How To Choose The Right Company To Fit Your Lighting Control, Heating Control or Audio Visual Tech 


Choosing the right company and team to fit your lighting control, heating control, and audio-visual systems in your home is crucial to ensuring a successful renovation project. Here are some tips for choosing the right company and team: 


Do your research and look for companies that have a good reputation in the industry. Check their website, reviews, and testimonials from previous clients. 


Look for a company that has experience in designing AND installing the specific systems you require, such as our team at Astra Lumos. A company with experience in these areas will have the knowledge and skills to provide the best solutions for your needs. 


Choose a company that is professional and easy to communicate with. They should be responsive to your queries, provide detailed proposals, and be transparent about their pricing and services. 


Check the company’s portfolio of previous projects to see if their style and approach align with your vision. This will help you determine if they are a good fit for your project. 


Check if the company has the necessary certifications and licenses required to install the systems you require. This ensures that the work is done to a high standard and meets safety requirements. 

Warranty and Support:

 Choose a company that offers a warranty on their work and provides ongoing support. This ensures that you have peace of mind knowing that your systems are working as they should and that any issues will be promptly resolved. 


Look for a company with a knowledgeable and experienced team. They should be able to provide you with expert advice and guide you through the installation process. 

The team here at Astra Lumos pride ourselves on top marks for each of the above points and really enjoy the work that we do. Our team encompasses all the necessary skills for lighting design and smart home technology that you could need. 

Having a team like ours, with such a diverse set of skills ensures that the designs we create for our clients are both aesthetically pleasing and practical. 

It’s true that sometimes designers in construction can come up with plans that are not feasible or practical to implement in reality. Having a team that includes both designers and technicians, like our team at Astra Lumos, can help ensure that the designs are both creative and realistic. 

By having all the necessary skills in one team, Astra Lumos can provide more comprehensive solutions for you, no matter how small or large your project. Our team can work together to create designs that are both visually appealing and practical to implement. This always leads to a better end result for our clients and a more satisfying experience for everyone involved in the project. 

It’s important to choose a lighting design company that has an in-house team of designers who are also electricians. Here are three reasons why this is beneficial: 


 A lighting design that looks great on paper may not be practical or feasible to implement in reality. Having designers who are also electricians means that we have a better understanding of the practical aspects of lighting design. Our team can create designs that not only look great but are also practical and easy to implement. 


 When our designers work with our team of electricians, they collaborate to come up with designs that are both practical and aesthetically beautiful. Our electricians can then provide input on the technical aspects of lighting design, while our designers can provide input on the creative aspects. This collaboration always leads to designs that are more innovative and functional. 


When the design team and the implementation team are separate, it so often leads to miscommunication and delays in the implementation process. Like when we get called in to work on projects where the designer has put a plug somewhere that is so highly impractical that it has to be scrapped and then time is wasted creating new plans. However, when the designers are also electricians, like our team at Astra Lumos, they can work closely with the implementation team to ensure that the design is implemented efficiently and effectively. This can save time and money in the long run, as well as keeping projects on time. 

By choosing a lighting design company with an in-house team of designers who are also electricians, you can ensure that the designs are both practical and aesthetically beautiful. This will always lead to a better end result for your project and a more satisfying experience for everyone involved.
