While there is quite the array of low voltage outdoor lighting kits and set ups, there are a few things that you may want to consider before you jump in and purchase your new upgrade.
Sure the box says it is easy to install yourself, but wouldn’t you if you were trying to sell something? In many instances personal install is possible and cuts back on unnecessary spending costs, but make sure you do your homework before you begin. If you don’t know what a certain step means, don’t go on until you figure out exactly what it is saying. The consequences could affect the entire outcome of your new low voltage outdoor lighting kit.
Another important thing to consider is how much energy you are consuming with purchasing a lighting kit. I’m not here to preach about global warming, but there is no hurt in being a little more conservative. If anything, it saves you on your bill. Many low voltage outdoor lighting assemblies are solar powered, and process natural energy from the sun right into your beautiful yard.
Lastly, ensure that you take special consideration to design before you go at it. Missing a light by one foot or placing it slightly out of line might seem minor, but in the grand picture it might be the eye sore of the entire property.
If you follow these guidelines before you begin purchasing your new low voltage outdoor lighting, the task of installation yourself will be just as easy as it claims to be on the box.
