Have you ever wondered what are some benefits of investing in professional lighting and electrical design installation for a home or business? What can lighting and electrical design installation do for you?  

First and foremost, did you know that lighting color influences not only mood and energy but also how colors appear to you? So, for example, we would normally keep the majority of the lighting as a warm white, as this gives you a calming, relaxed effect while also improving the vibrancy of things like the color of your food, the color of paintings, and so on. So, you’ll find in quite a lot of art galleries and museums, they use 3000 Kelvin as a color temperature. This is the color that a lot of things respond to really well. And that’s why you see it used a lot commercially. 

Second, did you know that lighting control systems can help you save money on electricity? So, in a nutshell, a lighting control system that has been designed and installed around you means that you are not leaving lights on unnecessarily.  So, as everyone is getting ready to leave the house for a family day out, you notice that someone has left a light on the far end of the house, and there is an all-off button right by the front door, which means nobody has to take their shoes off and walk to the other side of the house. 

Another simple example is time and senses that control outdoor lighting. So, for example, in my house, I have a timer and a sensor so that my house number light is only on from 3 pm to 10 pm, as long as it’s dark. And then I’ll know that as the days make it longer as we approach summer, the locals will only be beyond when it’s dark. A quick aside: the light I’m using is a one-watt LED. So, if you consider that a kettle boiling uses 3000 Watts, you can see how little power modern lighting actually consumes. 

Third, did you know that smart heating controls can help you save money on your energy bills? In one of my other videos, I discuss Heat miser, a heating control system that we frequently specify in our projects. We do this because it enables remote access and control of your central heating system. So, while you’re away on vacation, or even when the majority of the family is away at school or work, your house isn’t just sitting at 18 degrees, wasting energy trying to keep the house warm when no one is home. 

If you’re returning from a vacation, you can log in for about 12 hours before turning all the rooms back up to warm and walking into a nice warm house. Those are just a few quick wins, and hopefully, they pique your interest.
