Illuminations Lighting Design knows that the possibilities for your home are much more powerful, versatile, and let’s be honest, really cool, than ever before. The idea of having a private home theater, with surround sound, a popcorn machine, a cold drink dispenser, and comfy chairs—complete with a ceiling mounted LED or DLP projector and a 120-inch screen—was unheard of. It was more in the realm of Hollywood millionaires than ordinary citizens.
Now the formerly extraordinary people will need to find something else to distinguish themselves because now you can have them, too. Of course, such things also require us to look at new wiring requirements such as protecting wiring from “crosstalk” which can manifest itself as noise in your sound system, cause interference in your Wi-Fi network or data transmission, or just simply be inadequate for the task. Installing (for example) low-voltage dimmable theater lighting requires thoughtful planning.
The New Normal
Nowadays people want conveniences such as under-floor electrical heating in bathrooms (who doesn’t hate cold tile on bare feet?), gorgeous landscape and architectural lighting for your home, or even fairy lights throughout their garden to create a mood for your guests after the Barbeque.
Surprisingly, all new lighting can be accomplished with LED lighting. It provides the full spectrum of color needed to make your environment look completely natural, all while saving you up to 90% of your lighting budget. Take a peek here to consider some of the possibilities!
Communication wiring (if you still have hardwired phones) can make it easy to plug in a phone wherever you need one. Comms wiring also includes data wiring so you can still get an internet connection when you need one out by the pool, in the barn, or way off in the back-forty somewhere. Hardwire, and RF (Radio Frequency) works together to make sure you’re covered.
Our designers and electricians from Illuminations Lighting Design are trained in these sophisticated new home wiring systems; they understand how to lay them out and install them. And the truth is, we routinely work with architects, interior designers, and general contractors to design, engineer, integrate, and consolidate these features into the basic house wiring. Regardless of the size, age or complexity of your home, the professionals at Illuminations Lighting Design will get the wiring done right the first time.
Electrical Remodeling for Existing Homes
Our electricians understand construction techniques and wiring methods and possess the knowledge to anticipate obstructions to efficiently work around them and conquer such challenges. This ability only derives from years of hands-on experience in home remodeling.
Some companies won’t even consider chandelier installations because of the (often immense) value and inherent risk. They know that they don’t understand structure well enough to undertake something so important. Don’t worry though because our builders and installers do understand. We can handle virtually anything you can throw at us, whether it is high-value, or high-difficulty. Our number one priority is safety and protecting your property.
Outdoor Landscape Lighting
Outdoor Landscape Lighting comes with some inherent challenges and should only be handled by those with immense experience and knowledge. There are obviously safety issues that come with installing outside tree lights and wiring in the elements. Installers need to understand how to place lights, without causing debilitating glare, and must know about how plants and trees are affected by such lighting. Our installers are among the most knowledgeable in their field.
Whole House Surge Protection and Generator Systems
Everyone in Texas knows about the variability of our power grid, whether it’s affected by weather or simply the age of certain parts of our infrastructure. How many times have you lost power in the last couple of decades? Did it cost you thousands of dollars in spoiled food, or necessitate filing an insurance claim? Did you broil in a heatwave, or shiver because you had no power?
It has gotten to the point that there are now more homes with emergency power arrangements than there are without them. It is in your own best interest to contact our Master Electrician at Illuminations Lighting Design today to learn more about surge protection, emergency power generators, or to schedule a complimentary in-home consultation.
