Spring brings Daylight Saving Time and Colorado’s beautiful outdoor living season isn’t far behind. Get a head start on outdoor enjoyment by making sure your electrical service is ready to add to your warm weather fun.
Here are some things to consider:
Winter can take a toll on outdoor fixtures. Repair or replace any damaged porch, landscape, and motion-sensing security lights. Replace burned-out bulbs with long-lasting energy-efficient LEDs.
Make sure your deck and patio lighting suits the different areas and uses. Outdoor kitchens and grilling areas need bright task lighting for safety and convenience. Dining and lounging areas call for softer illumination. Install separate switches and/or dimmers for the control you want.
Add extra comfort and enjoyment to porches, decks, and patios. Attractive, well-placed lighting lets you control the coverage and intensity to suit your different uses and moods. Show off your landscape with lighting for features like ponds, fountains, specimen trees and other plantings. If you have a roof or pergola, you might want to add a ceiling fan for extra comfort in hot, muggy weather.
Outdoor kitchen areas may need convenience outlets, and outdoor entertainment centers will need their own power outlets.
All of your outdoor outlets should be GFCI-protected in weatherproof boxes. If they aren’t, call a licensed electrician to be sure they’re upgraded correctly.
Stairs and walkways should be lighted for safety.
