Once upon a time a home’s lighting needs would have been a single incandescent light bulb in the centre of every room. Now, there is LED studio lighting, dimmers, movement sensitive garden lights, and all sorts of other customised options.
The job of the electrician isn’t just to install globes, it’s to make sure the myriad kilometres of wiring that is safely hidden behind the walls, floors and ceiling is safe and professionally installed. People tend to take their lights for granted and they are typically the most ubiquitous part of a home electrical system.
There are many details involved in correct lighting installation that can be just as involved. After all, installing the lights often require working at heights and configuring all the switches and wiring. In addition, the lights are not just for illumination anymore. They now also have architectural and security purposes.
