Watch: The Skinny on LED Lights (or Top 3 Reasons You Should Invest in LEDs this Summer)

LED copper path light - energy efficient and beautiful

A great example of the natural beauty of LED lights

Hello all – These “dog days of summer” have got me thinking about the high cost of summer enjoyment. What does it take for us to enjoy these summer days? Central air conditioning, for sure, but it comes with a high price tag via exorbitant utility bills. Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy your summer nights, by beautifying your home with outdoor lights, without it costing you an arm and leg? Good news: it is possible…with our LED lights.

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. Still want to learn more? I highly recommend this informative video from our national office: The Skinny on LEDs

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

ANN-001

LED 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.

Top 5 Ways We Can Help Your Garden to Glow This Summer

Its a new summer season, and that means there are new memories to be made, new sights to see, and new parties to throw. It also means a new summer focus for our blogs. Last year we had a lot of fun thinking through how we could help you to light up those “summer nights”, and this year we turn our attention to your yard and garden.

Let’s be honest – you spend a lot of time and money making your lawn and garden great. enjoy your garden at night with quality outdoor lightingSo, why should you spend any more than have to? But, also consider this – why should you just get to enjoy your investment during the daylight hours? Most of us spend most of our time at home during the evening hours, and we think you should be able to enjoy your yard investment whenever you want. Our lights will help you do this.

For the rest of the summer we are going to focus on how we, at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, can help  your yard and garden to really glow this summer season…and every season after.

Below is a quick preview: Our lights…

Every Garden Has Hidden Beauty Waiting To Be Uncovered with our lights

1. Bring out the hidden beauty of your yard at night. Most people aren’t aware that the evening hours offer a fresh and unique perspective of your garden. Yet, as this Gazebo picture shows, there are areas of hidden beauty in every garden at night just waiting to be uncovered. Summer nights offer the ideal opportunity to see your garden in a whole new light. Let us work hard to help you bring out the hidden beauty of your garden and see your yard in a whole new light this summer.

2. Make outdoor entertaining a breeze. Whether it be a cocktail party or a family picnic, our lights always help keep the party going. Quality outdoor lighting means that your guests don’t have to leave when evening comes; and, unlike other lesser lighting fixtures, we guarantee that our lights will always be beautiful, dependable, and versatile. This means you can rest assured that no matter the celebration, our lights will be there to help you make the most of any event you will ever host.

water feature lighting draws attention to the waterfall as the focal points of your yard

3. Highlight your favorite features of your yard. Nighttime is the ideal time to accent what you desire to be the focal point of your yard. Think about it this way – the evening offers you a black canvas to draw attention to your favorite parts of your lawn and garden. Like the artist Rembrandt, the original “painter of light”, we bring light into places where it does not exist, accenting the parts of your yard that you most want to highlight.

4. Bring greater safety and security to your yard. We all instinctively know that safety and security are priceless feelings. Our lights increase your yard’s safety with beautiful path lights, helping people know where to walk in your yard, hidden moon-lights illuminating the ground with a soft glow from above, and pool lights increasing visibility in your pools and water features. As for security, you and your family will breathe easier as our lights push back the darkness and illumine the dark spots of your yard.

5. Enhance Your Home’s Beauty Every Season. It seems like the spring leaves have only just arrived, and we know you want to savor every moment of this lush green haven. Whether it be the blazing colors of fall, or the beautiful blooms of spring, our experienced lighting professionals know how to design and install a lighting system that ensures your home will look beautiful each and every season. Our incredible warranty also guarantees that your home will keep looking great, night after night, season after season, year after year.

This is just a quick preview, and I look forward to unpacking the difference our lights can make for you lawn and garden this summer. And, when you are ready to see how we can help your garden to glow, please give us a call at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta / Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee / Athens.

It’s Spring (Cleaning) Time! (aka – Top 5 Reasons You Need our Annual Maintenance Plan)

flower lighting Augusta Lake Oconee GA

Spring is here! Do your lights need a quick refresh?

 

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

Service Plans for Outdoor Lighting

Let Us Spruce Up Your Lighting System This Spring

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. Now, 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.

Our LEDs Look Great, Longer
With an LED conversion, you get twice the warranty coverage – 2 yrs worth.

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

Our Reliable Service and Industry-leading Warranty Ensures that Your Lights Continue Look Great Night after Night, Year After Year

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 just 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 AMP this Spring. If you have any questions about pricing, or would like a free home consultation, call us at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta / Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee / Athens.

This is where we come in. Every year, our customers tell us how our lights provided their guests with a great renting experience. Here are two quick examples – Many of our customers love how our lights give them the ability to naturally extend their home’s living space into the garden and into the evening hours.

Top 3 Costs of Bad Commercial Lighting (and How we Can Help).

NASH-007

What does your place of business look like at night?

Most business owners know that the key to a successful business is reducing costs and increasing profits, while maintaining high-quality standards. Many companies spend mega-bucks to advertise the high-quality of their brand, products, or services. While many business owners strategically think through what their place of business (shop, office, restaurant, etc) says about them as a company, many neglect to consider how their place of business looks at night. No lighting, or worse, bad lighting, has an impact on their way your customers feel and experience your business brand. My thesis is simple – there is a high cost to bad commercial lighting…but we can help you fix that.

The top three high costs of bad commercial lighting (and how we can help).

ROA-008

Great outdoor lighting makes your customers feel safe while enhancing the beauty and appeal of your business property

1. Bad commercial lighting can make your customers feel less safe. This first point is rooted in common sense: when your business property is unlit or poorly lit, your customers feel less safe visiting your place of business at night. Even if your company does not have nighttime hours, evenings come pretty early for half the year (Look outside at 6:00 today and see what I mean). Regardless, it is safe to assume that when your customers feel less safe, they will visit your place of business less. Less customers typically means less sales, which means less revenue.  Many business owners have not considered the high cost that bad lighting can have on their bottom line.

Great commercial lighting not only makes your business look beautiful and appealing, it also helps your customers feel safer. When people feel comfortable, they are more likely to visit, stay longer, and give greater attention to the products and services you are offering. Our lights can help you create that beautiful, inviting, and secure environment you want for your customers and employees.

DNV-006

We can help your signage become an elegant landmark for thousands of people as they travel by every night.

2.  Bad commercial lighting means that your business goes unnoticed. I made this point last week, but I think it bears repeating – next time you are driving home at night, look around and see what gets your attention. Where is your eye drawn? What signs do you see? How many of those signs are familiar to you…how many do you use as landmarks on your travels? I think you get the point – darkness is the great equalizer of commercial real estate as all business are hidden from sight at night…except the ones that make an effort to stand out.

ROA-006

Great commercial outdoor lighting helps your business stand out at night

Great commercial lighting helps your business stand out at night. Because many commercial signs and buildings are not illuminated at night, the illuminated signs really stand out. The evening hours are a great marketing opportunity, and outdoor lighting can be a great marketing tool for your business. Remember, the key to successful advertising is consistency, and great commercial lighting makes your business stand out at night. With the right lighting, your signs and buildings can become a landmark for thousands of potential customers as they travel by every night.

Tim Charrier e0039c

Consider: how does outdoor lighting impact your impression of this building and the business brand it represents?

3. Bad commercial lighting damages your business brand. Successful companies spend lots of money to “curate their brand”, and know that bad press, negative reviews, or subpar products/services can hurt the image they are trying hard to build. What does bad lighting (“hot spots”, “dark patches”, harsh 110v floodlights) say about your business brand? Is this the message your want to send? Cheap lighting that is poorly designed, or lighting that works infrequently, is a problem. Harsh high voltage lighting can communicate a lack of style or elegance. Sloppy lighting can inadvertently send the wrong message about the business brand you have worked hard to build.

ROA-005

Our brand is ‘warm, elegant, and inviting’ and is why OLP is the business of choice for many of the CSRA’s premier commercial properties

On the other hand, great commercial lighting enhances your brand. Our signature style, our ‘brand’, is often described as ‘warm, elegant, and inviting’. This is why Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee is the commercial outdoor lighting company of choice for many of the premier hotels, restaurants, office buildings, medical practices, neighborhoods, golf courses, and stores in/across the CSRA. We have the experience, artistry, skills, and custom products to compliment and enhance the presence of your brand.

If you are ready to work with us to design a lighting design that will highlight the defining features your brand and business at night, or just have some questions you want to ask, 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 pics.

“Trees are your best antiques”  ~ Alexander Smith,19th cen Scottish Poet

It take a lighting professional to bring out the best in each and every tree

Our Lights Will Bring Out the Hidden Beauty of Your Trees at Night

Antiques are valuable because they simultaneously connect us to the past, present, and even the future. Antiques are our dearest heirlooms, and as such, they are meant to be preserved, displayed, and admired. Trees are our best antiques. There is something about a beautiful tree that makes us stop and admire the beauty of the world around us. A majestic towering tree reminds us of those who have gone before us and those who will come after. Trees also provide beauty to our homes, give us shade from the summer heat, and spread a sense of relaxation. Indeed, trees are our best antiques.

Isn’t a shame to only be able to admire trees in daytime? So much of our time at home is spent in the evening hours. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to enjoy our trees when we are at home most? Imagine sitting outside on a fall evening gazing at one of your trees as the sun sets and, at the perfect moment in the settling dusk, a soft light washes over your tree with an elegant glow. Later, as you turn off your bedroom lights, you stand by the window gazing outside and taking in the beauty of your the yard once more before you sleep. When done right, outdoor lighting not only extends your usable outdoor space, it also enhances your home.

Lighting Up Your Augusta Garden

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, we know how to enhance your home at night. Our outdoor lighting design team offers a high level of experience and artistry to help you determine the best type of outdoor lighting for your space. We know the right type of fixtures, the ideal angles, and the best techniques to achieve the most appealing look to compliment your house, outdoor space, and ornamental trees.

Down lighting your garden

Moon lighting mimics the soft glow of the moon

When thinking about tree lighting, there are two very different techniques to consider depending on the result you are trying to achieve. If you want to illuminate an ornamental tree with beautiful branches, such as a willow, oak, or palm tree, the best choice is “canopy-lighting”. With “canopy-lighting” we place a discrete, wide beam ground light in an optimal place to light up the trunk, crown, and canopy in a very elegant way. Another technique that we commonly use is called “moon lighting”. This method mimics the shadowing and light naturally given off by the moon. We carefully mount our custom light fixtures in the ideal places to cast light down through leaves and branches, giving a natural, soothing, and comfortable feel to your outdoor space.

Spend Your Nights Gazing at the Priceless Antiques You Never Knew You Had

Both of these lighting techniques produce amazing, yet unique results. If you love the trees in your yard, and are interested in highlighting their natural wonder, please call us at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta. If you want to know what your trees could look like at night, let us come out and give you a free demonstration. Soon you could be spending your nights gazing at the elegant antiques you never knew you had.
