Home Lighting Trends in 2013

Stylish and Functional Home Improvements

Published on by: Mike Daniels

Energy Efficient Lighting

One of the top trends in home lighting in 2013 will be upgrading to fixtures and elements that save energy. LED lighting is perfect for lowering indoor energy consumption. Low voltage lighting is ideal for lowering outdoor energy consumption.

LED Lighting

LED Lighting Saves Energy and Produces Better Light Output

LED lighting will provide crisper, brighter lighting and lower energy costs. LED lighting is vastly superior to incandescent lighting and the very unpopular CFL lighting. To provide you with an idea on light output and energy consumption you can ponder this fact; a 7 watt LED light generates light output equal to a 40 watt incandescent bulb. There are many reasons to use LED lighting. Changing your home's lighting from traditional light bulbs to LED light bulbs does not require changing any fixtures or wiring. A professional electrician can change your home's system from incandescent to LED in a single day.

Low Voltage Lighting

Switching outdoor lighting to a low voltage system is relatively easy. As with LED indoor lighting, low voltage lighting provides great energy savings. Low voltage lighting typically uses only 33% of the amount of energy used by a 120-volt lighting system. Low voltage lighting, whether for security or accent lighting, can deliver the light you need for the job.

Some features of low voltage lighting include an ability to better illuminate your property without increasing energy consumption, a great selection of low wattage lamps (light bulbs), and a wide selection of timers, controls and fixtures.

Recessed Lighting is a Stylish and Smart Home Improvement

We believe that in 2013 there will be a continued trend to use recessed lighting, also known as canned lighting. Recessed lighting is anything but obtrusive and allows for better control of light disbursement. Recessed lighting looks better because it allows you to light a room with style and keep th light source relatively hidden.

The use of track lighting continues to be popular. Tracj lighting is especially popular with people who have unique lighting needs. Whether it is providing accent lighting on wall art or built in bookcases, or providing focused task lighting, track light systems offer a lot of functionality.

A skilled electrician can retrofit most homes with recessed light fixtures and track lighting. Bu using the existing wiring the new fixtures can be installed to work with your exisitng light switches and electrical circuit breakers.

For more information on ways to improve your home's lighting, get price quotes or energy saving information simply call a local electrician. Obviously we would enjoy speaking with you to answer any questions or provide a free estimate.
