How to Choose the Right Outdoor Lighting

With so many different outdoor lighting options to choose from, making a decision can feel overwhelming. The process doesn't have to be mystifying, however. While all outdoor lighting provides security for your home, there are four basic types of outdoor lighting that serve different purposes.

  • Flood Light - These wide-span lights are ideal for covering a large area. Often you'll see them installed on garage doors to light up the driveway. While mostly used for security, they also help make large outdoor areas of the home safer at night.
  • Landscape Lights - Make your home shine with landscape accent lighting! These decorative lights come in a wide variety of styles and really bring out the beauty of your landscaping, architectural and water features, and pools.
  • Motion Sensor Lights - These lights detect infrared waves that radiate from moving objects. When a warm object enters its field of view, it automatically turns on. Like a flood light, a motion sensor light provides added security to dark areas of the home. Use these in areas that don't need a constant light source.
  • Spotlights - A spotlight is a great choice for highlighting key areas of your home. Show off trees, statues, and architectural details with this type of lighting. Or make your home’s pool or water feature sparkle.

When to Call for Outdoor Lighting Repair

Lights designed for outdoor use should last a long time without much maintenance. If a bulb burns out a lot sooner than expected, that could indicate faulty wiring or improper installation. Instead of simply replacing the bulb, have the system inspected by a qualified landscape lighting contractor to make sure there are no deeper issues.

If lights are flickering, dimming, or shut off completely, there's probably a connection issue. These usually occur when water gets into a connection that hasn't been installed correctly. For instance, if an unqualified installer uses electrical tape to cover a connection instead of using a correctly sized connector, water can seep into the connection and cause a short.

Not only can poorly connected wires short out the system, but it also poses a dangerous shock risk. If you find connection issues and water has gotten into the wiring, make sure you get the system inspected for corroded wires and sockets.

In addition to outdoor lighting repair, we can also offer a whole house safety inspection to ensure all your electrical connections are in the best shape possible.
