If your New Year’s resolution has been to update the exterior of your home and save on your light bill, installing LED landscape lighting could help you do both. LED lighting is energy efficient and can provide a more modern look to your landscape lighting. Even if you currently have a halogen system, you may be able to convert it to LED. LED landscape lighting has many advantages, including:
More Energy Efficient. LED lights are 90% more efficient than bulbs used in traditional landscape lighting systems.
Lower Carbon Footprint. LED is a “greener” technology as it emits less carbon dioxide.
Lasts Longer. Compared to traditional halogen lightbulb, which has the longevity of up to 4,000 hours, LED lights last up to 20,000 hours!
Less Insect Activity. Unlike LED lights, halogen lightbulbs emit UV light, which attracts insects. By switching to LED lights, you can potentially decrease insect activity in recreational areas like your backyard.
Better Visibility. When LED landscape lighting first came out, residents were weary of using them as they produced only a faint glow. Now, you are able to choose from a variety of light intensity and hues of LED lights. In areas such as walkways and stairs, using high intensity LED lights could help prevent accidents.
