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.

Let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte make DST easy and convenient!

OLP Daylight Savings TimeYou’ve heard the old saying “Spring Forward & Fall Back” since you were a kid to help your remember which way to turn the clock to compensate for Daylight Savings Time (DST).  Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is here to remind you that November 1st is just a few days away and it is the day to push your clocks back one hour as our days get shorter.

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

Losing an hour creates a host of issues since the evening arrives sooner than just a few months ago. It affects a lot of things you might not be thinking of, such as when your landscape lighting turns on and off. What your timer was previously set to may no longer work for the members of your household, so it means dealing with the annoyance of re-programming your current timer. You’ve got to dig out the manual and figure out which way to turn all those troublesome dials, switches or buttons again! We can help you avoid the nightmare that the season time change wreaks on your landscape lighting by installing the best gizmo ever—and astronomical timer. No, it has nothing to do with astronomy and the moon and stars, silly! It’s an awesome and very simple device that AUTOMATICALLY adjusts to daylight savings time so you have to do nothing at all!

Charlotte landscape lighting Outdoor Lighting PerspectivesWe simply input your exact location into the timer and a sophisticated GPS is able to determine when daylight and nightfall happens in your area and when your system needs to turn on and off. It’s genius! Your kids will not arrive home to a dark home when they get home from school, and you will easily see the driveway and your front door when you come home from work. Everyone will feel safe thanks to good visibility and not coming home to a creepy dark home.  You don’t ever have to think about adjusting your outdoor lighting again thanks to this neat device.

Charlotte architectural lighting (1)Years ago, old-school landscape lighting timers had buttons or dials had to be moved every few months to account for how long or short the days were. If you’ve got one of these antiquated timers, then you will love the ease of an astronomical timer! There is no need to do a thing to account for seasonal  time changes, as this smart device handles everything for you. It doesn’t get any better than this for a fuss-free and painless way to keep your landscape lighting working right. A battery backup takes care of everything even if there is a power outage, too.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives - Brantley Front Entry

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 green 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. Let us install an astronomical timer on your outdoor lighting so you can take advantage of the benefits they provide.
