This is the week that begins our fall and winter holidays. As soon as the candy is put away, we all begin preparing for Thanksgiving. You have probably started seeing the commercials from the furniture companies and the carpet cleaners all in an effort to help you get your home ready for the pending company that is coming. While you are making your list of home improvements, don’t forget about your Wilmington outdoor lighting system. Making sure it looks its best for the holidays and your guests is as easy as calling Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington.
As company arrives at your home for the holiday season, the first thing they will see is your outdoor lighting system. Give it as much attention as you do the décor inside. By doing so, you create that warm, inviting atmosphere from the very beginning. Here are three simple solutions to get the most out of your Wilmington landscape lighting:
Replace the bulbs
With Daylight Savings time ending this weekend, you may start noticing your outdoor lighting system more as you return home in the dark. Does it look unbalanced? It could be because of burnt out bulbs or overgrown shrubbery. Halogen bulbs even begin to dim before they reach the end of their life cycle, which can cause an uneven effect. If they are burnt out completely, you will have dark areas. Or if your shrubbery has grown this summer, it may be blocking the light beam from shining where it needs to be. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington can replace all your halogen bulbs so they are illuminating correctly. We’ll even trim your shrubbery to keep the lighting where it needs to be.
It may have been some time since your original Wilmington outdoor lighting system was installed. If so, you may be ready to add on to your system. Many people start with landscape lighting for the front of their home and add on down the road. If that is the case, or if you would simply like to have your outdoor lighting system redesigned, the professionals at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington can help you. Since all of our systems are custom designed for each particular client and their homes, we can take your ideas and expertise to create or redesign a system perfect for your space.
Along the same lines as adding on, you may want the addition to include Wilmington LED outdoor lighting fixtures. LED has come a long way in the landscape lighting arena and our technologically advanced LEDs are as beautiful as their halogen counterparts with additional benefits. LEDs are much more energy efficient and their “bulbs” last up to 50,000 hours so you won’t be changing them every year or so as with halogen. Plus, LEDs use less wattage so they are easy to add on to an existing system with your current transformer and almost all systems can be retrofitted to LED, even if we didn’t initially install it.
In the midst of your holiday home improvements, don’t forget to take a good look at your outdoor lighting system. It is the first thing your guests will see and the last memory of a great holiday spent with family and friends. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington today to get your system in the best shape for the upcoming holidays.
