Energy rates and bills seem to be soaring. But there are steps homeowners can take to slow or stop the increase in energy bills. One of the best places to start is residential lighting. Home lighting renovations for boosting energy efficiency can be applied to new home construction or renovations on existing homes.
Lighting is an essential part of any home. And Pax Electrical Installations Ltd. in Edmonton offers various professional services to help turn your home into a more energy-efficient space.
Convert to LED lighting
Any residential lighting, whether interior or exterior, can be replaced with LED bulbs. Many older homes were fitted initially with standard incandescent bulbs. However, both fluorescent and LED bulbs beat out incandescent bulbs in efficiency and average lifespan. But fluorescent lighting gives off a white light, which can be less pleasing than the glow of yellower lights.
LED lamps can offer you both white and yellow lighting. And you can replace old holiday lights with LEDs for bulbs that won’t heat up. Pax Electrical Installations will ensure you have the correct type of LED fixtures and bulbs for your interior or exterior. And their Master Journeyman electricians can suggest which energy-saving bulbs are best in different areas.
Add sensors or dimmer switches.
We often don’t need to use all of the light we get when we flip on a switch. Sometimes, the lighting can be too harsh or bright and too much for what we need. But lighting accessories like motion sensors or dimmer switches help eliminate that unnecessary energy consumption.
In addition, a motion sensor can be helpful for anyone who is forgetful about turning off lights. And they can provide additional security to home exteriors. Dimmer switches offer a similar function and allow you to control the amount of light produced by one bulb. Plus, sometimes it’s nice to dim the lights to set the mood!
