Entertainment, design, style, safety, security – the reasons for modern landscape lighting are many. From pure aesthetic to completely functional, today’s LED bulbs are offering longer lasting illumination good for any purpose. Long gone are incandescent bulbs requiring high maintenance with a short life span. LED lights offer a better value, a variety of hues and style, with less maintenance than their predecessor.
Although LED bulbs run at a higher per bulb price point, that money is quickly recouped through greater efficiency and long-term cost savings. On average, an LED bulb burns up to 50,000 hours (approximately 17.1 years) versus the 2,000 – 5,000 hours (approximately 1.7 years) offered by traditional incandescent bulbs. This increased life expectancy reduces both upkeep and utility costs. Longer lasting bulbs result in less service calls for maintenance and bulb replacements. And, since LED bulbs run at a lower wattage, you can have equal to, or more, LED bulbs and still see cost savings. Low wattage LED bulbs also require less energy to burn, translating into less money spent on electricity.
The savings are applicable whether the goal is retrofitting a pre-existing lighting scheme or installing a new system. LED bulbs come in a variety of sizes and styles to easily retrofit a current system. Whether it’s flood lights, path lights, lamps, etc. there are LED bulbs available to meet the needs of any landscape lighting design. Further, the savings are even more apparent when installing a new system with LED lights. LED lights requires smaller transformers and less wire than incandescent bulbs, meaning less labor and material costs during the installation.
LED lights offer a diverse array of hues and colors to fit any landscape lighting design. Whereas incandescent bulbs offer only the traditional yellow hue, or 2700k (the temperature at which the bulb burns), Led lights range from yellow to light blue (2700 – 6000K). Providing a wider range of options to compliment a home’s exterior color, landscape and garden beds, and overall brightness and visibility. Further, LED lights are also available in variety of colors and color changing systems to make any outdoor living space party ready.
