3 Benefits of Outdoor Lighting Installation

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014 by Kurt St. John


Have you recently driven up to your home at night, and thought that it looked a bit… dark, bleak, a touch unfriendly? You probably don’t think much about the exterior of your house during the evening, when you’re safe inside. But the addition of new outdoor lighting for a New Haven house can offer many benefits, especially if you work with a skilled contractor who knows the ideal lights to install and the right design to make your home safer and more attractive. In this post we’ll look at 3 of the many benefits you can receive from upgrading your outdoor lighting with new installation.

Call PowerHouse Home Services to learn about our lighting services. We can enhance your home with indoor and outdoor lighting, flood lights, and landscape lighting. Whatever your illumination needs, our skilled team can provide it.

3 Advantages of Outdoor Lighting

  1. Safety: Poorly lit walkways, driveways, decks, and patios can turn into safety hazards for your family and especially for your guests. If you often find yourself almost tripping or running into objects when you movie outside your house at night, then you probably need to have experts come in and create an appealing lighting scheme that will guide the way without creating ugly glares that will reflect into your house. You will also have better protection from crime, since studies have shown that thieves and vandals are 30% less likely to pester houses that have effective outdoor lighting schemes.
  2. Increased use of outdoor recreation areas: If you have a pool, spa, patio, verandah, or simple outdoor relaxation area, you don’t have to retreat indoors each time the sun goes down. With an excellent and appealing outdoor lighting scheme, you can get the most from the luxuries around your home, no matter what time the sun sets.
  3. Attractive curb appeal: Let’s go back to the beginning, when you drove up to a shadowy and dour-looking home. With outdoor lighting, you can make your home inviting and attractive to everyone (except criminals). Your home will make a startling positive first impression on visitors, and this will enhance the way they view the inside as well. With the right lighting, you can create the look of a refurbished home without spending money on extensive construction projects. The appealing lighting design will also raise your home’s market value.
