Adding low voltage lighting to your outdoor space will not only create a relaxing atmosphere, but also boasts a wealth of other benefits:

  • Nighttime lighting extends the usability of your patio, pool, and other gathering places.
  • Any hazardous areas of your yard will be lit up, saving you and your guests from any accidents and your landscaping from any damage.
  • Lighting up your yard will add additional safety by deterring potential trespassers or intruders from entering your property at night.
  • Impressive lighting can be used to celebrate holidays throughout the year, whether you are entertaining or just want a tranquil space to appreciate the season.
  • They create an impressive look and a safer home, adding to the value of your property and neighborhood.
  • Low voltage lights are perfect for showcasing structural pieces and décor, such as a stunning front entrance or a pathway to the deck.

Why choose low voltage?

Low voltage lighting gives off a mellow illumination while also being a safer option than higher voltage fixtures. They won't cause an electric shock from a cut or disconnected wire, and are flexible enough to accommodate changes to your landscape. Installation is also simpler and cheaper, and you'll be saving money on your electric bill going forward with reduced energy usage.

When it comes to choosing the type of low voltage bulbs, LED lights are highly recommended for their efficient energy costs. They last much longer than incandescent bulbs, meaning a decrease in maintenance or replacements. They also offer more watts of light than they use in electricity, providing another way to help decrease your electric bill.

Low voltage lighting is the perfect way to enhance your outdoor space this summer. Contact Green Impressions for a free consultation.
