We do a lot to protect our New Jersey homes from damage. We paint routinely, change our air filters, install security systems, and pay for homeowner’s insurance. All of these measures are important. Some help us prevent problems from occurring, and others serve as a protective measure should the worst happen. Actually one of the reasons you installed outdoor lighting may have been to help increase security and safety on your property. Of course, it wasn’t the only one. Outdoor lighting makes your property beautiful, helps you relax, and increases the curb appeal of your home. As much as you love your New Jersey outdoor lighting system, you certainly want to be sure to protect it as well. An important system component that performs this function but is also easily overlooked is the lens cover for each well light.
Lens covers are protective shields that snap into your well light fixtures. Our lens covers are available with a brass frame that withstands pesticides and other chemicals used in lawns and flower beds and clear glass for easy cleaning. Optional colored filters can be used with the covers to easily decorate for holidays or celebrations. Lens covers protect your New Jersey outdoor lights by helping to keep debris out of your fixtures. This is especially important for well lights since they are installed at ground level in places such as flower beds. Because of the fixtures’ positions and design, landscaping debris, mulch, or leaves can accumulate inside over time. This will negatively affect your fixture in two ways. First, debris will hold moisture close to the bulb and other components. This can cause bulbs to burn out more quickly and increases the risk of shorts in electrical components. Secondly, even wet debris will dry out over time because they are near a warm bulb. Once dried this debris become hot and increase your risk of a fire.
Lens covers keep debris away from the bulb, so your lights function more safely. They currently come standard with each well light sold by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Northern New Jersey, but if you own an older OLP system, lens covers may not have been included with the well lights you purchased. Just give us a call. We can reduce your risk of fire and extend the life of your system components by adding lens covers to all your well lights, whether you own a halogen or LED system. And with the holidays just around the corner, don’t forget to ask about our colored options. They make decorating a snap.
You don’t gamble with home security, dry rot, or termites. Don’t gamble with your outdoor lighting either. Contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Northern New Jersey today. We want to help ensure your system is functioning safely, and lens covers can help give you peace of mind about your outdoor lighting.
