Transformer Installation – How It Should Be Done

Transformer Installed by the Other guys vs. Transformer Installed by Light It Right. The details really do matter, as you can see we ensure the runs and cables from your system back to the transformer are in conduit and not left exposed to the elements or being damaged by someone, we also make sure there is no extra slack from the transformer to the outlet leaving it looked unfinished and as an afterthought – the transformer is the life center of your system, it needs the same love and attention the rest of your lighting gets. This is just one way that Light It Right goes above and beyond in our lighting installations and service.

Current Light It Right Project in Tomball

Light It Right has been honored to have our design, custom created by our own Certified Outdoor Lighting Designer, Brandon Kuehler, COLD, selected to enhance the look of this beautiful residential project that is featured on the ASID home tour this summer. Here are some pictures of some of the hardscape lights that have been installed for the front steps. If you are in the area July 7th-31 please stop by and see the final product.

Difference in LED Color Temperatures and Uses

 

LEDs come in a variety of color temperatures which gives us as installers more flexibility over old halogen bulbs when it comes to designing your lighting system.

The most common LED color you see and we use is 2700K (L) – gives that same glow of the old halogen bulbs. We use this color temperature on houses, stonework, fountains, fire pits, etc.

For greenery we like to use 3000K (M) – it is a little brighter than 2700K. The 3000K tends to bring the color of the greenery out and really highlight its natural beauty.

The LED on the Right is the 5700K or the “Blue” LED. When people think of LED this is the color they picture with LED bulbs since when LEDs first came out this was the color they were, and the only color available. If we use a 5700K it is on Modern style homes, Putting Greens, Basketball goals or other task related areas.

LEDs have come a long way since they came to market and has made it possible for us to customize our customers systems more to their personal tastes than ever before.

Owner Brandon Completes COLD

At this year’s Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals annual conference Brandon received his Certified Outdoor Lighting Designer Certification – Brandon was 1 of 5 that complete the program this year. This certification was a 4 year program where Brandon had to complete multiple projects for each year and ended with a large final project which consisted of mapping out from start to finish one of our installations. Brandon selected our largest project to date for his final project…all 500 lights were labeled by brand, style, bulb, beam spread, temperature used and all the wiring and runs drawn out.

The goal of the Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals is to bring awareness to what we as lighting professionals do. We are low voltage lightning EXPERTS – we do nothing else, we don’t mow your lawn, clean your pool and do lighting on the side – lighting is our passion and our 100% focus, not an after thought. Members of AOLP are the best of the best in the industry and are working to set quality standards to be followed by all so customers, like you, receive the best quality out there and not get taken by a fly by night contractors with the lowest price and the lowest quality – its the age old adage, you get what you pay for, and this is giving people like Light It Right a bad reputation. When one guy is out there doing poor work it reflects on the industry, which is why people like Brandon and others in AOLP are working to stop this practice and educate the public about what proper lighting is and how it should be installed. If you are getting quotes start asking are you a member of AOLP? Are you certified either CLVLT or COLD? It is easy to verify if there are or not, just click here.

All of us at Light It Right Congratulate Brandon on this achievement! With the skills he developed on this final project Light It Right is looking at a new service to provide our customers. More will come once we work the details out.

Thank you to all of our wonderful customers for your continued support
