When LED lighting first entered the outdoor lighting arena, it was touted as being the most effective and high-tech outdoor lighting technology on the market. While there were numerous benefits to LED lighting, we, and a lot our clients, did not feel it was an exact match for illuminating homes, landscapes and gardens.
The first thing that made LED lighting less than desirable for outdoor lighting was that the color wasn’t what people were expecting. It was extremely bright, way too bright in fact, resulting in a bluish color that skewed the color on the facade of the home. However, in recent years, LED landscape lighting technology has improved dramatically. Now, we at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis, can configure the color of LED lighting to fit your desired lighting level.
The affect LED lighting has on a home’s facade is usually our clients’ first concern. Now with the updated and refined LED technology, the lighting will appear the exact same as our halogen lighting. Now LEDs have a warm, amber-like appearance that we’ve all come to know and love.
Pertaining to residential outdoor lighting, LED lights are easily the most energy efficient and are capable of cutting down lighting energy costs by nearly 80%. They use a lower wattage system than traditional halogens, saving energy, and illuminate your home and landscape just the same. Another significant feature of LED lighting is their lifespan. These bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours plus. 50,000+ hours is extremely long-lived and will again save you money by not having to replace bulbs nearly as often.
When LED lighting was first made available, outdoor lighting systems had to be installed specifically for LED fixtures. 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. LED landscape lighting in Memphis TN has evolved to a state where you stand to save money in the long run by implementing this newly refined technology.
