One of the best ways to give your home a facelift is by installing LED soffit lighting. Recessed soffit lighting gives your home an elegant and stylish look while providing added security lighting. Until recently, recessed fixtures haven’t been a great fit for those wanting an outdoor lighting upgrade due to their height, weight and overall size. LED’s, however, are sleek and are the perfect solution to retrofitting on an older home with soffit lighting.
Exterior LED Soffit Lights MakeYour Home Look Amazing At Night
Recessed soffit lights (pot lights) create a look and ambience that you just can’t get with other lighting. Electricians in Edmonton recommend using a mix of the various outdoor lighting options to highlight different areas of your home’s exterior. Carriage lights are perfect to light up garage doors and entranceways while uplighting is perfect for highlighting landscaping and washing walls with light. Sidewalks and walking paths can be accentuated with LED pathway lighting.
Recessed LED Soffit Lights Have So Many Benefits
Also known as LED pot-lights or can-lights, LED recessed lights are popular for many reasons. They shine brighter and use less power than traditional incandescent or fluorescent lighting. LED’s typically last a lot longer too which means you won’t have to change them out every year like with more traditional lighting. With energy prices on the rise, they make sense for the household budget.
Not only are LED recessed lights great for outdoor soffits, Hauer Power Electrical, an Edmonton electrician has retrofitted hundreds of them in living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms.
Modern LED recessed lights can produce light as narrow spotlights or wide area floodlights in different intensities, producing a myriad of lighting effects. High quality LED recessed lights render colors better than fluorescent or incandescent lamps creating a better overall look.
Change Colors Any Time
Some models of LED recessed lights allow you to control and color change using your cellular device. This gives homeowners a new level of customization that was never available before.
