3 Electric Improvements to Make During Your Home Renovation, Old Lyme, Connecticut

There are many details to consider during a home renovation project. Electrical upgrades can influence the functionality and aesthetic appearance of your home, as well as protect your safety. Here are the best types of electrical services to consider for your upcoming remodeling project.

3 Top Types of Electrical Upgrades

1. Smart Systems

Smart systems are becoming more popular among homeowners. Hiring an electrical service company to install programmable thermostats will improve the energy efficiency of your home, while home security systems complete with sensors and surveillance cameras protect your family and property. These systems can also be programmed with smartphone applications for remote, user-friendly access.

2. Extra Electrical Outlets

Remodeling presents an opportunity to add extra electrical outlets, especially for major appliances such as fridges, dishwashers, and washing machines. Plan the placement of the outlets after designing the room layouts to ensure the best use of your space.

3. Lighting

Lighting plays a major role in the functionality and ambiance of a space. For instance, overhead fixtures such as recessed lighting or track lights are beneficial in the kitchen and offices. You can also add task lighting beneath the kitchen cabinets for illumination when preparing food. Lighting fixtures such as chandeliers, sconces, or pendants are stylish additions to kitchens and bathrooms and create a warm atmosphere.
