3. Energy-Efficient Products
The buzz on energy-efficient products continues to grow as homeowners remodel and expand outdoor settings. The key to reducing energy consumption in outdoor lighting is the reliance on LED lighting – an ultra energy-efficient light source that uses up to 80% less electricity than typical incandescent lighting.
Depending on the particular style you’re seeking, there are a variety of LED fixtures that can help welcome visitors to your home while accommodating your energy-efficient needs.
“Decreasing energy consumption and its costs remains top-of-mind for homeowners when tackling remodeling projects,” says Dross. “As the technology of LED continues to grow, manufacturers continue to develop products that not only are energy efficient, but aesthetically pleasing and provide added design elements.”
4. Outdoor Fans
With an array of exterior cooling options, outdoor fan designs have certainly come a long way. Not only do they provide refreshing, cooler air, but design innovations have made them the perfect accent to any outdoor space. Outdoor ceiling fans are now moisture-resistant to withstand certain weather conditions, and some are even equipped with energy-efficient DC motors to reduce energy consumption while being safe for the environment.
Whatever styles you pursue, there are many ways to reconfigure your home’s exterior, making it more inviting and welcoming for both family and visitors.
