Prepare for Summer With Exterior Lighting

The dreadfully cold, and excessively long months of winter are soon to be over. In no time at all, the hottest months of the year will be upon us! Once summer arrives we can be more active and enjoy the outdoors a whole lot more. The opportunity to make outdoor memories with our beloved families is just weeks away. Imagine sitting outside in the warm air and taking in the breeze, the beautiful skies above. Kicking back on a comfortable lawn chair on the veranda and scrolling through the latest ebook on your tablet. Listening to the jovial sounds of your stubby fingered children chasing your delighted dog around the yard.

Humidity Rears its Ugly Head
The unbelievably hot seasons in Plano, Garland and Rowlett are probably mythical to the rest of the states. While everyone else would appreciate hot, summer days, your town gets the unpleasant end of the situation. Soon the warm refreshing air, will turn sticky and humid. These delightful days will be long gone and you will want to be indoors with the central air on high. You reason that you can still read inside, and mentally appreciate the expansive blue skies and sunny weather. Unfortunately the kids would still rather be out playing, and the dog needs his exercise.

Lighting for The Yard and Pool
Now, it might be time to consider some convenient lighting for your dimly lit yard. There are plenty of color choices to choose from. The brands and designs are truly endless. Your safest bet is to go with a lighting system that can be activated by a switch. There are many cheap, store bought options such as tiki torches or solar lights. Unfortunately these styles break easily and do not provide any type of legitimate guarantee to refund your money. They do not look very appealing, either.

Long lasting and professional lighting systems can be easily installed by local electricians, for a job that is guaranteed. Consider investing in a landscape lighting system that can be activated by a switch. At the click of a button, your whole yard would become beautifully illuminated with light. Dark shadowed stairs, turning into enhanced rectangular shapes, squashing the risk of being a falling hazard.
The outline of your yard would become visible and eliminate the chance of an unwanted intruder, or pesky raccoon scavenging through last night’s dinner in your trash can. Many innovative lighting systems can be wired by licensed electricians to become activated on sensors. Meaning, the moment a moving object entered contact with the sensor, your landscape lighting would flash on. This further eliminates any suspicions about strange noises and dark shadows lurking in the night.
Once you have established a trusted landscape lighting system for your property, pool lighting is the next thing to consider. Why not make the most out of your investment, and turn your day pool into an exciting night time hobby? Instead of limiting swimming to sunlight filled hours, make night time swimming a viable option as well. The whole family will be happy, even Fido.

Imagine pool lighting brightly illuminating your crystal blue swimming pool. Whether your idea is global lighting throughout the wavy waters of your in-ground pool, or fiber optics that offer a shimmering effect, there surely is something to satisfy everyone’s imagination. Tossing around a volleyball during the night hours and enjoying a few cold ones with your buddies. Do not worry if you have little desire to install lighting yourself, licensed electricians are great with this kind of task. They can have your pool lighted, and the mechanics figured out in little time at all.

Preparing The Family Pool
With all of the arduous tasks of winter, the shoveling and salting, unfortunately you put summer by the wayside. The tasks of summer having been forgotten about, your in-ground pool is in shambles and needs some serious work. In addition to a thorough cleaning, the pool also needs its corroded filter wires swapped out for new ones. Once the family helps scoop a year’s worth of leaves out of your pool cover, flip through the phone book and hire a local electrician.

Maybe you can fix the problems yourself, but it is a rather tedious and time consuming chore. Consider your options and weigh out the benefits. At times like this, a general electrician definitely comes in handy. Not only can he, or she save you time, but will probably offer you a very good price. Please, be sure to do a thorough search for your personal outdoor needs, and hire a reputable and licensed electrician. An electrician with a decent reputation is likely to know his way around your pool problems, and offer quick solutions that you will be thrilled with. Once the swimming pool begins to function more like a fun leisurely activity, instead of a difficult job, you will be very thankful.

Enjoying The Summer!
The kids and entire family will be happy to be able to play outside during the warm summer nights. Lighting provides a much safer family environment during the dark, night hours. Have endless days and nights of fun in your newly lit pool. Barbeque through all hours of the night and entertain guests with your new landscape lighting system. Keep an eye on your furry friend, from inside the air conditioned house. The ability to flip on a lighting system from the flip of a switch provides endless assets.

This is one summer that you may never want to end, everyone will be waterlogged and have jubilant smiles upon their faces! Its night time, you are reading a book on the hammock in the generous lighting of your backyard. The chattering kids are sopping wet, chasing Fido through the grass and he’s happily wagging his tail. You take a break from your book to gently toss each toe-headed toddler in the colorfully lit pool. Enjoy this summer and make treasured memories with your family, and friends that are sure to last a lifetime.

***First Time Customer***

We had a 200 AMP Panel burn early Saturday morning. My husband contacted Barney’s Electric; Barney quickly returned the phone call and agreed to come over the following morning.

Barney and Steve arrived at our home on Sunday at 7:00 AM. They completed the job to our satisfaction in a timely and professional manner.

Awesome job, definitely a "5 STAR" Company!

Thank you, Barney and Steve for taking care of us / our home. We will gladly recommend “Barney’s Electric” to our friends and family!

On Saturday morning, my parents house nearly caught fire after their power breaker panel exploded and they were without power for the night. Barney (the owner himself) showed up at 7am on a Sunday the next morning and completely installed an entirely new breaker panel and had their power restored by Noon. The price was fair. He showed up a Sunday in a day's notice. Easily saved my parents $3-4K that Milestone Electric wanted to charge!

Barney and his team always do a great job. I found him years ago, and put his number on my breaker box. Now whenever I need electrical work done, I know who to call. Today he installed a new circuit - and with proper social distancing! Thanks for years of great work Barney.
