Lighting is a key component of your home. It illuminates your family's living space and shows you the way when it is dark. Because it is so important, it deserves professional attention.
At West Houston Electric, we’ve been installing and repairing lighting in Katy and the surrounding areas since 1991. Our knowledgeable electricians are experts at all aspects of interior and exterior lighting. Whether we are installing, repairing, or removing light fixtures, we will make sure you are 100% satisfied with the job. If you are concerned about wiring upgrades to accommodate new lighting fixtures, we can also assist with wiring or rewiring specific rooms, outlets, or your whole home.
4 Signs You Need to Replace Your Light Fixtures
- Your electrical bills through the roof - Old and inefficient lighting networks will require more electricity to function than newer up-to-date lighting installations. If you're finding that your electrical consumption hasn't changed, but your electrical bill keeps going up, then you might want to consult our Houston lighting installation experts.
- You're not taking advantage of LED lights - On the topic of energy efficiency, LED lights are the cream of the crop as far as brightest and longest-lasting lights for the least amount of energy.
- Buzzing - No part of your electrical system should ever make noise. If you're hearing any buzzing sounds coming from your lights, get in touch with an electrician right away. You may have an issue with an overloaded service panel, or you may need to have your light fixtures or wiring replaced.
- Flickering lights - Flickering lights could be a symptom of lighting that needs to be replaced, or it could be an electrical panel that needs an upgrade. When your electrical network is spread too thin, your lights are usually the first to go.

Home automation, or “smart home" technology, has become very popular. This is when devices in your home are programmed to run automatically on a certain schedule. Our West Houston electricians can take this a step further and help you control your lighting remotely. There are programs that allow you to add all your lighting, appliances, and electronics to a mainframe. From there, you can let things run according to schedule, or you can change the status of your home via an app on your smartphone. Our pros can assist you with the electrical wiring necessary to put your home on the grid.
Dimmers & Lighting Controls
Installing dimmers and lighting controls is a great way to add ambiance and automation while conserving energy in your home. We can advise you on the use of timers, photo-sensors, motion-sensors, and wireless devices for control of your electrical fixtures and devices.
