Outdoor lighting plays a critical role in the safety and security of our homes, businesses and community buildings like schools and churches. Yet, it is often an overlooked area in new construction or remodeling. Outdoor lighting is also a big energy guzzler since they are on from early evening until sunup.
So here are some outdoor lighting tips from the lighting experts at Superior Lighting
Use appropriate lighting design for your type of building. Don’t just install some generic wall-packs. Lighting designs changed so much in the past few years and there are many options now available for outdoors.
Convert your existing outdoor lightings to LED and save. Most energy saving you see on the “Lighting Facts” labels when you buy light bulbs are based on average use of 3 hours a day. With outdoor lighting, the savings are much more since they usually are on for much more hours. Superior Lighting has many “LED Retrofit Kits” available.
Use appropriate “Vandal Resistant” light fixtures. They will protect the light fixtures from being vandalized and product them from falling balls, etc.
Have nice landscaping you want to highlight around your home? Use LED outdoor spotlights designed to provide a precise beam pattern, dispensing narrow beams of crisp light perfect for spotlighting landscaping and architectural details.
Are you proud of the architectural design of your home or building? Use LED wall washers to highlight your building. Perfect for historic buildings, churches, synagogues and for any building with great traditional, historic or modern architecture details.
