Let there be light and call the electrician.  A good lighting repair company can perform commercial and residential repair services in a timely manner.  Flickering fluorescent lights, broken light switches, and old wiring are no problem for lighting repair professionals. When your office lights die, or when it’s time to replace your home’s landscape lighting, you can trust Mikulka Electric to tackle the job right the first time.

Residential Lighting Repairs

Unless you have previous electrical experience, you should always hire a licensed electrician for any electrical project, including installing a light fixture.  Regardless of whether your new light fixture is being installed in a spot that’s already wired or if new wiring and switches will be needed to complete the job, a licensed electrician will ensure the job is done correctly and safely.

Your home’s lighting design is what makes your spaces functional, comfortable, and inviting.  Your electrician will assess the location of your fixture and give you an accurate estimate of the cost involved.  A good lighting scheme includes adequate fixtures and lamps, which are made adaptable and flexible through dimmers, timers and variable settings.  When something goes wrong with your lights, it can disrupt your family’s comfort.

There are a wide variety of available light fixtures that can give you options for improving the lighting in any room.  The time needed to install a fixture varies, depending on its location and the difficulty of running and connecting wires and switches.  It can take 1 to 2 hours to install a standard light fixture, but installing wiring to a new site may take up to a full day.  High ceilings and difficult-to-access electrical panels can extend the time needed for the project.

Overhead lighting requires a ceiling fixture or grouping of fixtures that can broadcast light through an intended area.  Task, ambient and accent lighting are provided by small ceiling or wall fixtures that brighten a specific area.  Flush-mount, pendant, chandelier, and fan-light combinations are installed in ceilings with standard junction boxes and hardware. In contrast, sconces are fitted in a similar manner on walls.  Recessed and track lighting require specialized mounting equipment and procedures, depending on the type and configuration of fixtures.  Any permanent lighting requires wiring for electrical supply and switches.  Your electrician will need to run wires from your electrical panel to the installation and switch sites.



Installing most fixtures ranges from $75-$125.  The cost will be affected by the type of fixture selected and the condition of your wiring.  Not all damaged light switches can be repaired.  When you consider the age of the switch, plus potential cost and safety concerns, it often makes more sense to just replace damaged switches. The cost to replace a light switch depends on various factors, including:

  • Location of lighting placement
  • Condition of existing wiring and fixtures. If the wiring or fixture connected to the switch needs to be repaired or replaced, the project price will increase.
  • Light switch model. Every switch configuration and brand have its own price.  A four-switch plate will cost more than a two-switch plate.   Plates also come with USB and Electric hubs.  Dimmers cost more than regular switches, but the time it takes to install them is comparable.
  • Installation, retrofit and repair of LED and low-voltage lighting
  • New lighting installation for remodels, new construction or add-ons
  • Security lighting to deter intruders or enhance navigation at night



For both residential and commercial spaces, it makes a lot of sense to replace regular light switches with dimmer switches.  Dimmable light switches can set the mood for a dinner party at home and alleviate eye strain at the office.  However, not all light bulbs work with dimmer switches, so it’s important to ensure that the dimmer and the bulb can work together.  In addition, the risk of electric shock while swapping out a light switch is huge.  These are reasons why it’s important to trust light switch upgrades to a licensed electrician.

Lighting solutions in your business are equally important from a functional and safety standpoint, but the right lighting also creates ambiance and helps you better showcase your business and individual products.  Mikulka electric will help you design a lighting plan that enhances the ambiance of your business both inside and out.

Commercial lighting is an entirely different thing than residential lighting.  Warehouse lights need to be powerful and long-lasting to minimize bulb replacement frequency.  Retail spaces may need to redesign their lighting often to meet their showroom’s shifting inventory layout.  Frequently moving fixtures around can result in damage to the lights themselves.  People who work in office settings need lighting that is adequately bright, but not too bright.  Office lighting should feel as natural as possible and reduce eye strain for computer users.  Mikulka electric is a great lighting repair company that will be able to handle all of your commercial spaces’ lighting upgrades and repairs.
