Indoor/Outdoor Lighting

Have you been thinking about how a new light fixture would make your dining room look more modern? Or, you need bright, functional light for your home office or garage. Perhaps, you are looking to improve a business office or workspace with lighting. It is true, great electrical lighting is important from both a functional and cosmetic angle. But, light installation is not a project you should tackle alone. Discover more details about this project and why you need a pro on your side.


Unlike installing decor or hanging wallpaper, light installation can be a challenge. You are working with electricity. You may have to run wiring to an area if it is not already wired. Plus, you have to connect the light to existing wiring. If it is a hanging light, the fixture must be secure to eliminate danger of it falling from the fixture weight. Most lights will have a switch or dial somewhere too. Finally, there are cosmetic issues to think about. You want to attach the fixture flush with the ceiling or wall where there are no seams or lumps. Installing lights is a bigger job than most people think and requires care and knowledge.


It is important to understand that each type of light requires different installation. Installing recessed lighting requires different techniques than a ceiling fan/light combo. Light installation outdoors is especially complex. After all, not only does the light have to function and look good but it must be able to stand up to the elements. Plus these are the lights most often connected to security systems or timers.


A general contractor or handyman may be able to complete simple electrical lighting installations. However, the big jobs are best left to a licensed electrician. An electrician will install a light to be functional and attractive. But most important, the electrical lighting installation will be safe and secure. If a light is not correctly installed, it can be a safety hazard that could lead to electrocution or fire. The team at Day1 Electric treats every light installation with the utmost care.
