3 Ways an LED Conversion Maximizes Your Lighting Investment

ANN-033-retouched

These winter days are longer, which gives our lights a chance to really shine. Keep reading to learn why you can run our lights longer with confidence.

So, its snowing in Augusta. I hope today finds you inside your home, staying nice and warm. I also hope you and your family get a chance to get out and enjoy this snow.

The chance to enjoy snow is rare around these parts. In the south, snow is something we only occasionally enjoy, when the conditions are just right. It is fine to occasionally enjoy snow, but not your lights. You’ve invested in your lights and you should enjoy them regularly.

Here in the dead of winter the days are longer, which means that our lights have a chance to really shine. As of late, one of our most popular services is an LED conversion, done during an Annual Maintenance Plan service. LED conversion has become so popular because most of our customers realize that this the ideal time of year to keep your lights running longer, and they see how our LEDs help them maximize their lighting investment in (at least) 3 primary ways.

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

Click here for a full sized pic – see if you can tell which one is halogen and which is LED…

1. Our LEDs Look Great – Some people have experienced LEDs that give off an unappealing or artificial color light (think of car headlights). Sadly, some LEDs do look unnatural, but most of those lights utilize a cheap low quality bulb. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, we only use LED lights with Cree-chip technology, which is the highest quality LED bulb available on the market today. As you can see in the pictures, our LED lights give off the same color temperature and effect that people love in our halogen bulbs. The Cree bulbs we use register very well of the CRI-scale (Color Rendering Index), proving that all of our lights will deliver a natural glow, giving your house our signature warm, inviting, and elegant look.

*Need more proof? Look at the picture above. Can’t tell a difference? Exactly my point..

2. Our LEDs Last Longer – LEDs also maximize your lighting investment by increasing the longevity of your lighting system. Our LED bulbs are able to be retrofitted into all of our fixtures and are rated for twice as many hours as their halogen counterparts.  With a LED conversion, we also warranty your bulbs for twice as long as our standard bulbs (2 yrs on all LED bulbs), giving you the peace of mind that comes with the best warranty in the business.

Our LEDs are 85% more efficient than their halogen counterparts, meaning you’ll enjoy their beauty longer while also saving money. Now, that’s a great deal.

3. Our LEDs Save Money – Last, but certainly not least, LEDs save you money each and every night you run them. Some people wrongly assume that the up-front costs of LED lighting will eliminate any savings LED lights might bring. But, this is not true. Since LED lights are 85% more efficient than standard halogen bulbs, you will quickly notice a savings on your utility bills. 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 also being green and helping conserve energy and the environment.

For the reasons listed above, many of our customers choose to upgrade to LED bulbs during their Annual Maintenance Plans (AMP), and since LEDs use so much less energy than their halogen counterparts, an upgrade pays for itself over time.

Please call us if you would like to learn more about the benefits of an LED conversion during your Annual Maintenance Plan.

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.

 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.

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.
