When LED lighting first came into the outdoor lighting arena, it was touted as being the most superior outdoor lighting technology on the market. While there were numerous benefits to LED lighting, we, and some of our clients, didn’t feel it was a perfect match for illuminating homes and landscapes.
The first thing that made LED lighting a little unappealing was that the color wasn’t what people were expecting. It was extremely bright, too bright in fact, resulting in a bluish color that skewed the color on the façade of the home. However, in recent years, LED landscape lighting technology has improved dramatically. Now we can configure the color of LED lighting to fit your desired lighting level.
The affect LED lighting has on a home’s façade is usually our clients’ first concern. Now with the updated and refined LED technology, our LED lighting will appear the exact same as our halogen lighting. Now LEDs have a warm, amber-like appearance that we’ve all come to love.
When it comes to residential outdoor lighting, LED lights are easily the most energy efficient and are capable of cutting down lighting energy costs by nearly 80%. They use a lower wattage system than traditional halogens, saving energy, and they appear the same. It’s a win-win! Another significant feature of LED lighting is their lifespan. LED bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours. This is extremely long-lived and will save you money again by not having to replace bulbs nearly as often.
When LED lighting was first made available, the outdoor lighting system had to be installed specifically for LED fixtures. Now, as LED technology has made amazing leaps, an existing halogen outdoor lighting system can be retrofitted easily to LED with new, longer lasting, and energy saving bulbs.
