LED landscape lighting has become the preferred choice among homeowners and professionals for several reasons. For those of you who have a halogen lighting system, you might want to start thinking about the transition to LED bulbs because it will become unavoidable very soon. Considering LEDs are not only cost effective due to their longevity but also are brighter and perform better, this shouldn’t come as a surprise.
As the popularity of LED lights continue to rise, and they become more accessible, it may be time to make the switch from those outdated halogen lighting systems. It’s easy to keep the lighting you have now, but soon it will become worse for the environment.
“Why you should switch to LED lightbulbs right now, before the law requires it”, an article published in January 2018 by The Washington Post, states that the federal government passed a regulation that light bulbs must be at least three times more efficient in the next few years.
California has already decided to speed up this change.
Effective New Year's Day 2018, California retailers have been mandated to exhaust their supply of incandescents and subsequently sell bulbs that meet the new standard, which means LEDs and compact fluorescent light bulbs. The rest of the nation will follow in two years.
