Older lighting systems typically utilize outdated incandescent or halogen lights that are less energy efficient and have limited life spans. These outdated systems also incorporate analog timers that “drift” or fail to keep accurate time thus requiring constant adjustment. Transformers that utilize old fuses often need replacing when a circuit is broken and or when for when wire connection methods such as wire nuts that allow moisture into wiring connections cause short circuits.
In summary, the older systems are often inefficient, less reliable and require more maintenance as they age. By upgrading old fixtures with new LED bulbs, analog timers with wifi app based timers and outdated transformers with programmable transformers your system will perform better and be far more energy efficient. For more budget minded solutions, where possible, we may reuse existing fixtures and in ground wiring to economically bring your system up to date with current technology.
