Benefits to Low Voltage Outdoor Lighting
You’ve spent time and money creating a beautiful landscape that is only visible during daylight hours. An outdoor lighting plan can highlight your landscape creating usable outdoor space long after the sun sets. Low voltage lighting offers many other benefits as well…
Energy Efficiency = Cost Savings
Low Voltage lighting can provide as much light as incandescent bulbs using only 20% of the energy. This means you can save money on your electric bill by consuming less energy while still providing adequate light. Low Voltage Lights, especially LEDs, last 50 times longer than other bulbs creating less waste and saving on bulb replacement.
Safety & Security
Installation of low voltage lighting is safer than other kinds of lighting and when installed outdoors, does not carry the risk of electrocution due to exposure to the elements (rain or snow). Lighting up the perimeter, entry points and shadow pockets in your yard provides an element of safety and security as well. Keeping the area surrounding your home well-lit serves as a deterrent to intruders and can prevent trips and falls which are among the most common causes of home injuries.
A well designed lighting plan can enhance the details of your property’s landscape and architecture and add value to your home. Lighting designs can be configured to highlight a focal point, up-light features and mimic moonlight. Timers and colored lenses can be added to orchestrate and provide options to bring your light display to life.
