Illuminate Your Living Space:
The Art and Science of Home Exterior Lighting with American National Sprinkler & Lighting

Have you ever paused to admire a beautifully lit home, with each architectural feature enhanced by expertly placed lights? How often have you wished your own home could have the same ambiance, bringing a sense of both aesthetic pleasure and security? If these questions have crossed your mind, you've begun to tap into the transformative potential of home exterior lighting. Here at American National Sprinkler & Lighting, we blend artistry with functionality, delivering results that exceed expectations.

Unveiling the Power of Home Exterior Lighting

Lighting is more than just bulbs and wires; it's a creative means of personal expression. A house is not merely a structure; it's a canvas waiting to be adorned with the unique brilliance of exterior illumination.

Imagine your home's exterior as an undisturbed, serene lake. Now envision home exterior lighting as a pebble tossed into this tranquil waterscape. The ensuing ripples of light influence the aesthetic landscape, revealing previously hidden beauty. Isn't that what you want your home to feel like – a space where light reveals and enhances every beautiful nook and corner?

Home exterior lighting adds both security and beauty to your home. We can tackle any home exterior lighting project no matter how big or small. We love to hear your vision and make it a reality for your family. We provide numerous outdoor lighting services and systems with your lifestyle in mind. We use high-quality materials for long-lasting systems that hold up to any wear and tear.

Architectural Highlighting: Showcasing Your Home's Best Features

Home exterior lighting is akin to a maestro conducting an orchestra. With the right strategic placement and brightness levels, lighting can emphasize your home's architectural strengths and obscure its less appealing features. It’s similar to how a skilled artist uses light and shadow in a painting to create depth and interest. But how do you achieve such a harmonious interplay of light and architecture at your property? That's where we, at American National Sprinkler & Lighting, step in with our years of expertise and commitment to superior customer service.

Beyond Aesthetics: The Role of Security

While aesthetic appeal is an undeniable advantage of exterior lighting, let's not overlook the role of lighting in home security. A well-lit exterior serves as a deterrent to potential intruders, akin to a vigilant guardian warding off unwanted attention. Combine this with motion sensors and timed lights, and your home becomes a well-lit fortress, striking the perfect balance between attractiveness and safety.

We used American National Sprinkler & Lighting for Irrigation system installation in Sept 2020 and we were beyond... impressed with the quality of their work. American National Sprinkler & Lighting won the bid after several weeks of getting and reviewing quotes. We are so happy that we decided to go with them. Laury was the sales person who provided us with the quote and walked us through the whole process. Laury was a pleasure to work with and most importantly everything was carefully planned to the last detail with no surprises at the end. We were thrilled with the end result. We have been enjoying a green and lush grass with always in bloom flower in the flower beds. What a relief: No more garden hoses :-)We are looking forward to a long lasting relationship with American National Sprinkler & Lighting.Highly recommend!read more

We needed to upgrade our irrigation system after a major landscape renovation. We have used American National for 20... years to maintain our original system. Brett and his team evaluated the current and came up with a plan to expand the system to accommodate the new plantings. Brett also highlighted new technology that would enhance the existing system. The work was performed professionally and quickly. The team was careful not to disturb the new plantings.After the installation was completed, the follow up confirmation visit highlighted some tweaks required to ensure complete coverage.I was very satisfied with the quality of the work performed and would recommend American National more

Easily one of the best decisions I ever made having a sprinkler system installed. We don't have a very big yard, but... it's layout is tricky for hand watering. We do have a large planting bed with a lot flowers and vegetables, as well as a bunch of hanging baskets. The system that American National Sprinkler installed covers everything and all from my phone via the app! Everyone that I dealt with from the company were incredibly nice, knowledgeable and accommodating. My system was installed less than two weeks ago and already my lawn looks as though it wasn't having underground pipes shoved into it. Highly recommend this company and I plan on using them for my outdoor lighting plans in the very near more

Alex came out to my house on a Saturday evening to fix my sprinklers because of the heat we have had. He not only... fixed everything, he walked me through my entire yard and repositioned a few sprinkler heads and showed me a few tip and tricks on my control panel. All of this on a late Saturday evening to take care of the more

Recently had an issue with a backflow valve that was leaking badly. ANS&L came out on a Sunday AM to check it out.... Turns out that the value had accumulated debris, which they cleaned out, getting me functional again. To have that type of prompt service during COVID-19, when operations are clearly being affected, speaks to their commitment to their customers. ANS&L has been consistent in responsiveness and upkeep of my in-ground sprinkler system, and I cannot speak highly enough of my satisfaction with the company, the staff, and the quality of their products. HIGHLY more

Have been working with Am Ntl for over 10years. They installed my inground sprinkling system and have opened/closed and... maintained the entire time. Great company. Easy to schedule, prompt and the crew is always professional and courteous. I look forward to the same group every year! Pricing is competitive with other companies. I have had some minor issues with the system due to aging and landscaping and each time Am Ntl came out promptly to examine and help repair. Highly recommend working with them!read more

Our system continues to work great, and we always appreciate getting the phones calls to let us know when it is time to... schedule the opening and the closing of our system. Andres and his partner do a terrific job putting our system to bed in the fall, and opening it up again in the spring, noting any work that might need to happen before we can begin to water again the next more

I highly recommend American National Sprinkler & Lighting. They make the process of opening and closing my sprinklers... a breeze. I get a call in the spring to open them up and in the fall to close. Diego and his crew just came out to close the sprinklers recently and they could not have been more professional and polite. Keep up the great work!!read more

Andres from American National Sprinkler & Lighting came by yesterday to perform the annual "shut-down" of my sprinkler... system. As always, they were on time, professional and finished the job quickly. My system is 10 years old now and I've never had a problem with it, and the support for the system is always right on the mark. I would recommend Andres and ANSL without hesitation to anyone looking for a great more

We contacted American National when we moved in to our first home, to give our home some life and illuminate the... landscape, and within an hour someone contacted me and set up and appointment for the following weekend. Dave A. met us out on that Saturday and walked around our yard and gave us some great ideas and really put our vision into reality. Fast forward to today, and my husband and I will take time each night to take a walk out the front of our house just to admire the wonderful ambiance, American National was able to add to our home. If you are looking to take your curb appeal to the next level,contact American National Lighting! You'll be great hands!read more
