While we’re still in the midst of winter, it will soon be springtime in Charleston. It’s a chance to refresh, renew and reinvent everything from the wreaths on our doors to the landscaping in our yards. Since we are spending more nights outside, it’s also a great time to check out your outdoor lighting system to see if it needs any repairing, refreshing or retrofitting.
The winter we experienced this past year was harsher than any most recently. We had winds, ice and even the rare snowstorm. All these elements can be hard on your outdoor lighting system, even if Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston installed it. Although we use superior copper fixtures that can withstand our salty air, the pressure from the wind and the weight from the ice and snow can knock your fixtures around to where they are not lighting the area intended. The wiring from your system may have been pushed above ground with the freezing and thawing cycles. Or you may have lost some landscaping due to the temperatures and will be replacing it this spring. When you call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston, we can help get your outdoor lighting system looking as good as the day it was installed by repairing, refreshing or even retrofitting it
- Repairing your outdoor lighting system. Just as your landscaping needs some fine tuning from time to time, so does your outdoor lighting system. Fixtures get shifted, wiring surfaces, bulbs burn out and your landscaping grows. Let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston service your system. We’ll straighten your fixtures, rebury the wire, replace all burnt out bulbs and even reposition the beam to ensure it is illuminating properly. With just a few modifications, your system will look as good as the day it was installed. We can even service outdoor lighting systems installed by other companies. And, you can rest assured that we will be around year after year to continue making your system look the best it can.
- Refreshing your landscape lighting. Spring gives a lot of people the chance to plant that extra tree they’d been thinking about or the deck they’d been planning all winter long. When adding landscaping or outdoor living spaces to your home, take the extra step to enhance that project by adding outdoor lighting. Maybe there’s a dark corner of your home that could be enhanced with an extra fixture or a play area in your back yard the kids could use at night with the proper lighting. Adding on to your existing outdoor lighting system is easy to do when you call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston.
- Retrofitting your current system to LED. Have you been hearing all the buzz about LED lighting? While very popular for the inside of your home, LED outdoor lighting had a slow start. The past systems gave off a cold, bluish tint that was not suitable to light your home and landscaping. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston’s LED outdoor is superior to those systems. Our LEDs give off a warm, enticing effect and are indistinguishable from halogen systems. Along with the beautiful illumination, they also save you money with lower energy costs and lower maintenance costs while leaving a smaller footprint on our environment. Plus, your halogen fixtures can be retrofitted to LED easily, without the need to replace all the fixtures. And, because LEDs use less wattage, more fixtures can be used with your existing transformer.
What are you waiting for? Get outside and take a look at your existing outdoor lighting system. If it needs a little maintenance, additions to the system or if you’re interested in upgrading to LED, call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston today. Giving your home a fresh new look for Spring is easy with the help of our professional outdoor lighting designers.
