What Voltage is Landscape Lighting?
Having landscape lighting installed on your property is a great way to highlight its beauty after nightfall. If you’re interested in having this type of lighting installed on your property, you may be wondering what voltage is commonly used to power these lights. The answer to that question depends on a number of factors, but it will almost always be either low voltage (12 volts) or line voltage (120 volts). Let’s take a look at these voltages and why they are used in certain situations.
Low Voltage (12V) Landscape Lighting
This type of lighting is most commonly used for residential outdoor lighting, as it is easier to install than line voltage lighting, and doesn’t require you to hire a licensed electrician. This makes low voltage lighting an ideal option for homeowners who want to do the installation themselves. While this lighting can make a home stand out, it doesn’t do as good of a job on larger properties because the lights just aren’t as strong as lights powered by line voltage.
Line Voltage (120) Landscape Lighting
Often used for larger residential properties, commercial properties, and public venues, line voltage is a much more powerful type of lighting. It will need to be installed by licensed electricians due to the dangers involved and the requirements that must be met. If the property you’re trying to light is large, it’s worth hiring a professional to have these lights installed.
