MANY SAY, “RESOLUTIONS ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN,” BUT WE DISAGREE! A NEW, BETTER BEGINNING AT THE NEW YEAR CAN NEVER BE A BAD THING. IF THIS IS YOUR “GOING GREEN” YEAR, OUTDOOR LIGHTING PERSPECTIVES OF CHARLOTTE CAN HELP WITH LOW-EMISSION, ENERGY-EFFICIENT LED OUTDOOR LIGHTING.
In years past, a lot of clients have had valid concerns about LED decorative outdoor lighting. As with any new technology or product, fear of the unknown played a part. Will these lights last? Are they made of materials that might be harmful? Other concerns, such as the cool blue lighting color, were also raised. In the beginning, even we admit, that LED was not our top recommendation for outdoor lighting. Over the last few years, however, LED technology has become a front-runner for lighting everywhere – in cars, inside our homes and businesses, and now, outside our homes too! Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is ready to design and install the perfect LED outdoor lighting system for your home, and your new greener lifestyle.
Green Benefits of LED Lighting
Did you know that LED exterior lighting is considered a sustainable product? It’s true! LED bulb life can be greater than 50,000 hours of use. This is great for a couple of reasons. First, you won’t be replacing bulbs often, which will mean less cost to replace, and less time replacing them. Additionally, long bulb life means lower landfill product.
Cost benefits? Yes, there’s that too! LED bulbs will cost 70%-80% less to operate over their halogen counterparts. Less energy to burn, means less of a carbon footprint for your outdoor lighting system. If you are looking for environmentally conscious lighting, LED is for you. The environment will thank you!
LED bulbs are also sturdier than traditional halogen bulbs and are UV-free to boot. The benefits of UV-free outdoor lighting are in that it will not attract insects like traditional halogen bulbs. Living in the Carolinas, we can all agree this is a fantastic benefit!
LED Lighting Upgrade or Retrofit?
If you have an existing low-voltage quartz halogen lighting system, we have great news! You could be the perfect candidate for an all-new LED retrofit. When clients call on us to replace their existing lighting system, many times, this doesn’t entail ripping out the entire system, and fully replacing it. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can save wiring and other important components of your old lighting system and retrofit it with all-new LED. If you are ready to replace your outdoor lighting, call on us for potential upfront cost savings with retrofitting, rather than replacing, and long-term cost savings offered by LED. You can’t go wrong!
