Azaleas - A Sign of Tournament Time in Augusta

Azaleas – A Sign of Tournament Time in Augusta

I hope you are enjoying our recent weather warm-up. Recently, it has been so beautiful  that I have forgotten all about winter, taking solace in the fact that spring is just around the corner.

Azalea Effect - Where Your Guests Get A Warm Welcome Every Night

The Azalea Effect – Give Your Guests Get A Warm Welcome Every Night

I love springtime in Augusta. The explosion of leaves, animals and flowers is a sight to behold. Next month, the world will turn its gaze upon our fair city, as people from all over the globe travel here to attend our famous golf tournament. When the world looks at Augusta it sees images of perfectly groomed grass, elegantly trimmed trees, and beautiful azaleas in bloom each and every year. All of this combines to create what I call the ‘azalea effect’ –  when people see Augusta, they see something that is beautiful and elegant, yet subtle and understated. In Augusta, people see something that just looks right.

Here Today, Here Tomorrow, Here When You Need Us

Our Reliable Service Ensures that Your Lights Continue Look Great Year After Year

For Over 15 Years, Our Reliable Service has Ensured that Your Lights Continue to Work Right Each Night, Helping Your Home Look its Very Best

Lately, I have been thinking about the phrase – “here today, gone tomorrow.” This popular cliche describes many fleeting things in our world – pop music stars, internet memes, start-up businesses, and so on. It does not, however, describe our company.

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee we promise to be here today and here tomorrow as well. For 15 years, we have stood behind that promise and made it our aim to be here for you, faithfully serving the CSRA since 1999.

We promise to be here or you…

If you or your guests have any issues with your lighting system during Masters Week, call us and we will be there right away to make your lights look and work right again.

Next Year – Every spring our schedule is filled with new installations for new customers, annual maintenance plans for our existing customers, and even non-OLP lighting system repairs for our competitors’ customers.  This last category constitutes a growing part of our business every year. Outdoor lighting is a significant investment (that can pay beautiful dividends), yet many people don’t think about servicing their system in the years to come. But, this is the biggest problem with ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ lighting companies – unreliable service. A landscaper or amateur lighting guy may offer a lower installation price, but consider the long-term costs of unreliable service. Outdoor lighting is all we do and we will aim to do it right. When you use us, you can rest easy knowing that your lights will be shining every night, year after year.

 

We Guarantee that your Guests will Enjoy a 'Deep Breath' Outdoor Atmosphere During Masters Week

This means that when you buy one of our lighting systems, you know that you are getting a guarantee that is worth something. We will be here for you when you need us. That peace of mind is priceless.

As our outdoor lighting competitors come and go in the CSRA, we remain.

To LED or Not To LED? That is the Question…

LED copper path light - energy efficient and beautiful

A great example of the natural beauty of LED lights

 

Hello all – I recently saw an article on Fox News that caught my attention. It is entitled: “LEDs turn out the light on incandescents and CFLs“. This is a great (and non-biased) article that highlights the benefits of LED lights above incandescent lights. I highly recommend reading this article and considering the pro-LED argument it makes.

My experiences with skeptical customers have taught me that some people are skittish about LED bulbs, assuming that all LEDs give off a harsh, artificial, or blueish light (like car headlights), lending to an unnatural look and feel. I admit that, sadly, some LEDs do look unnatural, but I also know that the vast majority of those lights utilize a cheap low quality LED bulb.

A Riddle - Which Set of Outdoor Lights is Halogen and which is LED?

Can you tell which set of outdoor lights is halogen and which is LED? No?! Exactly my point…

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, we only use LED lights with Cree-chip technology which, as the article above states, is one of the highest quality LED bulbs available on the market today. Need more proof? Look at the pictures in this blog – our LED lights give off the same color temperature and effect that people love from our halogen bulbs. The Cree bulbs we use register very well of the CRI-scale (Color Rendering Index), meaning that all of our lights will deliver a natural glow, giving your house our signature warm, inviting, and elegant look. 

BONUS – not only do they look great, but our LEDs maximize your lighting investment by saving you money in 3 primary ways…

ANN-001

LEDs conversion = More lights, more beauty, more security, & more savings! What a deal!

1. Our LED bulbs are more efficient. Our LEDs use 85% less energy than their standard halogen counterparts, which translates into an 85% cavings on your energy bill.  This means that you can run your lights as long as you want without worrying about the cost. Higher efficiency means that you will save some of your hard-earned green while being green and helping the environment.

2. Our LEDs Are Warrantied Twice as Long. We already have the best warranty in business, and using our LEDs only makes our guarantee even better. With LED bulbs, or an LED conversion, we  warranty your bulbs for twice as long as our standard halogen bulbs (2 yrs on all LED bulbs), giving you the peace of mind, and extended enjoyment, that comes standard with the best warranty in the business. 

3.  Our LEDs are able to be retrofitted into your existing lighting system. While some lighting companies try to sell your whole new LED-specific fixtures, our bulbs are able to be retrofitted into all of our fixtures. This means you can make an LED conversion without buying a whole new lighting system. This is an great formula: LEDs conversion = More lights, more beauty, more security, & more savings!

Sit Down and Breathe Deep Enjoy Our Deck & Moon Lighting Combo

Want to enjoy your lighting investment more? LEDs allow you to run your lights 2x as long with 85% more savings.

Ok, so how do you get LED bulbs? For the reasons listed above, some of our customers choose to initially install an LED system, while others choose to upgrade to LED bulbs during their Annual Maintenance Plans (AMP).  Since our LEDs use so much less energy than their halogen counterparts, an upgrade pays for itself over time…

So, call us if you would like to learn more about the benefits of an LED conversion for your Annual Maintenance Plan. If you are convinced about the benefits of an LED retrofit, or just have some more questions, you can reach us at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta / Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee / Athens.  If you would like some more examples of our work, you can also visit our website to look through some of our favorite Augusta outdoor lighting photos.

5 Reasons to Purchase a Service Plan This Spring

 

Well, its official – Spring is here! You know what that means – its time for warmer weather, fresh blooms, and…spring cleaning.

Service Plans for Outdoor Lighting

Let Us Spruce Up Your Lighting System This Spring

Some people dread spring cleaning, but I kinda like it. Whether it be my house, my trucks, my yard…I like to spruce things up. I like to take a little time to make my stuff look like new again. A little bit of hard work often can make a big difference.

How do your outdoor lights look lately? Do they look as good as when they were first installed? Truth is, every outdoor lighting system will eventually need servicing. Yes, our systems need less maintenance than most because we install it right the first time. But, your yard is (literally) a living and breathing thing. Whether you plan for it or not, your yard will change over time. You need a lighting system that can change with it. You need a lighting company you can count on. Don’t worry, we can help. I’ll give you 5 reasons why you should let us spruce up your lighting system with our Annual Maintenance Plan this spring.

When you purchase an Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP) with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee you get the benefit of…

 1. Refreshing Your Lighting System– When you purchase an AMP from us, we will come out and make your outdoor lighting system look and work like new again. Not only will we change all of your bulbs, but we will also troubleshoot any other issues your system might be experiencing – we will clean your fixtures, repair broken fixtures, and re-bury any exposed wire. We will also re-evaluate your lighting design and reposition lights to account for any changes to your house or additions to your yard. We even trim trees and shrubbery to ensure that your property is receiving the optimal lighting effect.

An LED Upgrade Keeps Your House Looking Just as Good for Twice as Long with 80% Less Energy

 2. Extending Your Warranty – When you purchase our AMP, we will extend your bulb warranty for an additional year, or an additional 2 years for an LED upgrade (see below). If you keep continuous service coverage with us after installation, we will even continue to cover your fixtures and transformers beyond their original warranties. We easily have the best warranty in the business and this means no service charges, no bulbs out, and most important to you – no fuss.

3. Upgrading to LED – When you purchase an AMP, it is the perfect time to consider upgrading to LED bulbs. LED technology has developed to the point where it meets our high standards and expectations. Our LED bulbs utilize the new CRI (Color Rendering Index) technology to ensure a soft, natural light while using less energy. LEDs typically use 80% less energy than their halogen counterparts, which means that an upgrade pays for itself over time. All of our light fixtures are able to be retrofitted to LED, and doing so doubles your warranty to 2 years on each LED bulb.

Our Annual Maintenance Plan Helps Your Home Shine for Masters Week

4. Adding-on (at a Discount) – For the next 3 months, we are running a spring special – When you schedule an AMP we will give you 5% off any add-on to your lighting system. This limited-time discount includes any light fixtures, transformers, timer system upgrades, or light switches you decide to add.

5. Repairing A Non-OLP System – While we wish that everyone used our lights, some people decide to go elsewhere. Whether they install their own lights, or use a competitor, we often get calls from homeowners who need us to come in and fix their lighting system. While many of these people are initially unhappy they have to call us, most are glad they did in the end. Many of these new customers tell us how their lighting system ‘looks better than ever’ after we service it. We love that.

Are you renting for Master’s? Having a party soon? Just got spring (cleaning) fever? Let us make your lighting system look and work like new again with an Annual Maintenance Plan this spring. If you have any questions about pricing, or would like a free home consultation, call us at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee.
