Low voltage lighting systems are usually used throughout the home for landscape lighting. Low voltage, weather resistant fixtures are the chosen light fixtures used to build most lighting designs. If live wiring or terminals are reached, the low voltage used decreases the chance of electrocution. Even, if power supply transformers are used to decrease the voltage, the low voltage circuit is often separated from the mains voltage, which enhances safety.Learn more by visiting Moorestown custom outdoor lighting
While lighting brings your garden and exterior amenities to life at night time, it is also important to consider façade or feature lighting on the outside of your home. If the landscaping has been done right, the house should be properly complimented throughout the day. Why not expand the lighting of the landscape even to the outside surfaces of the house.
It is preferred to provide narrow beamed lighting that highlights sharp characteristics and wide angled flood lighting to pick up flat surfaces. These two simple methods produce pools of light and shadows that turn and make it come to life at night in a house that may be uninteresting during the day.
Even if you have never done any electrical installation before, low voltage landscape lighting is simple to mount. Prewired lighting systems are the simplest ones. These are low voltage light fittings with weather resistant transformers, sealed connectors and pre-installed lamps that come completely prewired and ready to mount. All you need to do is position each light fitting that is attached to a wire string, link the transformer to the mains voltage and switch it on where you want it. It’s so easy. Only individuals who have the skills to do so can mount separately wired low voltage light fittings and transformers. It is recommended that a trained electrician should carry out these installations. Note that it is beneficial to have a timer or daylight sensor during the installation so that the lighting is shut off automatically during daylight hours. Normally, after the landscaping has been done, landscape lighting is applied. It would be a smart idea to lay conduits or ducts in your garden with this in mind. When it comes time to run the low voltage wiring, this will eliminate any trench digging. Map out where you think you’re going to want to match your light fittings and lay ducts or conduits.
