There are always advantages to having a professional electrician do the job, and that applies to creative outdoor lighting as well. From holiday and Christmas decorative lighting to ambient outdoor lighting for gathering places like the poolside, your gazebo or deck, and the patio where everyone wants to continue under the stars after a great barbecue. Our electricians at Mister Sparky of Wilmington, NC are your skilled resource for safe, reliable lighting installation that you, your family, and your guests will enjoy year-round. Whether you have your own traditional designs or are working with a designer, we can take your ideas and implement them with professionally installed lighting fixtures, outdoor-friendly power outlets to plug in seasonal lights and avoid extension cords, and additional circuits in your power panel to provide the energy to make everything shine brightly. We can also help you make the switch to low-power LED lights and other energy-saving solutions so the bill for your holiday lighting is more budget-friendly as well.
Outdoor Outlets for Extra Protection
Power, where you need it, can make a big difference in safety and convenience outdoors. Our electricians run the right wiring and conduit for each location, fastening them in place for long service when they’re on your building, and carefully locating them underground with the right materials and protection. At the end of the run, we provide weatherproof enclosures, GFCI protected outlets and other amenities that make outdoor life an enjoyable part of your year. We can even add outlets with specialized connections for networking and audio-video wiring. Do you want to show movies in your yard? We can help. Going crazy and projecting festive images on your outdoor walls? Let us help.
Running Power to Your Gazebo
A long underground power run to your gazebo can add lighting, outlets, and after-dark enjoyment of this special space. Sometimes it’s essential to have a getaway for reading, writing, and being alone with your thoughts, and a carefully lit gazebo with dim indirect lighting installed by our professionals can be perfect as a retreat. Turn up the sparkling lights and bring a table, and it’s a beautiful setting for a dinner for two, a romantic moment in your otherwise busy life. Power outlets with weather protection provide safe access to electricity for your wireless speakers, laptop, or even a coffee maker.
Patio Lighting and Power
The patio is an extension of your home, an easy transition from indoor life to the beautiful outdoors. It’s a place where you can barbecue and serve dinner under the stars, hold parties, and bring your family into the summer from their indoor work and studying, even if they still plug in and continue their work and play online. With the right wiring and lighting by our electricians, your patio becomes another room in your home, just one without walls or windows where you can watch nature and relax.
Pool Power and Illumination
There’s nothing like a pool party at night or a quiet moment by the poolside long after the sun has set. This is one place where careful electrical installation of outlets and lighting is definitely best done by our experienced electricians, who can design features that work well around water and withstand inclement weather but add convenience and beauty to your pool space. We can run power to your pool house as well, to add energy for your refrigerator and other features that help keep the activity outdoors, without regular runs to the kitchen interfering with life indoors and dinner preparation.
External Lighting for Your Home
Architectural lighting can create amazing effects, and it definitely isn’t just for monuments, public attractions, and corporate buildings. Your home can be quietly confident in its lighting features at night or put on a spectacle that makes it a pleasure to drive up your driveway and see where you and your family live. You can have different modes of lighting for everyday living, as a beacon for parties, and to add your home to the indirect lighting sources that keep your yard in play after dark. Our electricians are experts with all kinds of modern fixtures and lighting equipment, ready to install them to support your designs.
Path and Driveway Lights
Solar mushroom-style lighting is a novel feature to guide people along walkways and driveways, but there are other options that our electricians can install which provide different lighting techniques, control options, and features. We can carefully cut a discreet path for the wiring and run regular or low-voltage wiring depending on the types of lighting and other features you select. You may also want to combine your driveway lighting with security features such as motion sensors, and your walkway lights can vary depending on whether the front entrance is in use tonight or a direct path to the backyard.
Smart Home Lighting Control
Our electricians can install smart home devices including smart outlets, lighting switches, and dimmers, and light fixtures themselves that allow you to control your everyday lighting or have remote and timer-based control of your festive lighting. We can work with you or your designer to create the wiring and equipment plan and install equipment that will add to your home’s convenience and enjoyment.
Adding Circuits to Keep Your Outdoor Power On Its Own
Extending power from existing rooms in your home for outdoor use might not be the most convenient approach. Our team can easily add circuits to support well-designed outdoor lighting and power use, managed separately with GFCI circuit breakers.
