Outdoor lighting – Design and Function

As the days are getting shorter and colder, it’s time to start thinking about our outdoor lighting. Having the proper outdoor lighting will add safety and security to your home, but also aesthetics and decor.

Some common sources of outside lighting are fluorescent lamps, metal halide and LED. LED are the most common choice as they are highly efficient, take no warm up time and the bulb last the longest. LED have more cost at the installation level, but you will find that you end up saving money in the long run.

The installation of outdoor lighting is something to consider as well. If you choose to have electrical fixtures on the outside of your home or along a pathway it will require the wire to run underground. If you are unsure of how your new outdoor lighting is going to connect to your home, give us a call. We would be more than happy to help.

Positioning of your new outdoor light fixtures are very important to consider as well. There are a few areas that you want to make sure are well lit!

  • House Address – Keep your house address well lit so your friends and family can easily find it.
  • Doorways – Keep all doorways lit to improve visibility, as well as keep potential burglars away.
  • Pathways – Any path leading to your home should be lit to prevent any tripping hazards.
  • Stairs – Stairs need to be well illuminated to prevent anybody falling and getting injured.

Outdoor lighting is so important to every home. With so many options to choose from it can be overwhelming. Give us a call, or visit our website at www.nightelectservice.com. We are here to help!
