Now that you’re booting up your old outdoor lighting system, you may notice a difference in your hydro bills. Though you no longer have to worry about heating your home, you will have to use additional hydro for your air conditioner and your outdated lighting system too.
If you want to save on hydro bills, and also contribute to saving the environment, it’s time to invest in LED lights with Nite Time Décor Oakville! If you’re not convinced about the effectiveness and efficiency of LEDs, then give us a few minutes of your time to show you about the wonders of LED Oakville landscape lighting.
The initial upfront costs of new LED fixtures may be slightly off-putting to some homeowners. However, the costs of LED Oakville landscape lighting pay off in the long run as your electricity bills will be dramatically reduced. A single halogen lamp cost roughly $66.70 to run annually. Conventional lamps are $98.55 per fixture, per year. Meanwhile, LEDs will run for only $29.57 per year per fixture, which works out to significant savings.
Furthermore, though LED bulbs are a bit more expensive to buy, they also last considerably longer than traditional bulbs. You won’t need to purchase new bulbs as regularly as if you use conventional or halogen bulbs in your outdoor lighting system.
LED fixtures use as little as half or even a tenth of the energy used by fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. For a single hour of running time, incandescent bulbs use up 60 watts, and in a year of use they eat up as much as 3285 KWh. Fluorescent bulbs use 13-15 watts per hour, and approximately 767 KWh/year.
As mentioned, LED bulbs have greater longevity than conventional bulbs. In fact, LEDs have an estimated 50,000-hour lifespan, which is roughly 50 times the lifespan of incandescent bulbs, and considerably longer than the 8,000-hour life of fluorescent bulbs. Your Nite Time Décor Oakville fixtures will need considerably less maintenance when your bulbs last as long as LEDs!
Not only do LEDs have an incredible lifespan in comparison with their more traditional counterparts, they are also able to withstand more damage. LED Oakville landscape lighting also stands up better against shocks, vibrations, and hard contact. These bulbs are compact, and sturdy. And because these bulbs are rated for 50,000 hours, manufacturers need to make them durable enough to survive both usage and the elements. They’re durable in adverse weather, and can handle more extreme external climate conditions.
Create great ambience
Nite Time Décor Oakville recommends LEDs as a great way to create ambience in your yard. Though many believe LEDs to be very bright and blue-white in colour, LEDs actually come in gentle tones to offer a soft but brilliant illumination for your property.
