Recessed lighting, otherwise known as pot or can lighting, provides an upgrade in both lighting and the appearance of your home. This type of lighting sits flush with the ceiling, and offers the illusion of a higher ceiling and more open space. This is due to the lack of conventional fixtures hanging down. Recessed lighting is a popular option for any room, and is especially ideal for living rooms and home theaters. Contact Mister Sparky electrical contractors in Huntsville, AL for recessed lighting installation.
In addition, recessed lighting can be a step forward in saving you money on the cost of energy. LED lighting uses 85% less electricity than incandescent lighting, 50% less than CFL light bulbs, and 30% less energy than fluorescent lighting. LED lighting is by far the most energy efficient lighting available. In fact, you can save money in more ways than just through energy savings. While the lifespan varies between brands, LED light bulbs can last as long as 55,000 and even 70,000 hours of use. When you consider the difficulty required to change an outdoor bulb on a 15 ft. or taller light post, the complete value of LED lighting becomes apparent.
Indoors, LED lighting can also save you money and the effort of dragging out a ladder every year or so to change conventional bulbs. Recessed lighting is now available for LED bulbs, and this offers an additional benefit – safety. Unlike CFL light bulbs, LED bulbs do not contain mercury, and just as important, they produce significantly less heat than incandescent bulbs. Recessed lighting, when improperly installed can cause overheating in the attic, and house fires. Mister Sparky electrical contractors in Huntsville, AL can provide the professional installation you require, and your satisfaction is guaranteed.
Versatile Enough for Any Style
Recessed lighting offers the versatility of blending with any style. In addition, it is available in a variety of finishes and color. This versatility also extends to lighting use and needs. Adjustable recessed lighting is available, and can be used as accent lighting, spotlighting, ambient lighting and even task lighting.
In addition, dimmers are now available for led lighting, and can be used for your LED recessed lighting. However, if an incompatible dimmer is used with LED lighting, a buzzing noise may occur on the low level setting. The product package should list compatible dimmers for use. Typically, a CL dimmer or ELV dimmer will eliminate LED buzzing noise. Mister Sparky electrical contractors in Huntsville, AL can provide the professional installation of recessed lighting, with a quality compatible dimmer of your choice. Our goal is to provide you with first quality electrical service, and a trouble free experience with long lasting results.
