3 Benefits of Outdoor LED Lighting

The exterior of your home is something to be proud of. You've taken the time to plan out your landscaping and hardscapes, as well as make repairs to gutters and more. However, you can feel like your outdoors is still missing something. At The Southern Landscape Group, we help solve this problem for homeowners, and it usually includes our outdoor LED lighting. Landscape lighting has a significant impact on your home's curb appeal, but there are additional benefits to choosing LED lights.

3 Benefits of Outdoor LED Lighting

1. Energy Saving

If saving on your energy bills is important to you, installing outdoor LED lights is a great solution. LED lights are up to 80 percent more efficient than traditional halogen lights. Nearly 95 percent of the energy in the LED light bulb is actually used for lighting, while only 5 percent generates heat. This not only makes your energy usage more efficient, but it also prevents light bulbs from getting too hot.

2. Durability

Unlike traditional lightbulbs, LED bulbs are not encased in glass and do not contain any neon or mercury filament. This design means LED lights are more durable and can withstand all weather conditions. They can even withstand shocks, earth vibrations, and ground shifting. Because of this, many homeowners prefer to use LED lights outdoors because their durability also means they require less maintenance.

3. Fewer Pests

If you currently have non-LED landscape lighting, then you know that pests like mosquitos, moths, and other bugs are a big deal. Bugs are often attracted to the heat and UV light inside the halogen light bulbs. However, you won't get that when you switch to LED lights. Because LED lights don't give off much heat or UV light, you will notice a drastic shift in the number of bugs flying around your landscape at night.
