Popular Home Electrical Projects For Spring

When someone says “spring cleaning,” our minds usually go right to dusting, vacuuming, and packing away the cold weather clothes. While all of those things are important, you should also remember that your electrical system needs some spring maintenance as well. For a complete inspection of your home’s electrical system in Wisconsin and Iowa, you can rely on Westphal & Co.

 

Out with the Old and in with the New

If you haven’t already done so, now is the perfect time to replace all of your lightbulbs with LEDs. LED lighting offers superior efficiency with full-spectrum color options. This affords more versatile lighting at a fraction of the energy usage of traditional bulbs.

Smart Tip: Take your home lighting to the next level with smart lights that you can control with your smartphone or tablet.

 

Updating Fixtures

Spring and summer are remodeling season. The mild weather creates the perfect conditions for completing indoor AND outdoor projects. While remodeling your home, consider upgrading your electrical fixtures as well. Upgraded fixtures can make your home more efficient and improve its aesthetics as well. If your remodeling project involves taking out walls, have the master electricians at Westphal & Co. check that and make sure everything is up to code.

Smart Tip: Consider adding smart outlets throughout your home including USB fixtures for efficient device charging and even outlets you can turn on and off remotely with your phone.

 

Light Up Your Landscape

Now that temperatures are warming up, you will probably want to be spending more and more time outside with family and friends. Let your time together run late into the evening by having landscape lighting installed. You can improve curb appeal and safety outside your home with the right landscape lighting!

Smart Tip: Add lighting controls that you can monitor via phone app.

 

Generator Maintenance

Spring showers can often turn into spring storms, and spring storms can knock out the power to your home. Your backup generator can keep the lights on for as long as you need it, but only if it is properly maintained. With a Westphal & Co. generator technician, we’ll make sure everything is running smoothly!
