Wow, It's getting dark....

Daylight savings has ended and it is getting dark close to 5pm. When I started the heads up back in September it seemed far off but we all know time flies. So, for anyone left in the dark, you'll need to get working on your landscape lighting system maintenance. Safety is critical so keep walkways well lit.

-change all the bulbs at the same time each year. It's okay to wait for one to burn out (indication that others will follow). Changing at the same time will save you time and money. Time because you won't be out there every other night changing one bulb at time and money because you won't have to track which bulb was replaced when....

Just a quick tip but hopefully helpful...

With halogen light systems, you have to be concerned with changes in voltage. When one bulb burns out, the next bulb will absorb the unused voltage, increasing it's voltage. If the added voltage takes the next bulb over 12v, it will lead to burnout and the process continues down the line.
