What are the advantages of spring installation for outdoor lighting?
There are a number of benefits to choosing to install your outdoor lighting systems in the spring months. These include:
- Electrical trenching- if your security or outdoor lighting will need electrical trenching, spring can be one of the best seasons for this. This is because electrical trenching involves digging out a trench in which to safely lay your power lines and wires underground. And during the spring months, the ground is easier to dig up than it is during the winter, because of the spring showers. While keeping the trench protected from rainwater above is essential, this is also fairly easy to implement.
- Time to enjoy the lighting- if your lighting is for decorative purposes at your venue or workplace, then installing this during the spring means that it will be fully up and running by the summer, when your staff and clients may be most likely to enjoy it. So instead of waiting until the summer for installation, jump in early for effective results for the rest of the year.
- Low demand- typically speaking, spring is a great time to have big projects undertaken. Many people opt for big electrical work to begin in autumn, ready for winter. This means there is much less demand on services during the earlier months of the year. As a result, your project will be completed quickly and for a lower cost.
