Landscape lighting is one of the best & most popular ways to enhance the beauty of your property. But how do you select quality landscape lighting? Simply contact American Electrical Contracting for products that look & work great, years after installation and are backed by a lifetime warranty. Here are the key things you need to consider when selecting landscape lighting.
What kind of lighting do you want?
* Low voltage – Low voltage lighting runs on only 12 volts produced by a transformer. Therefore, one of the important factors is reliable transformers, like those installed by American Electrical. Low voltage lighting does not consume much power.
* Line voltage – When installing these lights, we put them on their own circuit. Line voltage landscape lights can be used to light up large or small areas with a few or many fixtures. They consume more power but new technology like LED (Light Emitting Diode) and other low voltage bulbs make this type of landscape lighting practical.
* Solar – No electrician is required for solar landscape lights. They come in many colors and are attractive but in many cases they are only decorative and currently do not produce very usable light. If they are coupled with storage batteries, the batteries could become an issue, time will tell. Both low & line voltage lights are practical & make great pathway lighting.
Now that you know the basics, you have to select what suites your taste, lighting requirements and budget. Layout, spacing, lighting angles & the right bulbs are important factors to optimize your installation. Contact American Electrical Contracting, Inc. for all of your outdoor & indoor lighting needs. We also install landscape lighting for commercial applications
