  1. We should maximize natural light. It’ll save us a lot of energy. That’s what I want to do now. Hence, I’m looking for a contractor that can help me out on this. The reviews on Angie’s List are a big help.

  2. Yes, you are totally right about having brighter lights in the kitchen. According to Angie’s List, the kitchen should be brightly lit with lumen bulbs that have high ratings.

  3. Lights can both be functional and decorative. Sometimes you need more than an electrician to make it both functional and decorative. You can get a lot of help from angie’s list. From gathering information to hiring the right service providers, angie’s list can help you.

  4. Lighting your home the right way entails a certified electrician to get the job done. That’s why I think it’s important that you hire a contractor who is certified, knowledgeable, and experienced for this task.

  5. We’ve recently installed some solar lights. At first I found it weird. I mean, why would we need some solar lights during the day? Bur that was my ignorant point of view. Apparently, the solar lights are charged during the day (that’s why they’re called solar lights 🙂 ). Anyway, we were able to hire an electrician from angie’s list that installed the lights and explained everything to us.

    1. Yes, LED lights are environmentally friendly. They’re energy efficient but cost kinda more than the the traditional light bulbs that we are all used to.
