Never say never. That’s the lesson in the event you are one of the homeowners who have been wondering if you can get a complete overhaul of your outdoor lighting system.
Yes. Of course you can get a complete overhaul of your outdoor lighting system. And the finest outdoor lighting upgrade service available is with the certified professionals at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives (OLP).
In fact, if your outdoor lighting system was installed a few years ago with halogen outdoor lights with OLP or another vendor, it would be in your best interest to have us replace them with LED.
THE EVOLUTION OF OUTDOOR LIGHTING FROM INCANDESCENT TO HALOGEN TO LED
When we created our outdoor lighting business back in 1995 – and in doing so this lighting category – our goal was to create an outdoor lighting system that would operate at its highest possible level of efficiency while using the least amount of energy feasible.
To achieve this, we focused on using a low voltage transformer to operate the system. Likewise, to maintain that operational philosophy of efficiency, we decided not to include conventional incandescent bulbs in our system, but rather use halogen bulbs.
Halogen bulbs were a very good choice for outdoor lighting at that time. They were more energy-efficient than incandescent lights; and they were brighter. And with their greater durability, the bulbs did not need to be changed as often as incandescent bulbs.
As our business grew and evolved over time, our passion for achieving the best possible illumination effects grew accordingly.
This quest led us to investigate the use of Light-Emitting Diodes (LED light bulbs) as part of our outdoor lighting protocol.
At first, we were not satisfied with the quality of their light projection. The LED beams of light back then often had a ting of a blue cast or their broadcast of light shined extremely bright.
But working with our technologists, we eventually resolved our issues with the LED light quality and perfected the ideal combination of light and effect.
Today, LED is the preferred choice for outdoor lighting sources.
In fact, since 2008, LED lights have virtually replaced all other sources of light, including incandescent, fluorescent and halogen.
Today, LED technology is used extensively for commercial, industrial, and residential applications. LED performance capabilities are superior across the board with increases in lifespan, increases in brightness, increases in performance and increases in energy efficiency.
SAVE EVEN MORE ENERGY BY UPGRADING FROM HALOGEN OUTDOOR LIGHTING TO LED OUTDOOR LIGHTING
An outdoor lighting redesign and an outdoor lighting LED retrofit are very possible with us. In fact, it is highly recommended.
Staying current with the latest LED technologies will surely prove to be in your best long-term interest in keeping your outdoor lighting performance at its highest efficiency possible.
Your energy consumption and outdoor lighting system efficiency improvement by upgrading to LED lights is significant.
Retrofitting and upgrading your current halogen lighting with an energy efficient LED solution can save you up to 80% in your annual lighting energy costs.
Your system redesign will drastically reduce maintenance costs for both labor and replacement parts as our LED fixtures and lamps have from four to forty times the useful service life.
We improve overall performance by using our high quality proprietary products and utilizing high color rendering index (CRI) with the appropriate correlated color temperature (CCT) to deliver high quality light levels.
WHEN WILL I KNOW IT IS TIME TO UPGRADE MY OUTDOOR LIGHTING SYSTEM AND HAVE IT RETROFITTED TO LED?
Homeowners who purchase an existing home on the market may notice that the lumination effects on the system that came with their new home are weak. And some lights may not be working at all.
In these situations, an outdoor lighting upgrade is your best bet.
For homeowners who have had their halogen system installed years ago and have redesigned their landscape – or added a new hardscape space – they most likely will need a complete redesign of their existing outdoor lighting as well.
This is critical as the installation of new LED fixtures will better complement the new look of your landscape and garden areas, maximizing your return on investment of the new plant material, trees and shrubs you have recently added.
Another situation that came to our attention from a recent client was that they actually had too many fixtures because the company they used to design and install was not fluent in the language of professional outdoor lighting. In this case, the landscape lighting was broadcasting way too much light, so much so that the brightness levels were similar to that of an airport runway.
