ADVANTAGES OF LED LIGHTING

ADVANTAGES OF LED LIGHTING

LED based landscape lights provide a number of distinct efficiency and practical advantages. Because of these advantages, LED optimization is the future of the industry.

Energy Efficiency

Halogen based lights can take anywhere between 10 and 50 watts of power each, and sometimes more. LED fixtures require roughly 80% less voltage, which means lower energy costs, longer lamp life, and better environmental citizenship for the end user.

Heat Reduction

As their watt consumption is significantly higher, traditional fixtures become very hot, so much so they cannot be touched after running for only a few minutes. LEDs create heat as well, but far less than traditional lighting. This results in a longer lamp and fixture life.

Fixture Life Length

Depending on the application LEDs can last 50,000 hours or more. At the end of their life they don’t just burn out like a traditional lights. LEDs slowly dim over time and at very low levels, so even after 50,000 hours of use in most situations LEDs will continue to illuminate sufficiently.

  • Showcase Your Building

Visitors who are seeing your business for the very first time may search the Internet and see what your building looks like before coming to your store in person. However, they won’t be able to see it in the dark. With the proper property illumination, guests will immediately know that they are in the right location when they pull into the parking lot. Whether you’ve got an apartment community, retail store, funeral home, or restaurant, it’s essential to showcase your property’s best features, so visitors can see even at night.

 

  • Protect Your Customers and Staff

While it may be virtually impossible to keep criminal elements away from your business, you want to make sure that your workers and clients have a safe entry to your premises. With proper exterior lighting, you can keep criminals away because they prefer dimly lit places. Additionally, you can make sure that your team members and customers can easily find their way through your parking lot while it’s dark outside.

Illuminate and Display Your Home

Adding outdoor lighting, you can enjoy your home grounds well into the night, any time of the year.

Lighting can be used to emphasize a single feature or to showcase many at the same time and can be focused high up into the trees or close to the ground.

Safety for Everyone

Installing lighting focused on stairs, driveways, and paths are both attractive and practical. If these areas are cluttered or overgrown, sufficient lighting can reduce the risk of injury from slips and falls.

Furthermore, it’s an effective security measure since a well-lit landscape eliminates hiding places for burglars and other predators.
