Because there is such a wide amount of different kinds of gazebo lights to buy, let us go over some of the actual kinds of lights and their functions and uses.
Heat lights radiate heat for you and your guests without putting out any smoke, fumes or smell. Most gazebo heat lamps and lights are designed to be clamped to any surface making them idea for awnings, gazebos, parasols and marquees etc. They spread a nice and warm glow and can increase the time you spend outdoors with a targeted heating via low frequency waves. The can also be used as just lights and range from 4W to 1200W for all strengths of heat and can be focused on a certain area creating a basking site which stimulate your guests and provide ample warmth on chilly evenings.
Infra Red lights are also used as heat lights. They are often larger and more powerful making them ideal gazebo heaters and are designed to be attached to vertical surfaces outdoors. Infra red lights keep you and your guest snug and warm with no fumes or smells and smoke. They warm directly without wasting energy by needing to heat the air in between and are ideal for patios, hot tubs, marquees or garden gazebos for extending your gazebo time in the cool evenings or any time of the year. Infra red lights are silent and fume free, environmentally friendly and are designed to be wall or post mounted with a heat that can travel up to 5 meters.
LED lights come in many shapes and sizes. They are often battery or solar powered and will self activate when it gets dark. LED lights add style and flare to gazebos all year round and are great for using at parties, weddings, summer tents or just for pure decorative reasons. Just think how magical your garden gazebo is going to look when the sun sets and you see the twinkle of star shaped LED’s. Most LED lights are super bright and are battery powered or use rechargeable batteries and solar recharging. LED lights are fully weather resistant and use about the same power as a remote control which makes them safe for all outside uses. You can place LED lights anywhere you want like around your gazebo, in locations in your garden like in flower pots or up garden paths or can be fixed onto fences, walls or roofs. Solar powered LED lights can be used as security lights for dark paths, sheds or gazebos and some have automatic sensors that activate at dusk time or are automatically operated by motion sensors.
Solar lights work by pulling their power and charge from the sun and are perfect for people that want lights without tapping into an electricity supply. You just need to place them where they get uninterrupted sunlight and then they will come on alone when it starts to get dark. Solar lights will add colour and life to garden gazebos and come in many types and sizes making them perfect for decorating trees and gazebos or anywhere that you want some extra light. Solar lights are environmentally friendly but only work depending on the amount of light they get in the day which is reduced in winter months. Still solar lights are fun, fast and easy to install with no wiring required.
Lanterns are very traditional forms of lighting for gazebos and are often either hanging or free standing. Lanterns can be electrical or candle powered. And while lanterns don’t offer the same heat effect of heating lights they can add a lot of style to your gazebo being handcrafted from iron and having intricate patterns on them making them popular choices. Lanterns can be used indoors and outdoors and are often hand painted with glass windows and a door on the side for easy access to replace the candle inside. Lanterns can sit on tables or be hanging from a ceiling thanks to the hooks on the top being strong and sturdy a good lantern should last you for for years. Some lanterns have patterns on the sides so they omit shapes when the light shines through like butterflies and stars for example which can look stunning during the darker hours.
Hanging lights create a lovely focal point for gazebos and come in many shapes and sizes. Either battery or mains powered. Hanging lights can add a elegant and stylish and traditional look to your garden gazebo. Electrical hanging lights need to be all weatherproof and are best made from a rust free stainless steel or some kind of durable weather resistant resin. Hanging lights are perfect for lighting gazebos, pergolas, sheds etc.
