Your home is your castle and should be lit as such. LED is the popular choice for commercial properties, but it is also the best option for residential outdoor lighting. Professional Electric is here to help with the transition as you enter this new electrical frontier.
The acronym stands for light-emitting diode. The electrons inside the device allow for longer life, lower energy consumption, more full brightness and a faster response time. What began as a small area ideal for digital clocks grew into flashlights and now large displays bright enough to light a stadium.
The light-emitting diode allows for 40% less power usage than a fluorescent bulb and nearly 80% less than a traditional incandescent bulb. This means they last significantly longer, which in turn means less production and fewer materials.
As more and more consumers have transitioned to LED, the carbon footprint has decreased. In 2017 these bulbs helped lower the carbon dioxide emission by half a billion tons.
Thanks to how the option has evolved, these light-emitting diodes seem very industrial. This isn’t quite the haze we like to soften our homes. But as the option has continued to become an accepted alternative in our lives, technology has also grown. When choosing the best outdoor lighting for your residential property, LED has a vast selection that is sure to have the right fit for you and your family.
This option works well on residential properties for many reasons–the first being time saved. With a life of over 100,000 hours (translating to roughly 30-40 years when burning at 12 hours a day) LED has become a generational option and takes away the interfering chore of having to check bulbs, much less change them.
LED can also help if you are lighting an outdoor party area. Even if you prefer soft market lights for overhead, a LED spot can be implemented for practicality.
