Besides an attractive look, landscape lighting has other purposes. It can also improve functionality and safety. However, electric bills can increase if you don’t select power-saving options for your landscape lights. Opting for energy-efficient landscape lighting is critical to ensure that you save on energy bills and keep your property secure. Keep reading to discover some tips on saving power.

Select Low-Voltage Lighting

If you plan to install landscape lighting, it’s vital to consider the lighting type you use. Low-voltage lighting is ideal because it helps conserve energy and minimizes energy bills. It’s also important to remember that installing overly bright lights can distract your guests and neighbors. At Aqua-Bright, we recommend that you utilize lights that come with a power output of only five watts to ensure that your landscape lighting is adequate. Overall, this approach will provide sufficient illumination for your outdoor space while minimizing energy consumption.

Install Energy-Efficient Bulbs

Thanks to advanced technologies, homeowners and business owners can have LED lighting that is substantially more energy-efficient than previous options, such as halogen lighting and compact fluorescent bulbs. The LED bulbs emit a broader light, covering larger areas while conserving energy. Therefore, LED lights are great for eco-friendly and cost-effective lighting solutions.

Consider the Height of Your Fixtures

When you plan to install exterior landscaping lights, it’s critical to consider their height because it can significantly impact energy efficiency. We recommend using lights of different sizes to accomplish an evenly distributed and well-lit yard. Doing so may develop a warm and welcoming ambiance while ensuring your property is secure and well-lit at night.

Use Timers

Only use your landscape lighting when necessary. This will allow you to handle the usage of your lights and minimize energy consumption. A great way to accomplish this is by adding timers to some or all of your landscape lights. Plus, you may use a daylight sensor that automatically turns on or off your lights depending on the sun’s rise and set.
