Being the Wilmington area’s premier outdoor lighting company since 1998 has enabled us to meet many wonderful homeowners, business owners and those who call Cape Fear their home away from home. While we recently participated and presented in the Home Expo and remodeling show held at the Schwartz Center in downtown Wilmington, we were reminded of some of the most frequently asked questions by those considering the addition of outdoor lighting. While we perceive all questions to be important when helping to make the decision to add outdoor lighting at your home or business, there are five questions in particular that we feel are the most commonly inquired:
This question comes up probably the most often. Indeed it seems simple, but it takes the knowledge and experience of an outdoor lighting professional to truly answer. Part of our design process includes what is called a “property survey evaluation”. This involves a visit to your home or place of business by one of our outdoor lighting designers. During the evaluation, we discuss your needs, desires and “vision” of how you want your property to perform ( and look) in the evening. We then walk the property along with the homeowner, or business owner, taking into consideration any defining architectural elements, landscape elements, special outdoor living areas or areas where evening safety is a concern. From there, we can schedule a nighttime demonstration allowing you to “see” the outdoor lighting in its truest form in order to make a more informed decision in regards to moving ahead with your design.
No. Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington we don’t believe in pricing out over the phone on a fixture quantity basis. We are here to deliver the effect of outdoor lighting, not to sell fixtures. It is very difficult to quote a price over the phone without first seeing the property, and discussing your personalized preferences, needs and desires. Our high quality fixtures out perform the competition in terms of beauty and light spread — case in point, what other companies will need 4 lights to illuminate our fixtures can most likely get the job done with one or two. We want to provide you with an outdoor lighting installation that will bring enjoyment for many years to come — our designs are timeless, with that in mind, we want to take our time and have your project perfected the first time around.
#3) Which is better, halogen or LED?
Homeowner preference is really a matter of choice. However, LED is more energy-efficient, durable, long-lasting and eco-friendly than traditional outdoor lighting systems. Advances in recent years also prove that the color quality of today’s LED is just as warm and inviting as halogen. Can you tell the difference?
LED is still more costly upon install but will pay for itself over time with the savings you recoup from lowered energy costs.
Yes. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington offers annual care and maintenance packages that will keep your system running at optimal performance year-round.
