When choosing to have an outdoor lighting design and installation at your Kirkland, Redmond or Seattle area home, you may be concerned not only with the cost of the lights but the ecological and financial cost of running those lights each and every night. That is why we only install LED outdoor lighting systems.
The technology for outdoor lighting has caught up with the demand for high-quality, energy-efficient lighting that can withstand the elements and still provide the right amount of illumination. The flexibility that has recently come to market for LED fixtures has really made an impact in outdoor lighting applications.
Saving electricity means saving energy and lowering the environmental impact of creating that energy. With Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Puget Sound’s LED outdoor lighting fixtures, you’ll use as much as 80% less energy while still getting the color and brightness you are seeking. Not only that, with no toxic materials used you’re reducing your carbon footprint even further.
A four Watt LED can produce the light equivalent to a 20 Watt halogen. This can amount to as much as an 80% savings on your electricity costs. With LED, the life expectancy of your lamp is 30,000-50,000+ hours as compared to the 2000-5000 hours you get with a Halogen or the 750-2,000 hours you get with an incandescent. By not having to replace those bulbs you are saving even more.
Previous LED technology meant color problems with yellowish or bluish hues that were unattractive. With advancements in LED technology not only is the color warm, but it also is instantly on with no delays and allows for better control of the light’s direction.
While the market is gaining momentum and there are plenty of outdoor LED lights on the market, at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Puget Sound we offer technologically advanced LEDs. Our top of the line innovative LEDs solve the performance problems of some older model outdoor LED lights that are still being offered by other retailers and outdoor lighting companies.
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Puget Sound uses fixtures that have a patent-pending technology that separates the light source from the electronics of the fixture. This cutting-edge technology allows the already long life of your LED bulb to be extended even more by reducing the amount of heat the LED light source is subjected to.
Most LED outdoor lighting fixtures have to be discarded once the LED “burns out” or surpasses its useful life. While their life is long, replacing the fixture is a significant hassle and expense. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Puget Sound uses innovative LED outdoor lighting fixtures that can be switched out. Not only can you replace bulbs that are no longer performing, but you can swap out LED lamps simply because you decide you want a narrower or broader beam.
While we love to install new systems, we can come in and retrofit your already existing outdoor lighting system with LED. With the added benefit of lower running cost, lower ecological cost, lower maintenance costs, and longer warranties, switching to LED outdoor lighting is a win-win for every business and homeowner.
