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 For many Charlotteans that have no outdoor lighting, or those that are operating on aging, outdated or failing systems, this could mean you return home every night to a dark home.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.

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.

The vintage charm of this Elizabeth area home and its landscaping is preserved and enhanced through the collaborative efforts of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte and Solow Design Group

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingOur latest project, located in the Elizabeth area of Charlotte entailed the illumination of the custom landscape design created by Solow Design Group. As always, it is a pleasure to work with a firm with such an incredible reputation in the exterior design industry. To fully complement the renovated landscape of this vintage 1930’s home, we custom designed and installed an outdoor lighting system that transformed the entire perimeter of the property.

In the early 1900s homes typically maintained simple landscape designs consisting of foundation plantings, clipped boxwood and hedge-lined walkways from the street to the front door. It wasn’t until the 1930s that Thomas Church began a movement in residential landscaping that created outdoor spaces as extensions of indoor living spaces, called garden rooms. Following his garden style, hardscapes were brought to the home landscape, with the addition of patios off of back doors and liberal use of plants in natural forms to soften the overall effect.

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingOutdoor rooms extend the home living area. It’s evident in these amazing photos, that Solow Design Group successfully created a garden room complete with sitting areas and walkways that preserve the vintage charm of this property. This in turn provided us with the perfect “canvas” upon which we rendered a complete lighting system to enhance and extend the homeowner’s enjoyment of their newly designed landscape area well into the hours after the sun goes down.

The entire perimeter of this beautiful property has been transformed. Low-growing shrubs and raised beds of perennials around the outside edges of the outdoor patio provide natural beauty and stabilize the patio and walkway flagstones. Notice the curves that were incorporated into the hardscape design which soften the effect and add visual interest throughout the landscape design.

Elizabeth Outdoor Lighting

Amongst the natural areas of foliage and rock created by Solow Design Group, we had a mix of new fixtures and design additions of high quality LED. In addition we converted the homeowner’s existing line voltage to super-efficient LED and converted many of the handmade specialty fixtures the homeowner had picked out for her design, which are quite whimsical and converted those to LED as well for continuity of the lighting design.

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingThe benefits of converting an existing system to LED lighting include:

  • a more clean, natural and beautiful illumination
  • an electric bill which will cost substantially less each month
  • longer bulb life with less frequent replacement
  • less of a carbon footprint on the environment
  • UV free bulbs which are less prone to attracting insects and they are more durable and resilient than ordinary lighting systems

No matter the architectural style of your home or whether you need a single bulb area illuminated or you are looking for a comprehensive lighting system for all of your home and surrounding property, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is your first choice. A custom created outdoor lighting design can be an integral part of your outdoor living space and landscape…adding just the right touch to your property. Extend your outdoor living to the hours after the sun goes down, whether it is for entertaining or just relaxing in the evening with loved ones.

LED lighting is a cleaner, more natural and beautiful illumination

Charlotte entryway lighting (2)Making sure the Queen City’s homes and their surrounding properties are always shown in their best light is what Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte has been doing for more than 17 years. During that time we’ve seen some fantastic changes in this industry. In the early part of our business, traditional halogen systems were considered cutting edge, but as time has passed and technological advancements have been made, LED systems have taken that leading spot.

LED Outdoor Light bulbs

LED bulbs last much longer and are more energy efficient

We keep up with these advancements so we can keep our customers informed and up to date with lighting options which have less energy consumption, less bulb replacement, and less negative impact on the environment…all of which are positive savings for you, our client. Obviously, when it comes to LED lighting less is always more.

Lighting the way to a greener future, these innovative illuminators use 75 percent less energy, last 25 times longer than incandescent light bulbs, and do both at a cooler temperature. In the energy industry, as well as for homeowners, the combination of these impressive features into a single bulb along with the new warm and inviting sunlight-like color rendering capabilities make LEDs a homerun, especially when compared to halogen or incandescent bulbs.

If you currently have a traditional lighting system, either because you chose not to go with LED at your initial installation or it was purchased at a time when LED outdoor lighting was not as accessible, learning this information may have you thinking, “I really wish I would’ve chosen an LED system.” Well we have good news–all is not lost. Converting your existing halogen or incandescent outdoor lighting system to LED is a viable option for many homeowners and well within reach.

Charlotte architectural lightingIt starts with a full system inspection to see if LED conversion is possible. Most traditional outdoor lighting systems such as halogen can easily be converted to LED, especially if they are less than 12 years old. In addition, a well-maintained system stands a greater chance at being a suitable candidate for LED conversion and in most cases, the conversion consists of only a lighting implement (or bulb) conversion.

In the event that your existing system is older, we can provide an LED equivalent to any fixtures that do not meet criteria for conversion through bulb implementation due to their age or qualifications. Our outdoor lighting professional can inspect your existing system and determine if your system is a candidate for conversion. We can usually retro-fit about 95% of our lighting and a lot of our competitors’ systems too. Once your system is deemed fit to undergo the conversion, you can start enjoying the many benefits of LED outdoor lighting.

Benefits of LED outdoor lighting

  • LED outdoor lighting systems consume nearly 90% less energy than traditional outdoor lighting systems. These savings will make you smile each time you pay your electrical bill.
  • LED outdoor lighting systems have extended longevity with longer bulb life that needs replacement less often. For example a typical halogen bulb will burn for approximately 2,000 to 4,000 hours, whereas an LED will last a whopping 50,000+ operating hours — Wow.
  • LED is a “greener” technology because it leaves less of a carbon footprint on the environment.  LED’s are responsible for less greenhouse gases by reduced carbon dioxide emissions. LED’s also contain no harmful chemical such as mercury that makes handling and disposal dangerous.
  • LED Outdoor Light bulbs

    LED bulbs last much longer and are more energy-efficient

    LED’s are UV free which means no ultraviolet rays which are prone to attract insects.This means using LED in your landscape, deck and patio lighting installation is a plus because it will not attract insects that can invade your outdoor living enjoyment.

  • LED’s are more durable and resilient than ordinary lighting systems — shock resistant, and also react better to changes in temperature, weather conditions and repeated cycling. LED’s will better withstand the demands needed by a bulb placed in outdoor situations.
