Keep Your Naples Outdoor Lighting System Performing its Best This Fall

Maintenance keeps your outdoor lighting system looking and performing its best.

Maintenance keeps your outdoor lighting system looking and performing its best.

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.

Outdoor Lighting Timer Adjustments Made Easy as Daylight Savings Time “Falls Back”

Every year, half way through spring and fall, our worlds are jostled as Daylight Savings Time moves the hour hands of our clocks. The great thing about the fall jump is that we go backwards, giving us an extra hour of sleep rather than taking one away. However, this does mean we lose sunlight in the evening and night comes more quickly. In a few weeks, you and your family will likely be coming home to a dark house. If your outdoor lighting system is already on a timer, you probably have the lights set to come on at sundown, but it is operating on the “spring forward” settings. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of trying to fine tune your timer to accommodate the time change, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples has you covered.

Come home to a welcoming, illuminated house by adjusting your system timer.

If we installed your system and you have kept your Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP) up-to-date, timer adjustments are covered under that plan. Of course, if you don’t have an AMP we can still service your system, even a competitor’s system. We can reset your timer for you. Our technicians will come out and make all the necessary adjustments so your system comes on at dusk and your property is beautiful, welcoming, and safe. While we are at your property, we can go ahead and perform some routine maintenance – checking your wiring, replacing any burned out bulbs, and repositioning any fixtures that may have shifted or that illuminate shrubs or trees that may have grown. The last thing you need is another to-do item in your busy life, so take advantage of the AMP, and let us handle it for you.

Our smart timers can control more than just your indoor and outdoor lighting and can be customized for your lifestyle

If you really want to make setting your timer easier and take more control of your lights, you should consider Lighting Control Automation. LCA is more than just a smart timer; it can control all the electrical functions in your home because it literally controls your outlets, inside and out. With LCA, we can program your outdoor lights to turn on and off or to dim or strengthen automatically. You can even control your heat or air conditioning, which can translate into energy savings. LCA can also turn lights on and off using the specific GPS location of your home. This means that your lights come on at dusk whether that is 6:30pm November or 5:30pm in December. And the best part? You don’t have to lift a finger. Once LCA is installed, our technicians don’t even have to come to your property to make adjustments. It can all be done from the office via computer, and yes, you can control the system too with a few taps in the LCA app that can be installed on your smartphone or tablet.

 

Imagine always coming home to a beautifully lit property, having lights turn on and off in your normal patterns even when you’re not at home, and being able to activate the heat remotely on a particularly chilly evening. Lighting Control Automation can give you these abilities, and coupled with our Annual Maintenance Plan, your biggest concern about Daylight Savings can be whether you lose or gain sleep. Contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples today to set up a maintenance visit or to learn more about LCA.

4 Simple Maintenance Options from the Naples Outdoor Lighting Experts

Do you remember how you felt the first time you saw your outdoor living spaces lit up after the professionals at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples installed your lighting system?  The result was remarkable 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 stunning 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 with time and you may not have noticed the change.

Maintaining your system isn’t just about keeping it looking its best. It also helps your system run safely night after night.  Our fixtures are designed to be low maintenance, not no maintenance, so small adjustments are necessary to keep your outdoor lighting system at its best.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples offers 4 simple maintenance solutions for your outdoor lighting system:
1. First and foremost, make sure that recent storms, winds, wildlife or children have not covered your outdoor lighting fixtures with debris or anything else that can keep the heat produced from the bulbs from escaping.

 

2. Have our cost-effective tempered glass lens covers installed. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples tempered glass lens covers help keep debris from collecting on the bulb or from insects
