As discussed in Part 1, summer gives us the wonderful opportunity to enhance and upgrade our homes. Electrical work is usually needed to support new features and the additional electrical demand. Part 2 will cover the top summertime indoor electrical projects.
Ceiling Fan Upgrade
As summer goes on, temperatures will continue to rise. Our family relies on ceiling fans and air conditioning to stay cool and comfortable. Using ceiling fans allows you to set the thermostat at a higher temperature to save money on your electric bill. As the years pass, aging fans become less effective, and they may not be looking as good. A good option is to upgrade to more powerful fans in each room in the color and style of your choice. The new fans will provide the level of comfort that will help make even the hottest of summer days more bearable.
Is your home becoming drab and familiar when you come home? Sometimes areas seem to have excessive lighting while other places seem too dark. You would like a way to adjust the level of lighting easily to fit your mood. One sure way to have much more lighting control is installing dimmers throughout your home. Each lighting fixture with a dimmer will be much more versatile. Candlelit dinners will be more romantic. A soak in the tub will feel more soothing. All you need to do is install a dimmer for the dining room and master bathroom.
New Electrical Outlets
In older homes, there’s always a shortage of electrical outlets. Some may also not work properly anymore. Many homeowners turn to using multiple power strips and extension cords to provide adequate electricity in those areas. Unfortunately, this can lead to overloaded circuits, which can be a serious safety hazard. Have a licensed electrician perform a safety inspection focusing on your electrical needs. Repairing defective outlets, installing additional ones where needed, and ensuring areas with water have outlets that are GFCI-protected can significantly increase the safety in your home.
