Illuminations Lighting and Design offers a full-service repertoire of electrical remodeling services to Houston and Greater Texas customers. Electrical remodeling often requires knowledge of more than electronic components and installation techniques. A good electrician has to understand home architecture and be able to remodel the home’s electrical system with minimal damage and maximum efficiency. It takes years to acquire the training and experience in electrical remodeling that our staff carries, and the variety of home styles and sizes we frequently upgrade speaks volumes to a professionalism and ingenuity unique to our vertical market.
Electrical remodeling often goes had in hand with home expansion. Any time a homeowner decides to add a new bedroom, expand the den into an automated home office for an entrepreneurial vision, or even adds a deck wired to a home automation system, it inevitably follows that new circuits need to be added to accommodate the lighting requirements of the expansion. While there are many excellent resources on how to remodel the electrical aspects of home expansion, it remains wise to let professionals install new circuits and panels to ensure not only safety but maximum cost effectiveness and efficiency. ILD spends years training and certifying its technicians in advanced circuit configurations and panel upgrades, and we can apply these skills not only in traditional electrical configurations, but we can also adapt them to custom homes and home automation systems that require electrical remodeling.
Sometimes electrical remodeling only consists of simple additions to lighting and comfort that typical home remodeling contractors do not provide. If your smoke detectors have become outdated or malfunctioning, we can install new ones that are state of the art and fully compliant with all safety codes. If you want to upgrade the electrical lighting in your home, consider letting ILD install dimmer controls to lighten and darken the room at will to any degree of illumination you desire. If the Texas summer starts to tax your light bill after April 15th taxes your income, then consider calling us to install ceiling fans throughout your home. We carry top-name manufacturers and styles of all kinds that will make your home more beautiful—and comfortable— from May till September—at a fraction of the cost of running the AC night and day. Our electrical remodeling specialists have acquired years of design skills on top of their technical abilities, and they can dual function as aesthetic consultants as well as technical experts.
Sometimes an older home needs electrical remodeling simply to make things work better and to reduce the risk of electrical failure and/or fire. During the mid twentieth century, many builders used aluminum to wire home electrical systems. While aluminum itself is not a fire hazard, the ends of aluminum wire often burn out and disconnect from circuit panels, causing fluctuations in lighting and short circuits in outlets. If you live in an older home with aluminum wiring and notice that your lights often flicker, call ILD immediately and let us troubleshoot for possible shorts in the walls, outlets, and panels. If we find a short resultant from aluminum wiring, we can remodel selective electrical components without having to replace 100% aluminum wire in the home. Using a process called pig tailing, we attach copper wire to the ends of the aluminum to create a more secure and stable connection. We can also remodel your electrical plugs and switches to make them fully compatible with aluminum wiring. While we are there, we can also install outdoor security lighting as part of your electrical remodeling package to ensure that even an old fixer upper enjoys the same level of safety as newer homes with contemporary security features.
