General Lighting Services Perth
We light up every room we enter!
One of the most important elements to get right in your home is the lighting, it’s the difference between bright and natural, or dark and moody. Lighting determines if your house feels like a home, or a hospital. Whether you are after bright and natural lighting to open up your bathroom and kitchen, or a warm glow for the living room- we’ve got you covered with lights and installation that’ll tick all your boxes. Bump up the ambience with downlights or sensors, and install security lights to help you find your keys and the keyhole.
Lighting Installation & Wiring
Lighting and wiring installation always begins with a well thought-out plan. The location of light switches is important, more than most people realise, ever been in a house and thought to yourself, ‘This light switch just isn’t right- it should be over there!’, well so have we. Structural features should also be taken into consideration as well as the furniture layout. A chandelier may look fantastic in the bedroom- but will it cost a fan needed for hot and stuffy Summer nights?
Some common things to think about with residential lighting are the amount and location of power outlets you need, how best to complement natural lighting in the bathrooms and kitchen areas, and the use of dimmers in bedrooms or living rooms. As well as providing comfort and style, lighting is also important for safety and security. We don’t just do bedroom mood setters- we can also supply and install floodlights, porch lights and party lights.
Maintenance & repairs
As with anything, electrical systems age and deteriorate. Wall sockets and light switches get worn down with repeated use and eventually start to fail or break. When this inevitably happens, it’s time for some maintenance and repairs. While maintenance and repairs in general seem pretty easy, it’s important to remember that even if you think you’ve got this, electrical work still requires a licensed electrician in Perth. Don’t risk getting turned away by your insurance because you were 99% sure that black wire went there and the red over there.
Electricity is also dangerous enough when systems are new and in good repair, but after they’re old and worn out, or even potentially water damaged and busted- it’s even more dangerous. Sometimes even the most careful electricians miss something, so leave it to the professionals! Not only does that mean you’re safe, the jobs ensured and you don’t have to figure it out yourself- you don’t have to figure it out yourself! We’re a team of competent, capable and reliable sparkies absolutely willing to climb into your red-back infested roof space so you don’t have to. All our work carries a comprehensive guarantee, and guarantees you won’t get electrocuted changing a light switch.
Electricity is expensive, especially in Perth. With only one energy provider, we don’t have the luxury of shopping around for a cheaper rate- so counting the KiloWatts is important. You might have found yourself wondering, ‘Why is my power bill so high?’ If you have ever wondered if there’s a little goblin sneaking into your house at night to turn all the lights on, give us a call- we’re pretty good at catching the cheeky buggers! Our team can quickly locate appliances using more than their fair share, or inefficient lighting setups and can even install new systems to do the remembering to turn lights off for you (think sensor lights in hallways and bathrooms). Sensor lights that automatically switch on, and off are a brilliant idea to light your way to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and keep the power bill low the rest of the time.
Another reason for your high power bill may be ancient lighting setups producing more heat than light. We can replace these setups with new technology such as LED lighting for up to 85% more efficiency. LEDs are also environmentally friendly, reduce greenhouse emissions and last a lot longer than other types of lighting. All this while still allowing for a variety of lighting types such as natural or lowlight- the idea that LEDs are always bright and white is a myth!
