If you’ve been putting off upgrading or installing outdoor lighting because you’ve been worried about the cost, you may want to reconsider. Here are three reasons why outdoor lighting isn’t as costly as you might think.
NEWER TECHNOLOGY MEANS LOWER COSTS
With LED technology now the standard, your money for outdoor illumination will go a lot further. Not only will the monthly operating cost be lower due to the minimal power used by LED lights, but the cost of LED bulbs and fixtures has also been dramatically reduced in the last few years. This means that you can get a lot more outdoor lighting for your money!
RETURN ON INVESTMENT
Good outdoor lighting can increase the value of your home in two ways. First, when you go to sell your home, good outdoor lighting will make your home stand out in a crowd and can make all the difference in the mind of a buyer. Second, and perhaps most importantly, outdoor lighting gives you extra living space that you can use and enjoy on a regular basis with friends and family. Who doesn’t enjoy sitting out on the patio on a warm summer night with the lights perfectly illuminating a great conversation with friends? Why wait any longer than you have to?
PAYING OVER TIME
Professional installation means that you can have your designer break the project into smaller phases so that you can budget a smaller amount and spread completion throughout a timeline. These phases mean that you can spend more time with friends and family under a perfectly lit patio and less time worrying about your budget.
