Energy Efficient Lighting Options for Your College Station Rental Property

College Station Property Manager Placing Energy Efficient Lightbulbs in a Fixture

Lighting is a necessary feature of any rental home. The type, amount, and quality of the light fixtures both inside and out can directly affect the success of your College Station rental properties. This is because although lighting might seem unimportant, residents want to rent homes that are correctly and efficiently lit. Ample lighting boosts security, adds an appealing feel to a rental home, and could even help lower utility bills. With the wide range of lighting options now available, it is easy for property owners to pick the ones that are good for their properties and their residents.

When thinking about the numerous lighting options for your rental property, the best place to start would be simply updating old or nonfunctional light fixtures. Cheap, tacky, broken, or otherwise unappealing lighting fixtures can be a huge deterrent for potential residents as they might think it is a sign that the owner doesn’t want to regularly perform basic home upgrades. This is particularly true if there are lights in the home that are nonfunctional or broken. Residents should see that every element of the rental home is being supervised and maintained, so they feel comfortable staying in the rental home longer.

On top of basic maintenance, your options in the area of energy efficient lighting are growing. From LED lights to solar fixtures for the exterior of the home, the comprehensive range of styles and applications available make energy efficient lighting a solid opportunity for property owners. College Station residents will enjoy the reduced utility bills, and owners can improve their rental homes’ safety. Many of these efficient lighting fixtures provide both decorative touches and efficient function.

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 areas of 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. Another example is installing multiple layers of lighting in large rooms like kitchens and placing ceiling fans in bedrooms. These seemingly tiny things can make a rental home feel like new.

While it might seem that there are endless options to choose from when it comes to lighting, the best strategy is to choose quality, simple fixtures that will boost your investment’s value beyond its initial cost.
