With the days getting noticeably shorter, outdoor lighting is becoming even more important for homeowners. If your lights are not as bright as they could be — or they are not turning on at all — you might need landscape lighting repair services. There are many potential reasons for performance issues with your outdoor lighting fixtures. In this blog, we will discuss three common reasons that your lights may not work correctly, and why you should hire professionals for landscape lighting repair.
Check Your Lighting Timer
In the coming weeks, you may notice that your lights are not turning on when they usually do. If your lights are not turning on until it is already pitch black outside, your lighting timer may be the culprit. A timer that is set to turn the lights on at dusk in the summer will likely have to be adjusted for the fall and winter months. If you are having trouble operating your timer, contact the lighting experts at Sposato Irrigation. In addition to landscape lighting repair, our professionals also offer installation and design services. A smart lighting timer may be the perfect solution!
As with any other electrically-powered unit, lighting fixtures can become unplugged or have faulty connections. If your lights are not turning on, check all of the connections between individual lights, your transformer, and any outlets you may use. Because outdoor lighting is exposed to the elements, you should use extreme caution when checking connections and inspecting wires.
One of the most insidious causes of malfunctioning landscape lighting is damaged components. Bulbs, cords, and other parts are exposed to moisture, heat, insects, and more. This can cause corrosion, stripped wiring, and electrical shorts that impede the function of your light fixtures. If you suspect that damaged parts are the cause of your lighting malfunction, it is essential that you contact a professional to work on your lighting system. Damaged electrical equipment can be dangerous to handle, so it is vital to obtain the services of someone experienced in landscape lighting repair.
The Importance of Professional Help
When it comes to electrical infrastructure, using professional services is essential. Not only is it safer, but it can also be more cost-effective. A well-intentioned homeowner can easily damage a lighting system beyond repair while trying to fix it.
