Eco Friendly Landscape Lighting – Learning to Love LEDS

LED outdoor lighting has become a growing trend in Burlington and throughout southwestern Ontario. And it comes as no real surprise. With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why Burlington LED landscape lighting is a popular choice for eco-conscious homeowners.

Economic Benefits of LED Outdoor Lighting

Let’s talk money. Light-emitting diode lights use less energy, involve less waste, and therefore save you more money in the long run.

You may be thinking, “But LED outdoor lighting is so expensive!” And it’s true – the initial cost of installing Burlington LED landscape lighting can cost more. But look at the long-term savings. When you crunch the numbers (and, trust us, we have!), over time you save more money with an LED system than a traditional setup – a lot more. Our calculations have told us that for one year of LED outdoor lighting you will save almost $70 compared to conventional lighting, and almost $40 compared to halogen lamps.

LED lights also last longer, meaning that the purchasing costs occur less frequently than with conventional lighting. Throw Nite Time Décor’s lifetime maintenance into the mix, and you’ll enjoy a worry- and hassle-free LED outdoor lighting system for many years to come.

Ecological Benefits of Burlington LED Landscape Lighting

As mentioned, LEDS require less energy than conventional outdoor lighting. This makes them far more efficient, than conventional or halogen systems. In fact, they are estimated to be approximately 80% more efficient than conventional lighting.

LED bulbs do not contain mercury, meaning that the small amount of waste created is environmentally friendly; in fact, almost all of the fixture can be recycled. Also, because LED lights last longer than conventional lights, you will create less waste over the lifetime of your system.

Other Benefits of LED Outdoor Lighting

There are many benefits other than monetary and environmental.

Durability: LED lights are solid, and do not contain filaments. This means that in situations in which an incandescent light may have broken, an LED will remain intact.

Insect Control: LED amber lights don’t attract insects like regular incandescent lights do. With LEDS you can enjoy your patio without being eaten by bugs.

Heat: LEDS don’t allow a build up of heat, which enables them to stay cool and efficient, unlike those old conventional lights.

Burlington LED Landscape Lighting Aesthetics

Some people believe that LED lights are too bright – that they come across as “cold” or harsh looking. However, there are many different types of LED lights, and if done properly, your LED outdoor lightings system can be designed in a way that creates a warm and inviting ambiance.

What’s more, there are many ways to customize the light output of an LED lighting system. For example, you can control illumination with wattage and lumens to create bright specks of whimsical lighting for parties, or dim mood lighting for small, cozy nights on the patio. You should never have to sacrifice aesthetics for the eco and monetary benefits of an LED system. Contact Nite Time Décor today to learn more about LED compatible fixtures and lamps.
