The Trick to Long-Lasting Lighting: Maintenance

Just like everything in life, a little maintenance can go a long way. Especially with outdoor lighting, it is common for lights to become dim, dingy, or defective over time, due to weathering the elements outside.

To make the most of your new lights, routine maintenance is encouraged through the seasons to keep your lighting looking its best. Not only will your lighting look its best, but maintenance also guarantees your investment will be protected for years to come.

That’s why we offer and highly recommend our maintenance program, which includes spring and fall visits. By checking your lighting twice annually, in different weather conditions, we can track any issues, make quick fixes, and let you know if there are any problems that need to be addressed. You can sign up for this service at any time!

What Does the Lighting Maintenance Program Include?

With visits twice per year – in the spring and the fall – our lighting specialists can monitor any changes that have occurred with your lights and quick solutions. Our eye for details and our familiarity with the Mid-South climate allows us to spot problems and make changes when necessary.

But what does the lighting maintenance program include? Below are the steps we take during each visit:

1. Inspection

To start, we conduct a basic inspection. The entire lighting system is tested to ensure that all fixtures come on and work properly.

2. Maintenance of Lighting Effects

Since your lighting fixtures are outside, they can periodically be repositioned because of external factors, such as landscape growth, weather, or being bumped or moved out of place. If there is any landscaping that is obstructing the light, we lightly trim the growth or reposition the fixture. As the landscape grows, fixtures need to be repositioned to maintain the proper lighting effect. We will also reposition lights if they have been moved for any reason.

3. Timer Reset

Because of daylight savings time, we reset timers and set the correct timing in both the spring and fall. We can adjust these timers as necessary for your preference, as well.

4. Low Voltage Wiring

Wind, shifting soil, and general movement can cause wires to resurface over time. To keep these wires protected, we rebury them to keep them from weathering any further. If wiring is affecting the strength of your lighting, we will investigate further and make any necessary adjustments.

5. Transformer Inspections

We check the source for any problems, examining connections at taps. We check these spaces and clean any debris or insects that may be inside.

What Are Common Lighting Problems that Maintenance Can Prevent?

Lighting maintenance preserves and protects any problems that can pop up. This means, we check and prevent any of the following from happening:

  • Broken or burnt-out bulbs
  • Flickering lights
  • Dimmed lights
  • Visible wiring
  • Growth in the way of light’s path
  • Missing parts
  • Insects or other materials in the lights
  • Lights not responding to timers or automatic settings
  • Any other reported issues or clear damage

You’ve made a wise investment in your home by installing night lights; don’t let that investment go to waste! Continuing the upkeep and care of your lights will improve your home’s safety, appearance, and warmth to visitors. Schedule your maintenance check with us today!
