Lighting Installation & Light Switch Wiring

Light switches are one the items homeowners take for granted because it’s so easy to turn lights on and off. But proper lighting installation requires wiring that’s both safe and effective. Our contractors take amperage, energy usage, efficiency, and safety into consideration prior to installing anything. Simple things like not grounding a wire, or not hooking up a switch correctly can lead to big problems like short-circuits or fires.

Ceiling Fan Installation Services

If you need ceiling fans installed, wiring and other considerations are once again at play. Call our electrical contractors to ensure each wire is installed correctly prior to mounting the fan on the ceiling. We want to make sure the fan spins quietly and provides light on demand when the light switch is turned on.

Knob and Tube Wiring Updates

Knob and tube wiring (K&T) is an outdated electric system that can be found in tons of homes across the Albany area. It’s an old method of electrical wire installation from the early 1900’s that’s not ideal for the modern era. The name knob and tube wiring comes from the ceramic knobs and black tubes that cover the copper wire which carries electricity throughout the house. Although many homeowners have updated their electrical systems to safer units, K&T wires are sometimes still found in attics and wall cavities that are hard to reach. If you see this, contact our team to retrofit the panels and wiring in your home and ensure your safety.

By illuminating specific areas, you can create a welcoming atmosphere and draw attention to specific features. If you’re looking to host an outdoor party or a barbecue, installing lights for your patio is a must. Below are some of the types of lights to consider: 

  • Outdoor pendant lighting – Outdoor pendants hang from the ceiling to focus light on a seated area. These exterior lights are perfect for illuminating a dining or seating area.
  • Outdoor table lamps – If you’d prefer a small, but modern outside lighting option, consider a portable, Bluetooth LED lantern. New age, cordless lamps comes in clean colors like super-white and shine bright, lighting up the immediate vicinity. Also think installing individual outdoor table lamps every few feet to create an intimate feel and establish the ambiance.
  • Outdoor wall lights – For a more classic look, get some outdoor wall lights that match with the chairs and table on the patio. In addition to providing ambient light, the matching colors create a more expensive, luxury feel.
  • String lighting – Illuminate your picnic or barbecue area on your backyard patio with white or colored string lighting. String light installation is a popular way to immediately boost the appeal of an outdoor space. Whether you use string lights to surround the area or run lines across the ceiling or an overhang, the light from above is reminiscent of stars.
  • Outdoor floor lamps – One lighting option that’s quick to install is outside floor lamps. These large lights can be chosen specifically to blend in with the look of the space while still illuminating the area.
  • Outdoor ceiling fans – If you live in area that’s hot in the summer, you may want to install an outdoor ceiling fan. In addition to circulating the air and aiding in the prevention of flying insects, outdoor ceiling fans have numerous lighting options.

Transformer Repair – Transformers are an important part of urban and suburban electrical systems because they convert electrical power into usable voltage. The electricity from the local power grid must goes through the transformer before being sent to homes and businesses in the area. When an electrical transformer fails or explodes, it can be extremely dangerous for anyone nearby. Transformer explosions occur due to a number of factors, such as lightning, overheating, corrosion, power line damage, or damaged safety mechanisms. Depending on the amount of damage, transformer repair may take hours to days before it’s fixed or replaced. Our team works directly with local energy providers to fix transformers when they go down.
