Install new power outlets and light switch covers

Old, damaged, and worn out outlets and light switches impact the functionality of your home. They can also effect your home’s value and are a safety or fire risk. Ensure your home is fit-for-purpose with new outlets and new light switches that can keep up with today’s modern supply demands.

Switch to LED lighting

Choosing the type of lighting in your home is important to achieve an energy-efficient, effective, and long-lasting lighting solution. LED lighting achieves all this.

LED lights can save up to 80% of your lighting cost compared to halogens, incandescent bulbs, and Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs). This will be attractive to prospective property buyers due to the reduced energy usage means lower power bills. LED lighting also has an impressive lifespan, lasting around five times longer than halogen bulbs.


Add some dimmer switches

Dimmer switches add ambiance and more variety to your home lighting. Best of all, they are easy to install by an electrician. With full control over your lighting, you get to set the mood in different areas of your home.

Replace electric panels & breakers

Replace your old breakers with new ones and reduce the risk of electrical damage in your home. Outdated electrical panels can have safety issues. Calling a certified electrician to inspect your breakers and recommend what type of panel best suits your house is an excellent option.

New panels can also help your home get a more consistent power supply for all your appliances.


Add ceiling fans

Add comfort and style when it comes to your home’s heating and cooling: consider adding ceiling fans to help cut down energy costs for those warmer days where you don’t quite need to power up your air conditioning.

Ceiling fans offer better airflow and distribute air more evenly around the room, keeping you and your family comfortable year round.

Upgrade or replace your thermostat

Thermostats help control all climate temperature systems in your home, especially if no one is using them. An old thermostat may be reading temperatures inaccurately, leading to a heating and cooling system that is overworked.

Install solar panels

If you want a cost-effective way to save on your electric bills, look into how solar power can do this. Solar power helps you save money by decreasing your dependence on electric power grids, thus lowering your electric bill.
