Residential and Commercial Lighting Services

Serving Washington, DC, Virginia & Maryland

Appropriate lighting does far more than illuminate dark rooms. It creates a warm, inviting space for family and friends in the home. And in the workplace, it can reduce eye fatigue and headaches and help prevent accidents through increased visibility.

Family-owned and -operated, Jaffe Electric has over 30 years of experience providing home and business owners in the greater Washington, DC, region with a full range of lighting services. From small household projects to complex commercial applications, our highly trained technicians get the job done right for a fair price.

Frequently Asked Questions About Lighting Services

What are the main types of lighting?

Task, accent, and ambient or general lighting work together in your home or business to minimize shadows, highlight visually interesting areas, and provide overall illumination. Depending on a room’s function, all three types can be used to create spaces for relaxation, working, and sharing time with friends and family.

How many recessed lights should I use per room?

This is a common question that has no simple answer. Many variables come into play when installing recessed lighting, including a ceiling’s height, the room’s overall lighting needs, and the type of recessed downlight you want to use. Many home and business owners often opt to “overlight” certain rooms or areas and then control recessed lights with dimmers.

What are the benefits of dimmers?

Dimmers can be a highly functional lighting choice, allowing you to vary the amount of light used in given areas. They also help you save on electricity costs and increase bulb life.
