Professional Light Installation for Every Home

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors specialises in lighting installation services and repairs. If the time has come to upgrade to LED downlights or you need a combination ceiling fan with light installed in a bedroom, we are the right choice. Our team of professional and fully licensed electricians has the experience and skills to solve any lighting installation dilemma you might have. Our lighting installation services cover all sorts of  lighting such as:

  • LED lights
  • Downlights
  • Pendant lights
  • Sensor lights
  • Floodlights

A lighting job for Metropolitan is far more than just changing a bulb. With over 25 years’ experience within the industry, our electricians are lighting experts. We know lighting design and the best way to illuminate your house with the correct number and positioning of downlights. We ensure that task lighting in spaces such as the kitchen is optimal. Decorative lighting is not a problem for our electricians either.

For a lighting installation service or repairs, call Metropolitan Electrical Contractors. We won’t leave you in the dark.

LED Lighting Installation

The energy efficiency of LED lighting is the most compelling reason to have these contemporary lighting fixtures installed in your home. They use only a small fraction of the power that old-school lighting does. There is no difference in the quality of the light these days and every type of light fixture you can imagine has an LED version. You can switch over energy-hungry halogen downlights to LED and even put fancy new oversized LED bulbs with visible filaments in your pendant lights.

The days of energy-efficient lighting being a poor imitation of conventional lighting are long gone. You don’t have to put up with the slow startup and cold light that were the biggest problems with energy-saving compact fluorescent lighting (CFL). Those curly CFLs were not that compact either and often wouldn’t even fit in light fittings with enclosed covers. But LED lights have none of those problems.

They come on instantly and are available in a full range of colour temperatures from warm white to cool white. Many LED downlights can be switched between three different tones of white light. Another advantage LED lights have is a much longer life than old-fashioned light bulbs and globes – at least 10 times longer, in fact. There really is every reason to upgrade to LED lighting.

Outdoor Lighting

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors’ lighting installation services extend to outdoor lighting as well. Whether it’s floodlighting a swimming pool or putting in a sensor light for the driveway, we have you covered. We can also install all sorts of wall lights and security lighting.

Like most lighting, outdoor lights need to be wired by an electrician. They also have to have the right sort of housing to be able to take the weather in the position where they are installed. Our electricians have the experience to ensure that your outdoor lighting performs as it should and doesn’t deteriorate.

Light Switch Wiring

When you’re renovating, the little details such as light switches can make a big difference. With everything freshly painted, the style and state of your light switches might not be up to scratch. Getting them replaced with new lights in a more contemporary style is the perfect finishing touch.

There are also dimming switches if you want to adjust the lighting mood. If you’re switching to an LED light, your old dimmer switch might not be up to the task. An electrician from Metropolitan can easily sort out any light switch issues.

Improve your Home with LED Lights

At Metropolitan Electrical Contractors, we highly recommend upgrading your lighting with LED. Sometimes that just means buying an LED bulb and using that in the existing fixture. But lights such as downlights and panel lights are integrated into the fixture and need to be put in like a whole new light. It’s true that many LED downlights come with a lead and plug, but you still need an electrician to put the sockets for the plugs in the ceiling space.

A lot of attention is paid to the effect lighting has on décor, but if you really want to improve the way your home works on a day-to-day basis, then properly placed task lighting in places such as over kitchen benches is the answer. Consider using strip lights installed under cupboards for a shadow-free work space.

Weekend Lighting Installation

Our electricians are always on hand. We operate 24/7, every day of the year and can even be at your door within the hour*. Lighting installation is not something you would normally have done after hours, but taking into account the fact that we don’t have any penalty rates and charge the same for standard installation at any hour on any day, it means that getting your lights done on a weekend when you are home makes perfect sense.

Interest Free** Light Installation

To make things flexible and affordable, we provide a range of interest free** payment plans for eligible customers.

Just choose a payment plan with one of our providers – Zip or Humm. You have the flexibility of weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments. Some plans even accept a $0 deposit, so you pay nothing upfront.

Your electrician can take you through the easy application process on site and approval usually takes only a few minutes. We also accept payment by cash, cheque and credit card (Visa, Mastercard or American Express).

FAQs – All You Need to Know About Lighting

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors answers your illuminating questions about indoor lighting.

The four broad types of lighting are ambient, task, accent and decorative.

  • Ambient lighting is the overall lighting of a room from the main fixture.
  • Task lighting refers to things like kitchen bench lights or reading lamps.
  • Accent lighting highlights specific objects or areas to draw attention to them.
  • Decorative lighting is what you might imagine it to be – purely decorative, such as coloured strip lights.

The most common types of lighting include:

  • Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
  • Incandescent
  • Halogens
  • Fluorescent
  • Compact fluorescent (CFL)

Actually incandescent is not so common anymore. It hasn’t been available to buy for a decade now, so the bulbs in your house are probably something else or tough survivors. LEDs are taking over because they are so much better than the older energy saving technology, the CFLs.

LED lighting is generally the best type of lighting. They are energy efficient and the most environmentally friendly option.

LED lights also have a far greater life expectancy than their halogen and incandescent counterparts. They are available in a variety of colour temperatures and can be dimmed or paired in smart homes.
