After all, when making an investment to enhance the look of your property you should be able to enjoy it regardless if it’s daylight or not.

Outdoor Lighting : Halogen vs LED
Longer Life : Compared to Halogen lights, LED lights last 10x longer! One LED lamp lasts as long as 21.6 yrs. A typical Halogen lamp will not last more than 2.1 yrs. An LED lamp produces light for as many as 50,000 hours. It takes 12 Halogen lamps to produce the same amount of light. Each bulb producing a maximum of 4,000 hours of light.
Lower Energy Costs : On a standard 25 light job, with a Kilowatt rate of $0.12 per hour, estimated run time at 5 hours per night – LED out performs Halogen 10 to 1! LED lighting costs 1 cent per hour, up to $21.90 per year. Halogen lighting costs 10 cents per hour, nearly $200 a year.
Less Power Required : On a standard 25 light job, LED fixtures use a much smaller transformer compared to the same system using halogen. LED lighting requires only 1.25 AMPS with a 150-watt transformer. Halogen lighting requires 7.5 AMPS and a 900 watt transformer.
In addition to these benefits, there is also less wiring and hassle to deal with when installing LED lights. Outside of installation assistance we can also help ensure you select the proper lighting criteria for your landscape goals such as lumens, watts, color accuracy, and temperature.
