Electrical Services: Indoor/Outdoor Lighting
Having reliable indoor and outdoor lighting throughout your home or business is critical to your daily life, but many people don’t realize how complex this task can be. Not only do you need to have the right number of light fixtures in the right locations, you also need to know how to wire them properly, connect them to an electrical source and make sure they have enough power without creating an electrical fire hazard.
An electrician can help with all of these issues, saving you time and stress while ensuring that your home or business has reliable lighting that won’t cause any problems down the road.
LED lights (light-emitting diodes) have become more popular because they use less energy than traditional bulbs. Using a string of LED lights is a simple way to light up your yard or garden, but you should be aware that there’s more to it than simply snapping them into place—beyond being potentially hazardous if placed incorrectly, some cities have created ordinances that regulate how many can be used and where, so it’s a good idea to check with your local authorities first.
If you decide to go ahead with installing an outdoor lighting system, make sure to use weatherproof fixtures; even if you don’t live in an area prone to inclement weather, moisture can seep into any cracks and cause corrosion over time. You may also want to consider hiring an electrician who has experience installing these types of systems; while it may seem like a straightforward task at first glance, having someone experienced in doing so will help ensure that everything goes smoothly from start to finish.

FAQ: Residential Electrical Lighting
Indoor and outdoor lighting can make or break the look of your home, both inside and out. While you may think this means that you need to hire an interior designer or landscape architect, it’s easier than that!
How does indoor lighting make a room look bigger?
Natural lighting is undeniably one of nature’s wonders. Some people are lucky enough to have a large window in their home, which allows sunlight to stream in and flood a room with warm light. But not everyone has such an advantageous view. If you find yourself staring at walls instead of landscapes, it might be time to add some artificial light sources. Not only will these lights give your home that lived-in feel, but they can also make your rooms look bigger than they actually are.
Why do I need high-quality electrical service?
This is a question that may have crossed your mind once or twice when you’ve needed an electrician. We may tell ourselves that as long as there’s power running through our homes and appliances, we’re good to go. After all, we shouldn’t worry about something we can’t see, right? Not quite. Electrical work is actually one of those jobs that, without high-quality service and materials, can cause some serious issues (including fire) in our home.
When should I replace my outdoor lighting?
The age of your outdoor lighting is a key consideration when determining if you need new fixtures. Because there are so many types of outdoor lights, each with varying lifespans, there isn’t one set time frame for replacement. Most manufacturers recommend replacing incandescent and halogen bulbs after they burn out; these tend to last two or three years.
