Gervais Electric, Inc. understands the many benefits of installing lighting in an outdoor space and wants to take this time to share some important factors to take into consideration when adding the perfect light to any backyard.
IMPORTANT TIPS AND FACTORS
Before choosing fixtures and features to light your outdoors, whether on your stylish patio or other areas of your outdoor living space, it’s important to research the variety of lights and features available in order to determine what will best suit the needs of your home and property. There are a number of factors and considerations you should make.
First, let’s take into consideration the wide range of lighting fixtures that are available on the market today. Our team recommends the use of a variety of fixtures throughout your outdoor living space with specific lighting designated to each area and space. From accent lighting and ambient lighting, to task lighting, the choices are diverse and many. The prime focus of installing outdoor lighting, in addition to providing needed light, is to add an aesthetic appeal to your outdoor space, while also adding value to your home and property.
Further considerations when installing lighting for your outdoor space should be selecting proper controls. Whether sensors, timers or dimmers, or even the installation of photocells that run on timers and solar energy together, choosing the right controls is vital. With the use of controls, you are able to save on the amount of electricity used and on the overall cost of electricity usage. You’ll also enjoy a reduction in your monthly utility bills.
Another important aspect to consider is choosing the proper size fixture for your outdoor living space. This is important because you not only want to ensure you have enough lighting to cover your space and deliver the perfect output and proportion, but you also want to ensure that the fixtures are aesthetically appealing as well.
Finally, it’s very important when choosing your stylish new outdoor lighting that you select fixtures constructed with weather resistant materials. This is especially important so as to ensure that your newly installed lighting can perform at optimal levels continuously, without interruption, regardless of the weather conditions. No matter the season, winter, spring, summer or fall, and no matter the weather outside, you want to ensure that your lighting can perform at peak levels and not have its performance hindered by the outdoor elements.
