Does this week’s arctic blast have you scrambling to prepare for the plummeting temperatures?
Many folks are prepping for the big freeze by wrapping pipes, opening cabinet doors, turning on faucets, shoveling driveways, bringing in plants and pets.
That collective sigh of relief you just heard was from YOLO outdoor TV owners after realizing their outdoor TV is engineered for this (white) stuff.
YOLO outdoor TVs have an operating range of -22F to 120F degrees. Not that you’re going to make a habit out of watching your outdoor tv in -22F degree weather! But, rest assured, if you wanted to, you can. And when temperatures climb back up to 60F degrees next week when the blast is gone, and you’re family is ready for roasting marshmallows by the firepit, your YOLO TV will be ready too.
The general rule of thumb for led screens is this: the colder it is, the better it runs.
Why Do YOLO TVs Perform So Well in Cold Weather?
Unlike traditional lighting, the LEDs in a YOLO TV do not get hot to the touch, as they require far less heat to power. Therefore, operating in cold temperatures is, well… a breeze.
LEDs work best in cold temperatures because less thermal stress (changes in temperatures) is put on the components. Thus, they remain unaffected by cold ambient temperatures and are able to turn on instantly.
YOLO outdoor TVs are installed with fully automatic closed-loop air circulation systems. The closed-loop air circulation system transfers moisture and heat from the TV cabinet to help it achieve the desired temperature conditions.
In fact, studies show that when installed in cold applications, LEDs rate of degradation reduces and their lumen output improves.
24/7/365 Operation in Standby Mode in Extreme Cold (-10F and below) Conditions
When your YOLO outdoor TV is turned on, its components (led tiles, power supplier and control boards) heat up. This heat is then contained within the metal cabinet housing every single module. This process creates a warmer and drier microclimate inside each cabinet, which is ideal for a YOLO TV to operate in extreme cold (-10F and below) temperatures.
If you can not have your TV working 24 hours a day (e.g. for some city regulations), then the second-best thing you can do is to keep the TV screen in stand-by (or black) at night. This means that the TV is actually “alive” but it is simply not displaying any image, exactly like when you shut it down with the remote control.
When looking at the TV, you can not tell the difference between one that is turned-off and one that is on standby, but this makes a big difference inside. When the TV is in stand-by, its components are alive and still producing some heat. Of course, it is much less than the heat produced when the TV is working, but it is still better than no heat at all.
In fact, YOLO TVs have a function that allows you to put the TV in standby mode with a single click. This feature was developed specifically for our TVs installed in harsh winter conditions.
So, while the freeze brings a frenetic pace to protecting your people, pets and home. Know that your YOLO outdoor TV was built to withstand Mother Nature’s wrath so that you can rest easy knowing that when you and your family are ready to brave the outside world, Your Outdoor Living Oasis TV will be ready too.
