It’s no secret that LED outdoor lighting is far more energy efficient than more traditional forms of outdoor lighting like halogen. It’s slightly less well-known that LED outdoor lighting can look just as good as halogen. In fact, with the newest technology, Raleigh LED outdoor lighting can even be mixed into a halogen system without anyone being able to tell the difference in the light. This has been very welcomed news to homeowners. Now, you can have beautiful outdoor light while saving on your energy bill every month. You also conserve energy, which is good for the environment and reduces your carbon footprint.
If you’ve already called Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Raleigh about LED outdoor lighting, you may have already seen your demonstration and received your quote. Then low and behold, you walk into your local, discount hardware store, see LEDs, and realize these are a lot cheaper than those used in your quote. No, they’re not the CREE brand used by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Raleigh, but the extra cost is only for the brand name, right? Not in this case. CREE is certainly a special brand, and yes, there are many bargain LEDs available on the market. However, when you pay for CREE LEDs, you’re not just paying for a brand. You’re paying for technology.
CREE has been one of the leading researchers and developers of LED technology since it emerged. They developed the technology that took LED light from the old, bluish look that few wanted illuminating their properties to clear, warm lighting that is beautiful and allows true colors to shine. When you pay for these LEDs you aren’t just paying for a name, you’re paying the research that made the light possible. Take a look at the bargain brand. Do you see a CRI rating on the packaging? The CRI rating tells you the color temperature of the light. Chances are, the bargain LEDs will not have this, so you won’t know how the light will look until your purchase the LED, install it, and turn it on. The light it emits would probably stand out amongst a system of halogen bulbs. Additionally with CREE, you are paying for components that are subjected to rigorous quality and energy efficiency testing. These LEDs last longer and consume less energy than others on the market.
So what’s the difference? With the CREE LEDs used by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Raleigh, you are assured beautiful light that is efficient and stands the test of time. We are outdoor lighting specialists that take pride in our work since it speaks for us. We want each system we install to be striking and breath taking and use the very best LEDs because they make this possible.
