If you are looking for new landscape lighting, then it is a good idea to choose LED lights. LED stands for light-emitting diode, and there are several benefits that you can reap from using LED landscape lighting.
LED lighting fixtures are often more expensive than other types of lighting. However, this investment will pay itself back quickly, sometimes in less than a year. LED lights do not use as much energy, so you will be able to save money on your electric bill. In fact, LED lights are 80 percent more energy-efficient than incandescent lighting.
You won’t have to do much to maintain your LED lights, so you will save money on hiring costly maintenance personnel to change your light bulbs on hard to reach fixtures multiple times a year. The lights can last up to 10 years. Furthermore, good quality LED landscape lights are extremely durable and will stand the test of time with harsh weather and other environmental abuse.
LED lamps are commonly made of astatically pleasing design with high quality material. In addition, the color of the light can be selected to enhance the curb
appeal of the property.
If you are looking for an eco-friendly lighting option, then you will definitely benefit by using LED lights. LED lights are not only energy-efficient, but they are also free of toxic elements such as mercury or gas. Additionally, LED lights do not require special recycling instructions, although some components are recyclable so it’s recommended that they are taken to a local electrical distributor that has an on-site recycling program.
Insects are naturally attracted to light. However, you will have less of a pest problem if you use LED lights. Insects are attracted to the UV spectrum in lighting, but since LED lights contain very little UV and also emit less heat, they are the least attractive light source to bugs. In particular, warmer color temperatures attract the least bugs.
LED lighting does not produce a lot of heat because most of them are low voltage. While they are less likely to cause a fire, the lesser heat generated means it the lamp is using power more efficiently. That brings your total power consumption down overall, to achieve the same amount of light as an incandescent bulb.
