The New Year is the Perfect Time to Schedule Your Outdoor Lighting Checkup

The New Year is all about new beginnings. Whether it is a personal goal you have set for yourself, or a home improvement endeavor you plan to complete, the debut of 2017 provides a fresh start. Now that the New Year is in full swing and we have put away the holidays until next year, many Charlotte homeowners are setting their sights on improving not only their lifestyle but their home as well. This may mean beneficial additions or changes to your home and landscape or just getting organized and staying on track with maintaining all the facets that make your house a home.

In much the same way it is important to schedule an annual tune-up for your car to keep it running smooth, dental cleaning or annual check-up to ensure your health, it is also important to schedule inspections and maintenance on things around the house too! If you have an outdoor lighting system, January is a great time to schedule an annual review of your overall system to confirm it is running for optimal performance.

Are you coming home to a dark home every night?

charlotte-front-entry-lightingThe recent end of daylight savings time means evenings is now arriving earlier. For many Charlotteans that have no outdoor lighting, or those that are operating on aging, outdated or failing systems, this could mean you return home every night to a dark home. As the night’s darkness continues to sneak up at us, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte encourages you to turn your attention to your outdoor lighting system, (or lack thereof) and take notice if it is in need of any maintenance or service.

Charlotte LED Outdoor Lighting

We pride ourselves on not only designing and installing custom lighting systems, but also providing ongoing maintenance to keep that system performing at peak level. With the dark months upon us, and the arrival of the holiday season, now is the perfect time for a lighting system-tune up. Here are a few things we encourage homeowners with landscape and architectural lighting to look for:

Charlotte Garden LightingDimming or uneven illumination

It’s natural for light bulbs to dim over time, but your system overall should always have an even wash of light that effectively illuminates the property. If you’ve noticed it dimming, or uneven illumination there are bulbs out or the light is no longer cohesive across all sections and it may be time to have your bulbs updated.

Depending on the age of your outdoor lighting, you may have halogen lights that will dim more quickly. We now recommend converting your halogen system to LED for added energy-efficiency and performance. The typically LED light lasts up to 50,000 hours. An LED upgrade or conversion is much easier than you may think. In the hands our highly skilled technicians, you can be getting more longevity and cutting energy costs in no time, and if you want to make additions to your system, we may even be able to add more fixtures to your current transformer than you thought. Since LEDs use less wattage, more lights can be added than if they were halogen.Install lens covers to keep your outdoor lighting looking its best.

Lights and lens covers

The Queen City is revered for its abundance of beautiful trees, however this time of year means those trees are losing their leaves. We recommend any up lights have lens covers to keep those leaves away from the bulb for safety purposes.

Keep your outdoor lighting system's wiring behind the scenes.Wiring

We carefully bury all the lighting wiring when we install a new system, but with normal erosion, wiring can become exposed from time to time. This can also occur from normal day-to-day and seasonal activities, such as fall landscaping or raking/blowing fall leaves. If you walk your property and see any wire, make sure to call us to inspect your outdoor lighting system and rebury any wire that has become exposed. Every new system we install includes a one year free Annual Maintenance and Repair Plan contract. After that, you can purchase an additional year for a reasonable fee. This includes most everything you will to keep your system in perfect working order.

It’s well worth having a maintenance plan for your peace of mind and for the longevity of your system. We will even offer the same plan on our competitor’s plans, too! So if they don’t offer you a protection plan, we will be happy to safeguard your investment and make sure it’s in great shape year after year. If you are coming home to a dark house every night, now may also be the best time to consider the addition of outdoor lighting to your property.

The Holiday Season is Just Around the Corner — is Your Outdoor Lighting in Top Shape?

We are one the eve of one of the busiest times of the year. From the fast approaching trick-or-treaters that will soon come to call, to Thanksgivng and Christmas all the way through New Year, most homes will feel like a revolving door of friends and family the next few months. With this in mind, we are poised to make sure our homes are clean, welcoming and looking their best. Making sure your existing landscape and outdoor lighting is operating in top form will create a positive first impression as guests come to call.

Charlotte Outdoor Lighting for Halloween

With the days getting shorter and nightfall making an earlier entrance, it is also important to make sure your outdoor areas are well-lit so your outdoor enjoyment can continue well into the evening. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can tackle the job of maintaining your existing system, adding to it or installing a brand new lighting system for you from scratch. We can put you on the schedule right now for an autumn inspection so you are ready to enjoy the season and busy holiday season ahead.

charlotte-front-entry-lighting

If you have an existing outdoor lighting system we will inspect it to assure your system is working properly and that any burnt out bulbs are replaced. This is also a great time to consider converting an old-school halogen system to an all LED outdoor lighting system since the bulbs last way longer and consume less electricity. We come in and check all your wiring and make sure it’s all intact and we re-bury any wire that has made its way to the surface due to any landscape activity or inclement weather too. We also carefully inspect all your fixtures to make sure they are in good shape, aligned properly, and free of dirt or spider webs, and we will trim any plant overgrowth blocking your beam of light.  We also check your transformer to ensure that it is carrying the load of wattage properly and that your timer is functioning as it should.

Charlotte-backyard-lighting

The fall is also a good time to decide if you wish to add additional lighting to enhance your system or perhaps you feel that an upgrade is in order. We can give your property a whole new look in terms of ambience and mood if you are ready for a change of how your home and property are currently illuminated. We can add lighting to the areas where family and friends primarily congregate in your backyard and make sure that those spots are lit up so they not only look beautiful, but that they are safer as to avoid slip and falls. Lighting steps and entrances into a patio or deck, for example, is a great candidate for additional light so that you and your guests can easily navigate. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte will ensure your pathways from your driveway to your yard are visible enough to navigate safely — and to avoid coming home to a dark home night after night.

Nothing is more welcoming than the warm glow of Charlotte outdoor lighting on a chilly night.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte answers your questions about LED upgrades and conversions

Charlotte outdoor lighting fixturesIf you are considering an LED upgrade for your outdoor lighting system. Or if you are considering converting your existing system to LED, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is here to help you every step of the way. We are the area’s premiere choice for outdoor lighting design and installation. The truth is, upgrading or conversion is really much easier than you may think. In the hands our highly skilled technicians, you can be cutting energy costs in no time, and if you want to make additions to your system, we may even be able to add more fixtures to your current transformer than you thought. Since LEDs use less wattage, more lights can be added than if they were halogen.

  • Here are some of the most common questions we receive from homeowner’s wishing to upgrade or convert to LED:

#1)Charlotte LED Outdoor Lighting How much will moving ahead with LED cost?

Answer: If considering a conversion or upgrade to your current system, on average, it will cost 3-4 times what our Annual Maintenance Program costs. We only recommend investing in LED if you plan to reside in your home 5 years or more. Much of the cost of moving ahead with an upgrade or conversion will be recouped through the energy savings, bulb replacement and maintenance costs you will have saved during that time. Also keep in mind the “green” benefits of converting to LED. It is hard to put a price tag on the benefits of reducing your carbon footprint because these choices help the environment and all of us in the long run.

#2) Do I have to change my fixtures out?

Charlotte landscape lightingAnswer: Not necessarily. Most traditional outdoor lighting systems such as halogen and incandescent can easily be converted to LED. To determine if your system qualifies, one of our outdoor lighting professionals needs to inspect it and if it is deemed fit to undergo the conversion, you can start enjoying the many benefits of LED outdoor lighting. We can usually retro-fit about 95% of our lighting and we can retro-fit our competitors lighting in most cases following a thorough inspection.

#3) Will I need a new transformer or timer change?

Check for damages to wiring, fixtures and bulbs, and call an outdoor lighting expert to make repairs.Answer: No. When we come to retrofit a system, our trained installers will be sure to check the condition of not only your fixtures, but also your wire, transformer and timer, leaving you with what feels like a brand new system.

#4) How long does an LED bulb really last?

Answer: The life of an LED bulb can be between 30,000 and 50,000 hours saving you in light replacement and maintenance. This is 10-15 times longer than the average bulb life, of 4,000 hours with halogen.

#5) Realistically, how much money will I save in energy costs?

Answer: Your total savings is dependent on the size of the system and time it is running. On average, a system of 25 lights or more that runs from dusk-dawn each day could save you an estimated $15-$20 per month in energy savings. Over the course of 3 – 5 years, this amount represents a substantial savings.

Daylight Savings Time Begins March 13th — How Does Your Outdoor Lighting Timer Stack Up?

Welcome springGet ready for the onset of spring by gaining an hour during the Sunday, March 13th Daylight Savings Time change! We get more light for daytime fun in the backyard for barbeques, gardening and outside sports with the kids. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte utilizes a convenient astronomical timer on each of our outdoor lighting systems so you never have to worry about manually reprogramming it to make up for the change in hour. You can forget about finding your manual and recalling which dial or button to hit to make sure your landscape system accommodates for the seasonal change in light ever again.

The right timer will give you peace of mind by regulating your outdoor lighting system.

The right timer will give you peace of mind by regulating your outdoor lighting system.

Astronomical timers work with the power of GPS to pinpoint exactly where you live and what the light requirements are in your specific area so your landscape system knows precisely when to turn itself on and off. You never have to do a thing to it, as it is “set it and forget it” technology.  It  doesn’t get any easier than this! No one in your household ever has to come home to a dark house again since our sophisticated timers know exactly when to illuminate your property, driveway, front entrance and any other feature you want. Even if your power goes out, your timer will continue to remember what it was set to thanks to a battery back-up.

Charlotte entryway lighting (2)

The days of toying with your old manual timer are gone forever because our astronomical timers automatically set themselves based on your GPS coordinates. They are convenient, simple to use and amp up the level of security and safety around your property. Since our timers change to adapt to the seasons, the lights will go on and off to make it look like someone is always at home. Our timers adjust themselves accordingly each day so your home always looks lived in and occupied which deters thieves. Additionally, they improve the usability of your property since it’s easy to get on your driveway, walk on your pathways and reach you front door since the lights are always on at the right time when needed preventing potential accidents.

Beam spreads on this Charlotte home accentuate the homes facadeSince your lights are turned on and off based on the available light, your outdoor lighting system will never run when it’s unnecessary. This can save you on your power bill because the waste is eliminated, and it’s better for the environment, too.

Astronomical timers know automatically how to best utilize existing daylight hours, so they save you money since you are not consuming power to light your property and home when it’s not required. They are environmentally-friendly since they help save you money and keep power costs down. There’s a lot to be said for the convenience and cost savings that an astronomical timer provides. If you are still using a manual outdoor lighting timer, let us upgrade you existing outdoor lighting system, including our “set it and forget it” timer so you can enjoy the benefits they provide.

Charlotte outdoor lighting enhances your outdoors during every season!

Charlotte landscape lighting in the winterOutdoor lighting is one of the few outdoor improvements that provides year-round enjoyment, no matter what the season, or what Mother Nature dishes out. Keep in mind that outdoor lighting, unlike other genres of exterior additions, isn’t just about the warm weather months, it’s a benefit that gives you four seasons of beauty and allure, and aids in function, during all seasons. The Charlotte area has had it’s fair share of cold temperatures and inclement weather lately. Even when temperatures dip into the single digits, or your property is coated in a blanket of snow or ice, your landscape can take on a magical presence thanks to outdoor lighting.

Outdoor Lighting in the Winter

If you can’t go outside on a very cold night, you can still sit indoors and enjoy the majesty of your property through your back windows all lit up in splendor.

Just as the famous prose from Skakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet ..”But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks.”  this also defines the benefits of having outdoor lighting during the late fall and winter here in the Queen City perfectly! If you can’t go outside on a very cold night, you can still sit indoors and enjoy the majesty of your property through your back windows all lit up in splendor. Curling up with a good book in the living room while gazing outside will certainly have a calming effect that can be extremely relaxing after a busy day.

Charlotte tree lighting

Charlotte tree lighting in the autumn.

Our outdoor lighting is designed to take advantage of the changing seasons and dramatically improves your lifestyle — both indoors and out. During the warm weather months it enhances all the fun associated with outdoor entertaining, BBQ’s, al fresco dining, late night swims by the pool and more. In the cooler months, outdoor activities such as gatherings by your outdoor fireplace or fire pit with a cup of hot chocolate and even the ease of outdoor food preparation and dining is enhanced.

Safety is another benefit of outdoor lighting at your Charlotte home. Outdoor lighting will  make your property easier and safer to maneuver when it comes to being able to clearly see wet or icy areas that may be on your walkways and sidewalks. Illuminating your garage and the darker corners of your property also deters crime and promotes the appearance as if someone is always home.

Elizabeth Outdoor Lighting

Don’t wait until the spring and summer months to consider the addition of outdoor lighting. Right now is the perfect time to sit down with one of our lighting designers to plan a lighting scheme for your property where you will immediately see the rewards of how outdoor illumination can improve your lifestyle during all four seasons of the year!

LED Conversion is a Snap When Your Outdoor Lighting has been Maintained Properly

landscape lighting in CharlotteAt Outdoor Lighting Perspective of Charlotte, we can’t emphasize enough the importance of continuing maintenance of your outdoor lighting system. Like any other hardworking electronic device in your home such as your HVAC unit, your appliances, garage door and other important components that need to function daily—regular annual maintenance is key to their longevity and extended use. You can get many years of good use out of household systems that are properly cared for instead of being neglected and therefore shortening their life expectancy. It’s way cheaper to do proper maintenance instead of having to replace a whole new unit.

Outdoor lighting maintenanceWe recently completed an extensive LED conversion on a large system that included 83 fixtures that we installed about 6 years ago here in the Charlotte area. Of course, LED’s were not the norm at that time, so halogens were used as was customary then. Well fast-forward to updated technology that now features low-consumption LED bulbs that are easy on the wallet, good for the environment and produce a lot more light with minimal wattage. Best of all, the bulbs last over 50,000+ hours so bulb change-outs are minimized dramatically, which also cuts costs. This conversion to LED’s was a pretty simple for us because the homeowner had kept everything in tip-top shape through the years with the vigilance of our Annual Maintenance & Repair Plan. The homeowner saved a heap of money because we were able to use the existing lighting fixtures without the need for a whole newly purchased system which would have cost a bundle. In this case, that expense was unnecessary since Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte’s fixtures are specially designed to be upgraded and retrofitted years later. You sure can’t do that with many of our competitor’s fixtures or those cheaply made overseas ones you get at the big box stores!

Outdoor lighting maintenace is importantIt doesn’t matter if you want to add additional zones later on, increase the size of your existing system or even change the size of the beam of light, etc. You’ve got plenty of flexibility with every fixture Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte sells because they are specially made for us to our specifications. We know exactly how they are constructed, so we can easily adapt them to future needs and changes which save you a lot of dough later. There is no need to scrap a system that is in good working order made with quality American materials of all metal construction. If your system has been well maintained and is in good condition, we can adjust it to fit your current lifestyle needs at any time of ownership.

Every new system we install includes a one year free Annual Maintenance and Repair Plan contract. After that, you can purchase an additional year for a reasonable fee. This includes most everything you will to keep your system in perfect working order:

A small amount of maintenance is all it takes to keep your outdoor lighting looking its best.

A small amount of maintenance is all it takes to keep your outdoor lighting looking its best.

-Replacement of your halogen or LED bulbs if they ever burn out (though we highly suggest switching to LED’s as they last 10x longer)

-Make sure knocked over fixtures are standing upright and straight

-Repair broken or frayed wires and burying wires that have surfaced above ground

-Inspect and clean your transformer

-Reset/inspect your timer

-Trim back foliage overgrowth that is covering the beam of light of your fixtures and prevents good illumination

Foliage growth may need to be trimmed to be sure your lighting is not obstructed.

-Make simple changes to enhance the effects of your lighting

-You get priority repairs on your system any time you call with no additional service charges for the visit.

It’s well worth having a maintenance plan for your peace of mind and for the longevity of your system. We will even offer the same plan on our competitor’s plans, too! So if they don’t offer you a protection plan, we will be happy to safeguard your investment and make sure it’s in great shape year after year.
