While we might be in the middle of a chilly winter, it is no secret we are all looking forward to warmer weather and being able to spend time outdoors with family and friends again (fingers crossed!).
Winter is a great time to plan and get all your summer wish list ideas in order. Making the most of our Geelong homes and backyards for as long as possible can require well placed home exterior lighting solutions.
Alfresco areas, desks, pools and pool decks can be better utilised well into those balmy summer evenings with effective lighting and power access. Choosing the most suitable lighting temperature for our homes in Geelong, the Surf Coast and the Bellarine Peninsula is also something to consider. You might prefer a ‘warm’ lighting option over ‘cool’ lighting? Advice from our experienced local electricians can certainly be beneficial here.
Permanent exterior lighting and exterior power points are great to have access to. These are far safer (and less messy) than awkward extension cords run from inside to outside.
Home Exterior Lighting and Security
Exterior home lighting can extend the time you spend outside. It can also provide a warm welcome for guests to your front door and provide an added layer of security and protection for your family.
Lighting paths to and from high traffic areas (front and back doors, utility areas, clothes lines and garages) can reduce the risk of falls and potential injuries. Sensor and/or security lighting around the front and back doors of your home can also deter potential intruders.
Our qualified local electricians at Smart Green Electrical can assist with all your home security needs. Having a good quality security system installed can help to avoid break-ins. It can also reduce your home insurance premiums. Our team can advise on and install the right home security system, including security cameras and lighting, for your specific needs.
Don’t wait for an accident or home security issue to arise. Make the decisions now to upgrade or install new home exterior lighting now and feel safe and secure when venturing outside at night.
