Maintaining Your Outdoor Lighting Properly

As we move outside to enjoy summer nights in our yards, it’s one of the most important times that your outdoor and landscape lighting in Richmond are working properly and looking great.

Architectural lightingAt Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Richmond, we offer an Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP) to our clients ensuring their lights are always performing at peak performance. Here are some of the lighting system components we pay attention to during system checks:

Outdoor Lighting Fixtures – As landscaping changes and grows, fixtures may need to be moved or repositioned (or landscaping pruned). Additionally, our team will straighten any fixtures they notice are askew.

Bulbs – If your system has any bulbs that are burned out or aren’t providing the desired light output, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives will replace them.

Wires – Wires are buried during the installation process, but they still needed to be checked periodically with erosion. We’ll make sure that all wires are properly covered again. If we notice any that is in bad shape, we’ll replace it!

Connections – Every connection between the fixture, wire and transformer will be checked during our system inspection. Voltage levels are checked to make sure each fixture is performing well without using unnecessary energy.

When we design and install a custom landscape lighting system in the Richmond area, we give our clients their first year’s AMP free. After that, clients can choose to renew it each year. When a system is under the AMP program, it extends your warranty for certain lighting components and provides you with priority service if there is ever an issue with your system.

We at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Richmond want you to enjoy your lights all year round and proactive maintenance is key to that enjoyment. Even with high quality and high performing outdoor lighting fixtures like ours, maintenance is important. Please contact us for any questions.
