These lights are very attractive and since they are designed for installing outside homes, they are very fashionable and are designed with high quality brass, nickel, and other eye catching metallic or wooden finishes. Since they are kept on for a long period especially after sunset, they tend to contribute to the energy bills significantly, so if you are sensitive to electric bills, then you need to buy a product that consumes less electricity. These usually come with a form of protection that protects them from moisture or any outdoor damage. A huge variety of outdoor ceiling lights is available on the market, or even on the Internet, so selecting the right one for these houses is not difficult.
One of the places in your house that constantly need security lighting is the garage. Make sure this area is amply covered with lighting at night. For a small garage, a single light at the center of the entrance would suffice. But for a 2-car garage or bigger areas, you should install some more. The sides of your house also need proper illumination for a similar purpose. In addition, sensors in your lighting system in these areas are a good idea if you'd like to save energy. These sensors automatically activate your lighting system when programmed according to time or when motion is detected.
There are several types of lamps available for use in low wattage outdoor lighting kits. LED, incandescent, low voltage fluorescent and halogen lamps all provide soft, non-glaring light. Halogen bulbs offer excellent color rendering, are highly efficient and typically last about 4000 hours. Low voltage fluorescent bulbs use little energy and are a good choice if the lights will be on for more than 4 hours at a time.
Water proofing and correct grounding comprises basic steps to appropriate installation of outdoor lighting. Certain permits need to be attained and particular codes need to be compiled before installing the outdoor lights. Unlike the installation of low-voltage lights alongside the walkway, specialized outdoor lighting requires the help of a professional electrician. Once the process of installation is complete, inspection is necessary to avoid any hazards and risks.
