Just as the lower temperatures of a San Diego winter shouldn’t keep you out of your pool, neither should an earlier sunset. As long as your pool has an effective lighting system in place, you’ll have no trouble swimming late at night. Invite your entire family into the pool for a safe, fun late-night swimming experience.

If your pool light still uses a conventional incandescent bulb, it’s time to make the switch to LED lighting. Not only are LED lights better for the environment than traditional bulbs, they can also help you save on your electric bill. LED lights are extremely energy-efficient – they last longer and use less heat than their incandescent and fluorescent counterparts.

Here are a few reasons you may want to call a San Diego pool service to have LED lights installed:

More color variety
Instead of the standard white-colored pool light, consider giving your pool a uniquely-colored glow for your late-night swims. LED lights are available in a variety of colors, including blue, red, green and amber, so you can select a lighting shade that suits your personal preference.

Greater control
LED lighting systems can automatically adjust themselves to ensure that energy is being conserved effectively. Energy Star’s outdoor LED models have an automatic daylight shut-off feature and motion sensors that will detect when someone has entered your pool. When LED lighting is paired with pool automation controls, San Diego pool owners can conveniently control their pool lights from inside the home, so you can turn them off without leaving your bed upon realizing that you forgot to do so earlier.

Become part of the green-energy movement
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 2012 saw the installation of 49 million LEDs in the U.S. This saved Americans an incredible $675 million in annual energy overheads. As Americans strive to further improve energy efficiency in the near future, LED lights are expected to grow in popularity, and the U.S Department of Energy estimates that they will account for 75 percent of light sales by 2030. A switch to LED lights over the next two decades could result in saving $250 billion in energy costs, preventing 1,800 million metric tons of carbon emissions and cutting our nation’s energy consumption in half. With LED lighting installations, benefiting our planet and saving money go hand in hand.
