We love life in beautiful Austin where we have some of the most unique landscape in the country. From the Dessert Willow and the Bald Cypress to the Texas Sage, our trees, plants, and brush are exceptional.
We experience just about every kind of weather from the ninety degree temperatures of summer to the low forties of the cool yet mild winters. The climate is subtropical with prevailing southerly winds and the sun shines nearly 300 days out of each year. Yet we also experience higher amounts of rainfall and flooding than other parts of the state.
If you’re a business owner or own a home In the Austin area, you may realize that if you want to add beauty and value to your property you should consider adding professionally designed LED Landscape Lighting. Not only will this type of lighting make the property stand out and shine, but it will add security and safety to your residence or business.
However, the fixtures and equipment you choose needs to be able to withstand the heat, rain, and changing weather in South Texas. While many people love to work on DIY projects, here are three great reasons why it’s imperative to hire a Professional Lighting Design team when planning to light your home or business instead of taking this on DIY style.
- Professional designer/installers use only commercial grade equipment
The fixtures and equipment we use when we install lighting at Elite Lighting Design will outlast anything you can purchase at a hardware or big box store. We have access to the best American made fixtures and drivers on the market and at the most cost-effective prices that we can pass on to our customers. We work directly with American manufacturers that offer top of the line equipment and every fixture carries a 20-year factory warranty. The transformers, wiring, and equipment we utilize, when installed our way, ensure that the systems will last through all seasons and weather events. Most LED fixtures being sold at box stores are of inferior quality and are sensitive to heat and humidity. All of our equipment is specifically made for LED with arching and heat and humidity prevention. Each fixture and transformer have a built-in surge protector, so they run 40% cooler than comparable equipment. Our equipment will stand up in any weather condition Austin and South Texas may experience and save you on the power bill.
- Professional installation assures safety and beauty
It’s true that LED low wattage lighting doesn’t require the expertise of an electrician, but it does take the knowledge of a trained professional to properly wire those fixtures. When you hire the pros at Elite Lighting Design to install LED lighting at your home or business, you can rest assured that all of the wires will be run correctly and buried out of site. You and your family and guests won’t trip over loose wires or step on bulging plugs or transformer boxes. You’ll never have unsightly wiring running along your pathways or dangling from your soffits. The professional lighting installers at Elite Lighting Design know how to install in a way that is seamless, safe, and beautiful.
- Professional lighting designers do Nighttime Demos
Do it yourself projects are often filled with guesswork. Which fixtures should I use? How many lamps and at what wattage will I need to light my trees, shrubs, house, pool, decks, walkways. If you’re planning to light your café, hotel, restaurant, or office building, do you have time to explore what fixtures are the best, whether to use uplighting, recessed lighting, what wires and transformers are needed? Wouldn’t you rather be working in your business than trying to become a landscape lighting designer on your weekends or time off?Once our sales staff has met with you and assessed your needs, we set a time to send out our team members to do a nighttime lighting demo at your home or place of business. No need to guess how many lamps you’ll need or what your landscaping will look like when properly lit. That’s our job. We will show you how your decks, steps, walkways, parking lots, and architecture will look. We can try out different colors for the walls of your home or commercial building. We can match the color branding of your business with the colors we choose. It takes less than 30 minutes for us to set up our demo and we can move things around, try out different ideas, colors, and fixtures. It’s fun to see the many options we have in store for you.
Always remember that time is money and your time is valuable.
