Why Add Electrical Outdoor Lights To Your Home

It can be easy to add some outdoor security lighting to your house and call it good. Some of the main reasons why you should shed some light on your home’s outside spaces are:

Increase your home’s security – By adding outdoor lighting to the exterior of your home, you can increase the overall security. For instance, if you already have something like a doorbell camera, having a well-lit exterior can help you capture the images of those who come by your home. Also, a home that has clear lighting is a deterrent to burglars.

Make it easier to enjoy your yard – If you have invested in outdoor features like a bbq grill, patio area, gazebo, or other enjoyable features, it makes sense to have outdoor lighting to complement your backyard. That way, sunlight doesn’t dictate when you can enjoy your outdoor spaces.

Add overall functionality – Along with enjoyment, sometimes outdoor lighting is needed to increase the functionality of your outdoor area. Say you have a pathway leading up to your home. Rather than risk a twisted ankle by not knowing exactly where the path is in the dark, you can have your pathway lit to increase the functionality of your walkway.

Improve curb appeal – A well-lit home is also a more attractive home, as strategically placed lighting can highlight your home’s excellent features even in the evening.

Boost property value – Using our residential electrical services to add outdoor lighting to your home can boost the overall property value. As there is a clear value to you as a homeowner with outdoor lighting, that value also translates over to potential buyers when you are ready to sell.

Types Of Outdoor Lighting

There is a great variety of outdoor lighting to choose from when you are ready to tackle your outside spaces. To help inspire your electrical outdoor lighting creativity, here are the different types of lighting you can add to your home.

Deck And Patio Lights

Deck And Patio Lights
When it comes to your deck and patio, adding lighting can make it far easier to entertain outdoors. The mountain scenery around the Salt Lake City area makes outdoor entertainment completely worth adding some patio lights, and since St. George and the Southern Utah region stays warm most of the year, you can get a lot of use out of your outdoor spaces with the right lights.

The lights can be unobtrusive and built into the structure, adding light with subtly. Or, you can choose feature lights that add visual interest to your patio and deck.

Landscape Lighting

Landscape Lighting
To keep your landscaping visible and to increase your curb appeal, adding landscape lighting is essential. You can put the lighting pretty much anywhere, such as:

  • Planter lights
  • Pathway lighting
  • In-ground lights
  • Post lights
  • Tree and bush lighting

There are many different styles of landscape lighting, and if you aren’t sure what is right for your home, our electricians can help.

Outdoor Security Lights

Outdoor Security Lights
For some areas of your home—i.e., around your garage, detached shed, etc.—having permanently on outdoor security lights can keep your property safer. Also, if you are worried that having outdoor security lights on constantly may disturb your rest, you can always opt for motion detection lighting.

Motion Detection Lighting

Motion Detection Lighting
Commonly used outside around garages and backdoor entrances, motion detection outdoor lighting is an excellent way to deter those with ill-intent. This type of lighting can also help startle off nocturnal wildlife so that you don’t run into any unpleasant surprises when the dog needs to be let out after midnight.

Pool Lighting

Pool Lighting
Adding lighting to your pool can make it both safer and more enjoyable. For instance, say that you want to go for an evening swim. Finding the edge of the pool can be tricky—if not dangerous—and then as you swim, you need to be careful not to smack into a wall if your pool is not lit.

But, by simply adding a few lights to your pool, you can increase the safety and enjoyment of yourself and others.

Water Feature Lights

Water Feature Lights
Like with your pool, adding outdoor lights to your water feature can also increase safety and enjoyment. Naturally, the enjoyment of your water feature is more passive—hopefully you aren’t swimming in your pond. But if you want to sit near your water feature in the evening and relax, lighting can increase your overall enjoyment.

Also, if you have pets or young children, having lights in your water feature can help them avoid taking a tumble into the water.

Gazebo Lighting

Gazebo Lighting
Sometimes people choose to wrap their gazebos in Christmas string lights. While it can look charming, if you have incandescent string lights, it can cost you a pretty penny to keep your gazebo lit up. Also, if the cord or a light on the string becomes damaged, you are out of luck.

Rather than deal with that, you can have your gazebo professionally wired and lit with LED light bulbs, cutting your energy costs and providing you with consistent lighting.

Commercial Outdoor Lighting In St. George And Salt Lake City

Many commercial operations can also benefit from outdoor lighting. Whether you are looking to protect your storefront or want to keep your warehouses under surveillance and need light for the cameras, having the right electricians set up your outdoor lighting is essential.

As with our residential projects, our commercial customers receive our entire job bid upfront, so you never need to worry about hidden fees after our electrical work is completed.
