Low voltage landscape lighting is often a do-it-yourself project and there are many options to suit your budget. Landscape lighting is also more affordable than ever coming in dozens of styles at a wide range of prices. Although it is tempting to purchase the cheaper incandescent lighting systems, in the long run the compact fluorescent options are better. Incandescent lamps will last for between 750 to 1000 hours. Halogens will last for 3500 to 5000 hours. But fluorescent lamps will last for as much as 10,000 hours. Because low voltage fluorescent light fittings have a lower power consumption than incandescent or halogens this makes them more desirable. Fluorescent light fittings also last longer than any other light fitting because they do not get as hot.
Line Voltage: Fixtures that operate at 120 volts are considered line voltage lamps. They do not require a transformer and can be directly connected to the electrical wiring.
While CFL bulbs contain small amounts of mercury, and need to be disposed off safely if broken, LEDs do not contain any such toxic materials and hence are perfectly safe for use.
Many salespeople in marketing LED for some reason may give customers to provide some fuzzy information, resulting in misleading, such as LED life of about 100,000 hours, where the 100,000 hours is the manufacturer expected LED life. As the light source of the light, the brightness of the lamp has a process of gradual decay and darkening (such as fluorescent lamps) , Energy-saving lamps), this process referred to as light failure. In the application-level LED, the light failure of more than 50%, the human eye can clearly feel the brightness of the change, then the product brightness we think is not suitable for lighting. Many manufacturers and engineers in the use of low-cost LED three months to six months or so, often found that the brightness of LED is not as bright as the installation of light, or even almost no, it is because the LED lamp failure did not take into account the reasons. In summary, we have to pay attention to the purchase of LED light decay of its speed, rather than the use of time.
