An ideal way to efficiently extend the
charm of a home is with exterior propane lighting. Propane lighting provides
several benefits - all of which boost the value of the house. Outdoor
propane lighting enhances a home's curb appeal, accentuates landscaping,
lights the way for friends and family, and offers security by deterring
intruders. And the warm glow cast by propane lights welcomes guests even
during a power outage.
Propane lighting is also a cost-effective solution. Many propane lamps offer
energy-saving features such as solar-activated valve controls that automatically
reduce gas flow during daylight hours.
Whether you're building
an adobe ranch, a brick colonial, a contemporary multi-level, or a log cabin,
you can choose from among a variety of propane-fueled outdoor lighting options,
including portable, wall-mounted and post-mounted lamps and lanterns. Permanent
fixtures can be fueled by the home's propane storage tank, while smaller lanterns
typically used for landscape and recreational lighting are usually connected
to portable propane cylinders.
Outdoor propane lighting is not only an attractive option
but also offers distinct advantages for homeowners in remote suburban or rural
