Indoor Lighting from Safe and Sound Electric
From recessed lighting to chandeliers, we strive to create beautiful spaces indoors. Indoor lighting comes in many shapes, colors, and brightness levels, but can best be categorized in four different ways: General lighting, ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting.
General and Ambient Lighting
General lighting is the primary light source in a room, which is most often a ceiling light with or without a fan. This type of lighting provides a bright light for your room. Some additional forms of general lighting include track lighting and recessed lighting.
Ambient lighting also lights up large areas, but with a softer, more direct light. This type of lighting usually includes chandeliers, pendants, and the like.
Task lighting helps you to see while performing smaller tasks like cooking, reading, sewing, or computer work. It also helps improve alertness and concentration. Examples include under-cabinet lights, vanity lights, and swing-arm lamps. Some types of track lighting can also be used as task lighting.
Accent lights are small, bright, and concentrated on a single focal point to draw your attention to an area, illuminating artwork, furniture, and interesting details in your home. Wall sconces, recessed lighting, and spotlights fit into this category.
The four types of light work together to give your rooms a distinct look, help you see while you are doing tasks, and keep you safe as you are moving around.
Outdoor Lighting from Safe and Sound Electric
Outdoor lighting can completely change the look of your patio, backyard, or landscaping. Not only can it improve the curb appeal and add value to your home, it can also give you a renewed outdoor living space. We suggest a few different types of outdoor lighting:
The most basic and most valuable of the bunch, floodlights can help illuminate driveways, walkways, and other large areas. These lights are very bright and are installed to point down from the roof of your home.
These lights usually look like tiny mushrooms that are lit from underneath. Garden lights are soft, circular lights that bring attention to your landscaping and allow you and your guests to walk safely along dark walkways.
Spotlights & Wall Lights
Also known as uplights or downlights, these smaller lights add a layer of design to your home, creating interesting patterns or shapes in specific spaces. The spotlight’s cousin, the wall light, adds similar design details but is installed on the exterior, usually near a door or wall.
Motion Sensor Security Lights
Like floodlights, motion sensor lights give an outdoor space a bright light but are designed to turn on when they sense movement. Motion sensor lights are essential not only for your safety — avoiding a fall or trip in the dark — but also as part of a security system, letting you know when someone approaches your home.
When you are planning a lighting replacement, we recommend choosing fixtures that meet energy-efficient environmental regulations. These can lower your monthly utility bills, but they also add value to your home. An increasing number of states and cities are adopting regulations to encourage energy-efficient lighting.
By choosing one of these environmentally friendly lighting types, you can feel more confident about your energy usage.
Benefits of New Lighting
Do you want to create a new look for your home? Do you want to bring a relaxing ambiance to a new patio? Do you need to enhance the curb appeal of your property to get it sold for a great price?
No matter what your goals may be, lighting replacement can provide many benefits, both inside and out.
You will enjoy the benefits of new lighting. When your replacement includes energy-efficient lighting, you will save money, too. With a smart lighting upgrade, you will be able to adjust lights from the palm of your hand. Replacing outdated or dim lighting can create a new aesthetic for your home.
New lighting can breathe life into your home’s exterior, highlighting landscaping and architectural details that make your home unique. With outdoor patio lighting, your backyard turns into an extended living space. Floodlights and motion sensor lights can give you peace of mind that your home is safe and protected.
With these incredible benefits and the experience of Safe and Sound Electric, a newly transformed look for your home is well within reach.
Lighting Repair with Safe and Sound Electric
Not every homeowner needs brand-new lighting to give life to their indoor or outdoor areas. Some repairs include fixing faulty wiring in fixtures, broken or damaged lights, or short circuits.
Look for these signs to decide whether you should opt for lighting repair or lighting replacement:
- Repair when there are high-quality materials in the fixture
- Replace when corroded wires and connections are present
- Repair loose connections
- Replace arcing wires (electricity jumping or creating heat)
If you opt for a repair and find yourself in the same situation soon after, go ahead and splurge on a replacement the next time!
