Can’t you just hear your Beachwood, OH, home crying out for low-voltage landscape lighting? It wants to be seen, wants to be noticed, wants to be appreciated from the street.
If you don’t have landscape lighting installed at your Beachwood, OH, home, you may not realize how beautiful your property could be if it were gently illuminated at night. Spotlights judiciously placed to highlight the canopy of your most beautiful trees could turn your front yard into a magical showplace after dark. When landscape lighting looks that good, we call it “nighttime curb appeal.” You want that.
Besides showing off your home, landscape lighting would increase safety for guests as well as family with low-set path lights lining your driveway. In the back yard, landscape lighting around your deck, patio or pool would extend the amount of time you could enjoy your outdoor living spaces after dark.
Doing your research: Seek out homes with landscape lighting
This is what we recommend: Select a few of your favorite neighborhoods in the Beachwood area and drive through them searching for homes with landscape lighting. Each time you spot a good example of landscape lighting that grabs your attention and makes you wish your property looked that great, make a mental note of what you see.
Sometimes landscape lighting creates such a dramatic overall impression it’s hard to focus on the specifics. When that happens, it means the landscape lighting was designed and installed by professionals, not amateurs. Somebody knew what they were doing there. You’ve heard the expression, “more than the sum of its parts.” That’s the effect the best landscape lighting creates. You don’t see the individual parts as much as you see the overall impact of a job well done. Most landscape lighting installed by the homeowner without training or experience does not look that good.
Understanding voltage: Why landscape lighting is referred to as low-voltage
Most U.S. homeowners are familiar with standard electrical current in our homes being 120 volts. LED outdoor lighting, however, uses only 12 volts of electrical current. You can think of volts as the electrical version of water pressure. With outdoor light fixtures made to run on 12 volts, you certainly don’t want to feed them 120 volts! Of course, you don’t need to worry about that; Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Northern Ohio will make sure you have the right fixtures powered by the correct voltage.
For today’s landscape lighting, we recommend low-voltage LED lights for several reasons. LEDs produce a warm, pleasing color, are durable and have a longer bulb life than older lighting technologies. However, the biggest reason to use LED for your landscape lighting is the energy savings. LED landscape lighting uses up to 80% less energy, which means your monthly utility bills will be much lower than if you used halogen or incandescent landscape lighting.
While transformer is the name of a popular children’s toy, in the business of outdoor lighting it’s the piece of equipment we use to convert 120 volt household current to 12 volts. Again, this isn’t something you need to worry about. You can trust that your professional landscape lighting designer and installer with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives will properly convert the voltage for your Beachwood home’s landscape lighting.
