How to Get the Most Out of Your Outdoor Lighting This Winter

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

New England is notoriously cold and dark during the winter, with the most challenging months being November through February. As such, good outdoor lighting isn’t just for outdoor décor, it’s a necessity. Whether you use motion-sensor lights to illuminate your way back into your home or need steady light to see spots of ice and snow in your driveway, good outdoor lighting during the winter helps keep you safe and secure. But no one wants a spotlight emanating from their home, which is where outdoor lighting design and installation in Somerville, MA become important. Working with professionals who have experience in both design and installation of outdoor lighting is the key to creating a well-lit outdoor atmosphere, so call the people you can count on: FB Electrical Services.

Ways Outdoor Lighting Helps

As mentioned above, outdoor lighting helps you see during the darkest part of the year. But it can also help achieve a warm, comfortable and inviting look to your home. Lighted walkways both illuminate the walkway and provide a level of security by seeing who (or what) may be walking around your property. You can easily incorporate holiday lights into an existing design, and if you are looking to install new outdoor lighting, winter allows you to do so without disturbing plants as they are dormant this time of year.

If you already have outdoor lighting, you can help maintain it by doing some of the following:

  • Replace burned-out bulbs on a timely basis
  • Remove leaves and other yard debris that may be around the lighting fixtures and bulbs
  • Re-bury any cables or wiring that should be in the topsoil
  • Clean dirty lenses
  • Adjust any fixtures that have shifted due to weather, snow, etc.
  • Cut back or remove any plant growth that may be interfering with your lighting

Good outdoor lighting can provide safety and security while making your home more aesthetically appealing.

Why You Should Use Professionals for Your Outdoor Lighting Design

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

There are few better or more cost-effective ways to make the outside of your home and the surrounding property more attractive than with a new outdoor lighting design. New lighting will give your house a bright and fresh look, and landscape and walkway lighting will make the recreation areas around the home inviting and safer.

However, you should entrust the work of creating and installing outdoor lighting in Cambridge, MA to professionals. You can only reap the full benefits of an extensive redesign with the assistance of electrical experts with a background in creating effective lighting schemes for homes. One of the best places to turn when you want a new outdoor lighting design is FB Electrical Services.

Professionals will deliver the new lighting design you want

Setting up outdoor lighting isn’t as simple as hanging a few strands of lights, as you would for temporary holiday decorating. It involves making numerous important decisions and then installing the lights, electrical lines, and control devices that will make the system efficient, effective, and most important of all, attractive.

Only professionals have the full range of skills, as well as the equipment, to deliver the level of work necessary to realize the lighting scheme that you want. Many lighting designs depend on motion sensor-technology (popular for homeowners who want lighting for increased security), and others are created specifically with energy savings in mind. All of these installations take training and technical knowledge that you will only find in electricians.

You also need to rely on professionals to get the look right. Poor outdoor lighting installations can look glaring and ugly; trained designers know the right types of lamps to use and the ideal placements to create a spread of illumination that is both bright and attractive. The lighting professionals will take your general ideas and turn them into something they can realize practically—and even improve upon.
