At Mister Sparky of Myrtle Beach, our electricians are experts at electrical systems wherever they may be. You usually see us working in your basement or installing wall outlets and switches, but our electricians also install, wire, and manage lighting using ladders and bucket trucks, often on commercial properties but it’s a perfect solution for your Conway, SC home’s exterior lighting, too. If you’ve been concerned about a family member taking risks, or you’re holding back on your grand design because of safety, let the professionals take over the implementation. Our professionals can put up Christmas lights and other holiday decorations to brighten up the winter nights, add party lighting for summer soirees, and install carefully designed architectural lighting that accents your home in beautiful ways when the sun goes down and makes arriving home and watching the lights pop on to greet you into quite an event.
All the Fixtures for the Trimmings
If you’re planning to trim and decorate your home with lights, you may be thinking of extension cords and zip ties or some other method of supplying temporary power to strings of lights and other electrical devices. Our electrician can run separate circuits, install switches and smart home controls, and other properly installed, grounded, and GFCIed wiring to support your long-term decorative plans. Our services will make your lighting more reliable, weatherproof, and best of all, safer since it’s done to code, according to our electrical installation best practices. We can also add lighting fixtures themselves for floodlights and other devices to complement the seasonal lighting. These days, GFCI for safety against accidental electrical shock when power is used in potentially damp conditions, and even AFCI which protects against fire hazards from wire damage due to arcing, are available in circuit breakers that we can install and you can reset, after proper investigation of the problem, from the comfort of your basement rather than at an outlet on the outside of your home.
Party Lighting on Your Patio, Gazebo, or Pool
Speaking of safe wiring and protective devices, if you want plenty of lighting and outlets outside, our electrician can install them properly. We will replace any existing uncovered wire that might be running underground or stapled to the outsides of buildings, and significantly improve your family’s safety. GFCI and AFCI protection is necessary and a great idea besides, protecting everyone during parties and other times when the power is turned on outside, and also providing protection when the power is turned on accidentally and people assume it’s off. We’re electricians, after all, generally cautious people because we work with power every day.
Lighting That’s Practical and Functional as Well as Decorative
Our electricians are also creative problem solvers when it comes to installing wiring and lighting in unusual circumstances. We can provide great lighting for your pool or patio or yard lighting from your eaves that’s designed to do more than cast long shadows of the people walking around outside and put glare in their eyes after dark. Experienced electricians have techniques, and if you have a landscape designer or other design professional you’d like to work with us, we can provide even more creative lighting and power solutions to create the effects you want. Imagine lights positioned in your landscape islands, hidden outlets available for seasonal inflatable or motorized displays, and motion sensor-controlled lights that awaken to illuminate areas in use such as walkways, benches, and driveways. You’ll have an energetic way to illuminate your events, but also practical lighting features for your everyday use and safety. If you have outbuildings or a garage that needs a solid, safe power source or even a power panel and circuit breakers of its own for a workshop or other activity, we have solutions you’ll appreciate.
Working from Home Goes Outside
Some people also add power, wiring, and even internet endpoints outside so that your yard is a viable workplace, giving you a place to plug in, a WiFi signal, and some ambient lighting for your reading or paperwork after dusk. You could even add a coffee maker in the gazebo and hold your breakfast online meetings in the beauty of your backyard! People will think it’s just another background picture until the birds drop in to see what you’re doing. Power on your patio is great for working and also to hold family gatherings and barbecues with plenty of light, wiring for sound, and even what’s needed to support an outdoor video projector including power and AV cables in a weatherproof receptacle for movie nights outside. Of course, someone will realize that means it’s perfect for outdoor gaming as well! Birthday parties don’t have to be indoors, after all. And anywhere that adults can work from home, kids can connect to classes or work online as well, providing a break from being stuck in their rooms or at the family computer in order to make progress at school.
Architectural Illumination, Painting Your Home with Light at Night
Just as the rising and setting sun paints different pictures of your home, our electrician’s carefully installed lighting can explore the features of your residence and bring out its beauty at night. From a front porch chandelier and other decorative lighting such as sconces or lanterns to recessed lighting that fills in the dark areas without making a show of itself, night lighting can be beautiful outside. These days, smart home systems and smartphone apps run lighting by programming your preferences or tapping the lights you want, and even if you’ve settled into bed you can turn it off.
