Why Should You Consider Permanent Light Installation?

1. Saves You a Lot of Time

As we mentioned before, putting up holiday lights is a labor-intensive task. You have to devote a lot of time putting up these lights and taking them down. Of course, this is on top of everything else you have to do during this time of year. But this can be resolved if you have permanent lights installed. All it takes is one time installation and you’ll have lights around your home for years to come. You’ll no longer have to spend time putting lights up and down every year. This one-time installation is made especially easier if you hire an electrician to take care of this.

2. Improves Your Home’s Value

A huge benefit that comes with installing permanent lights on your home is the significant increase in your home’s value. This improvement can be especially helpful if you are planning to sell your property in the next couple of years. Most buyers love properties with permanent lighting because it can be very convenient and safe for them. All they have to do is flip a switch a couple of times a year.

3.Creates Extra Security for Your Home

It is widely recommended for you to have a well-lit environment or landscape around your home, so you can improve the security of your home. You can reduce any dim areas in your property, so no intruder can find a soft spot in your security. Permanent lighting can help prevent any vandalism or trespassing activities from occurring in your home. Additionally, your neighbors will also have the ability to spot any suspicious activities on your property. So, overall, the investment of permanent holiday lighting can reduce the risks your home may face.

When is the Best Time of Year to Install Permanent Holiday Lighting?

Honestly, you can have permanent lights installed any time of the year, but it is recommended that you schedule your installation during the warmer months. Having your permanent lighting installed around the end of summer and beginning of fall ensures that your lights will be ready by the holiday season. Additionally, the weather is still warm enough for electricians to work efficiently and you will get better pricing than calling someone a week before the holiday

We had a fantastic experience with Santella. Tony came to our house and was incredibly knowledgable, professional, and friendly. He not only knew exactly what to do, he also consulted me for decisions about how to position all my new fixtures and outlets. As a person who really cares about the details and aesthetic, I appreciated that more than I can say. A few of our projects were tricky due to our house layout, especially adding outdoor outlets, but Tony worked hard to make it all work and look good. I'm very pleased with our updated lighting/power and will definitely ask for him again next time we call Santella!

This we our first time using Santella Electric at our new home. The office personnel were responsive and friendly, and we loved the electrician who came to troubleshoot and do the repairs we need. Courteous, friendly, respectful and resolved the problem easily. He took the time to explain the problem so I could understand it.

Johan was on time, professional & explained all the work he did. Thank goodness, he had the circuit breaker’s we needed + the updated GCFI outlet for the kitchen. Now, my Mom can use her stove, oven, washer & dryer, again. SO grateful.
