Exterior Lighting Maintenance
In order to extend the life of your outdoor lighting system, routine maintenance is recommended at least once a year. Plants and trees grow, lawn care can sometimes do unexpected damage, or weather can also damage your fixtures, all of which requires adjustments or re-positioning. The lenses on fixtures can become clouded, dirty, or smeared, which dulls the brightness of the beam. If this happens to your security lighting, all lenses should be cleaned properly. As part of Andy’s comprehensive services, we offer routine maintenance as part of new installations during the first year.
When examining your landscape lighting system, our technicians will look for common lighting issues that can cause damage. Three of the most widespread problems are burned out bulbs, connection issues, and overgrowth.
Burned Out Bulbs
With most conventional lighting systems, changing independent bulbs is quick and easy. Unfortunately, landscape lighting systems often hang bulbs from hard to reach lamps where homeowners can’t safely change them. Our outdoor lighting technicians have the tools to repair your landscape lighting system and replace any burned out bulbs.
Wire Connection Issues
If an isolated section of your landscape lighting system stops working, you probably have a connection issue. Your outdoor lighting technician will take a closer look at the affected area and determine if there is corrosion, an electrical overload, or an electrical short.
Your landscape lighting system showcases the beauty of your yard, but without regular maintenance, your yard can destroy your landscape lighting system. Your outdoor lighting technician will look for places where shrubs, trees, and other plants could be causing connectivity issues. By trimming and pruning overgrown plants, they can solve existing problems and repair your landscape lighting system.
Benefits of Outdoor Landscape Lighting
While landscape lighting is a great way to improve your curb appeal, it also has several practical benefits. Here are a few of the ways that regular landscape lighting maintenance can help you:
1) Improve your home’s security
The main purpose of security lighting is to deter criminals by making it difficult for them to approach your home without being seen. If your security lights are not working properly, they cannot effectively deter criminals. Regular landscape lighting maintenance can help ensure that your home’s security system is always operating at peak efficiency.
2) Enhance your property value
A well-lit home is more inviting and can appear larger than a home that is poorly lit. If you are thinking of selling your home in the near future, regular landscape lighting can help increase your property value.
3) Improve your outdoor living space
Landscape lighting can transform your outdoor living space into a relaxing oasis. If you enjoy spending time outside, routine landscape lighting maintenance can help you get the most out of your outdoor space.
4) Reduce your energy costs
If your landscape lighting is not working properly, it can waste a lot of energy and drive up your electric bills. Regular landscape lighting maintenance can help you save money by ensuring that your system is running as efficiently as possible.
5) Protect your investment
Landscape lighting is a significant investment, and like any other investment, it requires regular care and maintenance to stay in good condition. By investing in routine landscape lighting maintenance, you can protect your investment and extend the life of your system.
6) Help you save energy
The most efficient lighting system is one that is properly maintained. Regular landscape lighting maintenance can help ensure that your system is running at peak efficiency, which can save you money on your energy bills.
7) Help prevent accidents around your home
One of the main reasons to keep your landscape lighting in good repair is for safety. Poorly lit areas around your home can lead to accidents, falls, and even serious injuries. If you have young children or elderly family members living with you, it’s especially important to make sure your property is well-lit to help prevent any accidents.
8) Deter crime
In addition to enhancing your home’s security, landscape lighting can also help deter crime. Well-lit homes are less likely to be targeted by criminals, so lighting installation can help keep your family and property safe. We recommend monthly landscape lighting maintenance to ensure that your system is always operating at its best.
