At Illuminations USA, we use only the best products available in the industry. For more than 18 years we have provided Orlando and the surrounding areas with the highest quality landscape lighting designs and installation services. LED, or light emitting diode, lighting is a new and changing frontier in the lighting world, which offers many benefits to owners. These lights offer new approaches and opportunities, however, and LED lighting systems must be installed and designed differently than conventional lighting. With our vast experience, Illuminations USA will make sure that each feature of your lighting design has the correct brightness levels, beam spread and correct positioning to enhance your home and garden to its fullest.
The color temperature of LED lighting is very important, too. When LED lights first came out, they were predominantly blue, but now there are a variety of color temperatures to choose from. The different color temperatures are used for different reasons. Some colors make greens look greener while others match halogen color, which is in the 2,800 to 3,000 Kelvin range of the light spectrum. This is what Illuminations USA uses for our architecture lighting. Our experienced team knows which color temperature, beam spread and wattages to use to get the best outcome for any lighting situation.
With the use of lenses and optics, we are able to make distinctive differences in the colors of your gardens. LED lights can provide a brighter light level and a more refined focus than lights sold at a cheaper price. The fixtures that Illuminations USA sells are guaranteed for 15 years and have the highest lumens per watt in the industry. On average, LEDs offer about an 80 percent energy savings versus conventional lighting, or roughly a two year return on your investment.
Q: Where are the best places to use LED lights around my property?
A: LED lighting systems are great because they can easily be installed nearly anywhere on your property. Whether you want LED lights to line a walkway, highlight a garden or light up a specific feature of your building, we can use them to get the job done. These lights are incredibly versatile, and with the right amount of planning, we can use them to enhance any aspect of your home, business or surrounding landscape.
Q: Are LED lights good for the environment?
A: The short answer is yes! That’s because not only do these lights contain no chemicals, but they are made from recyclable materials. If you are worried about making a negative impact on the environment, don’t be. Using LED lights benefits you and the environment that surrounds us all.
Q: How bright are LED lights?
A: Using LED lights around your property will give you more control over how bright certain areas are lit. For example, we can combine multiple LED lights to really highlight a specific area of your landscape. On the other hand, individual lights can be placed and dimmed any time you want an area to have some illumination without being too bright.
Q: Can I reuse my existing lighting fixtures?
A: Retrofit LED lamps are available, which fit into existing conventional lighting fixtures and have a five-year warranty. The only time Illuminations USA recommends using these conventional lighting fixtures, though, is when they are high-quality pieces that are worth saving. Although they are not the very best, they cost about 50 percent less than true LED fixtures, and offer an electrical savings of about 75 to 80 percent. For these fixtures, you must also change the bulbs every five years.
This information is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to LED lights and how they can be used to transform your property’s landscape. Illuminations USA is always invested in the future of lighting technology, and we firmly believe LED is here to stay. We will work with you to design an LED lighting system that works for your property, and we can get started in no time.
