4 Benefits of Installing Outdoor Lighting


Outdoor lighting is more than just a way to make your home look nice at night. It can increase the safety of your home and boost your curb appeal. Let Integra Electrical give you four reasons why you should install or upgrade the lights outside your home this year. In addition, you should let Integra Electrical install or upgrade your outdoor lights so you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful summer nights ahead in Indianola and Des Moines.

Here are four benefits outdoor lighting can provide for you and your home.


One way to use outdoor lighting is to enhance your home’s appearance. When the lights turn on at night, they can help highlight the architectural features of your home and give it a good bit of appeal. If you own a commercial property, you can use multicolored outdoor lights to give a unique style and attract customer attention.


If your home has a patio, deck, or other outside space, having adequate outdoor lighting is essential. The evening and night are great times to relax outdoors and enjoy having company over. By installing lights outside, a family gathering or party won’t have to end just because the sun goes down. Perfect for those summer get-togethers!

Safety and security.

Did you know homes without outdoor lighting are popular burglary targets? This is because the darkness makes it easier to avoid being seen. Outdoor lights help deter potential burglars by brightening up the outside of your home, making it harder for burglars to hide. It will also make it easier for you to move around your yard at night and avoid accidental slips or falls. With outdoor lights, that means no more groping around in the darkness while outside your home.

Increased curb appeal.

No matter what kind of home you own, outdoor lighting can help accentuate the positives. Outdoor lighting of any kind can also help boost your home’s value when it comes time to sell. Potential buyers will appreciate the extra safety precautions and the ability to use outdoor space longer. If you put your trust in Integra’s electricians, we can use lighting to show off your home’s best features.
