Recessed Lighting Remodeling Ideas

Recessed Lighting Remodeling Ideas

When renovating a home, lighting fixtures should also be reconsidered as it can accentuate the highlights of the whole remodeled living space. The transformation it brings into a newly remodeled space can spell a lot of difference in terms of putting a spotlight on areas that may have been improved around the house. With the many lighting choices available, Recessed Lighting remains to be a popular choice among homeowners as it is very versatile and can be used in almost if not all rooms in a home.

What is Recessed Lighting?

Recessed Lighting is when the light bulbs are pushed in unto the ceiling through a cylindrical hole. The light then emanates from that space, acting like a can or down light that beams illumination to any room. It can be used to accentuate certain areas in a home, or it can serve as the usual home lighting. It may appear inconspicuous unlike the usual ordinary lighting where the bulb sticks out of the ceiling, but it may be surprising to note that it delivers the same amount of lighting power than the ordinarily installed ones, if not, even brighter due to beam concentration.

Why Install Recessed Lighting?

Recessed lighting can greatly help in creating the illusion of a bigger home, and a taller ceiling. Compared to the usual ceiling lights that drop from the ceiling level, recessed lighting created cleaner lines, and an illusion of space that helps to not crowd a small room.

When ordinary ceiling lights are installed in a much smaller space, the area usually looks all the more smaller with a caved-in feel. This is not the case for recessed lighting because the lights do not protrude into the space of the room that is being lighted, instead it has its own hollow opening to shine at, and reflect light from.

When a light is mounted from the ceiling, it may look unappealing as well, as it gives an unfinished industrial look. If industrial look is your home theme then by all means go for ceiling mounted designs, but if you are leaning towards the minimalistic look, or cleaner lines, then having recessed lighting is the way to go.

What is great about the versatility of recessed lighting is that it can be great for bedrooms, and even in nurseries. It is also perfect for the kitchen as it gives an illusion of a bigger and cleaner space. It is also great as complimentary lights to a dining area with ceiling mounted light fixtures. A living area or a family room will also be adequately illuminated, and even enlarged by recessed lighting. IN fact evn home corridors would look bigger, brighter and cleaner with recessed lights.

Where is recessed lighting best installed in a home?

Recessed Lighting, as earlier mentioned, is chosen by more and more homeowners because of its versatility. It can work well in bedrooms as it tends to make resting and lounging spaces, brighter and wider. It can also be great for home offices, as it does not only properly illuminate a home work station, it also lends formality and appropriateness for a space where seriousness is in order.

Recessed lightings can also be a great choice for kitchens as brighter lights help in food preparation and cooking. Bright lights help a lot in ensuring proper illumination which is needed when cooking food. It can also work well in bathrooms, as it provides a cleaner and bigger feel, to the otherwise smallest room in the house. The family room and visitor reception areas can also be appropriate spaces for recessed lighting, as it can be your stand-alone choice, or it can complement accent mounted lighting like a chandelier or even a ceiling fan with lights.

So whether you are in the building phase, or you are in the process of renovating a home, we at Green Electric Solutions will be more than happy to help you with the installation of recessed lighting in your new abode. Call us up anytime for a free, no obligation cost estimate today.

Breakers and Fuses

Breakers and Fuses

Breakers or fuse boxes is the most integral part of electrical power supply in any home or commercial property. It is a home’s direct link to the power utility company, as it is the main gateway of the electricity that is being supplied from the service provider to the home or business establishment.

Apart from fuse box, the breaker is also called as an electrical panel or access panels as it is in reality, the one switch that has to be turned off to shut off power in any property. And just like any fixture in a home, it needs to be periodically maintained, upgraded and replaced as needed. Green Electric Solutions is the leading electrician contractor services that provide safe and durable electrical panel repair work, upgrades and replacement in the San Diego area.

Electrical Panel Upgrades

We at Green Electric Solutions have already mastered the art of Electrical Panel Upgrades, as we ensure that electricity flows safely and well into your property. Panel upgrades are usually needed as a home increases demand for electricity through the newly installed appliances or electrical equipment. Usual appliances that may demand additional power would be HVAC Systems, Refrigerators, and other appliance that consumes a higher volume of electricity.

Older homes would definitely need electrical panel upgrades as the whole system may no longer be compliant to the guidelines of the National Electric Code or NEC, and at the same time, can no longer supply the electricity demand of the whole property.

How it works

As electricity flows into your home or commercial property through electrical poles, the electrical panel or fuse box regulates the entry of power by allocating electricity into the many circuits inside your home. These circuits then provide electricity to outlets that in turn, supply power to your home appliances, or commercial equipment.

At Green Electric Solutions, your safety remains to be our priority. We endeavor to provide you accurate panel installations by ensuring that appropriate amp ratings are specified for every breaker, and that appliances that are required to have its own circuit ill have its own. By ensuring this, your electrical system remains protected from power surges or excessive electricity loads following a switching on of electricity right after a power interruption.

Should there be a need for additional power circuits, we will be more than happy to install these new dedicated power circuits in your home or commercial property.

Another reason for a panel upgrade is when a home appears to need more electrical power than the current capacity that its breaker can provide. The NEC guidelines provide that should the total electric usage exceed a panel or breaker’s total capacity, then the electrical panel should be upgraded. Such a service can only be implemented by licensed and professional electricians, and Green Electric Solutions has mastered the provisioning of this service. Should a permit be needed in installing a new fuse box, we will be more than happy to assist you with that to lessen the inconvenience on your part.

Peace of Mind

Apart from us assuring you that your safety remains to be our top priority, you can also rest assure that Green Electric Solutions is a licensed and certified electrician contractor service. We only employ expert, professional and licensed electricians whose backgrounds have been carefully checked for your security and peace of mind.

Our expert services have been duly recognized by the community through the Better Business Bureau, as well as the many unbiased feedback and reviews in various channels as well as word of mouth. More importantly, we are a fully insured and bonded company, so that in the remote possibility that something goes wrong with any of our installation, repair or upgrade services, you can always file for insurance claims in view of the damages.

There is virtually no risk, as we also provide free no-obligation inspections, and complimentary cost estimates to help you decide on whether too avail of our electrical panel upgrade services.

If you are in the market to purchase a new home or commercial property, it will be in your best interest to have Green Electric Solutions check on the Electrical Panel of the property you are eyeing. Our electrical inspection service will determine for you whether a panel upgrade is due, and that this cost can be mentioned to your property agent.

Usually, homes that have been constructed more than 40 years ago have fuse boxes or electrical panels that can no longer supply the power requirement of home appliances and electronic equipment of our time. And since the capacity of a panel should never be exceeded by the demand in power, or usage, an upgrade will be required to make the whole property adhere to existing NEC guidelines. Adhering to the NEC guidelines would mean protection from electrical-related injuries and fire accidents. At Green Electric Solutions we have the appropriate equipment to test whether electrical panels need repair or upgrading.

Federal Pacific Electric and Zinsco Electrical Panels

Homes that have been built more than 30 years ago may come with Federal Pacific Electric and Zinsco Electrical Panels, which have now been rendered unsafe for use in any property. Unfortunately the technology used in these panels may no longer protect from short circuits and power surges. When those can no longer be prevented electrical wirings within the home can overheat, melt, and cause fire accidents. To address any concern, we will be more than willing to conduct an electrical safety inspection in your home and draw up a free estimate on the possible charges that will be incurred for the possible repair or upgrade.

The Benefits of Electrical Panel Upgrades

If you are still convincing yourself on whether to upgrade your electrical panels, then you may want to read on to see the many advantages of getting a panel upgrade. Here are some that you may want to consider:

  1. If you live in an older home, and you want to maximize the efficiency of the new appliances and electronic devices that you have, then an upgrade will be best. An updated panel of say 200 amp capacity is way better in supplying electricity to modern electrical appliances compared to the 100 amp that it supplies to the home appliances being used some three or more decades ago.
  2. If you want to ensure the safety of your family, and the security of your property then an upgrade is the way to go. Overheating circuits due to exceeding power usage will no longer be a concerned, and fires due to faulty electrical wiring can be kept at bay.
  3. Having an electrical panel upgrade would also mean that you ad your family, or employees will have more access to electricity. More power outlets can be installed throughout the property with the updating of a fuse box or electrical panel.
  4. If you are remodeling your home, it will also be best to seek the advice of a professional electrician contractor. An expert electrician can evaluate whether you will need a panel upgrade or not.

Surge Protection San Diego Electrician

Surge Protection in San Diego

Surge protection is important when trying to ensure the soundness of appliances in a home, sets of equipment in commercial establishments, as well as the safety and protection of the whole property should an electrical surge take place. Electrical surges occur when a sudden spike in electrical power or voltage is supplied in your system, affecting the appliances currently being used at the time of the surge. Common reasons for electrical surges include sudden switching on of power from the electrical service provider, following a black-out or power outage. It could also come from lightning strikes, fallen power poles, as well as damaged power lines. More importantly, electrical surges can also travel through internet and cable television circuit connection, as well as landline phone wiring systems.

Any surge in electricity could damage costly appliances and expensive commercial and industrial equipment. These surges can at the same time cause electrical accidents. Availing surge protection service is definitely a worthwhile investment considering the total cost of possible repairs and replacements that could be spent should an electrical surge cause damage to existing appliances and cause unfortunate electrical-related injuries and fires.

How much will surge protection cost?

To be safe, surge protection can only cost a small fraction of the total cost of equipment or appliances in any home. At Green Electric Solutions we see to it that we provide free, no obligation cost estimates to help property owners decide on whether to avail of the service or not.

Once we have installed these surge protectors in your home or commercial property, you can rest assure that whatever the cause of surge in electrical power, your appliances or commercial and industrial equipment will all be free from damage.

We will also provide a warranty for the surge protection – meaning if and when appliances or your set of equipment incurs damage during an electrical surge, you may file for insurance claims so that if and when damage is indeed determined, a reimbursement can be given to cover the damages.

What are the chances of an electrical surge taking place?

Electrical surges can take place anytime. Lightning for instance may strike all year round, in fact, statistics show that 30% of black-outs or electrical outages are due to lightning strikes. A survey on North American households also indicated that about 35 power disruptions take place annually on a five-year duration.

In addition, deregulated electric utility services is seen as a somehow potential reason for a possible lowering of quality of electrical supply services, hence more outages, and sudden switching of electricity that can give way to surges.

In the end, availing of surge protection services remains to be a very affordable and practical move to protect appliances and the rest of the home from getting damaged during sudden power jolts.

Children can be a very vulnerable group when it comes to electrical safety. They do not know what can hurt them and they are naturally curious individuals.

Electricians can help in the upgrade to High Efficiency Appliances

Electricians can help a lot in educating kids on how to behave around electrical fixtures, and what safety considerations they should take. So a brief chit chat would be beneficial to them.

GEN3 Electric shared electrical safety measures children should take. American Lighting Association  

“Each day, nearly 7 children are treated in hospital emergency rooms for electrical shock or burn injuries. Keep this in mind as we move into the holiday season and share these electrical safety tips with your children: Spilled drinks can cause electrical shock. Remind your children to keep their drinks away from electric outlets, extension cords and electronic devices; Never stick fingers or foreign objects into an electrical outlet or light bulb socket.”

Electrical Safety for kids

Cherryland Electric Cooperative also shared more safety measures that should be taught to children. Master Electrician 

“Electricity is a dynamic power source. Many home electrical fires, injuries and electrocutions can be prevented when we understand and practice electrical safety. This is especially true for our youngest co-op members. Remember the rules for using electricity the right way. 1. DON’T plug a bunch of stuff into one outlet or extension cord. It could damage the electrical system in your house or even cause a fire. Show children how plugs work, and let them know that even if they are curious about the slits of an electrical outlet, nothing else should be placed inside. Our reliance on electronics and gadgets is a risk when family members overcrowd electrical outlets, continue to use frayed wires, place devices near liquids or leave electronics on for long periods of time.”
