Energy Efficient Lighting Options for Your Magnolia Rental Property

Magnolia Property Manager Placing Energy Efficient Lightbulbs in a Fixture

Lighting is a crucial feature of any rental home. The style, amount, and quality of the light fixtures both inside and out can directly affect the success of your rental properties in Magnolia. This is because even though lighting might appear like a small feature in a rental home, residents want rental homes that are lit correctly and efficiently. Good lighting produces an attractive feel to a rental home, enhances security, and can even help decrease utility bills. It is now easy for property owners to find the best light fixtures for their properties and residents with the wide range of lighting options available.

When considering the numerous lighting options for your rental property, the best place to begin is just by updating old or nonfunctional light fixtures. Cheap, tawdry, broken, or otherwise unattractive lighting fixtures can deter potential residents as they may see it as a sign that the owner is not willing to do basic upgrades to the home regularly. This is particularly true if the home has any broken or nonfunctional lights. Residents need to see that all aspects of the rental home are being monitored and maintained so that they can feel happy enough to remain longer.

There are increasing options in the area of energy efficient lighting other than basic maintenance. From LED lights to solar fixtures for the home’s exterior, the wide variety of styles and applications available make energy efficient lighting a good option for homeowners. Magnolia residents are going to love the reduced utility bills, and owners can provide improved security for their rental properties. Decorative touches and efficient function are combined in a lot of these efficient lighting fixtures.

Along with picking the best type of lighting for your needs, the placement and amount of lighting fixtures is another important consideration. Safety-conscious residents may want additional exterior lighting, mainly over each entrance and in dark areas of the yard. For instance, adding a motion-sensor spotlight over the driveway, backyard, or other dark areas of the yard will help residents feel safer and provide an energy efficient safety net for your investment. Other examples include installing multiple layers of lighting in kitchens or bigger rooms and adding ceiling fans to bedrooms. These small features can give an upgraded feel to the entire rental home.

While there are seemingly endless options to pick from when it comes to lighting, the best strategy is to pick quality, simple fixtures that will add value to your investment past the initial cost.
