Operating Characteristics
What is an LED light? An LED is a light emitting diode on a  semiconductor that generates light when current is applied to it, which is very different from incandescent and or halogen technology currently used in lighting. There are also different types of LED emitters that have different characteristics that affect their application in lighting.

Lifespan
Most of the products installed by 417 Outdoor Living are rated at 50,000 hour useful life span  and offer  years of trouble free lighting, easily saving money in replacement cost and Labor costs for the equivalent ten to fifteen halogen lamp changes.

 

Energy Savings
Although LED lights are more expensive to buy, in the long run, they are worth it. This is because they have a much longer life than halogen bulbs at anywhere from 30,000 to 50,000 hours. You can rest assured that your landscape lighting will burn bright for much longer than one year. Like halogen lights, the lighting ability of LED lights is very good. You will get great quality out of your landscape lighting when you use LEDs.
