To discuss your landscape lighting needs!
Landscape lighting can enhance the exterior of your home, transforming your landscape, patio, pool or walkway into a dramatic nighttime haven. Landscape lighting not only improves the exterior of your home, but also adds the element of safety and security.
Designing a Landscape Lighting System
There are two types of lighting systems to choose from when designing a system. They are 120 volt (line voltage) and 12 volt (low voltage). Each system has its advantages and disadvantages.
Giudici electricians will consult with you to determine the best option for your home or business landscape needs. We will recommend specific lighting fixtures and placement to achieve the beautiful night time look and the security that you seek.
12 Volt (low voltage)
- 12-volt power supply reduces the risk of electric shock
- Smaller fixtures allowing less visibility
- Not for larger lighting projects
- Voltage drop. Limits the amount of fixtures on circuit and distance of lights.
- Smaller maximum bulb wattage (limitations on up-lighting tall trees or far distances)
120 Volt (line voltage)
- Accommodates lighting larger areas
- Brilliant illumination for tall trees or far distances
- Higher maximum lamp wattage in fixtures
- Can only be installed by a licensed and insured master electrician
Both 120 volt and 12-volt systems can be used together to achieve the balance necessary for your installation. There are various methods to properly light your property or home such as path lighting, down lighting, up-lighting and several others. These techniques will vary depending on the scene you are trying to create.
