Energy Efficient Lighting Options for Your Newburgh Rental Property

Newburgh Property Manager Placing Energy Efficient Lightbulbs in a Fixture

Lighting is a crucial part of any rental home. The type, amount, and quality of the light fixtures both inside and out can directly affect the success of your Newburgh rental properties. This is because although lighting may seem like a minute detail, residents want to rent homes that are appropriately and efficiently lit. Adequate lighting brings about a delightful experience to a rental home, amplifies security, and can even help lower utility bills. It is now easy for property owners to get the best lighting fixtures for their properties and residents with a wide variety of available lighting options.

When studying the numerous lighting options for your rental property, an excellent place to begin is by simply 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 there are lights in the home that are nonfunctional or broken. Residents need to see that all aspects of the rental home are being monitored and maintained so that they can feel comfortable enough to remain in the rental home longer.

On top of basic maintenance, there are many options in the area of energy efficient lighting. From LED lights to solar fixtures for the home’s exterior, the extensive range of available styles and applications make energy efficient lighting a solid option for homeowners. Newburgh residents will love the reduced utility bills, and owners can improve their rental homes’ safety. Aesthetic touches and efficient function are combined in several of these efficient lighting fixtures.

The placement and number of lighting fixtures is another important consideration besides choosing the best type of lighting for your needs. Safety-conscious residents might want more exterior lighting, particularly over each entrance and in dark spots in the yard. For example, installing a motion-sensor spotlight over the driveway, backyard, or other dark areas of the yard will help residents feel more secure and set up an energy efficient safety net for your investment. Other examples include having several layers of lighting in kitchens or larger rooms and installing ceiling fans in bedrooms. These small features can give an upgraded feel to the entire rental home.

While it may appear like there are endless options to choose from when it comes to lighting, the best strategy is to choose quality, simple fixtures that will add value to your investment beyond the initial cost.
