When selecting outdoor lighting options for a home, a decision inevitably needs to be made between gas lighting options and electric lighting options. Both options provide an exceptional experience at a comparable expense, but some of the popular benefits of gas lighting for homes are as follows:
Gas lighting provides a durable and dependable option for outdoor lighting that is not dependent on electricity. Naturally, gas lights do not require electrical wiring and/or will prove functional even when the power goes out.
Purely as a matter of preference, gas lighting provides a classic ambiance that appeals to those searching for a certain aesthetic. They make a statement of elegance that invites the eyes of guests and passersby. The organic glow of a flame is softer than the hard light of a bulb and provides less glare and unkind shade.
As a matter of maintenance, gas lights require less in the sense that they don’t demand the interval changing of light bulbs. An added benefit is that insects are not drawn to gas lighting in the same way as they are to electric lighting.
Also, as with all of our solutions, gas lighting options are available in a wide assortment of styles.
Bevolo was founded in New Orleans, LA in 1945 by Andrew Bevolo, a man who revolutionized the way gas lighting was produced. Since then, the company has grown to be a worldwide success, all while remaining under the Bevolo family's ownership. The company’s hard work and dedication to producing quality gas lighting products is what has driven their success to be what it is today.
"This is a company that was born and bred here, using local artists and craftspeople. Perhaps fueled by the flavor of a unique place, the flickering fantasy of the French Quarter lantern casts a romantic glow on an art form that, thanks to the Bevolo family, will never be lost."
