Thinking About Installing Recessed Lighting in Your Genesee County Home?


recessed lighting electrician flint grand blancIs there a room in your home that always feels like it’s dimly lit, no matter how many lamps are on? Or are there dark areas that your overhead lights just don’t reach? Adding recessed lighting to one or more rooms in your home may be just the answer to these problems.

Many homeowners in Flushing, Pontiac, Grand Blanc, and Flint install recessed lighting to solve their lighting problems, but many also do so because it gives their home a more updated look. Pretty much any style of home—from modern to traditional—looks great with recessed lighting!

There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to installing recessed lighting in your home. Things like:

  • How many lights do you need for the size of the room?
  • How far apart should the individual lights be placed?
  • Should all of the lights be on one switch, or would it be beneficial to have more than one zone?
  • Do you want the lights on a dimmer switch?
  • Where is the best spot for the control(s)?
  • Will the lights be used for lighting a whole room, or for task lighting?
  • Do you want to use LED or incandescent bulbs?

As you can see, there are many considerations when it comes to adding recessed lighting to a room or multiple rooms in your Genesee County home. As experienced electricians, we can help you determine the best setup for your home, based on your needs and how you use your space.

The kitchen is the most common room in which people install recessed lighting, but pretty much any room in your home is a good candidate for this type of lighting. Recessed lights are great in living rooms, offices, hallways, and even above the shower in your bathroom.

If you decide to install recessed lighting, you might also want to consider making the switch to LED light bulbs at the same time. As we’re sure you’ve heard, LED light bulbs use less energy and are longer lasting than incandescent bulbs. So even though they are typically more expensive up front, you will be saving money in the long run by going with LED lighting in your home.

We know there are many online tutorials that will tell you that installing recessed lights is a simple DIY project, but unless you have experience with electrical work, this is a job best left to a licensed Genesee County electrician.
