System Integrity & Performance Plans
Service and proper upkeep of an outdoor lighting system is essential to maintain the maximum lighting effect and ensure your investment will last for years to come. A well designed lighting plan can lose its effectiveness if not cared for properly over time. As landscape changes and plants mature, lighting fixtures may need to be adjusted to maintain desired results
Over time lamps lose their brightness causing the overall effect of your lighting system to look dim and yellow.One of the major advantages of a low voltage lighting system is that as trees grow and landscape matures or changes, your system has the flexibility to be adjusted accordingly. Having designed and installed your outdoor lighting system & carefully documented every step during that process, Higher Ground has the advantage of knowing your system inside and out and can make the proper repairs and adjustments.
There are also opportunities to make additions and alterations to your system. We can offer suggestions for additional fixtures and services.
Ensures proper voltage and amperage operating ranges are being maintained which is critical to achieve maximum life expectancy of your lighting system.
All automation controlling mechanisms must be checked regularly for adjustment and cleaning. Seasonal changes and weather conditions can adversely affect these components. It is essential that they be maintained to provide consistent turn-on and turn-off times for your system.
Clean fixtures and lenses, trim any overgrowth obstructing light output, grease lamp sockets and contact points with anti-corrosion compound, lubricate gaskets and O-rings.
Landscape is constantly growing and changing. Adjustments or additions may be necessary to account for the change in landscape and maintain desired effect.
Inspect transformers, tighten lugs and connection points in transformers, check connections, bury any exposed wire.
