Gentlemen, I have some technical questions. I’m planning to install a series of Top Dog and All-Star Mini spotlights to highlight the front facade of my house. The front of the house is especially dark at night. Light from the street light to the right is blocked by my neighbors extended 3 car garage, while light from the street light 2 doors away to the left is essentially absorbed by my other neighbor’s trees. I was thinking 2W bulbs would be sufficient to light the front of my house. I plan is to use 15 degree bulbs in the Top Dogs to uplight the brick facade of the front bedroom and the left and right garage door pillars and use 38 degree bulbs in gutter mounted All-Star Mini lights to light the gables, one in each corner of the gable. There are two gables, one over the garage and one over the bedroom which is partially hidden by the front yard oak trees (I have some lower branch trimming work to do in the coming month). My first question is how to connect the gutter mounted lights. In another forum question you recommended using Ace connectors which would mean running a separate wire for each gutter mounted light rather than daisy chaining on a single wire with 3 way connectors. My understanding is that Texas adheres to the national electrical code but I am not versed in those code requirements. There also appears to be varying opinions about how to connect low voltage wiring in gutters. For example, some gutter heating contractors use 3 way shrink wrap connectors while others don’t and some electricians on blog sites are dead set against running any wires in gutters, period, even low voltage ones. I’m not averse to running separate wires for each light, I just want to do what is best practice and in agreement with the NEC. I can envision getting into an argument about gutter wires with a building inspector when we sell the house some day in the far future. My second question relates to lighting the dormer above the front entry gate. One option is mounting a Gentle Splash flood to the gutter at the base of the dormer and potentially running yet another wire in the downspout by the front gate. A second, easier to install option (shorter ladder) would be to mount a 38 degree All-Star mini at the front right corner of the garage gable gutter and aim it up at the dormer. My concern is light loss. While ground to soffit distance is 9 and 10 feet for the 15 degree Top Dog front brick lighting, positioning the spotlight in the front corner to the gutter calculates at 13 feet to the center of the stucco of the dormer. Will a 38 degree Mini work as well as a bulkier 15 degree Top Dog for highlighting the dormer? Will a 2W bulb work or should I up it to 3W and add a diffuser lens if needed? Moving the light closer in order to reduce the 13 feet light throw would result in a shadow on the dormer from the gutter around it. I’m also planning to add 60 degree Salty Dogs for the two large oaks in the front yard. Should I use 5W bulbs for these lamps or would a subtler 3W work better? Other potential lights include a soffit mounted downlight to highlight the fountain by the front gate (yet another wire run in a gutter), a 15 degree uplight on the skinny palm tree on the right (not really visible in the photo) and a ShadowMaster lamp in the backyard garden. Thank you for your time and consideration.
