To the many who are returning to Naples for the winter – Welcome back! The temperatures are mild, the sun is shining, and this is still paradise. Relax and enjoy the season. For both those who are returning and those who call Naples home year round, fall is the perfect time to do maintenance on your outdoor lighting system. Why? Because now that the temperatures are no longer sweltering, you want to spend more time outdoors, and with Daylight Savings time coming to an end on November 2nd, that time will likely be spent after the sun goes down.
Here on the Gulf Coast, the elements can be harsh. Rains and wind cause erosion around your wiring, and they can even beat on your fixtures so they are no longer aimed with the precision they once were. During routine landscaping, fixtures can be bumped and jostled. Your dogs might even do this when they are dashing through the yard after that squirrel. In addition to general repositioning and adjusting, outdoor lighting systems need to be checked to ensure all components (wiring, bulbs, and transformer) are functioning properly. Bulbs burn out, and well lights can accumulate debris. Debris accumulation and damaged wiring can lead to fires, so it is important to give your system the attention it needs. A little care now can save you time and money later.
If you are an Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples’ client, you may already have an Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP). If so, this work is covered by your plan. All you have to do is give us a call. If you’re not an OLP Naples’ client and own a system that was installed by another provider or contractor, there is no need to worry. We can still perform maintenance on your system and are happy to do so, especially if you cannot reach the contractor who performed the installation.
