Outdoor lighting has numerous advantages for your home. For starters, exterior lighting can increase the value of your home. Lighting around your landscape improves your home’s curb appeal and can help keep you and others safe at night. You can use the following recommendations for proper outdoor lighting maintenance throughout the winter and the rest of the year.
Be Aware Of Damaged Lighting Within Your Outdoor Lighting System
Corrosion can also damage your lights, or you may have disconnected wires that prevent your lights from working. Wires should never be left exposed. Lighting that is broken or damaged can endanger your children and pets. If a fixture shows any damage, it should be replaced as soon as possible.
Replace Those Damaged Lights
Any lights in your outdoor lighting system that aren’t working should be replaced. You have the option of replacing them with LED lighting. This is the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly lighting option for your landscape. If certain lights appear dim, you should also consider replacing them.
Consider Using Timers On Your Lights
Timers can save your lights a lot of wear and tear. You can use timers to turn off lights when they are not needed. If your lighting system allows it, you can program your lights to turn on at dusk and off at dawn, for example.
Be Sure To Also Clean Your Light Fixtures As Well
Over time, your light fixtures are likely to sustain some damage. The surrounding landscape can frequently obstruct your lights. Dirt, mud, grass, and leaves can reduce the effectiveness of your lights, particularly at night. Any grass or plants in the way can be cut or trimmed away from your fixtures.
