What are the benefits of low voltage lighting?

What’s the deal with commercial low voltage lighting and can it actually benefit commercial businesses? The answer is yes. Low voltage lighting is the solution you’re looking for if you want to save time, money, and energy. Residential AV integrators have worked with low voltage lighting for years, but now, commercial AV dealers are shifting from incandescent and halogen lights to low voltage and making an astronomical impact on an AV ecosystem’s cost and usability.

First popularized in residential dwellings, low voltage lighting produces a warm glow of light that’s not harsh or unappealing to the eye, making it the perfect solution for illuminating stairs, beneath cabinets, gardens, pathways, ceiling lights, and sconces. Beyond the comforting ambiance low voltage lights create, commercial businesses ranging from restaurants to retail can capitalize on the many benefits of low voltage lighting.

 

Benefits of using low voltage lighting for commercial AV projects include:

1. Easy installation

No need to hire an electrician when you can get the job done yourself. Installing low voltage lighting has never been easier with the quick installation manual you’ll receive when you purchase the lights. It’s a simple process of attaching your wires to a power transformer and then attaching them to the low voltage light that won’t electrocute you in a DIY gone wrong.

2. Energy efficiency

Low voltage lighting emits the same quality of light as an incandescent bulb, but it only uses 20 percent of the energy, an environmentally friendly option. This goes hand in hand with cost efficiency since low voltage lighting consumes less energy resulting in a lower electric bill.

3. Sustainability

Keeping the ball rolling on cost efficiency, low voltage light has an increased lifespan compared to other forms of lighting which reduces waste and frequent replacing. These lights last 50 times longer than halogen and incandescent lights making your lighting system less of a hassle to maintain.

4. Low heat contribution

Incandescent and halogen bulb fixtures are known to burn up and overheat, but low voltage light will remain cool to the touch since they produce a minimal amount of heat and energy. These lights won’t heat up an entire room to an unbearable degree and you won’t have to risk burning yourself on the bulb if you touch it.

5. Versatility

Bulbs with lower voltage means they can be smaller and fit into unique designs. They fit where incandescent bulbs cannot, so you can get creative and place these lights in virtually any area you please. They also won’t appear bulky or out of place.

6. Safety

Low voltage lighting is – and you won’t even believe it – low voltage. This makes your installation process easier and safer without the risk of getting electrocuted. Low voltage lights only use 12-volts of electricity as opposed to the prevalent 120-volt lighting options.
