Alpharetta Electrician on the latest home electrical project trends
Have you been considering updating or upgrading your home? Besides the typical projects like repainting, bathroom, and kitchen remodels, why not contact a trusted local Alpharetta electrical contractor to explore updating and improving some of your homes’ electrical systems. There are many options to make your home more enjoyable, and in this article, we will explore what is trending in home electrical projects.
Landscape lighting provides a warm ambiance when you are home and additional security when you are at home and away. Outdoor lighting is perfect for showing off your landscaping work after dusk. Some examples include lighting to highlight flowers, pathways, and patio decks. Area lights are often used to show off plants and provide additional security. In ground lighting around the foundation of your home also illuminates plants and bushes from behind. In addition, accent lights can be used to light walkways, patios, and other gathering places for those summer social gatherings.
Home automation options have become more readily available and affordable in recent years. Homeowners are now able to control nearly all aspects of electrical systems via smartphone applications. These include the ability to automate control of both interior and exterior home lighting systems when home and away. Residential hvac systems can be programmed and controlled to reduce power consumption when you are away and have your home’s temperature brought back to the optimal level upon return. Motion Sensing lights are a great option for the interior and exterior of the home and result in financial savings and environmental benefits with the additional control capabilities.
Whole House Generators
Spring and summer time storms along with fallen trees that lead to power outages are not an “if” but a “when” in the Metro Atlanta area. Some of the smaller generators will provide temporary power for the essentials but a whole house generator, while not cheap, will automatically turn on if power shuts off in your area. With an expected power loss to a few million Americans every week this option may be worth the investment.
Electrical Charging Stations
The evolution and increase in range of electric cars in recent years leads us to believe that electric vehicles will soon be the new normal. Garages with electric charging capabilities are a trend in new home construction. For homeowners in older homes some electrical rewiring and installation will be often be required but the financial savings on fuel and the environmental benefit over the long term make this option a smart investment.
