There are numerous different types of outdoor patio lights on the market these days. All major home stores will carry a variety of different types.The most popular and energy efficient are LED lights. This type of light can be run for literally pennies per day. The cost of LED lighting has really come down and these are the types lights most recommended by lighting professionals. Solar lighting has also become more affordable but these lights are slightly less reliable than other types of lighting and often do not give off a strong light. The correct placement of solar lights is critical to their functioning and shouldn't be counted upon in cloudy or rainy areas. Solar lights shouldn't be used as safety lights.
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.
Outdoor lighting in your home is installed primarily for security purposes, but can also be selected and placed to add some mood or highlight the design of your home. Lights in the exterior areas of a home, such as backyards, front lawns and patios, can make the simplest of houses to the most charming abode in the neighborhood.
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.
