Outdoor light fixtures have many benefits when it comes to improving your residential or commercial property. Here at East-West Electric we have the ability to install state of the art outdoor lighting fixtures, which will improve the security of the building. Here are a few reasons why outdoor lighting is the right choice for you:
1. Outdoor Light Fixtures Provide Peace Of Mind
Whether it is for a residential or commercial property there will be times when there is nobody there to ward off intruders. For commercial property owners, abandoned parking lots at night are a common place for people to congregate or target when it comes to thieving and vandalism. For residential property owners, going away on vacation can put a target on your home for these thieves as well. Installing a motion sensor outdoor lighting system can help to discourage unwanted trespassers at your property, and will allow you the peace of mind knowing that your property is safe and secure.
2. Outdoor Light Fixtures Will Help With Pest Control
As we have mentioned above outdoor lighting systems can deter both people and animals from destroying your property. Common pests in Clearwater Florida like raccoons, squirrels, skunks, opossums, and armadillo’s can cause severe damage to your lawn. Having motion sensor LED lights installed will startle and ward off these pests before they can cause a lot of damage. But in Florida this is not the only reason why you would want an outdoor lighting system installed. Alligators are a serious problem in Florida, and when you make a quick trip out to your car to get something, or are taking the trash out at night it will help to have your path illuminated incase there is one lurking nearby. This is especially true if you have young kids that have the freedom to play outside at night. Take extra precautions when it comes to your families safety, call East-West Electric today on (727) 771-9403 and we will inspect your property for you. We can recommend what safety systems should be in place.
3. Outdoor Light Fixtures Will Prevent Personal Injury
Whether you are a business or homeowner preventing personal injury to your family or employees should be a priority. Having a properly lighted outdoor area will prevent people from tripping over unseen hazards. As a business owner you may be open to legal consequences if a customer or employee injures himself or herself on your property. In the long run it will be cheaper to have a properly fitted outdoor lighting system so that you don’t run into these issues in the future.

4. Outdoor Light Fixtures Can Save You Money
A fully functioning outdoor lighting system can save you money on your property insurance. Insurance companies will take everything into consideration when it comes to providing you a price for your property to be insured. An outdoor lighting system will show that you are taking the security of your house or business seriously, and that burglaries and property damage are less likely to happen. All of this will translate into lower premiums.
Installing Outdoor Light Fixtures
Unless you have extensive experience in electrical installation you will need a professional electrical contactor to install an appropriate outdoor lighting system. This becomes even more apparent if a new electrical wiring system needs to be installed as well, which will increase the cost compared if you have an old system that just needs upgrading. The cost of installing an outdoor lighting system will depend on the following:
The type of the fixture
Outdoor lighting systems come in many different shapes and sizes. Some are more suited to safety and security whereas others are to increase the natural beauty of a home. From patio lights, porch lights, solar lights, LED lights, these factors will have to be considered.
The current electrical system in place
If the job requires installing a brand new system it will take more hours, particularly if we have to dig into the ground to install wiring from the home. Simply upgrading a system is easier and will take less time.
What electrical system you will be using
There are options if you would like the outdoor lighting to be linked to your homes power supply or if they will be self sufficient through solar power. This needs to be taken into consideration as the solar powered lights can be both cheaper to install with less wiring and financially beneficial in the long run.

Motion sensor outdoor lights
If you want to increase the security of your home you can have the motion sensor outdoor lights installed. This will save you money in the long run as the lights won’t be on constantly. But they will cost more to set up.
