LED Outdoor Lighting: Save Green by Being Green

With LED outdoor lighting the value add to your home and life are tremendous. LED outdoor lighting can create a lovely outdoor living space that will enhance the beauty and relaxation in your everyday life. Nothing beats relaxing on the patio with a glass of wine after a long stressful day at work. With the days getting shorter, it soon will be dark before you get home, making outdoor lighting essential to using your outdoor living space. With increased value to your home as a whole, if you do decide to sell your home, there is one more feature you can list on your realtor ad.

LED Outdoor Lighting will Save You Money

Backyard LightingConsider this if you don’t currently have an outdoor lighting system at your home: You quite likely have at the very least a front porch light, a driveway or garage light and a back porch light. Chances are you leave at least one of those lights on all of the time for added security or safe navigation to and from your home. Your intentions are to have it on only at night, but in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it usually is left on.

Let’s think of a single standard light bulb of 60 Watts being left on 24/7. For the same wattage you can get a 10 light LED outdoor lighting system with Lighting Control Automation (LCA) that will achieve proper outdoor lighting across your landscape, pathways and porch for exactly the same wattage as that single bulb. But wait, there’s more; with the LCA in place your lights will never run during the day. You’ll actually be saving money on your electric bill, consuming less energy and replacing bulbs less — LED bulbs have a life span that is 10x longer than halogen.

Lower Carbon Footprint

Our LED light fixtures are made to last out of durable copper and brass. And with LED bulbs that last approximately 30,000-50,000 hours you’ll be putting less bulbs in landfills and your lack of demand will mean less bulbs are created. 8,760 hours in a year means you won’t be replacing your LED bulbs for 3.5 years if you run them 24/7. But with LCA you’ll be running them at least half as much so you’re looking at 7-11 years before you need to replace your outdoor LED bulbs.

With all of the things we do in Seattle to lower our environmental impact, from composting to recycling, we need to make sure we are doing our part in the use of energy. When it comes to the extremely long nights during the Seattle winter months, we have a huge opportunity to make a large impact by lowering the electricity use of our everyday items such as lighting, appliances and technology. With LED outdoor lighting you can easily make a difference without sacrificing a thing. It’s a rare treat to be able to enhance your lifestyle with the addition of a greener alternative, but with an outdoor lighting system by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Puget Sound, you’ll be doing just that.
