Under Cabinet Lighting Services in Upper Darby

Practical Lighting Systems for Your Home

Under cabinet lighting has become increasingly popular in recent years and Martella Electric has upgraded kitchens, studies, and even garages across Upper Darby with these low voltage lighting systems.

Exceptionally versatile, under cabinet lights perform a number of valuable functions including the improvement of tasks as well as ambient and accent lighting. When paired with dimmers, cabinet lighting can deliver a wide range of looks that can make any area more attractive. As a result, under cabinet lights are in high demand and our team has a great deal of experience with the installation of these systems using LED and halogen light sources.

Benefits of Under Cabinet Lighting

Everyone seems to have their own reasons for liking under cabinet lights, but we commonly hear homeowners cite a handful of benefits they enjoy once they’ve had these fixtures installed.

Some of the many benefits to under cabinet lighting that our customers enjoy include:

  • Better Visibility: Better task and ambient lighting allows occupants to perform tasks more easily and safely than in a dimly lit environment.
  • Appearance: A brighter, cleaner appearance is delivered through the removal of shadows with the use of under cabinet light fixtures.
  • Style: Cabinet lighting systems allow homeowners to emphasize features and characteristics of their home. Granite countertops in kitchens or art objects in a study can be uniquely displayed through the application of under cabinet light.
  • Reduced Cost: Many under cabinet light systems employ low voltage lighting equipment that consumes much less electricity and can light a broad area at a reduced cost.

Customer Favored Applications for Cabinet Lighting

With the many benefits of under cabinet lighting, the applications are seemingly endless.

Some of the most commonly seen applications at Martella Electric include:

  • Kitchen Lighting: Easily the most popular use for low voltage lighting fixtures, kitchens are often the center of activity in any home and perform several critical functions. From a functional standpoint, meal preparation requires strong, direct lighting and under cabinet lights makes cooking tasks easier. In addition these fixtures not only deliver light to specific areas, but throughout the room as well. Under cabinet lighting is also attractive in that it delivers light without visible fixtures.
  • Accent Lighting: Although functionality is undoubtedly the primary reason for the installation of cabinet lights, use as accent lighting is certainly popular as well. Under cabinet lighting options can be applied to areas throughout the home to offer a rich appearance and highlight various pieces of furniture or places of interest.
  • Entertainment Centers: Whether you are highlighting the most recent stereo equipment or adding emphasis to items of interest, low voltage lighting fixtures are frequently used with entertainment centers to create a focal point within a room. Equally useful with curio cabinets and even bars, under cabinet lighting can deliver just the right amount of light easily and effectively.

Our Popular Low Voltage Lighting Systems

Low voltage lighting systems are always a favorable option as they provide the amount of light you need without racking up expenses on your energy bill. While each type of lighting equipment has its own set of benefits and drawbacks, the most basic is the type of power used.

Line voltage systems use 120 volts of power, which is available in every home, can accommodate a greater number of fixtures, and does not require any additional equipment. Low voltage lighting systems require a transformer to reduce the voltage from the available 120 volts to 12 volts and can be initially a little more expensive.

Exciting Benefits of Low Voltage Systems

Despite the fact that low voltage lighting systems require some additional equipment and may be a bit more expensive, the benefits that accompany this equipment are what make them popular with homeowners.

Some of the benefits that low voltage systems provide include:

  • Low Voltage Systems Are More Energy Efficient: Low voltage lighting is exceptionally efficient and a low voltage bulb can produce the same amount of light as a traditional incandescent bulb while only using 20% of the energy.
  • More Money Is Saved with these Systems: With lower power consumption, low voltage systems save money in the long run.
  • Heat Is Minimized: Unlike some other bulbs, low voltage lights generate a minimal amount of heat.
  • Low Voltage Lighting Systems Have a Longer Life Span: Low voltage bulbs, especially LEDs, can last up to 50 times longer than Halogen or incandescent bulbs.
  • These Systems Are Much More Versatile: Compared to others, bulbs for low voltage lighting systems are fairly small and much more versatile for use in under cabinet lighting.
