The finished project is the best part of any renovation. Hopefully, it turns out just the way you envisioned it. However, when you are thinking about what it is going to look like in that finished room, the part many people overlook is that it takes planning to get those lights and outlets in just the right place so that they are usable, aesthetically pleasing and code compliant. Remember that you cannot see inside your walls so don’t follow the old adage – out of sight, out of mind – it is easier to do the electrical component of your renovation while the walls are open.
Now that we have advanced from the traditional incandescent bulbs where you had no choice of light colour to the world of LED lighting – you now have a choice of what colour of lighting to have in your home. The colour you choose is a personal choice. Each person will perceive colour in their own way. The choice has to also be based on what you want to illuminate and for what reason.
For example you would illuminate a tree in the front yard much differently than you would illuminate your counter top. Accenting objects vs. task lighting.
Colour in lighting is based on the Kelvin (K) scale which ranges from 1000K (red/yellow candlelight) to 10000K (Sky Blue). Most lighting for homes starts around 2700-3000K (warm white) and ranges up through 4100K (Cool white) and up to 5000K (Daylight).
Nu-Tek Electric is here for you – 24 hours a day – Most people never think of their local electrician until something goes wrong – So its nice to know that we answer our phones 24 hours a day just in case you need us.
One of our customers called on a long weekend because her CO detector was going off. After double checking a few of the common reasons that a detector may go off for no apparent reason, we advised her to call 911 and have the fire department come out and check her house. She did not want to bother the fire department but our on-call electrician remembered checking her detectors recently and knew they were in good working order and insisted that she call.
Oh the power just went out.. Well I guess I’ll go to bed then.
You may go to sleep when the power is out, but do you know if your Life Safety devices in your home such as smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors, are battery backed up to ensure you and your family are protected and will be alerted in the event you do have a life threating situation?
Believe it or not there are detectors on the market that do not have batteries in them.
Don’t you think it is odd our computers and printers are on a UPS battery backup but not devices that save our lives? Facts:
