Choose The Best Landscape Low Voltage Light Bulbs for Your Home
As a home or business owner, you appreciate the aesthetic value and practical benefits of outdoor landscape lighting. Low-voltage light bulbs are a popular choice for outdoor lighting because they can be easily installed and offer energy-saving benefits. If you’re installing new outdoor lights or replacing an existing setup, we can help you select the best low voltage light bulbs for your space.
Types of Low Voltage Light Bulbs
Best Pro Lighting sells these categories of low voltage landscape bulbs for outdoor lighting to illuminate your pathways, wells, garden, sitting areas, and small planter spaces:
Halogen/Incandescent Low Voltage Light Bulbs

We offer these halogen low voltage landscape lighting bulbs:
Quartz Halogen Light Bulbs
JC BI PIN: We offer 10W, 20W, 35W, 50W 12V quartz halogen bulbs. They are excellent for use with our low voltage pagodas, floods, step, tulip, and mushroom lighting, and last up to an average of 2000 hours.
Low Voltage Halogen Spotlights
OSRAM MR16 20W, 25W, 35W, 50W 12V: Osram MR16 Halogen bulbs with clear glass lens cover, white flood with UV filter. Lasts up to 2000 hours. They’re perfect for directional lighting, up lighting, spot lighting, modern bullet or any low voltage fixture that uses an MR16 bulb.
Halogen Floodlight Bulbs
PAR 36 25W, 35W, 50W 12V: PAR 36 25W Halogen Flood Bulbs with new and improved fire-sealed technology. These low voltage landscape light bulbs are used for our low voltage well lights and last up to 3000 hours.
LED Low Voltage Landscape Bulbs
The efficiency of LEDs exceeds that of traditional incandescent bulbs by up to 90%, and their lifespan is up to 25 times longer. We offer this selection of LED low voltage bulbs:

3.6 Watt LED PAR 36 Bulb 12V Bulbs are used for our low voltage well lights and are very power-efficient.
Benefits of Low Voltage Light Bulbs
Using low voltage bulbs for outdoor lighting is a great way to save money and energy. Here are some of the top benefits of low voltage lighting.
1. Energy Efficiency
a. Lower Power Consumption - Low voltage light bulbs operate at 12V or 24V, consuming less power than 120V bulbs.
b. Environmental Impact - These bulbs’ lower energy use reduces your carbon footprint compared to regular incandescent bulbs.
2. Cost Savings
a. Reduced Electricity Bills - They use less electricity to produce the same brightness as higher voltage bulbs.
b. Longevity and Lifespan - Low voltage bulbs last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs before needing replacement.
3. Safety Considerations
a. Lower Fire Risk - There is much less chance of igniting materials compared to high-wattage bulbs.
b. Minimizing Electrical Hazards - Low voltage reduces the risk of electric shock if wires are damaged.
With so many advantages, it's easy to see why low voltage bulbs for outdoor lighting are so popular. Let’s see how the best low voltage bulbs can help beautify your outdoor space.
How Low-Voltage Light Bulbs Enhance Your Landscape
Low voltage lighting’s versatility makes it a perfect fit for many different applications in your landscape. Here are just a few of the ways you can use low voltage bulbs:
Uplighting trees is a great way to show off their impressive size and form at night. The narrow, concentrated beam that landscape low voltage outdoor light bulbs provide efficiently illuminates branches overhead without wasting any light.
For pathways, low voltage lightsspaced at intervals give off a warm glow. These lights can define winding routes without overpowering the landscape.
To highlight around a well area, position halogen flood low voltage light bulbs to accentuate the stones and shape of the space.
With our low-voltage bulbs and beautiful fixtures, you can easily add charm to your property wherever you place your lights.
Why Low Voltage Bulbs are Good For Pathway and Garden Lighting
You can benefit from using low voltage bulbs for your pathway and garden lighting because they offer a beautiful glow and low power usage. Your pathways and garden areas can be pleasingly lit, and the lights don't produce much heat, so they last longer. This saves you money on energy bills and bulb replacement costs.
Choosing the Right Landscape Low Voltage Light Bulbs
There’s a lot of terminology to sort through when it comes to low-voltage bulbs for outdoor lighting, but it doesn't have to be complicated. Let’s take a look at some of the basic terms and definitions to help you get started.
Wattage refers to the amount of electricity a light bulb uses. It measures the power consumption of the bulb. Higher-wattage bulbs produce more light but also use more energy.
Lumens measure the total amount of light output from a bulb. A higher lumen rating means the bulb produces brighter light. Lumen output ranges from 10–20 lumens for low-output decorative bulbs to over 2,000 lumens for very bright floodlights.
Color temperature describes the color or warmness of the light emitted. It's measured in kelvins (K). Lower kelvin ratings, like 2700K-3000K, produce a warmer, more yellow/orange light. Higher kelvin ratings, like 4000K-5000K, produce a cooler, blue-toned white light.
Consider lower wattage for efficiency, a lumen output that provides sufficient brightness, and a color temperature that gives pleasing, natural illumination along pathways or within your garden or seating areas.
Environmental Impact of Using Low Voltage Light Bulbs
What’s great about low voltage bulbs is that they use less fossil fuel to power them. Additionally, low voltage bulbs last significantly longer than other types. This reduces waste and the resources needed to manufacture new bulbs. They also don't contain hazardous materials like mercury, making disposal safer.
