    Can ambient temperature affect LED performance?

     From a technical point of view, LED fixtures must be designed with an adequate heat sink or thermal management system to allow the junction temperature to be minimised as much as possible to allow operation in high ambient temperatures.

    High temperatures can reduce lifespan and light output of LEDs and unlike fluorescents, cold temperatures do not affect output performance of LEDs any where near as much.
