Outdoor Lighting Tips to Save Energy

Many people think that outdoor lighting has to be expensive because it has to look nice… not true. There are a variety of energy efficient lighting options to choose from. Low-voltage lighting, motion detector lighting and light emitting diodes (LEDs) are all great energy saving options. LEDs thrive outdoors because they are durable and perform well in cold weather. LEDs offer better light quality than regular bulbs (incandescent bulbs) and last up to 25 times as long.

Typically outdoor lights are left on for extended periods of time. By using compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) you can save a lot of energy and a lot of money. Most spiral CFLs can be used in enclosed fixtures because the fixtures protect them from the weather. CFLs are also available as flood lights. The flood lights are tested to withstand inclimate weather such as rain and snow, so these can be used in open or exposed fixtures.
