Have you ever walked into a room and thought, “Wow, it is not bright in here?” If you have, you have a poorly lit room. Believe it or not, there are a lot of rooms within homes that are not adequately lit and this can have an impact on you in a number of ways. Those ways are:
- You may be paying more on your energy bill for less light
- A dim room is a room you cannot see well in
- How much light is in a room can impact your mood
- An unevenly lit room can make it seem off balance
There are solutions to these problems with the main solution being upgrading your lighting. There are some fixtures that are simply placed wrong or they just don’t brighten your world very well. We can brighten your world for you because we are an electrician for St. Paul residents and businesses have trusted for many years to do such things as install new fixtures that will light up their lives better and even install additional lighting to a part of a room that never seems to get enough.
Energy Efficient Lighting
The first thing you want to think about when having new lighting installed is its energy efficiency and here is why: When paying your electric bill each month, approximately 40% of the money is paying for the lighting that you used. The rest goes toward the electric your appliances and electrical devices used. If you use energy efficient lighting, then you could cut that 40% by 30% and only pay 10% of what you have been paying. This may seem rather steep, but it’s the truth.
That “little light fixture that could” but couldn’t is costing you more than you think. But in the grand scheme of things, having new energy efficient fixtures installed is going to save you so much money that you’ll have your money back on the installation in the form of savings before you know it. You simply inform your St. Paul electrician that you want energy efficient lighting and it will be done.
Installing New Fixtures
What you want is lighting that is going to make the room more functional. If you have one of those rooms where one side is bright and the other is dark, then you have a room that was simply constructed unevenly. That’s not common. You may have a lamp on the dark side of the room, but that doesn’t always suffice when you are in a situation where more lighting is needed. And sometimes a fixture that is very bright doesn’t always help. This may require the installation of a new fixture on that side of the room, which is no problem. It can be operated by the same switch that operates the primary or it can have its own individual switch. You are the boss, so you call the shots.
