Recessed Lighting Installation: Why You Shouldn’t DIY

So you’re thinking of replacing your old lighting systems to a new recessed lighting solution. It may seem like it will be a simple replacement of light fixtures, but there are so many more risks associated with using recessed lighting without proper installation. We’ve mapped out three major reasons why you shouldn’t be doing this type of install without a certified electrician at the helm.

Reason #1: We Have the Skills To Prevent Home Damage

Ever hung up a picture and realized you need the nail just a little bit more to the right? Imagine doing that with any light fixture- now you’re left with plenty of drywall damage. The extra costs you wanted to save by doing it yourself have now added up into a whole mess of trouble. Our certified electricians know where to drill, even in the most complex installations.

Reason #2: We Can Minimize Safety Risks

Frankly, even with extensive research you may not know all the associated risks when it comes to installing a new light fixture. We can be the ones to inspect and test your new light fixtures before installations and make sure they’re up to code. What if you install IC recessed lights when you needed non-IC rated recessed lights? Do you know how air tight recessed lights can effect your electrical system? These are questions that you can have a knowledgeable electrician answer without ever having to research.

Reason #3: We Assess What You Already Have

You may still be worried about the costs associated with an electrician installing your recessed lighting fixture, think about what we will do:

  • plan your lighting installation
  • provide job equipment and most materials
  • prep and clean the area.

And we want to assess your current wiring system to make sure that we’re ready to work with wiring already exists in your home, so you aren’t misled into spending extra money on wiring.
