Swimming Pool Lights: Are LED or Halogen Pool Lights Better?
Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights are one of the most popular fittings for swimming pools and here at Billabong Pool Services & Supply, we truly believe that even though they may cost you a little more up front, LED lights for your pool will actually save you time and money.
As a greater emphasis has been placed on energy-efficiency in recent times, LED technology has become a standard feature of swimming pools in the Sunshine Coast and these have slowly been replacing incandescent bulbs and halogen pool lights.
Energy Efficient vs Affordability
Yes, LED pool lighting is more expensive up front than halogen pool lights, but they will actually save you money in the long run due to their energy-efficiency. Halogen pool lights are initially cheaper, but this is only because they don’t last as long and will need to be replaced after 1,500-5,000 hours. By installing LED lights in your swimming pool, you’ll see greater savings in your electricity bills and they will last up to 30,000 hours! LED pool lighting is therefore not only durable but also unarguably superior in quality and, in the long term, much more cost effective.
Solar Powered & Sustainable
Billabong Pool Service is proud to be one of the leading distributors for Ledec Solar Pool Lights. They are game changers for people looking for convenience, sustainability and low cost when it comes to lighting up your swimming pool on the Sunshine Coast. As they are also solar powered, each light will store up to 1 hour of sunlight for every hour of exposure and best of all, these LED Pool lights are adhesive and don’t require cables, so costs are kept way down!
