My name is Paul Anderson and I am the founder of Lighthouse Outdoor Living. We are a national company started in 1995 specializing in outdoor lighting, holiday lighting and electronic pet fencing. Today I wanted to inform you of the benefits of LED lighting over conventional high voltage or even regular low voltage halogen systems.
The home pictured above was done by my Columbus, Ohio location. This was lit with just 60 watts of power. Think of it that is just 1 lamp inside your home. With high voltage this would have been around 1000 watts and even low voltage halogen would have been 360 watts. There are many other advantages to LED: it is cool to the touch making it safer and the bulbs last 50,000 hours (roughly 15 years).
Like most new technology LED does cost a little bit more but with the energy savings and the fact that you do not have to change the bulbs most homeowners see a break even point of 2-3 years. Also we have been working on perfecting our LED's for 7 years. It is extremely important to get the right temperature or the light can be too white or even blue.
Lastly we have the ability to retrofit any low voltage system to LED. This can be done easily and turn your old system into a high tech energy efficient LED system. Visit our website for more info on LED or to get a FREE evening demonstration at www.lightsbylighthouse.com
