Advantages of Installing Timers for Your Lights

Automatic timer for electric lights

Summertime is nearly here, as we’ll soon enjoy the longest day of the year.

One of our most popular requests in the summer is timers for exterior lighting. Here are just a few benefits of installing timers around your home:

1. Safe
When darkness falls, we turn on our lights. It’s natural and (almost) automatic. When your property is pitch black, it’s an indication that no one is home, a great sign for intruders looking for an easy target. Installing lights set to a timer is one way to combat this. Our timers allow you to manually set on and off times for your outdoor lighting. This is especially useful when you’re away for an extended period (say, summer vacation!).

2. Convenient
Although turning on and off a light manually doesn’t take much effort, you’ll be amazed at just how easy and convenient timers can be. Set your porchlight and lampposts to turn on at dusk; your family and guests will thank you for the illuminated path.

3. Cost-Effective
Though it may seem counter-intuitive, having your lights set to timers will save you money in the long run. All too often, we turn on lights and forget to turn them off. Setting specific lights to timers eliminates the need to do either.
