The Illuminators
Project: Plan and Install Landscape Lighting
“From the first call from Nick to the follow up, I felt that The Illuminators, Inc. handled themselves professionally. Nick worked with me throughout the estimate and design process extremely well and even came out with the installers to ensure that the design was carried out to my satisfaction. The two gentlemen, and I stress the word gentlemen, were very professional and explained the functioning of the lights very well. I would highly recommend The Illuminators, Inc. to anyone looking for quality design, product and service.”

“Absolutely wonderful. Understood our vision for our backyard project, installed the work in a timely fashion (we were on a time deadline they fit us into), then came back when we found out the lights weren't bright enough. They showed up, listened to our new needs, installed brighter lights, then stayed around until dark to see if they were acceptable, which they were. Price was better than suggested by another firm.”

“They were GREAT! I would definitely call them again if I had another outdoor lighting problem. They were prompt, courteous; finished with the time frame they said and were a very good value.

A Neighbor in Glenview, IL

“I had tried several companies before finding these guys. I was shocked by how others were either too pushy, rude, or sometimes just plain inappropriate. Most seemed focused on selling you as many lights as they could get away with regardless of what we wanted. The Illuminators were different. They were professional, use quality products, only metal fixtures as opposed to the plastic lights others offered, and their price was as reasonable as anyone elses, if not more so. But far and away they were the easiest to deal with from a design standpoint. They listened to us without pressuring their own agenda. They follow through to the end.”

Yolie C. in Bartlett, IL

“Using The Illuminators, Inc. for our exterior lighting installation was a very positive, worthwhile experience. They were extremely professional and knowledgeable, listened to our vision, offered further enhancements to the project, and delivered what they promised, on time and on budget. A major concern for us was how the installation would impact our existing landscaping. They did such a beautiful install that our landscaping was not disturbed--it was hard to tell they did the installation! We look forward to working with The Illuminators again as we expand our exterior lighting to additional areas of our property. Highly Recommend!”

Good Ideas

  1. LED bulbs and fixtures are shock resistant. They can withstand bumps and knocks. Unlike incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs do not have delicate filaments which can be damaged due to movement of a fixture or bulb.

  2. All landscape lighting systems should have professional maintenance performed on them 1 - 2 times a year to protect system components and to prevent system deterioration and failure.

  3. LED bulb replacement is almost non-existent. LED landscape lighting bulbs are rated to last 25,000 - 70,000 hours depending on the manufacturer. Normal 12V halogen bulbs are usually rated between 1,000 - 10,000 hours.


News and Events

We Retrofit Halogen Bulbs

The Illuminators installed LED retrofit bulbs into a customer's existing deck (puck) lights because their halogen bulbs were causing too much heat and caused the fixtures to be hot to the touch. After installing the LED bulbs the customer was happy to report that the heat problem had been solved.
