Frequently Asked Questions:
LED bulbs are little devices that turn electric current into light energy, emitting heat in the process. In comparison to conventional light sources such as incandescent bulbs, it emits much less heat and energy. This, most probably is where LED benefits started to make an impact.
Why Should I Replace My Current Halogen Bulbs With LED Technology?
First and foremost LED has an extraordinarily long life. A typical LED bulb can last up to 10 years without being replaced which is an awesome value. Secondly, the LED bulbs consume a fraction of the power that a standard halogen bulb would need to output the same amount of light. As a result, this low power consumption coupled with the extremely long lasting life ends up saving you money and time.
What Color of Light Do LEDs Produce?
Contrary to popular belief, LEDs do not only produce the color of light seen on computer screens or mobile phones. Many people think that all LEDs have a bluish hue or glow that they give off, however in the recent years the technology has moved way beyond that. LEDs are now able to produce a variety of warmer colors that are comparable to light form halogen or incandescent bulbs that you may be accustomed too. Today LEDs can produce almost any color of light.
Are LEDs Dimmable?
LEDs are the only bulbs available today that take advantage of the full dimming range available, from 1% all the way up to 100%. Any LED bulb can easily be made dimmable using an electronic dimming switch that may already be installed in your home or landscape.

LED Landscape and Outdoor Lighting
LED and LED lighting is not a one-size-fits all lighting solution. With exact electronic components, all LEDs are not equal. LED lights, bulbs and fixtures are purpose-made and will not function properly if used outside its intended application.
Although some LED products come with a list of applications, buying LED lighting fixtures at your local home depot in the greater San Diego area, might not work for your specific lighting requirements. Creating the desired atmosphere you are looking for is equally difficult.
Where it comes to LED lighting, Lighting Distinctions discourages San Diego home owners to go the DIY route for the reasons as follows:
- LED fixtures designed for interior lighting cannot be used for exterior landscape lighting.
- Specifically-designed LED outdoor lighting such as LED patio lighting is not necessarily applicable to LED pathway lighting or to light up walls and artwork.
- LED lighting comes with a lumen-rating which is equivalent to that of wattage-rating. In creating the desired lighting effect, it is critical to use LEDs with the right lumen-rating.
- LEDs differ in color and temperature, providing different lighting effects.
- LED lighting comes with different beam angles that can create a variety of effects from spot lighting to flood lighting.
- LED lighting comes in different designs and styles, from a standard shape where some LED bulbs can be fitted into the same sockets and fixtures of standard household lights to tube lighting, strip lighting, decorative lighting and reflector lighting.
- Some LED lights do not typically run on AC voltage but require some form of transformer that will convert the voltage from AC to DC for proper operation.
The efficiency of LED lighting starts by assessing the desired objectives and operating environment. Furthermore, it depends greatly on the system design, usage of quality LED and materials. Another important factor is the system installation that requires specialized know-how.
