FAQs About Lighting
It might not seem like there would be that many questions about lighting, but given the advancements in the industry and more attention being given to matching lighting with décor, we are finding that our customers have plenty of questions. At Mabe’s Electrical and Home Improvement, we serve the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area with exceptional lighting services, but also unrivalled customer service. With that said, we are happy to address any questions you have. Here are a few to get you started:
What types of lighting can you help me with?
Lighting typically serves one of three purposes, although it can fulfill more than one at a time: ambient lighting for overall illumination, task lighting for specific duties, and accent lighting for added visual interest to a room or area.
Can you put dimmers on lights, and how are they beneficial?
Most lighting can have a dimmer installed at the switch for the purpose of reducing your energy usage, enjoying the right amount of light for any given situation, and extending the life of the lightbulbs. To be able to dim an LED fixture, it must state it is dimmable.
Is it true about LEDs lasting a very long time?
There are many different brands of LEDs on the market with some rated as low as 20,000 hours and others as high as 90,000 hours. Most fall somewhere in between. As for how long that works out to be, consider how much you use the lighting. If it’s just a few hours a day, you can get 10 to 20 years of life from your LED lights.
