If you have not made a lighting purchase for the last few years, you will be pleased to learn that manufacturers of LED landscape lighting have made massive technological strides. Unlike the unreliable systems that were more commonplace in LEDs infancy, today’s LED landscape lighting systems rival those with traditional incandescent or halogen bulbs in terms of color and performance. LEDs have become the go-to choice for landscape lighting contractors and homeowners alike, and the team at Sposato Irrigation is pleased to offer LED landscape lighting design and installation services. Consider an LED landscape lighting system if you are looking for a high-performance outdoor lighting system that is efficient and reliable.
What Makes LED Landscape Lighting Different?
The key difference between LEDs and other types of lights are the bulbs. The term “LED” is short for “light-emitting diode.” Unlike other types of lightbulbs, LEDs create light when an electrical current passes through these diodes. In comparison, incandescent and halogen bulbs rely on an unbroken metal filament to carry the current, which heats the wire until it glows.
Excellent Performance and Color
Some lighting purists insist that incandescent bulbs create a unique color that simply cannot be replicated with LEDs. While that was once true, the technology available in LED landscape lighting has improved drastically over time. LEDs for home use can now create light in virtually any color. In addition to an expanded range of colors, LEDs have also become more reliable in terms of performance and longevity. Depending on the model, an LED bulb can have a lifespan that is ten times greater than that of a halogen bulb.
Energy, Maintenance, and Replacement Savings
Although LED landscape lighting systems may cost slightly more than comparable halogen systems, they can offer significant savings over the system’s lifespan. LEDs use a small fraction of the energy that halogen and incandescent bulbs do, which translates directly into monthly energy savings. Because of their relatively long lifespan and low upkeep requirements, LED landscape lighting systems can be much cheaper to maintain and will likely not need to be replaced as often. Whether you are considering outdoor lighting for security or visual appeal, an LED landscape lighting system is likely your best bet.
