Your house is your first point of pride, whether you live in a small, city row home or a massive, eye-catching estate.

Save Money Update Your Landscape Lighting
Not only does landscape lighting draw attention to your home’s most notable features by illuminating them during an otherwise dark night, but it also saves you money by substantially reducing energy costs. Here’s a look at the numerous ways switching your outdoor lighting to LED will save you money.
LED Lights Last Longer
Simply put, LED lights last longer than standard bulbs – so much so, in fact, that they typically last between 50,000 and 100,000 hours, whereas regular halogen bulbs generally last between 2,500 and 4,000 hours. While you may pay more for LED lights at the outset, the return on your investment is substantial, and you won’t have to buy new lights for a long time, saving you not only money, but time spent switching them out.
LED Lights Are More Rugged and Durable
LED landscape lighting is designed to last the long haul, and when you’re dealing with outdoor lighting, that’s priority number one. Outdoor lighting is subject to sufficiently more wear and tear than indoor lighting, and as such, should be superior in strength. LED lights are rugged and ready to stand up to all kinds of outdoor hazards, whereas halogen lights are inherently fragile and prone to break easily, leaving you financially responsible for replacing them.
While the amount you can save by switching to LED outdoor lighting depends on the number of lights in your system and how long they stay on each day, expect a roughly 75 percent reduction in energy consumption, which you’ll undoubtedly appreciate when your electric bill comes.
