Most of us have experienced the convenience and cost-savings that come with using LED (light-emitting diodes) bulbs in our homes. Now that same technology is overtaking outdoor lighting as well and bringing with it a whole host of benefits.
Gone are the days when LEDs could not deliver the warm light that halogens do. Now you can enjoy the economy and efficiency of LEDs without sacrificing the look and feel of the light you need.
You’ll Save Money
Even though LED bulbs and fixtures cost more up front, they save you money down the line because they use significantly less energy. An LED bulb uses roughly one watt of energy for every 10 watts that a halogen does. When you consider the number of outdoor fixtures you have and the price you’re paying each month to keep the lights on, the savings that LEDs bring really adds up. In fact, studies show you can reduce your utility costs by as much as 85% by making the switch to LEDs
You’ll Save Time
Halogen bulbs last 2,000 to 4,000 hours, while LEDs will go for 50,000 hours. Imagine the time and hassle—not to mention the money!—you’ll save by not having to replace your outdoor bulbs for another five to ten years.
You’ll Help the Environment
Because LED lights use less energy, they reduce the demand from power plants and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. They’re an easy way to do your part for the environment.
Make the Switch
As the world shifts to LED technology across the board, halogen bulbs are going to become harder and harder to find. The sooner you make the switch, the sooner you can begin to enjoy all the benefits LEDs deliver.
