Lighting tips from a GESCA electrician

Every homeowner should consider using high-quality ambient lighting for better illumination indoors. Examples of ambient lighting include traditional recessed lighting or downlights, ceiling or wall-mounted lighting fixtures, track lights, floor or table lamps, and chandeliers. These ambient lighting fixtures not only brighten up space during daytime and nighttime it also adds an aesthetic dimension to any home.

Ambient lighting is best installed and wired by a licensed residential electrician. Some homeowners may think they can get by with installing their lighting but this should never be the case. Self-installation, or troubleshooting when an issue arises, can lead to accidents and property damage.

Ambient outdoor lighting installed by an electrician

The outdoors also requires ambient lighting. Apart from illuminating these areas, ambient outdoor lighting boosts perimeter security in any residential property. Some examples of ambient outdoor lighting include recessed fixtures, spotlights, wall lighting, garage lighting, canopy lighting, hanging light fixtures, and lantern posts.

GESCA Electricians say that hiring a licensed electrician to install or repair ambient outdoor lighting is a must. For one, professionals can determine the type and quality of the ambient lighting for installation. It should have outdoor safety ratings that indicate that these fixtures are weather resistant.

Installing Task Lighting

Task lighting is important in any home. It makes sure that studying, working from home, cooking, among other indoor activities, are well lit. Examples of task lighting include downlights, directional lighting fixtures, slimline bar, under the cabinet lighting usually used in kitchens, portable lamps such as desk lamps.

Kitchen lighting is best executed by residential electricians in San Diego since they have the equipment and expertise to efficiently carry out such a task.
