Outdoor Lighting for Homes and Businesses

Fall is well on its way all across the country. The days are getting shorter, which always means that you’ll be keeping the lights on for longer. That can mean a noticeable increase in your energy bill, especially for outdoor lighting around your home or business. Fall is a great season to do an assessment of your outdoor lighting system and determine how you can maximize your efficiency, as well as cultivate the perfect atmosphere for home or business property.

For homeowners, the early days of fall are often the best times to spend a night on the porch or grill out under the stars. Without the sort of quality lighting that Shine Retrofits offers, you’ll most likely not use the space, and let those nice evenings before the cold winter sets in go to waste.

You might be considering upgrading your porch lights to a more energy-efficient model, or are looking for just the right ambiance for your outdoor space. Maybe you just need some work lights so you can grill out under the stars on a cold, crisp evening, or you want to sip a hot drink in the glow of a warm lamp. Regardless, Shine Retrofits has you covered.

Commercial businesses also have to start thinking about upgrading their outdoor lighting this time of year. Restaurants often have their busiest times around dinner, and in the fall/winter months they need to ensure their outdoor lighting is attractive and functional so that prospective customers want to come eat at their establishment. Attractive, functional lights are key to designing an outdoor lighting system that works for your business. With Shine Retrofits you can do that while also making the switch to LEDs, helping you also save money on energy use.

These outdoor lighting needs translate over to a host of other commercial applications. Around this time of year, retail spaces such as strip malls and storefronts need to start thinking about attracting as much holiday business as they can. Since Thanksgiving and Christmas is the time of year when consumers tend to be more active, it’s critical that brick and mortar businesses in the retail sector design their lighting to be as attractive, and energy-efficient, as possible. When it comes to facing the e-commerce domination of businesses like Amazon, the user experience of physical retail locations matter more than ever. That’s why it’s important to invest in attractive and energy-efficient lights as soon as possible.

We will go over porch lighting, wall mounts/lights, and a selection of other great products that we offer.
