The age old adage is certainly well known for a reason. While it sounds good to get replacement bulbs for your outdoor lights from your local big box store and swap them out yourself, we want to warn you there maybe some hidden costs and surprises. We hate to see our customers suffer from unforeseen problems and hassles down the road. We want what is best for our customers and are fine if you do change your own bulbs but share the following advice.
More is More
With our replacement bulbs you are getting top quality outdoor light bulbs that you just can’t buy at your local big box store. While you can drive to your local Lowe’s and pick up a similar looking bulb for your outdoor lighting fixture for a lower price, the quality is just not the same. Our bulbs come with a 1 year warranty and on average last 1.5 years. The bulbs from the big box store last much less time than ours and offer no warranty. We’d hate to see you having to replace your bulbs so frequently and with no warranty coverage and in the end spending more.
Other Bulbs Can Damage Your Fixtures
Another way the big box bulbs can actually end up costing you is by causing damage to your fixtures. If you get the wrong bulb for your fixture it can run too hot and melt the inside of the fixture. This will not only ruin your light fixture, but it will also void the warranty for the entire light. We understand some customers want to replace their own bulbs but we recommend they call us and let us help them with the details of a safe bulb. Our customers are everything to us. We care about you and would hate to see you have to not only buy another replacement bulb, but a replacement fixture as well.
Save Yourself the Headaches with a System Checkup
We do believe the Outdoor Lighting Perspectives annual maintenance plan is a good way to keep your outdoor lighting system running in tip top shape. This annual maintenance plan includes
- changing all bulbs

A lot can happen in a year, your landscaping can mature, you may have had to excavate near a light to make a home repair or maybe the kids knocked over a light. With our annual maintenance plan we’ll make all adjustments and repairs to keep your outdoor lighting system in great working order. The best part is, you don’t have to do a thing.
