Practical Advantages of LED Landscape Lighting

Benefits of Retrofitting Halogen Outdoor Lights to LED


The LED outdoor lighting experts at Natural Accents Outdoor Lighting Design & Installation in Liberty, MO, are working to assist property owners in the greater Kansas City metro area with transitioning halogen landscape or outdoor lighting during the halogen phase out. Our technicians are able to retrofit current halogen landscape lighting to efficient LED lights. To ensure you are confident in your early transition to LED, we have compiled a list of the top reasons LED is the future of outdoor lighting!


FX Luminaire LED Landscape Lights


6 Reasons LED Landscape Lighting is Better than Halogen Lights


1) LESS VOLTAGE USED

2) LOWER ENERGY COSTS

3) CONSISTENT LIGHTING LEVEL

4) LONGER LAMP LIFE

5) LESS HEAT

6) FIXTURE LIFE LENGTH


Now lets look at each of these reasons a bit closer:

1) LESS VOLTAGE USED: Depending on the halogen light, LEDs use around 80% less voltage. Most halogen lights need somewhere between 10 to 80 watts to run. LED fixtures use an average of 10 watts to run, but the FX Luminaire LED light fixtures that Natural Accents uses and recommends run on closer to 2 to 5 watts.

2) LOWER ENERGY COSTS: With less voltage used to run each LED light, property and home owners can enjoy the same number of LED lights as they had halogen, but at a lower electric use. This lower electric use translates into a lower monthly electrical bill. Who wouldn't like to see their monthly expenses go down?


3) CONSISTENT LIGHTING LEVEL: Halogen lights burn out. At the end of their life they no longer emit any light. LED lamps on the other hand dim as they near the end of their life span. This allows owners or property managers to still enjoy proper illumination, instead of a glaring void of light when a halogen lamp burned out.

4) LONGER LAMP LIFE: With professional installation and maintenance, LED lamps allow for thousands of hours of illumination before reaching the end of their life. This longer life means you won't have to replace lamps frequently; another savings opportunity!


5) LESS HEAT: Halogen lights quickly heat up and become a burn hazard to anyone that might accidently touch them. LED lights on the other hand, heat up, but not as hot. Also the FX Luminaire lighting fixtures that Natural Accents Outdoor Lighting recommends have temperature sensors designed to cool fixtures as they run.

6) FIXTURE LIFE LENGTH - Since FX LEDs cool fixtures down as they run, the lighting fixture lifespan itself is extended. Homeowners and property managers enjoy saving on the frequency of lighting fixture replacement since there is the a larger amount of time as well as fixture expense associated with a fixture replacement than just a lamp replacement.


Natural Accents Outdoor Lighting recommends and trusts FX Luminaire LED lights and lighting systems. For quality lighting systems that stand the test of Midwest summers and winters, we recommend FX Luminaire.
