Natural gas lighting is a great way to add charm and value to the exterior of homes. Outdoor lighting continues to increase in popularity as homeowners look to add a touch of elegance while increasing the safety and security of their properties. Natural gas lighting will add a warm glow and pleasing ambiance to your homeowner’s front entrance, deck or patio.
If you want to convince homebuyers to add natural gas lighting as a feature, don’t forget to mention the following additional benefits:
- Doesn’t attract insects—nothing can ruin an outdoor event like a swarm of mosquitoes. Gas powered lights give off an amber glow that isn’t attractive to insects.
- Security—gas lighting will continue to operate during an electrical power outage, increasing the safety and security of the home.
- No harsh glare—natural gas lighting is warm and understated, but gives off an illumination equal to a 60-watt light bulb. Those with quad burners produce as much light as a 100-watt light bulb.
- Landscaping—natural gas lighting casts an attractive glow that can be used to highlight and enhance landscaping.
Homebuyers will also love the fact that natural gas lights are economical and require little maintenance; some models will last for years. Most come with slide-out tempered glass that is easy to clean and there are no light bulbs to change.
Styles and options
Natural gas lights come in a variety of styles, materials and options that fit virtually any homebuyer’s preference, from traditional to contemporary. A traditional gas lamppost is a perfect addition to an elegant front entrance. Smaller lights can be used to illuminate a sidewalk or pathway. Tiki torch styles are an excellent choice for a deck or patio. Mounting options include ceiling, post, wall and pedestal.
Homebuyers can choose between traditional gas lights that operate continuously or models that use daylight-sensitive electronic dimmer switches. These switches regulate the flow of natural gas during daylight hours and turn it up after dark. Or, consider gas lamps with an electronic gas safety starter on a timer or switch. This feature will turn a lamp on at dusk and off at daybreak; saving up to 50 percent on energy costs. Some models also offer battery-operated, solar-charged switches. For the eco-conscious homebuyer, models are available with efficient gas burners and made from recyclable materials.
The elegance and sophistication of natural gas lights provide curb appeal that may actually increase the value of the home. Homebuyers will appreciate this advantage when they are ready to sell and move on to their next residence. Make sure your prospective home buyers can view the house at night so they see the unique and distinctive look of natural gas lighting.
