Do you remember how you felt the first time you saw your home or outdoor living spaces lit up after the professionals at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City installed your system? The effect was dramatic and you fell in love with your space all over again. Do you look at your lighting now and think it just doesn’t look as bright and beautiful as it did that first season? That may be true. Although our halogen lights do have an average life of 5,000 hours, they will begin to dim slowly and you may not notice the change over time.
Professional outdoor lighting installation makes a dramatic statement on all of your outdoor spaces.
Maintaining your system isn’t just to keep it looking its best. It also keeps your system running safely night after night. Even though our fixtures are designed to be low maintenance, small adjustments may be necessary to get your outdoor lighting system back to its best.
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City offers 4 easy maintenance options for your outdoor lighting system:
1. First and foremost, make sure that recent storms, birds or children have not covered your outdoor lighting fixtures with mulch, leaves or anything else that can keep the heat produced from the bulbs from escaping. The lighting fixtures need to be kept free from debris that can accumulate.
2. Install our cost-effective optional lens covers. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives plastic and glass lens covers help keep the debris from covering the bulb or from insects making nests inside the fixture. They are easy to install and do not affect the color of the lighting. Lens covers are much more cost-effective than replacing a fixture due to malfunctions from obstructions.
3. Going green with LED lighting is a superb option for your system. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives patent pending LED lighting technology provides an 80% energy savings just by switching to our LED systems. Our LED bulbs, which can be retrofitted in ours and other systems, have a rated life of 50,000 hours, or an average life of 19 years. The color and illumination is indistinguishable from traditional halogen lights.
Our annual maintenance plan will ensure your system will continue to be just as mesmerizing as it was the first season.
4. The most convenient option is to give us a call at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City to sign up for our thorough Annual Maintenance Plan. With this plan, we will come to your house and replace all light bulbs, repair any damaged wire, straighten fixtures, inspect the transformer, reset or check the timer, trim or adjust for plant overgrowth, and perform simple changes to enhance the effects of your lighting. Throughout the year, you receive priority response and repairs with no service charge. Your lighting system remains headache-free and operating beautifully.
