Low-voltage vs. solar lighting

In our last post we talked about adding lights to your decking project.  These days, homeowners have several options when it comes to outdoor lighting.  Among the most popular choices are solar and low-voltage lighting.  These eco-friendly options can save homeowners money on their electric bills.  Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but for your deck, low-voltage lighting might be the best way to go.

The biggest advantage of solar lighting is that it costs you nothing, and you don’t have run wiring for it.  The trade-off is you don’t get a whole lot of light out of these lights, which can be dangerous on your deck if you’re trying to light steps or a cooking area.

Low-voltage lighting provides much more light, while still saving you money.  You will have to run wiring for it, but not that much considering you’re just going to your deck.  If you’re looking to add to lighting to your deck or beginning a whole new deck project with lights, contact us, and we’ll give you and attractive well-lit deck.
