Accent Lighting

  Why use accent lighting? Accent lighting has a variety of uses, but the main purpose is to make areas of a room more visible. When done right, it can be aesthetically pleasing and set the "tone" for a room. Accent lighting can also make a small space appear larger or a large room feel cozier and more intimate. Additionally, well-placed lights can highlight art or a room’s architecture, which can make a room more visually interesting.


Examples of Accent Lighting:

  • Theater fiber optics
  • Directed track or recessed lights
  • Niche lighting
  • Wall Sconces
  • Lighting inside glass cabinets
  • Chandeliers with dimmer switches
  • Under cabinet lighting
  • Residential lights 
  • Cove lighting
  • Up lighting


     Lake Norman Electric is an expert at choosing the right accent lighting that will look great and highlight your rooms properly. Our experts are ready to design a custom plan to beautifully illuminate the interior of your home.


We will ensure your new lights are structurally hung and wired properly for years of trouble-free enjoyment.

Circuit Breaker Replacement

If you do not have AFCI circuit breakers or have circuit breakers that are damaged or constantly tripping in your home, let us provide circuit breaker replacement.


     With improvements in technology, our homes consume more electricity than ever before. With this higher demand for electricity, you may find that the circuit breakers in your home are inadequate. 


Inadequate circuit breakers will begin to trip or shut off power when the demand is too much for the circuit. Lake Norman Electric offers circuit breaker replacement to upgrade your electrical system. 


     Additionally, circuit breakers that trip frequently can wear out over time. Circuit breakers that are not properly maintained will not be able to protect your home from power surges, and they can develop a severe risk of arcing or faulting. Arcing or faulting can cause fatal electric shocks or electrical fires. 


     Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters or AFCI’s can eliminate the risk of arcing. AFCI is a type of circuit breaker that recognizes fire hazards and shuts down the power to your home immediately. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development has reported that a majority of residential fire damage comes from homes that don’t have AFCI circuit breakers installed. They work like conventional circuit breakers but also protect against erratic current caused by arcing. 


     If you do not have AFCI circuit breakers or have circuit breakers that are damaged or constantly tripping in your home, let the expert Electricians at Lake Norman Electric assess your electrical systems and replace your circuit breakers.
