Our recent project in Melville, NY, proves the power of an expert outdoor lighting design. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Long Island, we realize the importance of subtly accentuating the best features of your home and outdoor spaces. Professional outdoor lighting is not about getting the brightest lights or the biggest lighting fixtures. Well-designed, perfectly placed lighting is much more effective than extravagant light displays, and this project is the proof.
When we arrived at this residence for the consultation, the customer had existed masonry outdoor lights. He contacted us to learn about adding lighting to the front and back of his home, and elegantly integrate the existing masonry lighting into this design. During the consultation, we noted the visible color difference in light. We also discussed phasing the endeavor into two phases; one phase for the front of the home and one for the back and outdoor living spaces. With these factors in mind, we worked hard to reconfigure the system in order to gain the benefits of our energy-efficient LED’s along with a reconfiguration using the infrastructure that was already in place. This process included retrofitting the existing masonry lighting to super-efficient LED along with the dual-phased plan for the rest of the property.
During the 1st phase, we added 42 fixtures. During the 2nd we added 39. Not only did the project provide ambiance and beauty to the home and property, it also resulted in a consistent color of light and deliver energy savings well beyond what traditional low voltage could provide. Our high-quality LED’s have a bulb life of 50,000 hours. In addition, our patent-pending technology separates the electronics from the light source, reducing the heat the LED light source is subjected to, thereby extending its already long life.
As you can clearly see from the completed project images, the entire property is beautifully illuminated, but not over-done, and the color of the light is now cohesive and inviting:
If you already own a halogen outdoor lighting system, don’t worry. We can retrofit your current system to LED. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Long Island offers many solutions for retrofitting an existing low – voltage halogen lighting system to LED. Retrofits vary based on the types of fixtures installed, their age and condition. Our professional team will evaluate your current system and provide options tailored to your needs, style and budget to confirm whether your existing system is a candidate for retrofit.
Our lighting designers will work with you to get maximum results from minimal lighting, saving you money and maintenance along the way — proving, as always, less is more!
