Purchasing The Right Solar Shed Light

Solar lights are become increasingly popular due to the amount of money that they can save someone each month and how easy they are to install. They are more commonly used to light up the outside of the home and the yard around it. It is for this reason that many people have a hard time knowing what to look for in a solar shed light.

Size

Before you decide on how much you want to spend and what features it should have try to consider how large it should be. Measure the width and height of your shed. The large the shed the bigger the lights. You might even have to purchase more than one if you think that it is not enough to light the entire building.

Features

There are not any fancy features when it comes to solar shed lights but there are enough to make some more appealing than others. The most important feature to consider is a motion sensor. These lights will turn on when they sense that someone or something is near and requires the light. This will mean that it will turn on when someone opens the door. Other features to consider are a longer battery life and LED or halogen lights. The brighter the light the more help it provides.

Installation

In most cases every solar shed light will be installed the same way. They all come with a solar panel and a light. The panel is installed onto the side or the roof of the home where it will receive the most amount of sunlight throughout the day. It is better to find one that can be installed on any type of shed (wood, plastic, and metal) than on just one.

Price

Price is always something that we have to consider. A single light will cost you anywhere between $20 to $150. The price will vary depending on how large it is and what features it has. If you use your shed quite a bit than you will want to invest more money into it. If you rarely enter your shed than why not spend as little money as possible.
