Advantages of Permanent Exterior Lighting

By November 14, 2022November 22nd, 2022No Comments

Are you thinking about investing in permanent outdoor lighting for your home?

There are a number of advantages in having permanent lighting, but the biggest advantage is that they are ‘permanent’.

Having outdoor lights that stay attached on your home year round, without having the hassle of installing them every year, taking them down every year, finding a spot to store every year and reinstalling them every year is a huge bonus every year.

And imagine all the time you will save in not having to find them after storing them since last winter, arguing or negotiating with loved ones in your home about who will install them this year, procrastinating about putting them up, finding a weekend to do it when you’re not busy and it isn’t too cold outside, finding the ladder, checking to make sure all the lights work, not to mention time savings if you like to change the light colour every year or couple of years …

In addition to saving time, hassle, arguments and storage space, here are some additional advantages of permanent exterior lighting:

1. Long lifespan. We provide only the highest quality of LED track lighting systems that are tested and true to our northern climate and harsh winter months. Our lights are UL certified and have met all the safety CEC requirements, with a working life of 50,000 hours.

2. Low energy, reliable and water resistant.

3. Permanent lighting is easy to maintain, requiring very little care. And if you have an issue with your lights, call us and we can help.

4. Going on vacation? No problem. Program your lights to be illuminated when you’re away to add extra security when you are not home. Connect through the cloud and turn your lights on and off from anywhere in the world.

5. Beautify your neighborhood and add to your home’s value and curb appeal.

6. Permanent exterior lighting is an easy effective fun way to liven up your house and add to the festive atmosphere for guests to your home when they arrive on Halloween, when hosting celebrations and special events and of course gatherings for the holidays.

  • Easily change colours and select from every colour under the rainbow from a smartphone app. Plus at the touch of a few buttons, adjust when you want the lights turned on and off, from the comfort and warmth of the indoors.
  • Unique design lets you animate whatever scene or style you’re trying to create

7. Manufacturer warranty. Peace of mind is guaranteed with a 5 year transferrable bumper to bumper warranty which comes standard with every purchase.

8. Unique waterproof design allows you to still be able to power wash your house.

9. Create ambient lighting. “Ambient lighting is also known as general lighting, which radiates a comfortable level of brightness without glare and allows you to see and walk safely.” (Source: Architizer) Ambient lighting also adds extra security to your home and property by reducing dim lit areas, which is especially helpful as the hours of daylight shorten. With a more brightly lit yard, you will deter unwanted foot traffic (human and animal!).

10. Create architectural lighting. “Architectural lighting is illumination for building design and function”(Source: Alcon Lighting) Program your lights to bring attention to architectural features of your home, such as dormers, gables, and more.
