Landscape lighting refers to various outdoor lighting fixtures and consists of versatile, weatherproof lights used for lighting entrances, pathways, trees, fences, driveways, and other outdoor features. The landscape lighting you choose impacts the look of your outdoor landscape and your monthly energy bills. Low-voltage landscape lighting consumes less power compared to other types of lighting. There are many benefits to using low-voltage lighting systems. Here are several advantages to using low-voltage outdoor lighting for your landscape design.
Security and Safety
One of the benefits of low-voltage outdoor lighting is that it emits even levels of illumination. Used strategically to light up walkways, outdoor pools or ponds, driveways, and entry areas, low-voltage lights improve safety by illuminating heavily trafficked areas so people do not slip or fall while walking in the dark. The low current used in this system does not harm its user, which minimizes cases of electric shocks. In addition, low-voltage outdoor lighting prevents security breaches by dissuading potential intruders from entering your property.
Creatively placing low-voltage outdoor lighting enhances the overall look of your property and highlights the landscape elements you are proud of. For example, focusing light directly on a plant or decorative feature can create unique looks, giving your property that extra boost. Landscape lighting allows you to enjoy your outdoor spaces and a beautiful landscape day and night.
Durable & Long-Lasting
Outdoor landscape lighting fixtures are designed for extended outdoor use. This means that the risks of electric shock, malfunctioning elements, and other potential accidents are drastically reduced. Additionally, outdoor lighting fixtures can withstand the weather, animals, and dirt they will endure throughout their lifetime. Investing in a low-voltage outdoor lighting system may be a bit more expensive upfront than a DIY installation, but homeowners can rest assured that their professionally installed systems are built to last.
Lower Utility Bills
Low-voltage lighting uses a transformer through which the electricity is transformed from 120 volts to 12 volts. Due to its lower voltage, this type of outdoor lighting is energy-efficient. Low-voltage landscape lighting consumes less electricity compared to high-voltage systems and saves you money in the long run.
Increases Property Value
By installing a professionally designed landscape lighting setup, you can increase your home’s value and curb appeal. Enhancing your home’s aesthetics and architectural or landscaping features makes your home look more appealing to potential buyers.
