5 Tips for Outdoor Lighting

Let's face it, installing and maintaining outdoor lighting can be difficult. With so many options of bulbs to choose from and different types of fixtures, outdoor lighting installation becomes overwhelming pretty quickly. Because of this, many homeowners decide to stick with their tried-and-true landscape lighting. But, this will never look as good -– or provide the safety – as proper outdoor lighting. Mr. Electric can help! Don't settle for less - get the outdoor lighting you will be happy with!

You can't wait to see the night sky twinkling in your own backyard, but you hate walking up and down ladders. Outdoor lighting is a must for creating a beautiful and hospitable atmosphere at your home, but pulling out all those wires and reaching up high to get things appropriately lit can be exhausting. It doesn't have to be complicated! We've simplified the process to ensure you have an easy time installing new outdoor lighting. Follow these five tips on your next outdoor lighting project. Mr. Electric's electrician can help you have a beautiful outdoor space in no time in the Houston/Katy  area!

Take Time To Plan The Layout and Installation

You'll want to take some time to plan the layout of your outdoor lights before you start installing them. Take a walk around your property with a notebook to sketch out the different areas where you want to install lights and how they will look when installed. You may also want to consider the layout of your landscaping and other features on your property when choosing where to install lights.

Don't Overdo It

Too much light can be a bad thing. The glare from overly bright lights can be annoying and distracting, especially if they shine into windows or doorways where guests may be waiting. It's best to use just enough light to illuminate what you want to see without causing unnecessary glare or distraction.

When outdoor planning lighting, consider how much light you need rather than how much you want. Be sure to consider what time of day or night you will use your lights as well as the location of your home or business in relation to the sun so that you don't end up with too little or too much light in certain areas at different times of the day or during different seasons.

Choose Energy Saving Options

Energy-efficient light bulbs use less electricity, which means they cost less to buy and use less power. That can add up to significant savings over time.

Look for LED light bulbs that last longer and use even less energy than incandescent ones. They've become very affordable in recent years and are now available in various shapes, sizes, and colors.

What Are You Anticipating For Poor Weather Conditions

Think about how various weather conditions will affect your outdoor lighting. Consider installing lights that won't rust or corrode if it's a rainy season. Also, pay attention to snowfall and heavy winds; these conditions can damage solar lights. You might want to invest in lights that can withstand these elements to last longer.

Don't Forget About Safety

Most people like outdoor lighting because it makes their house look more inviting at night. However, this type of lighting also has a practical use — it can help make sure that you and your family stay safe when you are outside. Outdoor lighting improves visibility at night, but it can also deter would-be intruders from entering your property.
