Remember when your landscape lighting looked all shiny and new, lighting up your trees and driveway to rave reviews? Except now it’s a different story. Many lights are out, things are looking a bit shabby. Repairing your lighting system can be a headache. We’re not just talking about doing it yourself as a homeowner. It’s not always a cake walk for the technicians who work with low voltage lighting systems professionally either.
Maintenance of a lighting system can help prevent costly repairs in the future and keep your system looking it’s best. Maintenance also allows for adjustments to your system as your landscape matures.The low-voltage lamps we install typically have an average life of about 4,000 hours – which is equivalent to 12-18 months of life. However there is no written guarantee from the manufacturer. So, to make sure all of your lights are working properly, we recommend a 100% bulb replacement every 12 months. When a lamp burns out, it reduces the voltage draw on the system and causes the others to burn brighter than normal, eventually causing successive burnouts of lights and connections.
Repairing fixtures and replacing lots of poor connections can add up very quickly. Rather than putting band-aid after band-aid on a failing system, you should consider purchasing or converting to an LED landscape lighting system. All of our LED products have a 5-year full replacement warranty and a rated lifespan of between 25,000 – 50,000 hours (10-15 years of life at average usage) and they save over 75% in energy compared to halogen lighting.
Great lighting has the power to turn your home or business from the ordinary to the extraordinary. It adds an extra layer of beauty and security to your entrance, driveway, walkway, decking, patio, and more. You can brighten entrances, highlight landscaping and increase peace of mind while away. Customize your porch lights to turn on at dusk, off at dawn, or at specific times. Outdoor motion detectors and timers can all be integrated into your outdoor or landscape lighting to add security and convenience. Automate indoor switches to control exterior lights, low-voltage landscape transformers and much more.
Circuit breakers that keep tripping, a flickering light on the back porch, or path lights that just won’t work properly—all of these are common problems homeowners face that have something to do with their electrical systems. But figuring out where the problems is stemming from can take a lot of work. Our electrical repair technicians will find out exactly what’s causing the problems, and what other problem may be happening—or beginning to happen—for the same reasons.
