Spring Home Improvement Ideas

Spring Time Home Improvement Projects

Published on by: Mike Daniels

The weather is improving which means people often begin to think about home improvement projects that require a licensed electrician. These projects range from replacing high ceiling lights or upgrading interior light fixtures to installing outdoor accent or security lighting systems. If you’re planning such projects it makes sense to get an estimate on materials and electrical labor.

Indoor Electrical Projects

LED Lighting Upgrades

Changing your indoor lighting to energy efficient LED lighting and light bulbs is extremely popular. Besides showing your family and friends that you’re at the forefront of design, your largest benefit will be saving money on your electrical bills. LED lighting does cost more than traditional light bulbs however; in a matter of years you will recoup your investment and continue to save money.

LED lighting benefits include reducing energy costs by as much as 75%, reducing maintenance costs and brightness is usually greater and crisper than your current lighting.

Replacing Outdated Electrical Fixtures

When good weather arrives people naturally begin to invite friends and family to their home. Before the entertaining season begins home owners often change out old light fixtures, wall receptacles and switches. Another popular service is installing recessed lighting in existing ceilings or as part of a home remodeling project.

Replacing burned out light bulbs in recessed lighting is not always easy. Reaching fixtures in high ceilings, knowing what type of bulb to install and finding the time to do the work is a challenge for many home owners. The surest way to avoid injury and get the job done properly is to call an electrician. Besides replacing the light bulbs (lamps) an electrician can explain to you how light bulb selection can change the look of your room. Increasing or lowering the wattage, choosing between a spot or flood light and even using colored lights can add new visual appeal to your rooms.

Outdoor Electrical Projects

Security Lighting

Outdoor security lighting is never a bad idea, and in tough economic times crime goes up which means installing security lights in 2014 is a very good idea. Many of the outdoor security light fixtures we install have motion sensors. Motion sensors save electricity by allowing light only when you need it versus having a simple fixture that continually uses electricity. We can install simple two or three lamp fixtures for driveways and decks or full yard lighting systems. It’s worth mentioning here that we can also install gate controls and keyless entry systems.

Accent Lighting

Outdoor accent lighting can provide visual appeal in an otherwise dark yard where landscaping cannot be seen. Having accent lighting near doors and windows also provides a measure of security lighting. Many of our outdoor accent lighting projects include installing standard or colored lights at pool areas, in trees or landscaped areas as well as around the home. We can design and install a complete system including providing low voltage wiring, fixtures and controls.

We invite you to contact us to discuss your ideas, get a free estimate or schedule for the work to be done.

  3. We're hoping to get some electrical work done on our house this summer, during our renovations. We heard about those room controls, so we might like one of those. Our electricians have been pretty accommodating with our needs so far. Thiago | http://www.dunedinelectric.com/services/residential-service/

  8. I am acquiring a few apartments to rent out. I am worried that someone may have problems after business hours. Is it acceptable to employ a 24 hour electrician for my needs?

  9. I have a really old house and the one thing we need to do is fixing the old electrical fixtures. We have some outlets that won't even hold the plug in them. They're so worn out and I'm afraid someone will get shocked or something.

  10. I had never really thought about lights as being security before. I just thought my parents liked the look of having the front porch light on. I figured out later what they really did it for.

    1. I thought that was an interesting perspective too. I had never thought about outside lighting being essential to home security. If you think about it, though, the more light that surrounds your house the less likely people are to approach it. They'll probably think someone is home or that they'll be in risk of being seen by the neighbors. I think it's a really simple and worthwhile investment to have outdoor lighting installed. http://www.dndenergy.com

  11. My friends are trying to find an electrician that can come help them any time. I didn't know that there were some electricians that work 24 hours. It would help when there is something like a blackout. http://www.easthawthornelectrical.com.au/

  13. When it comes to messing with electrical stuff, I have no idea what I'm doing. I attempted once to do some rewiring on a couple of light switches in my home and that ended up being a disaster. I'm grateful for electricians and how much they do to help people like me who don't know what they are doing.

  16. I have been considering converting most of my lighting to LED. I've heard they last a lot longer and they use a lot less energy. It would be great to save on my energy bill every month. I didn't realize how much work actually went into converting the lights to LED though. It's definitely a job for an electrical contractor, like you said. http://www.chadwickelectric.com

  17. Does the use of LED lighting really help the electric bills as everyone says? If that is so, I would love to get save some money on my electrical bill. I have also heard that LED is pretty safe for electricians to work with as well because it doesn't heat up. It would make fixing all those electrical problems a lot easier I would think. http://www.advantageelectricians.com/minneapolis-electricians

  20. I think I am going to need an electrician to help me with some indoor projects. I want to put up some lights for when we watch movies. I am nervous to do it myself and don't have all of the tools. How much does an electrician usually charge to do this kind of work? http://www.rrelectricalco.com

  21. When it becomes spring time, I am always having the electrical components of my home checked by an electrician. That way I know that things are going the way that they are suppose to and if there are any kind of issues, they are going to be well taken care of. There have been plenty of times when things had gone wrong and I had no idea that there was something wrong until the electrician pointed it out. That right there is why I am happy that I can get these check ups done on a regular basis.
