Why Use Low Voltage Outdoor Lighting?
Low voltage (12 volt) systems are popular for outdoor lighting for many good reasons. Low voltage landscape lighting systems are perfect for creative highlighting of shrubbery, gardens, artwork and other landscape features. Add light to paths, walkways, stairs, patios or decks to enhance your landscape ideas and increase enjoyment of your home throughout the day. Low voltage outdoor lighting is about 89% cheaper per fixture you install because it does not require an electrician and permits.
When looking at landscaping ideas, nothing enhances your garden or yard at night better than exterior lighting. Landscape lighting can add beauty to your home during the evening hours and provide safety by keeping your yard or home well lit at night. It also helps to illuminate those areas where you must walk when coming home after dark. Low-voltage landscape lights, or 12-volt, landscape lighting has become a popular alternative to the 120-volt landscape lighting in recent years and should be considered when planning outdoor landscape lighting.
Here are some reasons why:
12 volt lighting is significantly less expensive to operate than the 120-volt systems once it is installed.
Low voltage lighting cables need only be hidden whereas 120 volt systems must be buried 18 inches into the ground so it is much more difficult to install or move.
The low voltage system can be plugged into outdoor receptacles, no need for an electrician as in 120 volt systems.
Outdoor lights on low voltage systems allow for smaller landscape lighting fixtures so they are less obtrusive.
The low voltage lights operate safely when exposed to moisture, they do not present a shock or electrocution hazard.
Retract A Light has been tested and works in all climates and add the last photo of the light in snow.
Nightscaping has become a popular term for outdoor lighting designs. With a Retract-A-Light system, the outdoor lighting hides away during the day providing a perfect solution to beautiful accent lighting at night for your lawn, garden, deck path or stairway. This system is not susceptible to damage from breaking and damage as other systems can be because it retracts into the ground. And because it retracts, it cannot be tripped over or mowed down. Plus it doesn't detract from the landscaping during the day!
