Top 5 Electrical Upgrades For Summer

Landscape Lighting

Summer is a great time to make electrical upgrades around your home to improve safety, comfort and convenience. Here are a few of the more popular electrical upgrades to consider.

1. Landscape and Security Lighting

Landscape lighting can be as simple as a new entryway fixture to more elaborate path lighting and motion detecting security lighting. Filling in the dark areas around your home will provide a welcoming environment for guests and increase your home’s curb appeal.

2. Standby Generator

Extended power outages have become more common, leading many homeowners to install backup power generators. Today’s backup generators are reliable, safe and efficient. When the power goes out the generator automatically turns on and uses your home’s natural gas line to power all of your lighting and appliances.

3. Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are a great way to increase comfort by improving the airflow in your home. While they don’t actually cool the air they help your cooling system work more efficiently by distributing the cooled air down to the living space.

4. Whole House Surge Protection

By installing surge protection at the service panel you can protect your entire home from damage caused by power spikes and lightening.

5. LED Lighting

LED lighting offers many advantages over conventional lighting, including low power consumption, long life, and lower heat output.
