Patio Lighting

Lighting your outdoor living space can make your time outside more enjoyable. Most people don’t realize just how much impact proper lighting has. With so many different styles, sizes, colours, and placements, lighting fixtures can completely transform your covered outdoors living space.

Some of the most popular electrical lighting options that can be used to brighten up your outdoor living space include lamp posts, lanterns attached to your home, hanging lanterns, string lighting, fire pits, candles, tiki torches, surrounding garden lights, and more. Even something as simple as pot lights can really make all the difference when it comes to properly lighting your space. If you need help illuminating your outdoor space with patio lighting, call the licensed electricians at Expert Electric.

Garden Lighting

Garden lighting can be the perfect way to create an intimate or romantic setting for your outdoor living space. The best types of garden lights are easy to operate, affordable, and designed to let you appreciate your outdoor space even more than you already do. With a wide range of materials and designs to choose from, choosing the right garden lighting for your particular outdoor space has never been easier. If you think that the solar power garden lights won’t be bright enough for your space, consider using electric power that is connected to your home directly or to a voltage transformer.

Ceiling Fan Installation

Most people probably wouldn’t think about putting a ceiling fan in their outdoor living space, but a ceiling fan installation is a great way to keep the air flow in your covered space at a comfortable temperature. Using a ceiling fan in the summertime can be very effective at lowering the apparent temperature by making use of evaporation. Make sure to put your fan in reverse for a downward airflow that will cool your covered outdoors living space in no time. For an extra touch, consider getting an outdoor fanlight to both cool and brighten up your space.
