Are you looking to install pot lights in your home? Thomson Industries is pleased to provide quality pot light installation and residential electrical services to all Greater Vancouver Area residents.
Pot lights are known for their ability to bring bright, concentrated illumination to dark spaces. With a simple pot light installation, you can enhance the ambiance and functionality of any dimly lit space.
Whether you’re looking to install your new pot lights in your kitchen, bathroom, walk-in closet, or outdoors, the Thomson Industries team is here.
How much does it cost to install pot lights?
It’s difficult to answer this question as pot light installation varies depending on how many pot lights you wish to have installed and the hourly cost of the electrician you hire. Generally speaking, you can expect your Greater Vancouver Area pot light installation to cost anywhere between $125 and $300 per fixture. As pricing is dependent on a number of factors, we recommend calling a trusted HVAC company, like Thomson Industries, to obtain an estimate. Beyond the number of pot lights you want installed and the hourly rate of the technician you hire, other factors that can impact the cost of your pot light installation include if you have high ceilings or no existing fixtures in your ceilings.
What is the difference between pot lights and recessed lights?
There is no difference between pot lights and recessed lights. They are simply two names for the same type of light. Pot lights may also be referred to as can lights, canister lights, or high hat lights. Pot lights are installed directly into the ceiling line by creating a “pot” or hole, usually circular in shape, in the ceiling. The cylindrical fixture is then installed in that hole. With pot lights, the housing and bulb are concealed and only the trim is visible, making them an attractive and modern lighting solution for many Greater Vancouver Area homes.
Can you add pot lights to an existing ceiling?
Though pot lights are typically easiest to install when your home is first being built or renovated (as they can be installed before the ceiling material goes up), they can be retrofitted into existing ceilings with a little extra work. Before you decide to add pot lights to an existing ceiling, hire a reputable HVAC company like Thomson Industries who can assess your property and offer their advice on how best to go about retrofitting pot lights into your ceiling.
Do pot lights increase your home’s value?
Greater Vancouver Area homeowners may be wondering what renovations they can do to increase the value of their homes. Installing new light fixtures, such as pot lights, in your home is one way to do just that. Replacing old, outdated fixtures with pot lights will instantly make your home feel more modern. These light fixtures are visually attractive and will complement any interior design theme. Pot lights are also extremely functional. From soft illumination in a room to concentrated task lighting in the kitchen, recessed lighting satisfies a variety of needs. Plus, on the spectrum of home renovations that can boost the property value of your home, installing pot lights is one of the most convenient and cost-effective options. For an inexpensive renovation that will simultaneously enhance the ambiance of your home and increase your home’s value, look no further than pot lights.
How many pot lights should a room have?
The number of pot lights a room should have depends on the size of the room. A good rule of thumb is to measure the height of the ceiling and then divide that by two. The result is the amount of space to leave between each light. For example, pot lights for a room with a 10-foot-high ceiling should be spaced 5 feet apart. Once you know the optimal distance between lights, you can determine how many pot lights the room will need.
