 Outdoor Lighting San Antonio

You work hard to make sure your yard and landscaping look inviting and attractive. So why would you want to let that disappear every single night at sunset? Nothing beats a summer evening on the patio in San Antonio or surrounding areas the stars, the fireflies and the fresh air—but when the sun begins setting earlier you don’t want to lose your patio time to darkness.

An outdoor living space that includes an outdoor kitchen and seating provides another place to gather. Busy families, with working parents and kids participating in extracurricular activities, often don’t make it to the dinner table until after dusk. Outdoor kitchens and eating areas become useless unless properly lit. Task lighting, which usually functions by a switch as needed, provides visibility to areas designed for cooking and dining. Beyond your desk, porch or patio, landscape lighting can be used to create ambience and add beauty to the environment.

You can also use light for safety. Landscape lights around your home can act as a deterrent to burglars and vandals. When you or your family members need to leave your home in the dark, lights can illuminate any bumps or uneven ground in your path, preventing falls. If you have a pool, outdoor lighting fixtures can cut down on the risk of accidents. These lights can work by switch or timer and photocell that cue them to come on at dusk and off at the designated time.

You may also be wondering what types of lighting will Good Electric LTD incorporate into our design. There are a few such as:

Pathway Lights – These lights create illumination for the walkways leading to, from, and around your home. They come in many different finishes, such as brass or molded plastic as well as styles. This is good for both front and back yards as they can be both functional and stylish. Solar lights are an environmental and economical option for your pathway lights.

Spot and Bullet Lights – This style, which is commonly used with low voltage lighting, can accent special features of your landscape. These are generally pointed at something like a plant or decoration on your home. These lights are great for identifying specific features of your home.

Box Lights – Box lights are generally used to illuminate large areas, such as decks or patios. They often use mercury vapor or metal halide bulbs and are mostly found with line voltage. These can be especially beneficial when hosting parties or having dinner outside.

For all of these landscape lighting installations, you may be wondering if you should choose LED lights. Light-emitting diodes or LED light bulbs cost about eight times more than halogen bulbs, however, LED bulbs won’t need to be replaced until they’ve reached about 40,000 hours of use. With regular use, this comes to about twenty years. Meanwhile a standard bulbs last about two years on average. In other words, in the long run, LEDs are dramatically more cost-effective.

Another consideration is the look of the LED light. LEDs have a cool light temperature, appearing more blue. If you want an LED bulb with a warmer temperature you’ll need one that’s about 3,000 kelvins.
