What is a transformer?
A transformer is an electrical device that increases or decreases the voltage and current being dispersed. Transformers are commonly used for devices like doorbells and landscape lighting because they operate at a lower voltage. Standard house voltage runs at 120 volts while doorbells and low voltage landscape lighting operate at around 12 volts. A transformer is used to reduce the current transferred so that it can operate at a lower voltage safely and efficiently.
Is your doorbell making a funny buzzing sound or has it stopped working all together? Give Mr. Electric a call and we will help you get rid of that harsh buzzing noise and replace it with a charming and welcoming melody. Make a great first impression when your guests arrive at your door with the clear ring of a new doorbell.
Low-Voltage Landscape Lighting Transformers
Are you looking to install low-voltage landscape lighting or are you having difficulty effectively and efficiently using your current landscape lighting? It may be time to update your existing transformer or install a new one.
Low-voltage landscape lighting typically uses 12-24 volts instead of the standard 120 volts. A transformer will reduce the current transferred so that you can safely and efficiently use your landscape lights. The advantage to using low-voltage systems is that they use less energy, they are safer, more flexible and ultimately more attractive. The transformers for low-voltage lighting can even be buried inconspicuously in the yard while still maintaining peak performance.
