One of the most remarkable things to happen in the lighting field is LED’s. First made back in the 1960s to replace control panel bulbs, LEDs have become the new replacement bulb for just about every need, including landscaping lighting. This has taken place because of three important reasons.
1. Power: LED bulbs only require a fraction of the power that standard lighting does. For example, to replace a 35 watt halogen bulb you only need to use an LED light that requires 6.5 watts.
2. Longevity: One of the biggest selling points of LED lights is the fact that they last so long. Incandescent bulbs only have a lifespan of about 700 hours. LED lights can last much longer with an estimated 11 and a half years of continuous burning for a single bulb.
3. Cost: Although they seem to cost more upfront than other landscape lighting options, if you factor in the lifespan of the bulb this may be the only light you will need to buy while you live in your home.
