Living in Spartanburg is fantastic for a million and one reasons. But one of the main attractions of the Upstate area is our gorgeous climate. With moderate winters interspersed with warm days and comfortable evenings, we get to enjoy the outdoors comfortably for a majority of the year. But with darkness falling around five o’clock each night, utilizing your outdoor space on those warm fall and winter nights can be challenging. But, if you add LED outdoor lighting to your deck, patio, and landscape, you can simply flip a switch and stay outdoors without a large impact on your electric bill.
Turn the Lights Off!
While our winters are more moderate than much of the country, we still take on higher energy costs in our homes during the winter months. Between heating our homes, having the lights on longer each day, and potentially accruing the cost of our Christmas display, our electric and gas bills tend to go up this time of year. While you may have grown up in a home where lights were only on when in use, and used sparingly, with LED outdoor lighting, you don’t have to alter your lifestyle to combat a high energy cost. Our LED outdoor lighting uses 80% less energy than halogen.
Go Ahead, Leave the Lights On.
That is 80% less than an already low-voltage light! Consider this; your average incandescent light is 60 Watts. Your average Halogen light for outdoor use is 35 Watts. The average LED landscape light that emits the same light as the 35 Watt Halogen is only 7 Watts! If the average system is 10 or 12 lights, that is only 70-84 Watts used on the full system that illuminates your entire property!
Don’t let energy costs prohibit you from enjoying evenings under the stars, by the fire, or on the patio this fall and winter. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Greenville today to add LED outdoor lighting to your property.
