As you have probably already noticed, there are A LOT of different options and choices of floodlights available on the market today. For many people, there are simply too many options, and this makes the entire process of finding the best flood light – the right flood light – too much of a challenge.
Due to the myriad of advancements that have taken place within the field of LED flood lights, there is both a wide variety of options and a huge swathe of information.
In this quick buying guide, we’re going to narrow things down and put together the most vital and important information. All of this information will enable you to pick and choose the best 100W LED flood light for your needs and desires.
Now, let’s begin!
What Are The Things That I Must Consider When Searching For The Best 100W LED Flood Light?
When purchasing the best 100W LED flood light, there are a couple of things that you must always take into consideration.
Cost & Affordability
As mentioned earlier, a lot of advancements have taken place within the field of LED floodlights. These advancements have proven to be quite beneficial to the average customer because LEDs are as cheap as they have ever been.
Naturally, you’re going to want to find an LED flood light that is affordable, while remaining of high-quality.
Many of the bigger brands are charging a great deal of money for their LEDs. While these are trusted brands, the quality is generally the same as smaller, less expensive brands. In some cases, the smaller brands produce even better LEDs than those of the bigger, more expensive brands.
Make sure to compare prices between different brands and, most important of all, read the reviews and use these reviews to help discern the quality of the brands you are looking at.
The Lumens Each Bulb Puts Out
Naturally, you’re going to want an LED flood light that is, well, bright. Most LEDs measure their overall brightness using lumens, which is a very specific unit of measurement.
Now, while a lot of the marketing material may have you believe that wattages are an accurate and precise way of measuring and discerning the light that is put out, it really isn’t.
Finding the lumens each bulb puts out can be a bit tricky. Most of the time, though, you can find this information by doing some online research, and reading reviews. That’s assuming, of course, that the product page doesn’t have this information.
Sometimes, though, these things don’t actually tell you how many lumens are put out, per watt. That is really the most important thing you need to look at because if you have, say, a 1000W LED floodlight that puts out very few lumens per watt, then it doesn’t matter how many watts the LED is because it just doesn’t put out enough light.
Without getting into the specifics of things like “light spectrum” and how color plays a big part in light, let’s just say that color is a very important part of any LED.
Most of this is just about aesthetics, but the right color can make the space you are lighting up a lot brighter, allowing you to see things with a great deal of clarity.
For this reason, it’s important to make sure that you are buying an LED flood light that has a good, strong color that enables your space to be even brighter and more clear. Rather than darker and less visible.
Being Able To Dim The Bulb
For some people, this isn’t much of a problem. For others, it’s very important that they have the option to dim the bulb.
If this is the case for you, then you’re going to need an LED flood light that not only enables you to do this but something that also has a good dimming. Something smooth and light, without creating any kind of buzzing or flickering, which can be detrimental to the bulb and the light itself.
At the end of the day, finding the best 100W LED flood light really isn’t that hard. You just need to be aware of the factors that were mentioned above, and you need to be willing to do your research, to make sure that every facet is aligned with what you want and what you need.
