Outdoor Solar Post Lights

There’s nothing better than using free solar energy to brighten up a home! These days, every single thing under the sun is soaring in price, which is why it is getting more and more attractive to take advantage of outdoor solar post lights.

They're the lighting options that won’t just help you save money on electricity costs, but they will also help you go green and maintain your home’s safety during nighttime.

They're perfect as well regardless of whether you’re remodeling, updating, or building a new home! As they’re available in all sorts of styles, sizes, and quality, you need to be careful of what you invest your money into.

In terms of style, you will be able to find outdoor solar post lighting options that will fit your home’s aesthetic appeal. From a tall, stately Georgian estate to a petite bungalow in California, outdoor solar posts make great backyard or front yard additions. To determine the right style for your new lighting fixtures, determine what your home’s style is as well as the colors that are mainly used in your home’s exterior including the roofing, siding, and stonework.

Beiges, red brickwork, and earth tones work best with solar posts that are in similar finishes like copper, brass, and bronze. If your home has black, grey, or slate tones, then choose the posts with white, zinc, nickel, chrome, pewter, and black finishes. You shouldn’t forget proportions as well. Your home may be built in between 1950 and 2004. If so, then it’s likely that your home’s exterior elevation is quite shallow compared to older or newer homes. Posts that are shorter will be your best options. For a newer or very old home, taller posts will look better. A townhome will also demand taller and narrower proportions for lighting.

It is also important that you maintain your outdoor solar posts if you want to ensure your family’s safety and security. If there are broken or burnt out bulbs, then you should replace them. Clean grimy lenses as well using a soft damp cloth. If your light fixtures become corroded, replace them immediately. Lastly, trim branches, shrubs, and bushes so you prevent light obstruction.
