Outdoor Lighting: All You Need To Know
Everyone loves to enjoy his or her outdoor living spaces. Creating that perfect outdoor lighting is not easy, but it is essential to get the most out of the space. Therefor the lighting should be a priority, whether you're designing a covered area or an open outdoor space.
Have a lighted pathway to follow or a little lighting for a garden feature will always create a great look. This has in the past been an expensive option because you would have to hire an electrician to install wiring and connect it to light fittings. LED lighting has solved this problem. Long lasting LED light fixtures can have rechargeable batteries or even be solar powered, which means that they do not require wiring, so you don't have to hire an electrician to install them.
Traditionally, the drawback to outdoor electric lights has been that they attract bugs. To minimise the number of bugs, you may have to use unattractive yellow light bulbs, but modern LED technology has solved this problem in recent times. Ask your outdoor lighting supplier for advise about this and they can help you select LED light bulbs that don't attract bugs.
Hiring an Electrician
Always hire a qualified lighting electrician when install in electrical wiring and lights, and remember that wiring is never a DIY project. Contact an electrician if your outdoor lighting has to be connected to your mains electricity.
