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 For many Charlotteans that have no outdoor lighting, or those that are operating on aging, outdated or failing systems, this could mean you return home every night to a dark home.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

Houzz Confirms Lighting Desires that Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte’s Clients Already Demand

Backyard-pergola-lightingThose of us at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte aren’t surprised by the recent survey conducted by Houzz that point out automated outdoor lighting is all the rage among homeowners. The article also indicates upgrades in exterior lighting that convert them from outdated traditional halogens to energy-saving LED’s rose to 32% of homes compared to 28% last year. We know this is unequivocally true because we are doing a HUGE amount of new LED installs and retro-fits to existing halogen systems.

Houzz found that homeowners are very interested in lighting key areas that primarily add not only beauty, but also add a safety factor to their properties, too. They study showed that target areas families most want to illuminate are:

  • Elizabeth Outdoor LightingPathways — 60%
  • Decks/Patios — 57%
  • Trees/Shrubs — 53%
  • Steps — 32%
  • Home Architecture — 28%
  • Driveway — 26%
  • Water Features — 24%
  • Outdoor Structures — 24%
  • Pots/Plants — 21%
  • Swimming Pool — 10%
  • Art/Sculpture — 9%

Clearly, areas that families most utilize are what are important to them, and decks/patios are one of the most extensively used areas in most backyards in America thanks to barbeques, dining, relaxing and outdoor entertaining. Houzz also found that more than half of homeowners prefer to use the expertise of a lighting designer when it comes to the layout of their landscape system. There is no comparison to the quality of our USA made fixtures in contrast to what is sold at the big box home improvement stores. Our high-grade, all-metal fixtures are designed to last for years regardless of sun, rain, ice and snow; and we use the thickest gauge wire available on the market today. Our competitors use cheap materials that break down after only a few seasons and do not back their products.

We know your paths and walkways are zones that help you travel from part of your garden to another, so getting you around your property safely is a must.

Charlotte outdoor lighting adds vibrancy to homes in NoDa, Plaza Midwood and South End!

Elizabeth Outdoor Lighting

Charlotte landscape lighting in Elizabeth.

Exciting things are happening in neighborhoods such as NoDa, Plaza Midwood, South End and Elizabeth in Charlotte. These areas are alive, vibrant and trendy thanks to the gentrification that has been taking place with the renovation of gracious old homes that are getting a second life. Remodeling can be seen everywhere as residents are moving in and re-inventing these properties inside and out.

These homeowners are pioneering some big changes in these often forgotten vintage neighborhoods, and may be buying homes with antiquated or no outdoor lighting at all. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is working with many families moving into these districts to update their existing outdoor landscape lighting or help them plan out brand new custom system systems that fit the style of their newly renovated homes.

Elizabeth outdoor lightingWith new LED technology options, it’s truly a no-brainer to use it in outdoor landscape lighting, since it will save money over the long term and it’s environmentally friendly. You get 45,000+ hours of use from LED bulbs and they can be easily replaced with our specially designed American made all metal fixtures. You can avoid the constant change-out of old-school halogen bulbs that are also much higher wattage and cost more to own over time. We offer an extensive style of fixtures that can match any home design in these trendy areas—it doesn’t matter if you’ve got a craftsman, colonial, modest cape or a towering Tudor. We can give you a traditional look if that’s what you are after, or we can go uber modern to give a totally unexpected appeal.

Charlotte architectural lighting (1)There are plenty of other hidden benefits that homeowners rarely think about when it comes to exterior landscape lighting—including added security. Thieves aren’t interested in having the light shining on their devious activities, so the lighting designers at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can help you illuminate those darker corners where the bad guys tend to hide to offer you peace of mind and protection. Your home always looks like there is someone there thanks to our timers that can turn your lights on and off at any random times you choose. Of course, there is also the safety value that is added to your property because guests can clearly see where they are walking and avoid a trip hazard. Walking the family dog, taking out the trash and navigating your driveway are all easily done when visibility is good thanks to evening outdoor lighting.

Charlotte outdoor lighting for contemporary upscale homes

Another bonus to backyard lighting is that it enhances outdoor entertaining way past sundown. You can hang out on the patio or deck, cooking burgers on the grill and enjoy great conversation with friends in the evening thanks to the ability to see. We can customize fabulous lighting schemes that offer a gorgeous wash of light without being harsh or blinding. Everything will have a natural, moonlit vibe that showcases your home’s style and façade in the best possible light and extends outdoor fun time.

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.

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.

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.
