Texas has both spring and summer. However, Texas is a mix of both. We can all agree on one thing: it is always warm and plenty of outside time. Here are some Spring and Summer Lighting Tips to help you get ready for summer outdoor activities.
Your outdoor lighting system should be no different than the ones you have around your home. What about your car? Your AC? How do you maintain your lawn? Your outdoor lighting system, like all other systems, requires regular oil changes and replacements. It is important to inspect and maintain your outdoor lighting system regularly to ensure it continues to work well for many years. Let’s look at some ways you can do that.
Texas winters have not been anything to worry about, but recent years have shown that anything is possible. We need to do better at winterizing homes, lives, and everything that keeps us alive. We need to be concerned about snow, ice and freezing temperatures. You can check your lighting for damage from the winter months. Illuminations Lighting Design can help you with any repairs, including outages, damaged fixtures, burned out bulbs, exposed wiring and other issues.
Rainy weather is something we are used to around here. It is important to monitor the quality of lighting fixtures. Weather conditions can cover bulbs and lenses with dirt and other debris. You may need to have your lighting cleaned if it is dimming. This will ensure that the light shines through properly and you don’t waste money. As the soil changes or vegetation grows, fixtures can move, tilt and shift. Lighting fixtures are designed to be precise so it is essential that they are properly aligned and cleaned.
You are most likely using lighting services if you also use other landscaping services. You may want to make sure your lighting system is not affected by any recent landscaping work. Spring is a popular time to landscape. Sometimes, you may need to lay new mulch or add soil. However, if your fixtures are blocked by plant matter, it can be difficult to see the light. You can even endanger fixtures by burying them completely or partially. Any type of cutting can cause damage to wiring. This is especially true if the wiring is hidden by landscaping. If you are having landscaping done, or already have it done, be aware of your lighting and notify the services to ensure it is not damaged.
