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.
