Choosing the Right Landscape Lighting Fixture
LED vs Halogen Landscape Lighting?
In the past making this choice took little effort. For a natural professional look halogen landscape lighting had no equal. LED, still lacking maturity, was of poor quality and provided inconsistent lighting effects at best. At worst the LED landscape lighting fixtures would break shortly after purchase.
From the consumer's vantage point, LED landscape lighting has made little if any progress. LED landscape lighting is typically only made available to consumers via big box retail. Solar landscape lighting is what people typically think of when it comes to consumer LED outdoor lighting. Lighting is too weak to be of any value and light quality (temperature) is extremely unnatural. However, this couldn't be further from the truth when it comes to professional grade LED landscape lighting fixtures. LED, thanks to big investments in green technology over the past few years, has certainly arrived and taken a seat at the top when it comes to many professional lighting applications.
Professional LED landscape lighting from VOLT® is indistinguishable from high quality halogen fixtures. In addition, any of VOLT®'s standard halogen fixtures can be easily converted over to LED with the exception of a few specialty lights. There is a professional LED bulb equivalent for almost every halogen outdoor bulb; making it easy to convert existing systems without undergoing a landscape lighting redesign.
A serious advantage LED has over halogen landscape lighting is "flexibility". With LED you not only reduce the power requirements needed to produce a particular lighting effect but you can be less vigilant when creating your landscape lighting layout plan. Voltage drop issues that traditionally plague halogen lighting designs are all but non existent with LED landscape lighting. Halogen landscape lighting fixtures on the same "run" must all be equal distance from the transformer for consistency sake; but with LED these fixtures could all be daisy chained. This can save both time and a ton of money.
