Premier Outdoor Lighting FAQS
make your home accessible by lighting up your path
What's wrong with traditional outdoor spotlights?
In a world, glare, consider how it looks indoors once you have a lamp without a shade. Parts of the room have glare; other spaces are in dark shadows. That identical bulb under a lampshade, however, will produce a more attractive, usable light, as well as create a mood for the environment. It’s the same principle outdoors. a standard spotlight might do an excellent job of lighting up the porch, but leave the walkway in shadows or complete darkness. A sudden change from bright light to darkness also impairs visibility. With low voltage landscape lighting, fixtures are installed to provide a subtle, even light. And most of people will agree, the light given off a low-voltage fixture is solely more attractive than a spotlight.
Who installs outdoor lighting? Can I do it myself?
Low voltage landscape lighting is a specialized field. It takes a trained eye, hands-on experience, and an intensive understanding of voltage drop to put in a system properly. Many do-it-yourselfers try to light their properties with solar lighting kits, only to be disappointed in the quality of the fixtures and therefore the effectiveness of the light itself. Solar lighting kits installed by the do-it-yourselfer usually end up being replaced by professional low voltage systems.
Can I afford low voltage landscape lighting?
This is America. Of course, you can. Seriously, you would like to ask yourself what you’ve invested within the landscape, and whether it’s worthwhile to increase the number of time you (and others) can use and enjoy that landscape. If you’ve invested in an exceedingly breathtaking blossoming specimen tree, as an example, landscape lighting enables the nighttime enjoyment of its beauty and color. A wonderful deck, properly lit, often are going to be used more often within the evening than during the day. If you’re taking pride in your home and enjoy being outdoors, landscape lighting is a wonderful investment.
How long can I expect my system to last?
Ideally, forever. Today’s fixtures and transformers are more durable than ever, and bulbs typically provide about 3000 hours of illumination. Many professional-grade fixtures have a lifetime warranty. However, it’s advisable to sign up for a maintenance contract to make sure optimal performance with your low voltage landscape lighting system. As plantings, trees, and shrubs mature and alter, lights will need to be adjusted. And, fixtures should be checked and cleaned regularly.
