Look over what type of appliances and home electronics your home has. Lighting and outlets can be replaced or may need work. Have you ever heard a light switch buzzing? There are plenty of opportunities for home improvement which electricians at Sanford Electric Company specialize in.

Have you noticed all of the crisp white and light grey home decor in magazines, home improvement shows, or stores lately? For the popular bright white and grey color themes for house decor, the LED is the best option for providing a clean and white light.
Other lighting can make a white wall appear to be tan or beige. Similarly, interior designers assisting in designing new homes recommend LED lighting. If you have an interior designer, schedule a meeting with your electrician present as well to choose the best lighting option for you.
Have you ever noticed how the paint colors look so different at home improvement stores? The displays are usually lit with LED lights which makes the paint color appear completely different once you’re home. LED lights are directional which are great for reading spaces.
Recessed downlight are often used in residential kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, and offices. The Department of Energy estimates there are around 500 million recessed downlights installed in U.S. homes each year. They are common for a number of reasons, so speak to your electrician about the installation process.
Energy star rated products can use about 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting. By 2027, the use of LED over incandescent lighting can save up to $30 billion at today’s electricity prices. This is around 44 large electric power plants worth of output.
LED Halloween lighting:
At the end of this month, home owners will be plugging in their Halloween decorations for trick-or-treating. Plenty of people decorate just as much as they would for Christmas. Because of this, it is safest to start incorporating more LED lights.
LED lights are safer because they are much cooler than incandescent lights. This reduces the risk of combustion or burnt fingers. LED lights are cooler to the touch which make them safer for animals and children.
Investing in LED holiday decor will pay off especially if you plan to keep them on for the entire month. LED lights last longer and are sturdier. LED are made with epoxy lenses instead of glass. Epoxy is stronger and is less likely to break.
You may buy stringed ghosts and goblins that will last up to 40 Halloween seasons! LED stringed lights prove to be easier to install. They can be connected end-to-end without overloading a wall socket.
