beautiful Outdoor Lighting Perspectives design plan.

Remember that feeling of love at 1st sight the first evening you enjoyed your outdoor lighting system?

Do you remember how you felt the first time you saw your home, outdoor living spaces and landscape lit up after the professionals at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio  installed your system?  The effect was dramatic and chances are it made you fall  in love with your home and landscape all over again. Do you look at your outdoor lighting now and think it just doesn’t look as bright and beautiful as it did that first season? That may be true.  Although our halogen lights do have an average life of 5,000 hours, they will begin to dim slowly and you may not notice the change over time. Maintaining your  halogen outdoor lighting system involves more than just keeping it looking its best. It also keeps your system running safely night after night.

Even though our fixtures are designed to be low-maintenance, small adjustments may be necessary to get your outdoor lighting system back to its best;  back to operating at their full potential.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio offers easy options for your existing halogen outdoor lighting system:

  • First and foremost, it is important to make sure that recent storms, birds or children have not covered your outdoor lighting fixtures with mulch, leaves or anything else that can keep the heat produced from the bulbs from escaping. The lighting fixtures need to be kept free from debris that can accumulate. This will ensure safe operation of your system.
  • lens-covers-large

    Installing lens covers will keep out leaves and other debris to keep your system running safer and more efficiently.

    Installing our cost-effective optional lens covers is a great way to keep debris out.  Outdoor Lighting Perspectives plastic and glass lens covers help keep the debris from covering the bulb or from insects making nests inside the fixture.  They are easy to install and do not affect the color of the lighting.  Lens covers are a much more cost-effective than replacing a fixture due to malfunctions from obstructions.

  • San Antonio outdoor lighting maintenance

    We make sure all fixtures are correctly in place each visit as part of our maintenance program.

    Going green with LED lighting is a superb option for your system.  Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio’s LED lighting technology provides an 80% energy savings just by switching to our LED systems. Our LED bulbs, which can be retrofitted in ours and other systems, have a rated life of 50,000 hours, or an average life of 19 years. The color and illumination are undistinguishable from traditional halogen lights and many homeowners agree they prefer the LED over the halogen from an aesthetic standpoint!

  • The best way to keep your system looking and performing at it’s best  is to give us a call at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio to sign up for our thorough Annual Maintenance Plan. With this plan, we will come to your house and replace all light bulbs, repair any damaged wire, straighten fixtures, inspect the transformer, reset or check the timer, trim or adjust for plant overgrowth, and perform simple changes to enhance the effects of your lighting. Throughout the year, you receive priority response and repairs with no service charge. Your lighting system  will remain headache-free and operating beautifully.

San Antonio TX outdoor lighting

Our beneficial outdoor lighting is the New Year’s resolution that is easy to keep!

We are now well into the New Year and have put away the reminders of the holidays and are on our way to improving our lifestyles, our habits and our homes. Many of the resolutions that we made in honor of the New Year may have already came to a screeching halt and many of you may already be feeling the benefits of living a healthier lifestyle. No matter which is the case, the reality of making a change or improvement that is easily attainable is on the minds of many San Antonio homeowners and many of these encompass improving our homes and landscapes.

Our landscape lighting can help you achieve your own tropical paradise.

Improving the aesthetic of your home and landscape is easier than you may think. By simply adding a professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting you can increase the safety, security and curb appeal of your home and property dramatically. Here is a glimpse at just a few of the many ways you can gain the most benefit at your residence…

  • Safety – Outdoor lighting adds safety to your home and landscape in a variety of ways. Lighting walkways and paths ensures your guests are able to navigate these areas safely. This includes making paths you frequent within the landscape other than just the front sidewalks visible as well, such as paths that lead to outdoor spaces like pools, patios and other recreational areas. You can also increase safety and beauty through zone lighting. Zone lighting is used to illuminate areas of your yard and landscape for nighttime use. For example, when you spend time outdoors with family and friends, you’ll need adequate outdoor lighting to illuminate your landscape areas. Zone lighting is an effective way to light a patio, deck, garden, pool area or outdoor seating area. For enhanced safety we also suggest illuminating sidewalks, driveways, garages and entryways to keep your landscape safe after dark

A well-lit home is a safer home.

  • Peace of Mind – A well-lit landscape and home promotes a feeling of security, alertness and proof you care about maintaining your property. When you keep your outdoor areas illuminated, you present a feeling of  involvement and pride in your home. Outdoor lighting reduces the dark areas present around your home and promotes  a sense that your are aware of your surroundings, this helps deter would-be criminals from trespassing onto your property. Outdoor lighting can maintain your peace of mind as a homeowner in knowing you are adding another layer of security to your home.
  • Beauty  – The beauty that outdoor lighting provides is reason enough to celebrate year round! A professional outdoor lighting design encompasses all the power of curb appeal by beautifying your home and landscape, and can even change your mood.
Outdoor lighting San Antonio

A well-lit home exudes with a sense that the homeowner takes pride and is aware of his/her surroundings.

  • LED Outdoor Lighting – Over half of our outdoor lighting installations here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio and the Hill Country are LED. LED outdoor lighting is more energy-efficient and leaves less of an impact on the environment than other types of outdoor lighting.  It can save a homeowner thousands in energy costs over the LED’s lifetime. In addition, since they contain no glass components, they are not vulnerable to vibration or breakage like conventional bulbs and make the perfect lighting for outdoor applications. LED lights are also free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent bulbs contain a multitude of materials such as mercury that are dangerous for the environment and make disposal dangerous. The absence of these materials will help you reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. LED is safer in many regards too, because it generates light from cool burning technology, and it uses less wire to install properly.

LED outdoor lighting is changing the way we view outdoor lighting.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio  holiday lighting

It is not too late to make this Christmas the most magical ever!

Just this past week, as I was sitting in traffic and playing the “hurry-up-and-wait” game we all find ourselves participating in this time of year, I noticed a sign hammered into the ground right at the intersection that read “Will hang Christmas lights cheap.”  That was it, the single line of text, followed by a local phone number underneath. My mind  began to drift to images of what a “cheap” holiday lighting installation would look like, or if it would even illuminate. I then quickly surmised, than like all products and services promoted as being “cheap”, you usually get what you pay for. With that conclusion, I then began to think of all the ways we are able to provide beautiful, professionally appointed holiday lighting to homeowners and business owners in the San Antonio area, even on a budget!

Outdoor lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio

Our outdoor lighting brings this home to life in the evening.

The front of your home and especially your home’s front entrance is one of the most frequented areas of your property. We are moving into the season where a dark front entrance can not only be a safety hazard, it also fails to promote a warm, inviting atmosphere. This is very important  as we move into the time of year when more guests will  be coming to call. The fundamentals of creating a warm and welcoming entrance at your humble abode begin with three key elements.  These elements are often used when creating a more inviting home and landscape for other genres of home beautification. We use these same key strategies when adding professional lighting to your home as well.

The three dynamics of proper outdoor lighting to promote curb appeal include:

  • The Vehicular Experience – This dynamic serves as the first impression for those who pass your home in the evening and guests who pull into the driveway. Proper outdoor lighting will improve the overall aesthetic impact of your home starting the moment your home becomes visible. The vehicular experience can be enhanced by landscape lighting, architectural and facade lighting.
San Antonio TX outdoor lighting

The outdoor lighting at this home adds loads of curb appeal from the street!

  • The Pedestrian Experience – Once you have made a lasting impression to those that enter onto your property, the next step is promoting a safe and beautiful trip to your front door. The best way to ensure these key elements are met with your outdoor lighting design is to add pathway lighting. Our pathway lighting consists of using soft washes of light to gently illuminate your walkways, sidewalks and paths that lead your guests from the driveway or parking area of your property to the front door.

This homes entrance is lined with native palms, we were able to add soft washes of strategically planned lighting to not only light the driveway but focus on the beauty of the palms as well.

  • The Entry Experience – What makes an outdoor lighting design exceptional is how it greets people through a series of experiences. The culmination of these experiences reach a fever pitch as your guests make their way to your front door. The front door is the most important part of your home’s front facade.Every decision made should be considered for its support and accent; this includes the addition of focal point lighting, architectural lighting and even porch lighting.   If there are steps up to this entry-level, make sure they are properly illuminated.
Outdoor lighting San Antonio

Path lighting and entry lighting provide a secure entrance to the heart of this San Antonio home.

A professional outdoor lighting design encompasses all the power of curb appeal and can even change your mood. When you look at your home at night do you notice the lighting fixture or the illumination it exudes? Many homeowners think professional outdoor lighting is beyond their reach; this is certainly not the case. We can properly light your home’s exterior, including your home’s entrance, and landscape on a budget. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio and the Hill Country can complete your outdoor lighting design in phases that will accommodate your needs and budget as well.  Just as the old saying goes “you get what you pay for”, our lights will endure the test of time and will last for many years to come.
