Let’s say you already have lights – your system may benefit from a landscape lighting repair or upgrade. How long ago was your lighting installed? If the system has been in place for more than a few years, it may have been built with incandescent or halogen fixtures, both of which burn out frequently, attract insects, pose fire hazards and run up your electricity bill (read about the best alternative solution here).
Perhaps the surrounding landscape has matured into a gorgeous display, but the lighting scheme was designed for a younger landscape, resulting in an underwhelming effect. You may even be experiencing some operational issues with the system due to its age in which case it would require a landscape lighting repair.
The above mentioned issues are common with older lighting systems. However, the good news is that a good lighting designer can address and fix these problems – often at a surprisingly affordable price.
Converting Older Systems to LED is a Viable Option
Many homeowners do not realize that in addition to installing new systems, they can convert professional-grade lighting systems from halogen or incandescent lighting to LED. This conversion allows you add more lighting without the need for an additional costly transformer.
Some customers have told us that other contractors arbitrarily tell them that the best option is to conduct a landscape lighting repair or even build a new outdoor lighting system from scratch. While we agree that there are certain reasons to start over, in many cases the system can be salvaged.
Can My Existing System be Upgraded or Rehabilitated?
Of course, there is no need to tear down and rebuild quality lighting systems that were made to last. A good rule of thumb is to replace fixtures or rebuild the system or conduct a landscape lighting repair if the LED lamps’ lifespan will outlive the fixture or system on which it is placed.
On the other hand, fixtures that are in excellent condition and have 10 years or more worth of life left in them can be converted to LED, which significantly cuts down the cost.
