger light radius and higher lumen rating. If possible, go for the sets that have 6 or more in one pack. This will help you save costs.
What to look out for when purchasing Solar Deck Light
At this point, I’m sure you must have considered having the solar light installed in your residence.
What are the things you should look out for before making a purchase?
Nobody deserves to be subjected to the agony of purchasing one only to end up with a dim light or one that doesn’t last long.
Think about functionality
You should think of the purpose for which you are purchasing the solar light and ascertain if the one you want to purchase will meet your expectation.
The LED Lights
The LEDs ought to be strong and robust since what we are talking about here are deck lights that are mounted in the outer space of the house.
The Location were you will install it
The location of the deck light matters too. Will you have it standing (as in the solar post light) or will you have it hanging on the wall? Do you want to use it in lighting your gardens or your pathway? You shouldn’t have your solar deck light misplaced.
Of course, you have to consider price in every purchase you want to make. You should go with your budget, however; you should know that most times, price matches the quality. If you want high-quality solar deck light, then you might have to pay higher to get it installed.
