Extend your energy efficiencies to your outdoor lighting this summer
It’s July, and summer heat has arrived in force. The sun is baking down, and our air conditioners are kicking into high gear. There is rarely a moment when I don’t hear mine running. As the temperature soars, so does your home’s energy consumption, and this becomes real each summer with the arrival of June’s electric bill. This is when we remind the kids to close the front door, don’t stand with the refrigerator open, and turn the lights off when you leave the room. You know, all those things our mothers used to tell us when we were young. Now, we pass them on. Of course, there are other ways we can conserve energy. Energy efficient bulbs for lamps and interior light are now more common than the traditional incandescent bulbs we grew up with. But did you know that energy efficiency can be extended to your outdoor lighting? With the newest, high quality LED lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City, it can.
So what do you know about LED lights? Do you know that they are 80% more energy-efficient than their halogen counterparts? That translates into significantly less energy consumption and a lower bill each month. Did you know how durable they are? LED bulbs can last up to 25 years if they are burning normal hours. Again, this characteristic translates into savings for you, as you will have fewer bulbs to replace. In the past, many homeowners have been reluctant to make the switch to LED outdoor lighting despite these many benefits. The reason driving this hesitation was the strange look that such lighting imposed on architecture and landscape. Old, low quality LED bulbs cast an overpowering, bluish color that appeared very unnatural. But with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives’ new, high quality LED bulbs, this unappealing color is gone, replaced by beautiful,

warm, natural light that is characteristic of halogen bulbs. With our new LED outdoor lighting, you can have the best of both worlds.
If you have an Outdoor Lighting Perspectives halogen system, switching to LED gets even better for you. A new LED system is a little more expensive than a halogen system, but we can retrofit this type of halogen system to accommodate LED bulbs. To upgrade, you would not have to purchase new fixtures. With just a little effort on our part, your OLP halogen system can become an energy-efficient, money-saving LED system.
So what are you waiting on? Whether you are planning to install a new outdoor lighting system or looking to maximize your energy efficiency, contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City about LED and retrofitting. We can help make your property turn heads and keep your summer electric bill low at the same time.
