Preparing Your Home for the Holidays

It is officially November which means, you guessed it, the holidays. Thanksgiving decorations are out in stores and we’ll begin to see Christmas ones. This ever so busy season constantly sneaks up on homeowners. All of a sudden you’re making your home even more inviting for friends and family. Lighting can make a big impact on making your home more welcoming.

Outdoor lighting in Richmond & Charlottesville

If you have an existing lighting system, November is the perfect time to make sure it is in tip-top shape so it looks great not only for the holidays, but for all of winter. And now that it’s getting darker earlier, you’ll be reminded of the impact proper illumination can make. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we offer maintenance year round to our clients. Here are some of the things we check:

Your timer. As the time changes we need to ensure that your timer setting does too. You shouldn’t have to come home to dark house if you have lights. Many of our timers will do this automatically. If you don’t have a timer that resets itself, discuss having this fixed with your outdoor lighting company.

Lens covers. If you have well lights of any kind, you need lens covers. They keep moisture and leaves away from the lights itself. This time of year, it’s good to check to make sure that everything is still in good working condition and the cover is clean and clear for the optimal effect.

Light output. When the time changes we notice the difference in light clearly. Take note of your system’s light output. If anything seems off, discuss having it checked with your outdoor lighting provider.

If you don’t have an existing system and have considered adding one, now is a great time to do it. Beautiful architectural lighting instantly makes your home more inviting to visitors and neighbors. Each Outdoor Lighting Perspectives system is custom designed for your property. We accentuate the best aspects of your property including colors, textures, architectural details and landscaping. The property is left with increased curb appeal and will be safer with lit pathways and steps.
