If you’re thinking of installing landscape lighting or upgrading your current system, there are many things to consider, and there are pros and cons to each types of system.
High-voltage systems like LED high volt systems are bright and best for large areas that need security lighting. They require fewer fixtures, have fewer electrical parts to malfunction, and no transformer is required because they draw power from your home or business’ electrical supply. Typically, they last longer than other systems. Because of the high power involved, all wires and connections must be installed to code. In some cases, permits may be needed.
Low-voltage systems, such as LED outdoor landscape lighting, uses less electricity so it can save you money as well as offering energy savings. LEDs are considered an eco-friendly landscaping choice because they’re free of toxic elements like mercury. The main advantage of low voltage lighting is that its low voltage allows the filament of the light bulb to be smaller, and this allows users to put lighting applications in smaller places. Note that you do need a transformer.
Solar landscape lighting is unique. Thanks to advances in solar landscape lighting technologies, harnessing the sun’s rays to illuminate your landscape is a viable option that requires no wires, transformers or timers. The solar landscape lighting absorbs sunlight all day and at night the lights burn till all the energy is used. This is typically an inexpensive option that’s can be great for accent lighting.
We’ll help you determine which is best for your situation. In addition to landscape lighting for aesthetics, we recommend motion security flood lights on each corner of your home since burglars are less likely to target a well-lit home.
