Houston, TX – Best Options for Water-Resistant LED Applications, Indoors & Out

BY: Norman Kirby, US LED, INC.

Springtime may bring with it lots of rain showers, but this is hardly something electricians or contractors look forward to, especially when installing LED lighting. Like most lighting, LEDs and water are not a good combination. 

Exposure to water and moisture can lead to dangers like electrical shock, or it can cause shorts and rising in electrical LED lighting. Does this mean that LED lights cannot be used outdoors at all? No, fortunately, there are ways to protect and weatherproof your LED lights from water or moisture.

Kitchens

LED lighting installation in the kitchen is a popular option. Areas of lighting in or around the sink may be more susceptible to moisture. In these locations, a conformal coating can be applied to LED lights to act as a seal that keeps out moisture or LED strips.

Bathrooms

Bathrooms are becoming more and more popular for LED lighting, especially accent lighting behind mirrors or under-toe kicks. In this area, again, an LED strip can be protected to withstand the steam of a hot shower in the bathroom. Conformal coating comes to the rescue once again. However, if this is not an option because of spacing, weather-resistant LED flex can also be used and housed in clear silicone to protect from water contact.

Outdoor Spaces

There are many great ways to add LED light fixtures to an outdoor space to add ambiance. 

You Can add theme planters, benches, mailboxes, or just around the yard. For outdoor spaces, it is recommended to use weather-resistant LED lighting options. A silicone tube protects water from rainfall or sprinklers from coming into contact with the bulb itself, while an additional seal on the ends protects the connection points.
