Signs You Need A New Lighting Installation

  • No LED lights - If you don't have LED lights then you should make the switch. Not only do they last a lot longer than do traditional bulbs, but they are much more energy efficient which will save you money in the long run.
  • Flickering lights - There are two reasons your lights could be flickering. It could be that your electrical grid is spread too thin and you could use electrical panel replacement, or it could be that your lights are on the edge of their life and you can use a new lighting installation.
  • Your interior design has changed - If you're redoing your interior design, you should make sure that your lighting fixtures are upgraded as well. What was considered fashionable 20 years ago, might not go with the new designer's taste and it's a good idea to at least consider upgrading your fixtures as well.
  • You want to change the aesthetic of the fixture - If the color or feel of your indoor lighting isn't to your liking then consult our Latham lighting installation experts. Our electricians in Latham can help give you a better idea of what your options are before moving forward.

Benefits of a Generator Installation

  • Increase the value of your home - If you're about to put your home on the market, nothing showcases your home as more modern than a new backup generator installation. Show potential homeowners that they're covered in the event of an emergency and sweep them off their feet.
  • Power - One of many benefits of generator installation in Latham is having power when you usually wouldn't. This means you can still have the lights on in a storm or you can open your fridge to eat comfortably too knowing your food won't go bad.
  • More security - Blackouts make for good timing for bad actors to carry out malicious deeds. Make sure your back is covered at all times of day or night by consulting our Latham generator installation team to ensure your families safety through any storm.
  • Peace of mind - No more worrying about what to do should your power go out. With a generator in Latham you can rest assured knowing that you're safe and secure in the event of a major storm that could knock out your power.
