Add Landscape Lighting to your Grand Blanc Home for Beauty and Safety

If there’s anything that makes an outdoor area really stand out, it’s landscape lighting. Adding lighting to your yard, deck, patio, or walkway can transform the look and feel of your outdoor space, making it more attractive, and also more functional. With landscape lighting, you can highlight special features of your home’s exterior or landscaping using spotlights. You can create the ambiance you want, or you can make a space that was previously unusable in evenings into one that is perfect for outdoor entertaining. The options are limitless!

Two common choices for outdoor lighting are LEDs on a 120-volt system, or low-voltage lighting. Both have advantages and disadvantages that your electrician can discuss with you. For example, LED bulbs are long lasting, but may not have the warm glow you want in landscape lighting. Low-voltage lighting is safe and gives off the soft color quality most people want in outdoor lighting, but since their wires are buried just below the surface of the ground, they can potentially be damaged by animals or yard tools.

Exterior lighting can also be an important safety feature for your home. It is well documented that burglars are deterred by well-lit homes, so adding lighting to the exterior of your home is a smart investment. In addition, installing outdoor security lighting means that you won’t have to come home to a dark house any longer. Security lighting can be installed with motion sensors, dusk-to-dawn fixtures, or a combination of both to keep your electric bill down, while still keeping your home secure at night. Our expert electricians can discuss the various options of security lights with you to decide what makes sense for your house.

Given the extreme weather we can experience in Genesee County, it’s important that you have an experienced electrician, like those at Electrician Express, help you set up your outdoor lighting so it can withstand the elements.
