Savings and Other Advantages of a Recessed Lighting Retrofit

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 10.05.57 AMIf you are looking for ways to reduce your annual energy bills for your home, have you considered a retrofit for the old indoor lighting? This job is a great way not only to lower your electrical bills by eliminating inefficient older lighting fixtures, but also to give the interior of your home a fresh look and make it more convenient and safe.

One option for revamping your indoor lighting is to contact professionals to do a recessed lighting retrofit. Our new recessed lighting retrofit uses 5 watts instead of 100 watts. That will add up to tremendous energy savings over even the short term. But there are a number of other reasons you might want to have recessed lighting for your house:

  • Wall washing: This is a lighting effect that recessed lighting creates by “washing” the walls with overlapping light. This creates illumination that is bright without being harsh, and it also makes rooms feel larger and more cheerful.
  • Enhanced space: There’s another way that recessed lighting helps create a bigger sense of space in a room: it takes away the need for hanging fixtures that can create a visual clutter.
  • Accent lighting: Recessed lighting is perfect for creating accent lighting to highlight specific features in a room, such as a hanging wall painting, a collector’s case, or a bookshelf.
  • Better protection: The new, high-efficiency bulbs already last much longer than standard bulbs. And when the bulbs are recessed, they’re further protected from accidental damage—and they’ll collect less dust as well.

We must emphasize that you should only hire licensed professional electricians to take care of a recessed lighting retrofit. This not only ensures that the job is done correctly, but that it’s also done safely.
