Summer nights are here and it is time to create another summer full of memories that you will cherish forever with friends, neighbors and family. The nights are a perfect time to enjoy the cooler summer weather with the people you enjoy the most. While enjoying a backyard barbecue or stargazing, you want to be able to see what you are doing. Walking around a dark yard is an accident waiting to happen. An electrician in Los Angeles is here to explain the difference between solar and electric landscape lights. At H Electric, we pride ourselves on high quality work that will leave you satisfied.
Solar lights are great for placing some quick light around your yard. They are easy to install and can be placed along your sidewalks and around your deck. However, they cannot be placed in areas where there is a great deal of shade without interfering with their ability to properly light up. Solar lights need at least 8 hours of direct sunlight every day to recharge. Without adequate sunlight, the lights will fail to stay lit throughout out the evening.
Electric lights require a little more work up front, but they are much more reliable and tend to be brighter than their solar counterparts. The lights can be placed in shaded areas without worrying they won’t get enough sunlight to work. You will need to have an electrician familiar with Los Angeles electrical intricacies complete the electric light installation. Your electrician will wire the set of lights directly into your home’s electric panel. You can opt to have the electrician install a timer that will control when the lights turn off or on or you can have a standard light switch installed that gives you complete control of turning the lights off and on. Give H Electric a call today and schedule your outdoor lighting installation.
