History of Recessed Lighting
Recessed lighting was first used in commercial and industrial units as early as the 1940s as a way to maximize lighting efficiency and make offices look more aesthetically pleasing. Shortly after, boutiques and retail shops were also using recessed lighting as a way to highlight their merchandise and add character to the space. Now, aside from these types of buildings, recessed lighting has grown in popularity amongst residential properties. This is because recessed lighting has the ability as a small investment to dramatically alter a space, making it look and feel more inviting and adding value to the home. Many home owners also prefer recessed lighting because of its simplicity and energy efficiency, as recessed lighting tends to use significantly less energy and last longer than the standard light bulb. Recessed lighting is also very advantageous in homes with lower ceilings and especially in basements, since recessed lighting is installed into the ceiling and therefore makes use of space which otherwise would have been obstructed by a bulky lighting fixture.
Why work with a professional
In Canada, it has been mandated by the Electrical Safety Authority that all recessed lighting installations be evaluated and completed by a certified electrician. Therefore, when evaluating electrical contractors to complete a recessed lighting project, it is crucial that one does their homework. Recessed lighting can be very beneficial for you and your home’s value, but can also be a large headache if the recessed lighting project is not completed by a professional.
