Many times, this involves the installation of Chelmsford, MA electrical appliances and equipment: home theaters, kitchen appliances, and more.

First off, we need to stop here and mention that it’s important to make sure your home has the voltage to take on all these extra electrical installations. Could you use an electrical panel upgrade? Depending on how old your home is and how old your electrical system is, you could need a new panel and new wiring. Once you’ve taken care of that, you’d do well to consider the following electrical additions!

Recessed Lighting

Recessed lighting has become increasingly popular, and is an attractive way to use lighting in order to accent certain areas in your living space without obstructive lighting fixtures. In addition, it creates an illusion of more space within the room it’s installed. Also, you can put them on a dimmer switch so they give an unobtrusive subtle glow.

This type of lighting is often adjusted to provide a nice ambient environment, or even spot lighting if you have specific areas or artwork you’d like to highlight in your home. These lights also work very efficiently, and they’re versatile in that you can have them installed pretty much anywhere in your home.

Under-Cabinet Lighting

This is a fairly basic and relatively inexpensive way to add visual depth and task efficiency to the most used areas of your home. Many homeowners enjoy it in their kitchens, but it can add a lot of aesthetic appeal to just about any space.

Our technicians can install this lighting quickly and accurately, and it’s at least one installation that contributes to safety too, specifically in the kitchen. When you can see the food you’re cutting and preparing more easily, you’re less likely to have an incident.

Paddle-Style Ceiling Fan

There are many benefits to installing a ceiling fan in your home. A ceiling fan helps your cooling system work more efficiently, first off. That is, while it doesn’t lower the temperature of the space it’s in, it helps to more evenly distribute the cooled air coming from your air conditioner. You can also reverse the direction of the blades during the winter and it can do the same for your heating system.

Your HVAC systems won’t have to work as hard to do their job, which leaves you saving energy, and subsequently, money. Plus, you don’t have to worry about having an unattractive ceiling fan. There are many visually appealing ceiling fans on the market, including paddle fans.

These are just a few examples of electrical additions you can make to your home that will improve your home’s visual appeal and comfort—and they don’t have to cost a lot! We’re happy to share more tips with you when you give our team a call.
