Residential electrical services provide a wide array of services, including installing lighting. Residential electrical services are a great resource for all your lighting installation needs. According to the Department of Energy, energy use in the United States is at the same level it was in 2000, largely, thanks to energy-efficient measures like energy-efficient lighting. Here are some tips for where you should place lighting in your home.

1. Efficient Energy Lighting

If your home is over twenty years old, it is time to change your lighting for energy-efficient lighting options. Today’s lighting is highly energy efficient. You can have the bright task lighting you need and ambient lighting you want without running up your energy bill. Choose lighting that is energy efficient to replace your old lighting. This type of lighting is available in a wide range of styles. You can find the perfect lighting for your space that reflects your home’s style that is also energy efficient.

2. Task Lighting

Task lighting provides bright light to manage specific tasks. For example, pendant lighting over a kitchen counter area provides direct “task” lighting, making it easier to do what you need. The same is true of “reading lights.” There are areas of your home that can benefit from task lighting. Task lighting is ideal for kitchen counters, bathroom mirrors, and any other area where you need a direct source of lighting. Task lighting is a direct beam of light that focuses on a specific area.

3. Ambient Lighting

Ambient light fixtures fill the whole room with light. A good example of an ambient lighting fixture is a light that is ceiling mounted. A chandelier can also be an ambient lighting source. Every room should have some form of ambient light and some form of task lighting. Choosing the right lighting is essential to creating the aesthetic you want in your home. There are many things to consider and equally many styles to choose from. The good news is you don’t have to do it alone.
