Frequently Asked Questions
WHO IS TRIMLIGHT?
Trimlight is the Nation’s first and foremost provider and installer of permanent LED lighting for homes and businesses that provides year-round architectural accents, increases security, celebrates holidays and events, enlivens outdoor spaces, and enhances curb appeal.
WHAT IS TRIMLIGHT?
Trimlight is a permanent, programmable LED lighting system for your home or business. Trimlight is professionally installed and allows for holiday, landscape and security lighting year-round! The lights are completely customizable through the Trimlight app, hardly noticeable during the day, and energy efficient. We’re the most functional and versatile permanent lighting on the market.
WHAT CAN TRIMLIGHT BE USED FOR?
Trimlight can be installed on any structure, both residential and commercial, including patios and outdoor living spaces, movie theaters, parks, churches, restaurants, banks, etc. Basically, if you’re a business looking to increase visibility and foot traffic to your location, this is a great way to do that.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TRIMLIGHT?
There are so many benefits of Trimlight! The first obvious benefit is permanence. Trimlight eliminates the need to pay for traditional holiday lights, which gets very expensive year-after-year. It also eliminates the need to put lights up yourself, eliminating the risk of potentially harming yourself by climbing up on the roof and freeing up your time so you can spend it with family during the holidays. Another huge benefit is the aesthetic. With custom-matched channel and professional installation, these lights are designed to stay up year-round, fit within any HOA guidelines, and compliment the look of any home. Trimlight is the best value, since users are able to use the system year-round, as opposed to four weeks out of the year. Manufacturer warranty, energy-efficiency and reliable customer service are just a few more.
IS THIS APPROVED BY MY HOA?
If customers reside within an HOA, we’ve worked with hundreds of HOA’s and have a dedicated HOA representative who can submit and take care of the application. Trimlight is approved by nearly every HOA due to it’s sleek, professional design and installation. For approval for your specific HOA, please email [email protected] with the name of your HOA and we will contact you regarding the next steps!
HOW IS TRIMLIGHT INSTALLED?
Our patented channel allows us to install our lights on any roof-line or structure. We use recycled aluminum with an enamel-baked coating to prevent rust, corrosion, fading, or chipping for years to come! This channel is color-matched to any existing trim color and is installed on the underside of the eave, behind the gutters and trim. This allows it to be practically invisible during the day and unnoticeable to those passing by!
HOW DO YOU CONTROL THE TRIMLIGHT SYSTEM?
Our app is extremely user-friendly and compatible with Android and Apple devices. The app comes with over 180 presets, pre-configured holiday patterns and daily timers, which is very helpful for those who are less tech-savvy. For those who want complete customization, users can also set custom sequences and make their own color combos. The beauty of our system is you can set it and forget it.
HOW MUCH ENERGY WILL MY LIGHTS USE?
Hardly any! Each Trimlight bulb uses .6 watts of energy. A 200′ house would then use 120-400 watts. That means you would have to run your Trimlight system for nearly 3-8 hours before you’re billed $0.06 – $0.20! In comparison, incandescent Christmas lights use anywhere from 1000-1400 watts for the same amount of lights!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM?
We offer multiple products, so pricing varies dependent on the product, size, and scope of your project. For our permanent Trimlight system, exact cost varies based on size and scope of your project (i.e. linear footage, number and size of peaks, turrets, rental equipment needed etc.). For an exact approximation for your home, fill out the request form and we’ll get back to you.
DO YOU OFFER FINANCING?
We work with specialized finance companies to arrange financing for you!
DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS?
We appreciate all the sacrifice and hard work that often goes unnoticed and offer a discount to all military, first responders and teachers! For any other promotion or special event, follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

What if my Trimlight installation needs repair/replacement?
Because your Trimlight installation is a permanent fixture to your house and an enhancement to your security, most homeowner’s insurance policies should cover the cost of non-warranty repair and/or replacement, as in the case of “acts of God”, fire, vandalism, etc. It is best to contact your home insurance provider about coverage for the replacement cost of your Trimlight system. Some insurance companies even offer a discount for “security” lighting.
