Led low-voltage technology has been around for some time, and it offers the ability to create a energy-efficient lighting system, with a much smaller transformer. Luxor is one of the leading manufacturers of LED lighting for exterior purposes manufacturing both low-voltage transformers and lighting fixtures designed for both decks and patios.
Why Wattage Matters For Your Exterior Lights
In general low-voltage lighting LED gives off much more light with less wattage, then conventional exterior low-voltage lighting systems. Wattage is the amount of power required to operate a lighting fixture, the lower the wattage, the lower amount of power that is needed to illuminate the filament in the light bulb. The advantage of a LED light bulb is that it requires much less wattage than conventional exterior lighting systems.
Outdoor lighting Transformers
Utilizing standard low-voltage outdoor lighting for your patio, deck, or hard scape will require a transformer to convert the voltage from your homes high-voltage to a safer 12-volt system. Most Transformers can be preprogrammed to come on and off at designated times or be controlled manually. For most non-LED systems a 300 Watt transformer to be sufficient for most medium-size deck or patio projects. If you want to expand your lighting in the future to include landscaping lighting you may want to upgrade your system to a 600 Watt transformer. With a LED transformer a much lower wattage is needed to power many lights in your deck or patio project. Typically low-voltage LED transformers have a much slimmer, and compact design, and have the option to expand your lighting needs. Brands that manufacture state-of-the-art LED transformers include Kichler, AQL, and Justin.
