Here’s a hot tip…heating lamps can keep you cozy by the pool long after the sun sets. And you can
purchase any type you like to nicely accent your pool and patio area. There are freestanding units, wall
mounts and table top heaters. They come in colors including bronze, wicker, gun metal, copper plated,
stainless, mocha and more!
You also want to think carefully about the types of bulbs you buy for outdoor lighting. Thinking there is a
big difference between types of bulbs? You’re getting warm! The bulbs you choose can affect energy
savings, color and heat output…
Incandescent bulbs would be your cheapest, but their lifespan is only about 1,000 hours. Halogens are a
little more expensive, but they last about 2,500 hours. These were most popular a few years ago and are
most frequently purchased as replacement bulbs. Compact fluorescent bulbs are more costly yet, but
last about 6,000 hours. They use less energy, but their downside is that they offer poor color and low
levels of illumination. LEDs are today’s winner – the most advanced, offering deep, rich colors and about
40,000hours of illumination!
