House & Landscape Lighting Basics
DIY or Hire a Pro?
Homeowners could put in a simple Lighting System in a weekend. However, for the most stunning effects and utilization of the available light, go with a landscape lighting specialist familiar with the various fixture types and ways to arrange them.
How Much Does it Cost to Install Outdoor Lighting?
Individual fixtures vary in price and can start around $75. Cable runs will also vary in price based on cable durability/gauge, and a transformer can be had for about $200.
How Much Maintenance is Required?
Maintenance is often minimal and simple when dealing with modern led lighting fixtures. Start by keeping fixtures free of leaves and debris to prevent them from overheating. Replace burned-out bulbs as soon as possible so that others on the circuit aren't subject to voltage spikes and irregular voltage.
How Long Do Lighting Fixtures Last?
Warranties on fixtures and transformers range from one to 10 years, but fixtures made of brass, copper, or stainless steel should not cause issues in the long run.
