Outdoor Lighting Installation In Charleston
Protect your family, welcome visitors and increase your home’s curb appeal by adding professionally installed security or landscape lighting to your property in Charleston, Mt. Pleasant, Summerville, North Charleston, and surrounding areas. Low-voltage lamps and thoughtfully positioned floodlights can highlight walkways and garden features while giving your property an unmistakable wow factor.
Benefits of Installing Security Lighting
Whether it’s a neighbor’s cat or a prowler lurking in the shadows, outdoor motion-detection lighting can alert you to suspicious activity. Wall-mounted floodlights and motion-activated fixtures are ideal for securing the perimeter of your property. They’re also useful for illuminating high-traffic areas where extra lighting is needed after dark, such as a garage entrance, shed, deck or driveway basketball court. While security lighting generally functions as a crime deterrent, floodlights can also highlight your home’s facade or up-light specimen trees. For something a little more subtle, consider low-voltage landscape lights and luminaries.
Dramatic Landscape Lighting for Your Home and Garden
Landscape lighting systems feature a network of specialized fixtures that are connected to a central step-down transformer that supplies low-voltage current. Each 12- to 15-volt fixture is linked to the subpanel by underground wires or weatherproof conduit. This modular design allows your electrician to position lights across your yard while concealing them within the landscape. While homeowners and landscape architects typically prefer the clarity and intensity of halogen bulbs, many other options are available. Landscape fixtures come in numerous configurations designed for achieving specific lighting effects. Here are some of the most popular options.
- Highlight the perimeter of gardens and walkways with decorative path lamps.
- Enhance the safety of your property with step lights embedded in the stair risers.
- Outline the edges of decks and driveways with ground-level well lights.
- Brighten the facade of your home with strategically placed wash lights.
- Up-light trees and backlight statues using high-powered floods or spots.
- Safely illuminate ponds, fountains and water features with submersible fixtures.
