Lighting needs and systems have changed massively over the past few decades, gone are the days when 1 incandescent bulb in each room was all there was, nowadays lighting is also a major part of home decor, style and atmosphere as well as its functional use.
Adding or changing additional lighting can be simple or complicated, depending on your needs. There can be more than one solution to any given requirement so talking to your local experienced electrician will get you the best advice on your lighting needs all across the Newcastle and Maitland areas.
As well as just replacement or extra lighting, there are many other very different kinds of lighting, all with different options and benefits but all must be correctly wired and installed.
As residential electricians, we can supply most types of lighting from nearly all major brands, but if you have your own products already, this is absolutely fine too. As long as they meet legal Australian standards we can install and test them for you.
With rapidly increasing energy bills, many people are looking for better lighting solutions that not only reduce their bills because they are more efficient, but also are from a more sustainable source. Here at Horsell Electrical, we can advise on your lighting needs by incorporating green lighting solutions into your home that will benefit you as well as the planet. LED lighting is a simple and effective way to do this for example but isn’t ideal in every situation which is why discussing this with us is very important.

For most small domestic lighting installs and upgrades the design aspect is built into the cost and is essentially free advice. For larger renovations, mansion-style homes or commercial projects the new would provide a complete lighting design service and quote for this accordingly
