Whether the lights outside your home are functional or part of the décor, they are one of the most powerful parts of the electrical system. Because of the high amounts of energy these lights use, they sometimes malfunction and require repairs.

3 Things to Consider for Outdoor Lighting Repair
- Don’t handle the work yourself: Fixing issues with outdoor lighting is rarely as simple as replacing a 60 watt light bulb. Not only are the lights more complex, require careful voltage matching, and have special shielding from the weather, but their repair issues are often concerned with wiring that is buried in the ground: you shouldn’t try to dig down into your property to find the where the wiring trouble is. There’s also the issue of appearance: doing repair work yourself without an eye toward the design and the look of your home’s exterior can end up creating an eyesore. Outdoor and landscape lighting specialists should take on this job.
- Replace older lights with low-voltage lights: If you haven’t had new outdoor lighting put in during the last decade, take the opportunity during repairs to have technicians install low-voltage LED lights. These lights will maintain the proper illumination level that you want with but will consume much less energy. You can expect to cut down on your electricity bill significantly with these new lights.
- Service panel upgrade: Here is another good choice for older lighting systems. Replacing the older service panel that runs the lights will make the system more efficient and less likely to experience overloads from upgrading other parts of the lighting system.
You should always keep in mind the possibility of doing a full redesign for your home’s lighting if it needs frequent repairs or is greater than 10 years old. This will give you a more attractive outside and let you take advantage of recreational areas long after the sun goes down. Improved lighting will also make your home safer and more secure.
