12 Volt Lighting is pleased to announce the addition of LED landscape lighting to its selection of lighting options. The energy-efficient lighting option is often recommended by landscape professionals when either installing new landscape lighting or updating existing exterior lighting. Nearly all 12 volt outdoor lighting options are available in LED versions through the company's website. LED lights last longer and tend to be easier to install than traditional landscape lighting options. The low wattage used by LED lighting also makes it a popular choice as people are looking to save money without sacrificing on the beauty and security offered by exterior lighting. LED landscape lights use only about 20 percent of the electricity used by conventional halogen lights typically used for outdoor lighting.
The new LED exterior lighting fixtures available through the site include 12 volt deck lights and 12 volt path lighting. Deck lighting can be surface mounted, which does not require large holes and other detailed installation requirements, or flush mounted. The latter version requires more complex installation, but blends in with the surface for better aesthetics. LED path lighting selections include both natural and modern choices. Natural choices include products made from copper, a traditional material that tends to blend in with most exterior decors. Modern designs include side mount path lights, although those that are surface mounted can still blend in with existing exterior landscapes.
Choosing LED lighting for landscaping does not change the materials that can be used for exterior lighting products. LED landscape lights can be safely placed in fixtures made of copper, plastic, brass, stainless steel, aluminum, and fiberglass. Exposure to water is also not a concern. LED landscape lights can be used with all water features, including streams, ponds, fountains, and waterfalls. LED landscape lights also don't diminish from the illumination offered by traditional halogen lighting. LED lights used for landscaping purposes can produce the same amount of light produced by traditional lighting options. The only difference is how long LED lighting can last. Halogen landscape lighting usually lasts about 4,000 hours, while LED lighting can last up to 40,000 hours. This equals about 7-10 years of use from a single LED light.
