  • Mr. Electric of Central Iowa specializes in commercial and residential electrical services. Commercial lighting differs from residential lighting because electricians specially design it to illuminate your premises and accommodate various business activities, including sales, manufacturing, and other commercial options. We offer custom lighting solutions for Iowa companies, such as multiple designs, colors, and intensities. Ballast bulb replacement is a service we offer only to businesses. Companies use commercial ballasts with fluorescent lights to limit the current to their bulbs to avoid issues like overheating and burning out. We match ballasts specifically to the light bulbs they operate. While we also offer residential fluorescent bulbs, the commercial versions create more heat and produce stronger magnetic interference. Fluorescent bulb and ballast replacement require professional installation by a licensed electrician to protect against electronic interference and fire hazards.
  • The light bulb types most suitable for your business depend on what industry your company is in and what you want to achieve. Mr. Electric of Central Iowa’s team of electricians would be happy to help you make the best choice for your business’s lighting. Check out your options:

    • Incandescent – These light bulbs feature older technology, making them less efficient than other bulb options. Incandescent bulbs are best applied to task lighting requiring high brightness levels. Incandescent light bulb types include general service/standard, xenon, and reflectorized. The Department of Energy requires incandescent light bulbs to produce the same amount of light using less wattage than they did before 2012.
    • Halogen – This option is twice as efficient as incandescent bulbs. You get a very bright, white light with halogen light bulbs. People often use these light bulbs for outdoor applications, including security upgrades and stadium lighting.
    • Fluorescent – Fluorescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) are the most commonly used commercial lighting options and use significantly less electricity than incandescent bulbs. Your fluorescent light bulbs will last 10 times longer and produce the same amount of light as incandescent bulbs. You can save energy using CFLs in standard light sockets compared to incandescent lamps. Be careful to dispose of fluorescents properly since they contain mercury.
    • HID/Metal Halide – Consider high-intensity discharge bulbs if you need an extremely efficient option to produce large quantities of very bright light. HID light bulbs do not produce pleasant light colors, but businesses commonly use them for warehouses and industrial applications.
    • LED – These light bulbs typically last longer and are more energy-efficient than any other light bulbs on the market. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) will last 35 to 50 times longer and use 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs.
