Imagine having an outdoor lighting system that lasts 50,000 hours or more. Hypothetically, if you ran your outdoor LED lighting system 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it would last approximately 5.7 years. Obviously your lighting system won’t be put through a regimen that strenuous. Not only is the extremely long life of an LED light bulb impressive, so are the savings on the energy costs. Wouldn’t it be nice to save money by not having to change bulbs and be able to reduce the amount of energy needed to illuminate your home’s facade or landscape?
Outdoor LED lighting sometimes received a less than favorable reputation in its infancy. It could have been described as extremely bright, not suitable for illuminating a home’s facade, or appear bluish in color. LED technology has made such great strides that the display of the LED illumination be configured specifically to your liking. In fact, LEDs are capable of displaying the same color range as the traditional halogen lighting system and last nearly ten times longer.
In regards to residential outdoor lighting, LEDs are the most energy-efficient and are capable of cutting down lighting energy costs by approximately 80%. This is achieved by using a lower wattage system than traditional halogens. With outdoor LED lighting you’re going to save money and illuminate your home and landscape with the same warm, soft glow as with halogen lighting.
Retrofitting from a halogen outdoor lighting system to LED bulbs on existing lighting systems is becoming increasingly popular. In the early days of outdoor LED lighting, outdoor lighting systems had to be installed specifically for LED fixtures. This is no longer the case. Now, as LED technology has made amazing leaps, an existing halogen outdoor lighting system can easily be retrofitted to LED with new, longer lasting, and energy-saving bulbs by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbia.
