Landscape Lighting Repair FAQs

How do I reset the timer on my landscape lighting system?2024-03-18T16:00:21+00:00

Consult the user manual for your specific timer model, as instructions may vary. Typically, you’ll need to locate the reset button or power cycle the timer to restore it to its default settings. But then you need to re-program the timer, so having the instructions handy is a good idea. In most cases you can find instructions online. If you have one of our timers, we offer free phone support re-setting and re-programming your timer.

Can I repair my landscape lighting system myself, or should I hire a professional?2024-03-18T16:01:05+00:00

Minor repairs such as replacing bulbs or tightening connections can often be done by homeowners with basic tools and electrical knowledge. However, for more complex issues or if you’re unsure about safety, it’s best to hire a landscape lighting specialist. Usually electricians will not repair low voltage landscape lighting. If you are in our service area, we have the most experienced landscape lighting technicians around. Give us a call.

How do I maintain my landscape lighting system to prevent future problems?2024-03-18T16:01:22+00:00

Regularly inspect the system for loose connections, exposed or damaged wires, broken or downed fixtures. Always use water tight connectors to prevent corrosion. Burry the exposed cable to protect it from critters and sloppy landscapers. Clean the light fixtures and lenses to remove dirt and debris that can affect performance and overheat the fixtures. Trim the foliage around the fixtures to prevent blocking the light and possible fire hazards. When you see something that you can’t fix, call a landscape lighting technician and do not let the problem simmer for too long. Small repairs can turn into large ones if left unresolved.

What should I do if my landscape lighting system is exposed to water?2024-03-18T16:01:40+00:00

Landscape lighting devices are meant to be outdoors, so if installed correctly and properly maintained they should have no problem with normal rain. However, while they are resistant to water, they are not meant to be submerged underwater. If water gets inside the electrical components that will most likely short the system. Immediately turn off the power to the system and allow it to dry thoroughly before attempting any repairs. Inspect for any damaged components and replace them as needed to prevent further issues. Remove the cause of the flooding (lost covers, broken glass lenses, etc.). If the fixture is in a place with repeated flooding, then that fixture has to be moved to a new location or an underwater fixture can be used in its place.

How do I replace a burnt-out bulb in my landscape lighting?2024-03-25T17:54:14+00:00

Turn off the power to the lighting system, allow the bulb to cool if it’s been recently used, then carefully remove the old bulb and replace it with a new one of the same type and wattage. Using the same type and wattage bulbs for replacements is critical to keeping your system running properly. Adding more wattage can cause the transformer to burn out, and removing wattage can cause voltage to spike and burn the lightbulbs quickly. Always check the voltage at your fixtures to make sure they are working at or close to the required voltage. Do not convert and old halogen system to LED unless you have a voltage meter and you are capable of adjusting the voltage in your system, otherwise your LED bulbs will simply burn out quickly, defeating one of the biggest advantages of LEDs.

What should I do if my lights flicker or dim intermittently?2024-03-25T17:55:51+00:00

This could be caused by loose connections, a faulty transformer, or incompatible bulbs. Ensure all connections are secure and consider replacing any damaged components. Symptoms like these point to a complex issue that needs to be diagnosed and repaired correctly. Consider calling a qualified landscape lighting technician. If you are in our service area, we have the most experienced landscape lighting technicians around. Give us a call.

How do I troubleshoot if only some of my lights are working?2024-03-18T16:02:37+00:00

Check for loose connections, damaged wires, or corroded terminals. Test each light individually to identify the specific problem areas. In the simplest cases, a burned out bulb is the problem and simply replacing it will resolve the issue. However other possible issues could be cut cables, loose connections, damaged or worn out sockets, or faulty transformer not able to deliver enough wattage to certain parts of the system. Issues other than simple light bulb replacements usually require an experienced technician. If you are in our service area, we have the most experienced landscape lighting technicians around. Give us a call.

Why isn’t my landscape lighting turning on?2024-03-18T16:02:55+00:00

This could be due to various issues such as a blown fuse, a tripped circuit breaker, a disconnected wire, a faulty transformer, or a problem with the outlet where the transformer is plugged in. It could also be a timer issue, or a photo sensor issue (the devices that turn the system ON and OFF).

I cannot say enough great things about Dan and the team at Premiere Lighting! I had a vision for my front and back yard, and they went above and beyond to customize the vision to my liking and budget. Then when I presented a service I needed that they weren’t able to provide, they gave me a professional reference and I’m overjoyed overall with the results!

Premier was fantastic. They were quick to come out for an estimate, the pricing was fair, and the service was great. They installed the lighting system exactly the way they explained they would and the lighting looks awesome. Very happy with them and would highly recommend them!

I needed to extend my outdoor lighting to my backyard and reached out to 3 outdoor lighting contractors. I selected Premier Lighting because of the professionalism, insight and attention to detail provided by Daniel Fernandez when he came out to provide a quote. In addition they immediately arrived and installed the lighting to illuminate the one acre back yard. The yard looks spectacular! Thank you for your service!

Premier lighting provided landscape lighting for our town house complex. Daniel and Sergio provided excellent and responsive services. Dealing with multiple residents, they were able to make modifications as requested. The overall effect of the path lights and uplighting produced an incredible effect. We have received overwhelming positive responses from our residents.

Amazing experience from start to finish. I was so impressed with how thorough and thoughtful the presentation was. I could picture exactly what I was getting before it was installed, so there were no surprises. Every person I spoke with in the company was extremely kind, courteous and professional. This is how all businesses should be run! My only regret is not doing this sooner. The beautiful lighting has really elevated our home and made us feel safer.
