Here are the top 5 electrical projects to get consider when upgrading your home for summer, so you can relax and enjoy the season safely!

Summer outdoor area in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Outdoor Landscape Lighting

From a single spot light to an entire yard landscaping light project, outdoor lighting can help your landscaping will come to life after dark. In addition to keeping your landscaping beautiful no matter the time of day, outdoor lighting can also help keep your home safer by discouraging intruders from considering your home.

Motion Activated Security Lights

Installing motion activated security lights can keep you home safer in the summer months when everyone is spending more time outside. It would be beneficial to install motion activated lights to keep your property, family and valuables safe.

Ceiling Fans for Porches or Pergolas

Summer days sometimes leave us hoping for a breeze to cool down, and a ceiling fan may be the only relief available. Installing a ceiling fan in your outdoor living area will help keep you and your guests more comfortable. Fans come in a variety of styles, and some are designed specifically for use in outdoor spaces.

Indoor Ceiling Fans

Similar to outdoor spaces, sometimes indoor areas become too hot to remain comfortable in. Circulating the air inside of your home is one of the easiest ways to stay cool this summer. Installing ceiling fans may help cut down on your utility bills too.

Dimmer Switches

By installing dimmer switches, you can change the whole mood of a room instantly with a quick adjustment to your dimmer switch. You can turn the switch up to brighten the room when you need to get work done, or turn the switch down to create a relaxing ambiance.
