With the right outdoor lighting installation, you can count on several things. You can rest easy that your home is safer and more secure; that when your guests come over, there are no visibility issues for them in getting to your front door; and the best features of your home are seen during the day or night. With landscape lighting, professional outdoor lighting installation makes all the difference.
When Considering the Installation Process
Before you make that yard-altering purchase, make sure the team you choose for the job knows what they’re doing. At NTX Outdoor Lighting, we take several important factors into account. We consider the weather patterns we can commonly expect here in DFW, the difficult Texas soil to make sure your fixtures stay put, and we assess the landscape you already have. This ensures that whatever gets placed outside your home will be the right fit for the area.
One of our other considerations for our customers’ landscape lighting installation is the durability of the product they want. We will never settle for less than the top-quality when it comes to lighting fixtures. We will always communicate openly with the customer to make certain they’re getting a product that is long-lasting and durable. And this durability doesn’t mean compromising on style; many of our products are incredibly strong and simultaneously create a beautiful atmosphere.
In short, when you are looking for a team to tackle your outdoor lighting installation and repair, choose a business that is knowledgeable on both your lawn and on the products you’re considering. Landscape lighting installation is a long-lasting job, so you want to make sure it’s done right.
Landscape Lighting Wire Installation
When it comes to installing the wiring for a landscape lighting system, you should trust the professionals at NTX Outdoor Lighting to tackle the job in the right manner. Our highly trained technicians can work around your pre-existing landscape, only moving shrubbery and other installations when absolutely necessary. To successfully wire your new lighting system, we must design the entire system to flow smoothly, with no breaks in the wiring or points where kinks can form. The wiring is installed underground, so it must be durable and buried well to avoid prying animals or extreme weather conditions.
Our expert technicians have been doing this a long time, so we know how to correctly install wiring to ensure maximum efficiency for your outdoor lighting system. We plan carefully before the project truly begins.
Landscape Lighting Installation Cost
The cost of having brand new landscape lighting systems installed around your home can vary widely. A few factors that play a part include the size of your landscape, the type of system you would like (LED or standard), and the manpower required. When you call NTX Outdoor Lighting, our technician will visit your home and go over the entire plan with you, examining each area where outdoor lighting will be installed. Once the walkthrough is complete, we can offer a comprehensive estimate of the whole job, so you know exactly how much it will cost.
Low Voltage Landscape Lighting
When it comes to residential lighting, most homeowners want to save money. They try to balance good aesthetics with low prices. At NTX Outdoor Lighting, we have good news: low-voltage landscape lighting is an efficient way to light your yard without breaking the bank.
With low-voltage lighting, homeowners will use less energy each month — and will have lower energy bills as a result. You can choose from a variety of styles, so you won’t have to sacrifice on your home’s appearance. Furthermore, low-voltage lighting will help your home stand apart from the rest of the neighborhood, increasing its value. Contact NTX Outdoor Lighting today to take advantage of low-voltage lighting’s many benefits before winter!
Is landscape lighting something I can do myself?
While a low-voltage lighting system may be installed by a non-professional, it is still not advisable. When the homeowner wants the process done correctly, it is best to hire an expert technician who works in the lighting industry. When dealing with high-voltage systems, always bring in an electrician for the job. You need someone who understands the design process and the math behind a landscape lighting system, as well as a company who may provide the correct lighting for your needs.
At NTX Outdoor Lighting, we hire only professionals with the proper training and equipment for the job, and we carry all the lighting fixtures and wiring necessary for any residential property. We would hate to see a homeowner who was trying to cut corners injure themselves due to electric shock or cost themselves more money by incorrectly installing a landscape lighting system. With such an intricate system, it is best to allow professional installation experts handle the process.
Why are landscape lights not typically 120 volts?
In the world of landscape lighting systems, there are two common types of residential landscape lighting in use: low-voltage 12V and high-voltage 120V. 12 volt tends to be the most popular, as it is easier to install, less expensive, and safer for everyone. Low-voltage lighting also significantly decreases the chance of being shocked. In many cases, the cable does not even need to be installed underground, though it may be advisable to do so anyway to avoid pesky animals or extreme weather conditions.
120 volt has a few extra requirements when compared to 12 volts. For example, the connections must be waterproof, which can be a shock hazard to install. The cable is buried 18” deep, minimum. The system also tends to be more expensive in the long run. 12 volt, on the other hand, is safe to use in wet conditions and features a less disruptive installation process, and the cables do not require a conduit to utilize successfully.
Do most people run the low-voltage lights all night?
When the sun goes down, having low-voltage landscape lighting in your yard can be an efficient way to scare away potential intruders or pesky animals looking for a midnight snack. In fact, most homeowners tend to leave their lighting system running at all hours of the night. For many, the whole point of having such a system is a sense of security at home. No one wants to risk a break-in, though it does happen more than many would like to believe. To deter intruders, leave your lighting system on throughout the night.
A reasonably priced system, especially a LED system, is quite cost-efficient, and you can save significantly on energy each month. A landscape lighting system is an investment in the security, safety, and appearance of your home and yard. Give NTX Outdoor Lighting a call today to see how we may help you.
