What are some of the benefits of installing LED driveway lights?

 

Outdoor landscape lighting is a popular choice for home renovations and additions for the unique versatility, durability, and other features of LED lights. With a professional design team, the sky’s the limit! Whether you’re interested in pathway lighting, patio lighting, or landscape lighting, new lighting installation is a great option for your property! Another popular option is the installation of LED driveway lights. Perhaps you’ve considered putting some in before or have never really thought about it? Either way, we’re going to explain some of the benefits, so you’ll get a good idea of why this particular lighting has become so popular.

Great for the Environment

It’s no secret that the world is changing in how we look at our effects on the environment. Homeowners are now trying to find more ways to do their part by lowering their carbon footprint. LED driveway lights are much better for the environment than traditional bulbs because they use much less energy and generate much less waste.

LED Lights Rarely Need Replacement

To say that LED driveway lights last a long time would be an understatement. The average lifespan of an LED bulb is 50,000 hours. To put that in perspective, each bulb would last for more than 11 years if you ran them every day of the week for 12 hours per day. Not only will this save you in replacement costs, it means fewer bulbs end up in a landfill.

Improve Driveway Appearance

Like all LED lights, those installed in your driveway look and function well. They brighten everything up, accent your home’s existing architecture, and add to its curb appeal. It’s easy to see the difference once they’re installed. The installation and upkeep of driveway LED lights isn’t expensive, so you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Lower Electric Bills

As a homeowner, you’re probably searching for ways you can save money on utilities. Energy costs have risen quite a bit in recent years and that means that the amount of power being used is more important than ever. LED lights use a fraction of the wattage needed to power traditional bulbs, which means the portion of your monthly electric bill used by your new driveway lights will be lower.

Increased Safety and Security

Even bigger than lowering energy usage or saving money each month is the safety and security of your property. LED driveway lights provide a soft but bright illumination that will deter criminals from getting near your home and will also help you and others see better when you arrive home.

Resistant to Weather Damage

Florida definitely has its share of inclement weather. Every Floridian knows this and that’s why any landscaping item must be able to hold up against forces like rain and wind. LED lights definitely fit the bill. They are extremely durable and can withstand harsh rain, wind, heat, and even some flooding.

Light Colors Can Be Changed

If you ever want to change the colors of your bulbs either temporarily or permanently, it’s very easy to do. LED lights are available in multiple colors such as red, blue, green, amber, and many more. So, if you’re looking for a way to be festive, this is just one more way to do it.
