Low Voltage Landscape Lighting
Low voltage landscape lighting is a beautiful, flexible, and cost effective way to add illumination to your landscaping, pathway, or outside walls of your house. You can choose between mushroom lights, up lights, down lights, submersible lights, accent lights, or any combination of the mentioned. The possibilities are endless with low voltage lights. We only choose the highest quality fixtures from cast brass, aluminum, or our favorite – solid copper fixtures which weather nicely for our landscape lighting installations. Low voltage outdoor lighting fixtures that require a 12 volt transformer to feed the individual lights. Because these lights are powered by low voltage lighting, wires can be used in places where lighting is not possible with traditional line voltage lighting and tend to use less power than their line voltage counterparts. In recent years, we have switched over to using LED lights for these fixtures which use even less power and last for much longer and love the results. You will too.
Mercury Vapor Moon Lighting
Mercury vapor lights are the perfect way to highlight trees, your building, or provide for an all night security light. Because Mercury vapor lights produce a soft blue/green light, they are an excellent solution to illuminate large areas in your landscaping without creating lighting nuisance or bothering your neighbors. These lights can be installed under eaves, as up lights to highlight trees or your building, as well as installed on top of large trees.
Because Mercury Vapor lights require line voltage and each light is connected to a ballast, these light fixtures tend to cost a more than their low voltage counterparts and running power is a little more complicated and time consuming. Despite the extra cost there is no substitution for the beauty of mercury vapor lamps. The wide angle beam of mercury vapor lights can cover large trees better than low voltage lights and have a bigger impact. The mercury vapor lights also tend to last longer than low voltage halogen lights. Still, each type of lighting has its place and many applications use a combination of low voltage and mercury vapor lights to to complement each other. A new alternative to Mercury Vapor moon lighting is using new LED lighting technology in creating a similar look at a a fraction of the power consumption as traditional HID lights. No matter which method of lighting you choose, Light-Tech inc. is Houston’s landscape lighting installer.
