Do you install Low Voltage Landscape Lighting? Did you decide to get into the portion of the business because ‘it’s very easy’ and ‘it’s good money’. Well these sound like two really good reasons to start… but did you ever take the time to really learn how to install the lights correctly? Education on the right topics can take your business a long way.
Why Outdoor Lighting Education Is Important
Just like any facet of our business—learning the right way to do it—and continuing to educate yourself is of great value to you and your customers!
Manufacturers and industry associations offer many opportunities to grow professionally and provide top level service to your clients. For example, next week in Atlantic City, at the 2022 MAHTS show, we will be involved in several educational seminars along with many professionals in the hardscape industry. We will be educating and helping contractors better themselves.
Do you know how to properly size a transformer? How about the wire? What about the connections? Well there are a number of options out there, but knowing what is the best for your climate and installations… These are the details that can unlock the potential of making your project standout. You want to be known for professional reliability, knowledge, and having durable installations against the weather and other outdoor elements.
Where do I place this fixture? How much should I be charging? These are all elements that you will access on any given property—but having an idea as to how this process works will put you two steps ahead.
