The Advantages of Lighting Control Installations

There is much more than meets the eye when it comes to lighting control installations.  Sure, the whole setup is neat when you’ve got it all set up, but shining light in tricky areas that are otherwise light is just part of the package.  Did you know that lighting control installations can save you a lot of money?

Here’s how it works.

  1. Light accounts for about 20 percent of your electric bill, but lighting control installations can help minimize that amount by making sure that light is used more effectively.  Sometimes all it takes is changing where the lights are located or which way the bulbs point.  An expert in lighting control installations will examine your home and look for minor adjustments that can add up to big savings on your electric bill.
  2. Lower intensities not only save you money, but make your home look better.  It’s true that we need a certain amount of light to see, but higher light intensities can be hard on the eyes.  While you’re trying to light your home, you just might be creating headaches for yourself literally if the lights are too bright.  Lighting control installations will allow you to use lower intensity bulbs throughout your home.
  3. You’ll spend less money on light bulbs each year.  When you have lighting control installations in place, using lower intensity bulbs will make them last 35 percent longer.
  4. Sometimes having the right lighting is less about saving money and more about the décor.  Lighting control installations cover all the bases, allowing you to create custom lighting experiences throughout your home.  If you feel like you’ve never got enough light in one particular area, a professional can help you figure it out.  Lighting is also an important part of the décor, so lighting control installations can be used to highlight parts of the room as well.

Lighting is one part of the home that is often overlooked until there is not enough light for a particular task.  But when you take control of the lighting in your home, the opportunities are unlimited.  Northern Lakes AV provides lighting control installations that will save you money and also make your home look stunning.  You can’t afford to forget about lighting until it is too late.  It should be part of your regular plan and also play a major role when it comes to making your home more energy efficient.
