Recessed Lighting

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Chances are you have recessed lighting somewhere in your house. If you don't we should have a difference conversation about installing some for you. BUT assuming you already have it, there's a possibility that the trims are old, dusty, the wrong color, possibly broken. That is not even touching on the likely worn & yellowed light bulbs manufactured in 1910 that ought to be replaced as well. Sound about right?

What if there existed a place where qualified, customer service oriented, kind and creative people combined forces and provided services such as recessed lighting upgrades for fair and honest prices? We think if you knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that these services existed you would be pretty excited about it.

Electricity can be intimidating can't it? To the point where at times you waited for someone else to change the light bulb because you didn't want to get zapped right? Well, all joking aside, we would be happy to come take a look at your existing can lighting and propose a new trim, lamp and dimmer switch to match your existing can lights. LED inserts are more affordable now too as the market is being saturated with new products.

Finding you an affordable retrofit solution is as easy as taking down existing information, sourcing new product, sending you the quote, ordering product and installation. No sweat... You get a fresh look, possible energy savings, and a range of dimming too.

For your visual pleasure see photos of such a retrofit below.


Above is the inside of the existing 6" can light housing.


Above is the existing trim.


The scenario above uses a new standard trim but has an LED lamp. 


This LED Insert shown above has a smooth frosted lens over the LED's. Its a really clean look.


Another LED style insert shown above. See how the lamp and the trim are one piece?

Realistically, there are several additional styles of LED lighting that can upgrade any home, and we've been impressed with the dropping prices.

Trying out your new look in one room is a great place to start.
Thanks for checking in...
