In this blog, we will discuss 5 benefits of LED technology. First, LED technology helps to save money on electricity. Next, LED landscape lighting systems are more eco-friendly and have longer lasting bulbs. Finally, LED technology has decreased injuries and deaths associated with electrocution and they lower the probability of fire. An Illumination FL LED landscape lighting system is a great choice when compared to alternatives. Let’s look into this a little more closely.
Save Money on Electricity
LED technology helps you save money on electricity bills. When Illumination FL designs a landscape lighting plan for your home or business, we utilize the most advanced LED technology. Most of the LED lighting systems we design operate on a 12-volt system. This conversion that occurs from the primary power source and into the landscape lighting system will save you money on electricity. This is when compared to a traditional 120-volt halogen landscape lighting system. The savings can be significant, sometimes as much as 80%!
The LED technology that we deploy is significantly more eco-friendly. The electricity that you are not using with a less efficient halogen system stays on the powergrid. That means that the various power production methods, such as burning fossil fuels, are less necessary. This comparatively reduces your home or business’s carbon footprint. Using LED landscape lighting systems as opposed to a halogen landscape lighting system also reduces pollution in a correlated relationship with the reduction of power production.
Longer Lasting Bulbs
Light bulbs and other lighting hardware that use LED technology offer longer lasting bulbs. According to www.Bulbs.com, “LEDs are notable for being extremely long-lasting products. Many LEDs have a rated life of up to 50,000 hours. This is approximately 50 times longer than a typical incandescent, 20-25 times longer than a typical halogen, and 8-10 times longer than a typical CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lamps). Longer lasting bulbs means you save time and money.
LED technology decreases injuries and brings the death rate down to zero. In the United States there are typically around 400 deaths each year caused by high voltage electrocution. At 12-volts, our systems are extremely safe. Our professional installation crews are experts at handling the technology that converts your home’s 120-volt (high voltage power) to be distributed through the power grid we design for your system. This means that you can be confident and secure with your Illumination FL Landscape Lighting System.
Lower The Probability of Fire
Personal injury and death are significant concerns when dealing with electricity; however, LED systems also lower the probability of fire. This means that your home and other property are safer with a low-voltage Illumination FL landscape lighting system as compared to a traditional 120-volt system. This should also add to your sense of confidence when investing in a new landscape lighting system for your home or business.
These are just five reasons LED technology is the way to go when selecting a new landscape lighting system. There are many other reasons to make Illumination FL your landscape lighting company.
