Everything You Need to Know About Outdoor LED Lighting

Some homeowners have old, noisy, and inefficient outdoor lighting, while others don’t even have any lighting. Outdoor lighting is as crucial for your home improvement as any interior design element. Nowadays, lighting service providers use LED lights because of their countless applications, longevity, and energy efficiency.

At Lights Over DMV Landscape Lighting, we offer customized landscape lighting solutions in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Our lighting professionals have explained everything you need to know about outdoor LED lighting.

Energy Efficiency

Traditional lighting is not only outdated but inefficient at its best. It consumes significant energy that results in high electricity bills. With LED lighting, you use only 15% of the electricity that ordinary bulbs use. The power you need to run a traditional 100W flood lamp can light 5–6 LED lamps without increasing your monthly electricity bill.

Our low-watt outdoor and landscape accent lights run on very little electricity and offer an energy-efficient solution to homeowners.

Better Lifespan

When you add LED lights to your outdoors, you don’t have to worry about replacing them anytime soon. Typically, LED lights can last for 5–8 years (even if you use them 10 hours each day), whereas ordinary bulbs need a replacement within the first year.

We use high-quality LED lights that have up to 100,000 hours of lifespan, making outdoor lighting a long-term investment for you.

Prevent Burglaries

Each year, over 1 million burglaries occur in the country, most of which happen at night. The intruders and thieves make the most of dark pathways and backyards. Research also shows that streetlights led to a 35% reduction in nighttime crimes.

With outdoor LED lighting, you’ll have a well-lit front and backyard, and intruders will think twice before entering. LED lights have higher luminosity than ordinary bulbs. They distribute light almost 360° around the lamp, whereas regular bulbs leave dark shadows around and can be ineffective in preventing crimes.

Doesn’t Attract Bugs and Insects

When installing landscape lighting, most homeowners worry about attracting bugs and insects. Regular lights emit UV rays and heat, attracting bugs. However, LED lighting produces minimal heat and no UV rays, hence, no bugs. These lights produce an orange and yellow tint which is invisible to insects and bugs.

Improved Curb Appeal

People add many landscape features, like trees, patios, decks, etc., to their home’s exterior to enhance its curb appeal. However, these features are only visible in daylight and are almost unnoticeable at night. Outdoor lighting can enhance your landscaping at night and accentuate the intricate, beautiful details. This also helps you sell your home at a good price in the future because the homebuyers will know how well-maintained you’ve kept it.

By hiring us, you not only enjoy stunning landscape lighting, but we also offer other solutions like financing, free at-home consultation, etc. If you feel your desired outdoor lighting is out of your budget, we can create a viable solution for you.
