Recessed lighting, also known as can lighting, is one of the most popular electrical upgrades you can make in your home. Recessed lighting is an attractive upgrade that installs flush with the ceiling, and can assist in creating the illusion of higher ceilings. While it eliminates the need for hanging fixtures, when you choose LED lighting, it also saves energy. Ready for recessed lighting? Contact Mister Sparky for professional installation, replacement and home electrical repair.
Recessed lighting also adds style, appeal, and improves the function of lighting in your home. When saving energy is a factor in your lighting upgrade, LED lighting consumes 85% less electricity than incandescent light bulbs, 50% less than CFL’s, and 30% less energy than fluorescent. Furthermore, LED lights do not create heat, reducing the workload on the air conditioner.
LED light bulbs can last as much as 55,000 hours or longer, depending on the bulb. Not all are created equally, so read the package front before buying. Generally, the better bulb brands are the longest lasting.
Consider the post light outside your home that requires a ladder to change the bulb. LED lighting will only require changing about every 10 years or longer, depending on the bulb’s rating, under normal circumstances. Furthermore, LED bulbs do not contain the hazardous material mercury, or require special disposal as some other types do.
Recessed lighting coordinates with almost any style, and is available in numerous colors,and finishes. In addition, it is now available for use with long awaited for LED dimmers. With a dimmer, you can take advantage of ambient lighting, and create the atmosphere you want. For example, use it to accent an your favorite painting, as a spotlight indoors, or out with the energy saved on any LED choice. Just ensure you choose the appropriate bulb and a dimmer switch installation compatible with LED bulbs. Our electricians can provide the dimmer installation you need, as well as any home electrical repair you require.
Adjustable recessed lighting can be used as task lighting, allowing you to see what you are doing more clearly. If there is any one room where recessed lighting is a must have, it would have to be in the home theater. Recessed lights are the ideal selection with a dimmer for viewing movies, and provide a in theater experience. They also are convenient in a bedroom, kitchen, or bath to provide the lighting you need, where you need it without obtrusive hanging fixtures.
In addition, for those planning to sell their home in the near future, they offer a stylish upgrade that is highly sought after by potential buyers.
Tips for Recessed Lighting
To avoid dark areas, lighting should be spaced to provide overlapping of light. On the other hand, you want adequate lighting, but not too much. The last thing you want is a ceiling studded with recessed light fixtures. It is not an appealing effect to be sure!
