Let it Snow on Landscape Lighting

As we enter the season of snow in Chicagoland, you may feel less inclined to have outdoor lighting installed on your property. We are here to share why it is okay to have landscape lighting installed in the winter months and why changes in the weather should not discourage your decision to install lights along your driveway, pathway, patio, or landscape!

Why install outdoor lighting in the winter months?

In most Outdoor Lighting Perspectives cases, we install IP65 rated LED landscape lights. These lights are both durable and energy efficient. They hold up against all elements from rain to snow, will withstand temperature changes, and are easily installed no matter the season! The external components of this lighting style will keep water, dust, salt, and other materials from penetrating internal technology. For an extra step in protecting your outdoor lighting equipment, you can add a reasonably priced maintenance plan that will provide you with extra comfort as Outdoor Lighting Perspectives Chicago makes sure that your landscape lighting is in the best shape.

Who does outdoor lighting benefit during winter?

Now that you have a better understanding of the technology that can be used, let’s review why outdoor lighting is useful during the winter months. With less daylight available, families need a safe way to enjoy winter weather in the evenings. With lighting around your landscape, you are free to enjoy sledding down the hills of Naperville, building a snowman on your lawn in Schaumburg, or making snow angels with your children in Barrington. With the use of outdoor lighting, you can take advantage of the evening hours in Geneva by inviting the neighbors over for a potluck dinner and a well-lit snowball fight! You can also add patio lighting that can withstand snowy Chicago winters while you enjoy that hottub on the deck!
