Charlotte Irrigation Winterization for 2014 Winter

Despite the chilling weather we've already experienced, the season of winter does not officially begin until this Saturday. If Charlotte's late fall temperatures are any indication of things to come, we are in for a cold one this year.

As the thermostat continues to fall as we approach the coldest part of the year, time is running out to get a Charlotte irrigation winterization.

"If you haven't already winterized your irrigation system for the winter, now is the time to do it," said John Minor of Irrigation and Lighting Specialist. "The cost of winterization is relatively inexpensive when compared to the cost of freeze repairs. In other words, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." 

What Is Winterization? 

Your irrigation system is made up of underground pipes, connective plumbing, valves and sprinkler heads. When the system is running, water flows through this underground plumbing and pushes through its sprinkler heads. When the system is not running, water sits idle in the system. 

Once the ground freezes, the water inside your irrigation system will freeze. Since water expands as it freezes, your pipes can become cracked or split. 

The Charlotte irrigation winterization services offered by Irrigation and Lighting Specialist removes all of the water from your system to protect it during the winter. 

Reasons To Get Charlotte Irrigation Winterization 

Below are a few reasons why you should winterize your irrigation system this winter: 
  • Winterizing ensures your irrigation system will be ready to run in the spring. 
  • Failure to winterize may void your system's warranty. 
  • It is less expensive to winterize your system than to repair it. 
  • Freezing temperatures can cause severe damage to your system. 

"There is really no reason not to winterize your irrigation system," said Minor. "It is the best way to protect your investment, and with below-average temperatures forecasted for Charlotte this winter, your system will definitely need it to avoid damages." 

For more information about Charlotte irrigation winterization, call John Minor with Irrigation and Lighting Specialist at 704-747-0235 or email John. We look forward to helping you protect your irrigation system for the frigid winter ahead!

Professional Charlotte Christmas Light Installation

In case you haven't noticed the Christmas music, overcrowded malls or flashy TV commercials, the holiday season has officially arrived. While this time of the year is typically associated with joyous memories and bringing families together, it can also be a little hectic. Between shopping, planning family dinners and decorating, the stress of Christmas is enough to make anyone say, "Bah humbug!"

To avoid being a Scrooge this year, hire Irrigation and Lighting Specialist to handle all of your Charlotte Christmas light installation needs. From creating your design and installing your lights to maintenance and take-down, you can transform your yard into a winter wonderland without lifting a finger.

"Over the years we have helped hundreds of Charlotte homeowners with their Christmas lighting needs," said John Minor of Irrigation and Lighting Specialist. "Our customers love the convenience factor and our ability to create festive designs that compliment the beauty of their homes."

Reasons to Get a Professional Charlotte Christmas Light Installation

Hiring a professional to decorate your home for the holiday season may be the best present you could get yourself this year. Some of the main reasons to hire a professional include: 
  • Save Time - For most people, it takes one to two days to complete their Christmas decorating. Who has the time for that? Hire a professional and you can spend those two days doing something for yourself or completing other holiday tasks. Not to mention, you won't have to go out into this cold weather. 
  • Safety - The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that around 18,000 homeowners were treated in emergency rooms for holiday decorating falls over the last three years. The holiday season is meant to be spent around a dinner table or a Christmas tree, not in the ER. Plus, all of our installers are insured. 
  • Avoid the Hassle - If you are like most, chances are your Christmas lights weren't stored properly last year, and they are now in a huge tangled pile. It could take hours getting them operational again, and you have to make sure all the bulbs are in working order. Avoid these headaches and hire a trained professional.
  • Maintenance - Ever have a bulb go out on your Christmas display? If so, then you know how much of a pain it is to hunt down the burnt bulb and replace it. All of our services include maintenance, so if a bulb or anything else needs to be fixed, we will correct the problem promptly. 
  • Take-Down - You don't want to be the house on the block that still has its Christmas lights up on Valentine's Day, but taking them down is a devilish chore. If you hire Irrigation and Lighting Specialist, we take down all of the lights and decorations and prepare them for storage. It is one less thing you have to worry about. 
"As one of the top Charlotte Christmas light installation teams, we are able to draw from more than 26 years of experience," said Minor. "We have experience meeting all types of budgets, deadlines and decorating needs. So, instead of adding to the stress of the holiday season, leave the decorating to us."

Save on Your Sprinkler System Winterization

If you haven't done so already, now is the time to schedule your sprinkler system winterization service. Temperatures will only continue to drop as we enter the month of December and freezing is expected to become a regular part of Charlotte's forecast.

"Charlotte homeowners should call as soon as possible to schedule their annual winterization and shut-down," said John Minor of Irrigation and Lighting Specialist. "We've already begun winterizing systems and the remaining appointments are filling up quickly. With our region already experiencing freezing weather and temperatures only getting colder throughout December, its more important than ever to protect your sprinkler system."

Sprinkler System Winterization Services 

The winterization process consists of removing all water from your sprinkler system and equipment. If water remains in your system, it will freeze, which causes pipes and fittings to burst, valves to crack and sprinkler and pump cases to split open. Getting a sprinkler system winterization service is the best way to avoid these costly damages. 

The professionals at Irrigation and Lighting Specialists offer sprinkler system winterization service options to ensure you're protected this winter. These cost-efficient service options include: 
  • Basic Winterization Service - $65 (Pre-Paid Pricing) - We will blow the water out of the lines and black flow to prevent cracking and bursting that is caused by freezing. This service is offered between now and January 5.
  • Winterization/Spring Start-Up Service - $135 (Pre-Paid Pricing) - This is service option provides our customers with the best value. We will perform our winterization service by shutting down your system for the winter, and we'll reopen it during the spring.
Additional services we provide at a discounted rate during the winter include: 
  • System Upgrades, Repairs and Renovations 
  • Smart Controller/PRS Heads
  • Fertigation Irrigation System 
  • Landscape Accent Lighting
  • Holiday Lighting

"Our prices are very competitive, and our maintenance services will save you even more money when compared to the repair costs you will avoid."
