NiteLites of Kansas City shares on the importance of outdoor lighting during the winter months.
Outdoor lighting plays a big role in the curb appeal, safety and security of your home or business year-round, but is perhaps the most important in the winter months. The sun goes down much earlier during winter and night persists longer than any other season. Outdoor lighting provides safety and security during the nightly hours of your home or business property. Another aspect of outdoor lighting is how it boosts the curb appeal of the property.
Winter in the central United States certainly brings snow, ice and other safety concerns for home and business owners. Outdoor lighting installed by a professional outdoor lighting contractor is a great way to illuminate changes in elevation and icy spots you may not have seen otherwise. Using path lights, spot lights and flood lights, walkways around the perimeter of the property will be properly illuminated to prevent unnecessary falling hazards. Driveways illuminated with path or paver lights can be easily seen to guide you safely to the door to your home or business.
A home or property with outdoor lighting is much less likely to become a target of a burglary. Alarm systems and motion sensor lights are great to spook criminals away, but only after they have already identified your property as a target. Professional outdoor commercial and residential lighting are set on astronomical timers, which not only saves energy but also makes certain your lights are working during the hours of darkness for your specific location.
Winter can be the most beautiful time of year for landscapes of homes and businesses. With the days being so brief, a property can lose curb appeal the moment the sun sets in the early evening. By illuminating your property with solid brass and copper landscape lights, you awaken a magical winter landscape that instantly boosts curb appeal. The beauty of the winter in the daytime is magnified by the illuminated property at night. The architecture will never look so extraordinary than when illuminated by energy saving LED spot or well lights.
