Indoor Lighting

Whether you are hunting through your closet for that perfect outfit or cooking up a delicious meal in the kitchen, having strong, clear lighting is vital. If the lighting in your home isn’t up to scratch, then you need HedgeHog Electric’s indoor lighting services.

Residential Indoor Lighting

It may sound funny, but many homes were constructed without proper consideration to the interior lighting needs.

For instance, older homes often have rooms where there are no light fixtures, leaving people relying on various lamps that take up valuable space in the room. Or, almost as annoying, there is a single light fixture that cannot possibly light the entire room, leaving areas in shadow.

Instead of struggling without the right lighting in your home, you can bring in HedgeHog Electric’s expertise electricians and add the perfect lighting solutions to your rooms. To help you identify what kind of lighting you may need, consider the three basic categories of lighting.

Ambient Lighting

The most common type of indoor lighting is ambient lighting. This type of lighting is meant to provide natural, soft light to a room like the light you would experience outdoors.

Most rooms need at least one source of ambient lighting. With one set source of ambient lighting, you never have to walk through a dark room tripping over things at you hunt for a lamp switch.

As for the light fixtures which are used for ambient lighting, there is a wide variety for you to pick from.

  • Flush mount light fixture
  • Semi-flush mount fixture
  • Ceiling fan with built-in light fixture
  • Recessed lights
  • Chandelier
  • Pendant light fixture
  • Vanity bar lighting

Naturally, not all homes have the same types of rooms, with some rooms having studies, formal front rooms, game rooms, home theaters, and more variation. However, the base types of these rooms are similar to the ones outlined above, and you can choose the lighting that is most appropriate for their type.

Accent Lighting

Often combined with ambient lighting is accent lighting. With accent lighting, this type of lighting usually added to a room for two reasons—bring more light to all corners and decor-enhancement. Many times, the ambient light fixture isn’t powerful enough to light all the corners of the room, so instead of huddling in the lighted areas, accent lighting can be installed.

Also, in rooms with only one light switch installed, our electricians can add more switches so that you can independently control the accent lighting separate from the ambient light.

As for the decor-enhancement of your accent lighting choice, that’s because you have a lot of flexibility and style options when it comes to accent light fixtures, ranging from things like stain glass wall sconces to bronze wire track lights.

In case you were wondering, decorative lamps also count as additional accent lighting, and they don’t need to be installed. However, if you don’t want to cover your available floor space or side tables with lamps, having accent lighting installed by our electricians can be a great way to utilize all your space and have it well-lit.

Task Lighting

Similar to accent lighting, task lighting adds to the ambient light of a room. However, task lighting is often for more utilitarian needs where you need good, strong lighting. Rooms like the kitchen and bathroom often have task lighting, as when people are in these rooms, they often need bright lighting to accomplish tasks ranging from dicing vegetables to makeup application.

Some of the types of light fixtures which are good for task lighting are:

  • Bar vanity light fixture
  • Track lighting
  • Recessed lighting
  • Under cabinet fixtures
  • Pendant light fixtures

HedgeHog Electric also offers lighting services for outdoor lighting so that you can have your entire home properly illuminated.

Energy-Efficient Indoor Lighting Solutions

Interior lighting can represent a source of significant energy drainage without the right solutions in place. But with the help of our electricians, you can have energy-efficient indoor lighting solutions installed into your home. Some of the solutions you may want to have installed are:

Smart lighting – How many times have you left the house to go to work or run errands, only to realize too late that you left the lights on? With smart lighting, you can control the lighting of your home whether or not you are there, saving both power and your light bulbs.

LED retrofit – LED light bulbs consume the least amount of energy out of all the light bulbs. You can have your current light fixtures retrofit so you can use LED lights, allowing you to save on your energy bills and extend the time between when you need to buy new bulbs.

Dimmer switches – You can lower the energy expenditure of your light bulbs when you utilize dimmer switches, as well as use them for attractive mood lighting.

Timers – Sometimes, you need lights on for a certain period of time, such as for aquariums. Instead of trying to constantly time when to turn on and off your lights, you can have our electricians install timers to take care of the tasks.

Indoor Lighting Repair and Replacement

Sometimes, a room light will inexplicably stop working, and no amount of bulb changes will make the fixture start working again. If this issue or other lighting problems crop up, you can count on HedgeHog Electric to help.

Along with wiring your home with new light fixtures, our electricians here at HedgeHog Electric can also make repairs to your current indoor lighting. They will be able to troubleshoot your lighting issue and make repairs if possible.

It is important to have trained professionals address lighting problems, as it can indicate a serious issue with the wiring and can represent a significant fire hazard.
