Exterior LED bulbs for downlights
Have 8 exterior can lights in the soffit that shine down to accent the brick on our house. Looking to replace incandescent bulbs with LED lights. Lights are tied to a photocell and are on all night - they burn out after a few months and use a lot of energy. Tried CFL's but they are too white and don't look right - not soft yellow.
The can lights are mini-cans - bulbs approx 2.5" wide by 3.5" long.
Do they make these size LED bulbs that would work outside? Looked a some at Home Depot awhile back and think they all said for interior use only. Why is it they can't be used outside? If they are protected from rain (under the soffit), would you chance paying for them? If not, are there similar sized CFL's that look more like incandescents?
