Take Our Lighting For A "Test Drive" We Promise You Will Fall In Love With The Results

You wouldn’t buy a new car without first taking it for a test drive or a new house without having close look inside each and every room, would you? The same should go for outdoor lighting. As is the case with any significant investment you make, it is a good idea to test the waters so to speak, if given the opportunity.

Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio North, we realize no two outdoor lighting systems are designed exactly the same, because no two homeowners, or homes, are exactly the same. Tastes are different, landscapes are different and your home’s architecture is different. To ensure that our clients are satisfied with their lights for years to come, we offer a complimentary nighttime design demonstration. This is especially important on projects that are larger than the addition of just a few path lights, or with customers that have no prior outdoor lighting experience to draw from.

This is why we offer nighttime demonstrations. With a nighttime demonstration, you can see the full effect of what your house will look like with outdoor lighting. That moment when we flip the switch and our customers see their home illuminated at night is magical.

The nighttime demonstration is just one facet of our personalized outdoor lighting service which also includes a design consultation. First, one of our trained outdoor lighting designers will sit down
with you and discuss the goals of the system. While aesthetics are the most common reason to start the conversation, we often hear that homeowners are concerned about certain parts of their property being
too dark at night or the desire to add functionality to an outdoor living space. We’ll ask you about features of your property like decks, patios, pathways and more you would like to highlight and if there is a particular mood you’d like to set.

After the design consultation, we may then suggest setting up a temporary lighting system. We use battery operated outdoor lighting fixtures placed in the exact spots that the permanent system would be installed. This enables you to see first hand how your design would appear. When the temporary system is set up, that’s the time to make updates, tweaks and changes to perfect the design. This is done in unison with the designer and the homeowner’s input. The homeowner, for instance, may decide they want to highlight parts of the property that they didn’t initially expect. For example, while walking the property with the lights, the homeowner may realize that part of a walkway is too dark. We can add a path light right then and there so that a new appointment doesn’t need to be set up.

San Antonio-area homeowners love the option of a design demonstration because there are no surprises. Once the design is agreed upon, it is marked for the install. The installers will have notes on the exact fixtures and the exact placement. For you, the impact our outdoor lighting makes will be remarkable. One day you’ll come home to a dark property and then next, it will be full of light!

If you are looking to hire an outdoor lighting company, I encourage you to ask if they offer a complimentary nighttime design demonstration. Trust me, you’ll feel better if you get to test drive your design before making the investment/ Please give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio North a call if you have any questions or concerns.

Avoid the Danger Zone: Choose A San Antonio Outdoor Lighting Professional for Your Project

When installing or maintaining outdoor lighting, it’s best to choose a professional San Antonio outdoor lighting company. Without the confidence that such a provider brings, you may find yourself too close to the danger zone, left with lighting that’s not installed correctly. Many other providers, like irrigation installers or landscaping companies, promise they know everything about outdoor lighting. While they may be experts in their field, lighting is a completely different concept. Just because a company understands landscaping, doesn’t mean they have the expertise for installing or maintaining outdoor landscape lighting.

Take a look at just a few of the many safety hazards that can occur when outdoor lighting is not installed by a professional:

Improperly installed transformer — fire hazard to home and surrounding landscape

Overloaded circuitry to the transformer and loose/overloaded connections

Loose hub connection

Incorrect bulb wattage — overheats the fixture and lens, leads to melting and potential fire risk

Qualifications Matter in Outdoor Lighting

All too often, we receive frantic calls from San Antonio residents who need help with their landscape lighting after using a less qualified team. We’ve seen it all from improper fixture use like incorrect bulb wattage, which can overheat, to loose or overloaded connections on the transformer. A huge danger and mistake that many non-lighting companies make is not installing lens covers over bulbs. The lack of lens covers allows debris to contact the light itself, which could result in a fire hazard. In addition to the botched design and install, these companies usually also leave you with no warranty or service.

Your anticipated outdoor lighting project should turn out as you expected, with no challenges. You’ve chosen to enhance your home and create an inviting space. So, you need to have the right team to do the job. After all, you wouldn’t let a roofer install your windows, or a plumber fix your electrical. Put your trust and vision in the hands of a professional San Antonio outdoor lighting provider.

Choosing the Right Company for Your San Antonio Outdoor Lighting Installation

When selecting the right company for your outdoor lighting, there are many questions you should ask. These questions will enable you to make the best decision for your project.

• Is outdoor lighting your specialty?
• How many years of experience does your company have in outdoor lighting?
• Can you show examples of recent installations?
• What’s your design process?
• What types of outdoor lighting do you install?
• Who performs the installations?
• Do you offer a warranty or maintenance plan?

Any reputable outdoor lighting company should be able to provide you with answers that put you at ease. If not, then that’s a red flag.

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio, you’ll never feel even close to the danger zone.
