When is the Right Time to Service Your Landscape Lighting System?
The importance of outdoor lighting maintenance cannot be overstated. To ensure functionality, as well as safety, of your lighting system, proper and regular servicing is required. In other words, once you have made a significant investment in your outdoor lighting, do not just forget about it! Not maintaining and servicing your lighting system can end up costing you more money, due to the high cost of repair calls for such things as:
- Damaged bulbs and broken fixtures as a result of yard maintenance (weedeaters “eat” more than just weeds sometimes!).
- Fixture corrosion from heat and humidity.
- Damaged wires due to yard maintenance or critters.
- Lights needing to be repositioned due to tree growth causing shadows.
- Using the wrong bulb for your fixture.
- Burned out bulbs.
- Plant growth, dirt, etc. that can block the light’s path and obscure the light.
One of the most crucial services that is rendered by an outdoor lighting company is the annual maintenance agreement of the lighting system. If your company does not offer this service then you should probably consider finding a new landscape lighting firm. A lighting maintenance agreement should include at least one annual service call (typically either in spring or fall, often around when we change the clocks) where the technician checks the fixtures and wiring, cleans the fixtures and lenses, repositions the fixtures if necessary, replaces any lamps, checks the timer, etc. Lighting maintenance agreements often include a discount on any parts needed.
By maintaining your lighting system, your landscape lighting professional can head off expensive repairs, prevent needless outages or dark spots and allow your landscape lighting to do its job of making your home more safe and more beautiful.
