How can I tell what my property will look like with a new lighting system?

Illuminations Lighting Concepts will come to your property and provide you with a demonstration so that you may see exactly what your property will look like with our accent lighting.  If there is something in the design that you want o change, we can make adjustments during the demonstration so that you get the exact design that suits your needs.
If you are from outside the tri-State area, we will design from a set of landscape plans from your architect.  If necessary, we will visit your property to ensure all of the intricacies of the lighting plan are me once the job is completed.

What brand of product do you install?

Illuminations Lighting Concepts installs Unique brand transformers on every job because of their superior quality and ability to supply the proper and equal amount of power to each fixture.  We install a number of different fixtures including Unique, Hadco, Kichler, and Focus.

How are the lights controlled?

There are a number of different timing options available including Lutron, X10, Jandy, digital, and mechanical clocks.  Illuminations Lighting Concepts will work with you to design the timing system that best beets your needs.

How long does a bulb last?

Illuminations Lighting Concepts uses different bulbs for different design goals.  The most common bulb is a 35-watt Par 36 that has a lifespan of 4000 hours, which translates into about 2 years.  In general though the bulbs we install last 1-3 years.  We strongly recommend a Service Contract for a Lifetime Warranty to help maximize the life of the bulbs.

Do you offer a warranty?

Illuminations Lighting Concepts offers a one-year warranty on every new install and 90 days on all new bulbs. After one year, we can extend you a factory lifetime warranty with a Service Contract. By signing up for 2, 4, 6 or 12 regularly scheduled visits per year, we will warranty all Unique brand fixtures and transformers for life.  In addition, we offer a discount on any visit requested outside of regular contract visits.
