Call us today to schedule an appointment.
With the rising interest in LED lighting, many companies are creating great options. The picture shows a 2 foot LED wall mounted light that was installed in a pantry. This light replaced a fluorescent light that was in place and giving the homeowner issues. With the upgrade of this fixture, the light will never need to be changed, and no heat is generated from the bulbs or ballasts.
The bright white light is also much nicer than the older yellow-tinted light that once was there. These would work great in a closet or storage room as well. They are also available in a 4-foot model as well. If you need any lighting needs we would love to be there for you. Call us today and schedule an appointment.
Mounting a television over a fireplace is a very common choice. The actual mounting can be pretty straight forward, but the outlet that is added can be a bit involved. The project can require a bit of planning to ensure it is done not only cleanly but correctly. Every home is slightly different, but we love the challenge. Call us today to schedule an appointment. We would love the chance to help you in any way possible.
It’s that time of year again. Time to become Clark Griswold and decorate the front of your home. But don’t let the challenges that Mr. Griswold had slow you down.

Then for the rest of the year, you will have electricity for your shop vac, leaf blower, landscape lights, etc. We would love to help you with any of your electrical needs.

We would greatly appreciate the opportunity to help design the layout and complete the install for you. Call us today to schedule an appointment.

Did you know you can save money by upgrading your home’s lighting to LED? LED lighting lasts for up to 28 years, far longer than the normal bulbs throughout your home. The cost of LED bulbs was originally high, but over the past few years, the price has dropped significantly. You can now get LED lights to replace your fluorescent tube lighting too. Most come with the capability of being controlled by a dimmer switch as well. Well worth the investment and they will update the look of your home. Call HomeTown Electric today to schedule a conversion to LED in your home today!
