Converting your existing outdoor lighting system to LED is many times a viable option which also means you can enjoy the many benefits of LED without having to start anew. If your existing system is 12 years old or newer, chances are your system could be a candidate for LED conversion!

After learning this news you are probably asking where do I start? First, your system will have to be inspected to see if LED conversion is possible. Most traditional outdoor lighting systems such as halogen and incandescent can easily be converted to LED. One of our outdoor lighting professionals can inspect your existing system and determine if your system qualifies. Once your existing system is deemed fit to undergo the conversion, you can start enjoying the many benefits of LED outdoor lighting.

Benefits of LED outdoor lighting

  • LED outdoor lighting systems consume nearly 90% less energy than traditional outdoor lighting systems. These savings will make you smile each time you pay your electrical bill.
  • LED outdoor lighting systems have extended longevity with longer bulb life that needs replacement less often. For example a typical halogen bulb will burn for approximately 2,000 to 4,000 hours, whereas an LED will last a whopping 50,000+ operating hours — Wow.
  • LED is a “greener” technology because it leaves less of a carbon footprint on the environment.  LED’s are responsible for less greenhouse gases by reduced carbon dioxide emissions. LED’s also contain no harmful chemical such as mercury that makes handling and disposal dangerous.
  • LED Outdoor Light bulbs

    LED bulbs last much longer and are more energy-efficient

    LED’s are UV free which means no ultraviolet rays which are prone to attract insects.This means using LED in your landscape, deck and patio lighting installation is a plus because it will not attract insects that can invade your outdoor living enjoyment.

  • LED’s are more durable and resilient than ordinary lighting systems — shock resistant, and also react better to changes in temperature, weather conditions and repeated cycling. LED’s will better withstand the demands needed by a bulb placed in outdoor situations.
