The Top 3 Benefits of Exterior Lighting During the Summer

Outdoor Lighting Summer

Summer is here and it’s finally time to enjoy the great outdoors. At Schaffhouser Electric we strive to ensure that our clients can savor the beautiful weather even long after the sun goes down.

Properly installed outdoor lighting provides numerous benefits for the summer season, and the cooler months that are to come. Here are a few reasons to consider outdoor lighting:

1. Practicality:
Tennessee summers can get hot, so most of us find ourselves yearning to be outside as the sun sets, but that’s not so pleasant when you find yourself sitting in the dark. Outdoor lighting gives you the opportunity to enjoy the summer weather from early in the morning to late at night.

2. Space Maximization:
Patio and porch lights are great for entertaining, but what about the rest of your outdoor space? By adding lights throughout the yard you will maximize the usage of your outdoor space and reduce the have more room and eliminate the restrictions of being confined to one area when it begins to get dark. This means more room for grilling, games and outdoor seating.

3. Safety and Security:
Keeping outdoor spaces illuminated at night helps to eliminate safety hazards such as missing a porch step or not being able to see a wild animal in the yard, and it also allows children the opportunity to safely play outside and remain in clear vision for parents. Exterior lighting additionally provides outdoor security by preventing robberies, as burglars are not likely to gravitate towards homes where they run the risk of being easily seen.

Exterior lighting should always be done by a professional to ensure safe and proper installation. If you’re ready to make the most of your summer months, give Schaffhouser Electric a call about our outdoor lighting so that we can help determine the best solution for your property.
