Differentiating Commercial & Residential Light Fixtures

At Mr. Electric of Chesterfield, we are experienced in both commercial and residential services. Commercial lighting serves a distinct purpose, designed to illuminate business premises for various activities such as sales and manufacturing. We provide customized lighting solutions for businesses in Virginia, offering a wide range of colors, designs, and intensities. Ballast bulb replacement is a service exclusively available to businesses. Commercial ballasts are utilized with fluorescent lights to regulate the current and prevent overheating and burnout. Each ballast is specifically matched to the light bulbs it operates. While we also offer residential fluorescent bulbs, commercial versions generate stronger magnetic interference and produce more heat. Professional installation is necessary for fluorescent bulb and ballast replacement to ensure safety against fire hazards and electronic interference.

Choosing the Right Light Bulbs

The optimal light bulbs for your home or business depend on your specific objectives. The Mr. Electric of Chesterfield team is here to assist you in making the right choice in ballast bulb replacement, fluorescent light bulbs ballast replacement, and more. Consider the following options:

  • Incandescent: These bulbs employ older technology and are less energy-efficient compared to other options. They work best for task lighting that requires high brightness. Types of incandescent bulbs include general service/standard, xenon, and reflectorized. The Department of Energy requires incandescent bulbs to produce the same amount of light using less wattage since 2012.
  • Halogen: Twice as efficient as incandescent bulbs, halogen bulbs emit a bright white light. They are commonly used for outdoor applications such as stadium lighting and security upgrades.
  • Fluorescent: The most popular commercial lighting choice, fluorescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) consume significantly less electricity than incandescent bulbs. Fluorescent bulbs last ten times longer while producing the same amount of light. CFLs can be used in standard light sockets to save energy. Proper disposal is crucial as fluorescents contain mercury.
  • HID/Metal Halide: High-intensity discharge bulbs offer exceptional efficiency and generate large amounts of bright light. While not known for pleasant light colors, they are commonly used in industrial applications and warehouses.
  • LED: LED bulbs outlast and outperform other types, boasting higher energy efficiency. They use 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs and last 35 to 50 times longer.
