If you plan on spending more time outdoors as the weather gets nicer, now’s the time to consider calling a Genesee County electrician to add some outdoor lighting to your Grand Blanc or Flushing home. Especially if you plan on doing any outdoor entertaining, nothing helps set the ambiance quite like a well-designed outdoor lighting scheme that includes landscape lighting and strategically placed wall-mounted lights, ceiling-mounted lights (if you have a covered patio or porch), or post-mounted lights.
Want to add those string lights or bistro lights that are so popular right now to your Grand Blanc or Flushing home? One of our electricians can set up a dedicated light switch just for those lights so you don’t have to unplug them every time you want to turn them off. You can even set them up with a timer so you don’t have to switch them on and off at all if you don’t want to—you just schedule them to come on and turn off at whatever hours you choose.
If you’ve been disappointed with the solar lights that many people use in their outdoor areas, you might want to consider having low voltage lighting installed. Low voltage lighting can really enhance your outdoor areas by lighting walkways or accenting your landscaping or the architectural features of your home.
It can often be difficult to choose the right outdoor lighting. If you choose lighting that is too bright, it makes it uncomfortable for you and your guests, but if they are too dim, everyone will retreat inside as soon as it becomes too dark to see. Both situations defeat the purpose of adding outdoor lighting in the first place, which is typically to extend the number of hours you are able to enjoy the outdoors.
When it comes to outdoor floodlights that can light a large area, halogen lights used to be the go-to for outdoor lighting, but they are being surpassed by LEDs in popularity because of their longevity and energy efficiency. They are also very durable for outdoor applications.
As with any electrical project you undertake in your home, including installing outdoor lighting, you should consult with a Genesee County electrician. You want to make sure the project is done correctly so you can avoid any potentially hazardous situations, both during the installation and down the road. One of our experienced electricians can come to your Grand Blanc or Flushing home for an outdoor lighting consultation and give you an estimate for your project.
