Outdoor lights improve safety
A dark property poses several safety risks for you, your family and visitors. When walkways and stairs are not lit properly, it’s hard to see where you’re going and spot any obstacles in your path. Falls can occur, which can be severe. Another benefit of exterior lighting, besides aesthetic qualities, are security and safety. It stands to reason that if your home is illuminated at night, it is less likely to be vandalized or burglarized
Installing walkway and stair lights to the exterior of your home can improve visibility after dark. There are many options available for lighting the walkways of your home, ranging from decorative fixtures to lights that blend in with your landscape.
Path lights can be installed along your walkways and come in a variety of styles and finishes to suit your tastes. Post lights are another option that will provide adequate lighting when installed around your walkways, while coordinating with the décor of your home. Driveway lights can also be added, not only to keep your family and visitors safe, but to help drivers better see the boundaries.
Outdoor LED lighting
A system that has been laid out correctly will not have these problems, especially with the newer LED technology that has consumed the low voltage lighting industry. The LED fixtures that we use are cast bronze and have a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. These bulbs are rated for 40,000 hours of run time.
When most people think of LED, the first thing that comes to mind is a bright blue tone. But, the professional landscape lighting manufacturers have developed the LEDs to provide a perfect natural light that is indistinguishable from that of a halogen bulb, you also might want to look into different LED lights also, for example these outdoor LED floodlights.
Additionally, LEDs use approximately 90 percent less energy than halogen, which means you will probably never notice a difference on your power bill.
If you want to install ambient or security lighting in the outdoors, you should call in an electrician. An electrical contractor can help you thread wiring to the outside if there was none before.
We will ensure that the wiring is properly grounded for the outdoors. In addition, we can help you choose lighting that’s rated for the outdoors, so it will withstand the elements.
