Why You Should Choose LED Lights

No one likes pulling into the driveway and seeing a dark house. It isn’t welcoming or homey, and who knows what could be lurking in shadows. When you’re away for days at a time, if your house is dark, it is at risk. Gain peace of mind while you’re away and a welcoming home when you return with a customized lighting system.

Brighten up your home and keep it safe with a custom LED lighting system from Professional Irrigation Systems.


 

Why LED Lights Are the Best Choice

1. Energy efficiency

You might be worried about over-the-top energy costs when installing a new lighting system, but an LED-based lighting system will provide energy efficiency at a lower energy cost than other lighting systems. LED lights use about 50% less electricity than incandescent, fluorescent, and halogen lights.

Your outdoor lights will be on for extended periods, so the energy cost savings from LED lights will be kind to your wallet.


 2. Extended life

LEDs don’t “burn out” or fail – instead, they dim over time. If you had incandescent lights, you’d have to replace the bulbs more frequently or risk a bulb outage when you need the lights on most.

Quality LED lights have an expected lifespan of 30,000-50,000 hours depending on the quality of the light. Comparatively, incandescent bulbs only last about 1,000 hours and compact fluorescent lights last 8,000 to 10,000 hours.

The extended light of LEDs reduces labor costs of replacing bulbs in commercial locations and makes it easier on homeowners too.


 3. Work in cold temperatures

Unlike fluorescent lamps that require high voltage at lower temperatures, LED performances increases as temperatures drop. That makes LEDs a perfect fit for outdoor lighting systems in cold areas.

When the sun goes down earlier in the winter, you rely on your outdoor lights even more, and you don’t want to worry about them in a cold snap.


 4. Instant On

Most fluorescent lamps don’t provide full brightness the instant they’re turned on, and they might need a few minutes to reach maximum light. LEDs come on at 100% brightness almost instantly. This is especially helpful for motion sensor lights and following a power outage.
