Solar Patio Lights: Save the Planet and Some Money!

desain rumah sederhana minimalis – Lately it has almost been fashionable to be ‘green’. Environmentalists, politicians and business leaders are urging everybody to reduce their carbon footprint in the pursuit of reducing man-made global warming.

This rising trend has given birth to a new range of products on the market – from hybrid motor vehicles with reduced CO2 emissions to solar patio lights.

The concept of solar patio lights is very simple. Solar power from natural sunlight is stored by a built in battery during the day. When the sun sets, the battery is ‘powered up’ to provide energy for the lights to function. This process occurs daily as long as there is sunlight. Also, most solar patio lights have energy efficient bulbs which use traditionally less energy than other electric lights.

This energy efficiency implies that the cost of maintaining these lights is negligible. There are therefore no monthly electric bills to pay for lighting your patio, as the light is abundantly and freely supplied with the compliments of Mother Nature. The only significant outlay is upfront and if you shop around, you will find some excellent deals.
Getting the most ‘bang for your buck’ is not the only positive attribute of solar patio lights. They are also effortlessly easy to install. Solar lights come in all shapes and sizes.

Patio String Lights: Decorative Charm

desain rumah sederhana 6×12Patio lights have always had the magical ability of transforming an ordinary patio instantaneously into an outdoor wonderland.

You can get so much more out of your patio if you’re able to utilise it after the sun sets – think evening bbq’s, some drinks with guests, etc. The market for patio accessories has changed massively over the last few years.

The infant has grown into a mature market offering variety to homeowners. Nowhere is this truer than with the range of patio string lights. It seems like just a few years ago, consumers had to be satisfied with fragile plastic yellow green and red lanterns decorated randomly around the patio railing. Consumers now have choice, and an abundance of it!

So how do I distinguish between patio string lights and other lights?

Firstly they work on a low wattage system and therefore have low heat emissions, rendering it safe for your use outdoors.  Every string has set wattage which means that the brighter the lights, the fewer amount you can have on the string. The amount of lights you have on a string therefore depends largely on their size as well as brightness. The light globes themselves on the string are usually spaced about twelve inches from each other. The strings vary greatly in length, but generally go up to around 100 feet.

Inevitable the question is now asked, ‘What are the best ways to incorporate patio string lights into my outdoor settings?’ Let’s look at a few options,

These lights use a solar panel that charges a battery during the day, and then at night the light is powered on by the charged battery. This is especially helpful if there is not an accessible power source. It is also a great way to save on energy bills, since solar power does not add to your electric bill.
