Even though winter isn’t ideal for working outside, you must ensure your outdoor lighting is serviced regularly for it to function correctly. Outdoor lighting provides your residential property with many benefits, so it’s critical to maintain your lighting. Here are a few easy things you can do this winter to keep your outside lights in optimal condition.
Cover Exposed Wires In Your Outdoor Lighting
Throughout the winter season, the wires that run beneath your outdoor lights may get exposed or make their way to the ground’s surface. You should ensure cables are concealed before any icy conditions or elements come. If the wire shows any signs of being damaged, you should make sure that it is repaired as soon as possible Simply give the experienced professionals at Aqua Bright a call to assist you.
Clean The Components Within Your Outdoor Lighting System
Cleaning your LED lights is a great way to keep the lenses of your lighting fixtures clean. Debris and dirt of all kinds can cover the exterior parts and coverings of your lighting. Cleaning them is a great way to ensure that your lighting remains bright. This is especially true for light fixtures that are low to the ground and are located around pathways, as well as for anything that has been treated with ice melt or rock salt. To maintain the lenses’ clarity and ensure they continue functioning appropriately, wipe them down with a gentle microfiber towel and use the appropriate cleaning.
Inspect Your Lightbulbs
Wide ranges of temperatures can occur throughout winter in mild climates. The lifespan of your outdoor lighting may be significantly reduced in colder temperatures. When you detect that a bulb has burnt out, replace it with a LED type. Lights within a low voltage system consume energy while turning on, even if the system has a low power consumption. A decrease in the bulb’s lifespan is another potential effect of an increase in the voltage. Aside from the temperature issues, the longer nights and shorter days mean that the outside lighting in your home is getting greater use, resulting in a shorter lifespan for the bulbs.
