Warm White vs Cool White Deck Lights

Troubleshooting Deck Lights

Blinking Lights & Transformers

Laying out and installing deck lighting for your home can seem overwhelming at first; but can easily be achieved one step at time and make you feel like a DIY Deck Pro! Especially when installing the low voltage options we feature here at DecksDirect, which are both environmental and user-friendly that manufacturers recommend installing them powered on.

Now for a DecksDirect Pro Tip: For low voltage deck lighting installed around your patio and outdoor space, if there's a consistent blinking occurring somewhere in your lighting setup, first things first, unplug your electrical transformer.

Blinking lights often mean there is a shortage or disconnect somewhere in your lighting layout. While this can be a common problem with an easy solution, not disconnecting the transformer soon enough can wear out the transformer, leading to a shorter transformer lifespan and the need for replacement. In order to avoid this, as soon as you or a member of your family notice some blinking in your outdoor setup, unplug the transformer immediately, and check all wire connections one by one to find the source.

At DecksDirect, we want to help make sure you find the best products for your needs and that work as well as possible for you. If at any point in your project you have any questions, feel free to give our deck experts a call at 1-888-824-5316 or send us an email at hello@decksdirect.com.
