Top Summertime Electrical Projects for Your Home – Part 1

Summer gives us the wonderful opportunity to enhance and upgrade our homes. In the last few years, creating comfortable and convenient outdoor living spaces has been trending in America. Electrical work is usually needed to support the additional electrical demand of appliances, electronics, and lighting that will enhance a home’s outdoor areas as summarized below.

Ceiling Fans

Adding ceiling fans and accent lighting will make your deck or patio more appealing during the warmer nights.

Entertainment System

You can enhance the outdoor areas of your home by adding an entertainment system featuring a large screen TV, stereo, and several speakers. You and your guests will be able to catch a big game or concert while enjoying a pleasant summer evening.

Outdoor Kitchen

Hosting a barbecue outdoors can generate a lot of fun for all involved. Building an outdoor kitchen and dining area featuring new appliances, electronics, and lighting will raise outdoor parties to a new level. This space typically needs dedicated circuits for a refrigerator and stove.

Outdoor Lighting

Create ambiance in your outdoor spaces by creatively adding accent lighting that highlights the most beautiful architectural features of your home. Landscaping, trees, and walkways can be accentuated by well-placed lighting fixtures.  In addition, adding lighting can let your family take full advantage of decks, gazebos, patios, and pergolas during the warm summer evenings.

Pool Area Lighting

Lighting the pool and the area surrounding it will increase the safety of your family and guests. A safer environment will let everyone have more fun. Creative lighting using a variety of colors can also beautify the atmosphere.  

Security System

Installing a home security system supported by outdoor lighting activated by motion detectors can help make your family safer and more secure.
