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
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.
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.
