  • Curtis H., Glenview, IL

    “The Illuminators did a great job planning, drawing up, recommending a plan and installing a great new system. The final effect makes a stunning difference to the beauty of the home, especially when done by the right people like The Illuminators.”

  • Rea L., Addison, IL

    “Very professional, neat and timely.”

  • Diane V., Elgin, 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!”

  • David Z., Willowbrook, 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.”

  • Review by a Neighbor in Hinsdale, IL

    “They were prompt, courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. I would use their services again, should the need arise.”

  • Peggy H., Park Ridge, IL

    “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. Our original contractor was out of business and no one else wanted to repair our lighting system. They didn't hesitate and were extremely competent.”

  • Geri D., Addison, IL

    “I was called by them literally within minutes and they were out in 2 days. They came at the time I was told. They were very nice, explained cost and what they felt they needed to do. Executed the work in a timely and efficient manner and I am extremely pleased. I will definitely use them again.”

  • David Z., Long Grove, IL

    “This is a company that is extremely knowledgeable and honest. I met with Joe who has a passion for what he does that is very rare nowadays. These are true professionals. I would recommend them to anyone and hire them again in a second.”

  • Michael B., Saint Charles, IL

    “I was very pleased with the service and will use your company for ALL my outdoor lighting needs.”

  • Kent M., Park Ridge, IL

    “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.”

  • Linda M., Wheaton, IL

    “From the first phone contact through completion of the job, they were very professional...did a great job...were prompt in arrival, worked quickly and were thorough to be certain all the necessary repairs to our outside lighting were made.”

  • Review by a Neighbor in Evanston, IL

    “Prompt, creative, flexible, delivered as promised”

  • Review by a Neighbor in Hinsdale, IL

    “They responded the same day. We made an appointment met and had our lights by the end of the week. Their prices were reasonable and their work was exceptional. We will continue to use them.”

  • Review by a Neighbor in Aurora, IL

    “Good work, fast and efficient”

  • Review by a Neighbor in Woodridge, IL

Whether you own a home, commercial building, office or municipal building in Darien, Illinois, LED landscape lighting will save up to 80% in outdoor lighting energy costs, saving you a significant amount of money per year over the other outdoor lighting options.

LED landscape lighting bulbs are rated to last 25,000 – 50,000 hours depending on the manufacturer. Normal 12V halogen bulbs are only rated between 1,000 – 10,000 hours.

LED outdoor landscape lighting is the safest form of outdoor lighting producing very little heat compared to outdated halogen landscape lighting. The LED lighting fixture is only slightly warm to the touch whereas halogen landscape lights can cause severe burns to people and also pose a fire hazard.
