They say it takes an entire week for your body to fully adjust to losing an hour’s worth of sleep after Daylight Savings. However, while we might be groggy and a little grumpy until the weekend, the time change also signifies a brand new season and more time to get things done around the house. Here’s how we at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington suggest taking advantage of the longer days this week:
Use the extra hours of daylight this week to inspect your outdoor lighting system for damages from the rough winter season.
Daylight Savings Checklist:
- Change all the clocks. You could be in for an unpleasant surprise or two if you accidentally forget about your kids’ alarm clocks or the dashboard clock in the car.
- Change batteries in smoke detectors and perform other routine maintenance around the house. Having more hours of daylight when you get home from work gives you the chance to finally take care of all the little (but important) tasks like this that you put off during the winter.
- Inspect your outdoor lighting. This is as simple as calling the friendly experts at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington. Our team will come out to your house to inspect all your fixtures for damage, make any reparations necessary and even adjust the placements of some fixtures to give your home a fresh new look for the Spring. We can service your system even if it wasn’t installed by us.
Automatic outdoor lighting timers make it easy to keep your home looking great around the clock. Another thing to consider when it comes to your outdoor lighting after Daylight Savings Time is whether or not your system includes an automatic outdoor lighting timer with an advanced photocell. These high-tech devices detect sunlight in order to automatically light up your home as soon as the sun goes down. In addition to ensuring your home looks its absolute best around the clock, it’s one less thing you have to keep track of after the time change.
If you’re still using an old outdoor lighting timer, get an outdoor lighting upgrade to help you spring forward, faster. Our expert team of specialists are ready to give your system the first-class service it deserves to bring out the best in your home, effortlessly.
