NiteLites - National Outdoor Lighting Franchise Promotes Smart Building Through Environmentally Sound Lighting Systems
NiteLites outdoor lighting systems are built and strategically installed to minimize energy consumption and light pollution. This national Franchise is dedicated to the installation of minimally obtrusive 12 volt lighting and promotes green building programs which are fast becoming the building industry's standard. Green building is development that protects the environment and NiteLites Outdoor Lighting meets these environmental needs with energy efficient products and techniques.
For years NiteLites has been an industry leader in the production and installation of low voltage outdoor landscape lighting with specialization in both residential and commercial design, installation, and service. NiteLites provides a wide variety of outdoor lighting including: architectural lighting, landscape and garden lighting, deck lighting, fountain, pool, and path lighting.
Fluorescent line volt lighting receives a great deal of press for its energy efficiency. But low voltage lighting also saves energy and offers benefits not available with 120 voltage lighting. Low voltage lighting, by definition, operates at 30 volts or less. Surprisingly when powered properly, low voltage lighting can produce two-and-a-half times as much light as line voltage incandescent lamps. For example, a 50-watt low voltage lamp generates as much light as a 125-watt line voltage bulb.
The per-lamp savings for each hour of operation can be as much as $7.50, based on a kilowatt-hour rate of 10 cents. Multiplied by the number of lamps installed in an architectural and landscape lighting system, the savings become significant. In fact, it is widely accepted that low voltage lighting systems cost approximately 90% lss to install, and 30% lss to operate. This energy efficiency produces a strong case for low voltage lighting for architectural, landscape, security and even general lighting applications.
Other reasons to consider low voltage lighting include: light quality, design flexibility, safety, and reduced waste. Light pollution is a growing problem in many areas throughout the U.S. By maintaining an even glow on the focal point rather than the glaring lights produced by high voltage lighting, NiteLites provides the added elegance of lighting while protecting our skies from intrusive "over lighting". NiteLites fixtures are designed to control glare, many of their fixtures are shielded -making them low glare. This means they have a top which redirects the light towards the ground. For most upward pointed lights, NiteLites carefully aims those beams to building eves or tree top canopies creating a great nighttime ambiance with minimal impact on artificial glow.
In addition to their energy efficiency, low voltage lighting is often specified for commercial space because no other type of lighting can duplicate its light quality. Low voltage systems have the flexibility to establish a desired ambience. The ability to make lighting inconspicuous, and even transparent, rates as an important design criteria for most green programs as well as for lighting designers at NiteLites. The comprehensive package of benefits low voltage lighting provides for commercial and residential environments deserves consideration for a wide range of lighting applications.
Another consideration is the durability of NiteLites fixtures. NiteLites specification grade low voltage lights are built to last, which is different from many short lived lights on the market which often end up in landfills within a relatively short period of time. The majority of our lighting fixtures are made of brass and copper so if, for example, they are damaged by landscape equipment, we can recycle them.
NiteLites' world headquarters, located in Franklin, Ohio, specializes in the manufacturing, design, installation, and lifetime maintenance of top-quality, specification grade low voltage lighting for both residential and commercial applications.
