Here at Maryland Electrician Pros, one of our specialties is helping homeowners with lighting fixture replacement and repair. Aside from being a group of experienced, licensed and insured Maryland electricians, we have an eye for lighting design that can brighten and enhance a home. Replacing heavy, old bright brass fixtures, or cheap, builder-grade light fixtures with new, quality, energy-saving, light fixtures is also a relatively inexpensive way to give a home a facelift while cutting your energy bills at the same time. If you are considering a lighting fixture replacement project, consider the following first, and then give us a call with any questions you have.
Prioritize Your Lighting Fixture Replacement Plan
- If you plan to do a general light fixture replacement project around your whole house, start with the outside first. This is a simple and affordable way to enhance your home’s curb appeal.
- When replacing light fixtures indoors, replace the fixtures in the highest traffic areas first: start in the entryway or foyer, then move into the kitchen and family room. After the areas with the highest traffic are well lit, replace light fixtures in the hallways, bathrooms, and bedrooms.
- Consider energy efficiency when doing a lighting fixture replacement project. Not only do homeowners have a wide range of light bulb options, the fixtures themselves can affect how light is cast and reflected around a room so that less energy is used to effectively brighten more spaces.
- Put the lights in your home to best use: balance form and function when making light fixture choices. Recessed lighting, for example, can be used as general lighting, subject lighting (to highlight a particular work of art or feature in a room), or as task lighting in a kitchen or workshop.
