As the leaves begin to fall and the days begin to shorten, make sure that your lighting system is up to date with some outdoor lighting maintenance tips. By following these tips, you can be sure that your lighting system keeps burning brightly for years to come!
Throughout the course of a year, some halogen bulbs will burn out and will need to be replaced. Replacing burnt out bulbs will keep the outdoor lighting system in full working order so that you, the homeowner will continue to get the most out of your lighting system.
It is also important to keep the lenses of the lights clean as rain and dirt can easily accumulate and dim the lighting in a system. Simply keeping the lenses of an outdoor system clean is a simple outdoor lighting maintenance tip that can make a tremendous improvement in the brightness of the system at night.
Also important in maintaining an outdoor lighting system is maintaining the angle of the fixtures. Wind, hail and even rain can unfortunately shift lighting fixtures and shine the light in incorrect places. By repositioning light fixtures, the lighting system will be shining as designed and will keep your property looking great and will keep it safe. Simply testing the entire system will also make sure that it is working to its fullest potential. Wires can get cut from landscaping crews or animals can chew through them. If this happens, entire portions of the system may not work.
Some of these outdoor lighting maintenance tips are relatively easy to perform. While others need to be handled by a professional, which is why McKay provides the option of an annual service agreement. Once per year, a McKay service technician will change all of the bulbs on your property with our specially ordered halogen bulbs. This will ensure that the system will burn brightly night after night, but if a bulb does burn out in the span of a year, McKay will replace that bulb free of charge. McKay's service technician will also clean dirty lenses and will test the entire system to make sure that the property is lit to its fullest potential even many years after the original installation.
