Recessed Lighting

Recessed lighting is one of the easiest, most common, ways to bring light into a dark room. Often referred to as ‘can lighting’, recessed lighting housings are mounted in the ceiling so that the trim pieces mount flush with the drywall, leaving an elegant, yet highly-functional, lighting system that will make your dark room feel new again. Our recessed lighting packages are affordable and include a dimmer switch that will allow you to control the brightness of the lights with the ease of a slider.

Looking to add a little more functionality to those recessed lights? Ask us about how a home automation setup will allow you to control your light switches from your phone, or a voice assistant device like Amazon Echo, Google Home, or Apple’s Siri.

We have recessed lighting solutions for every application, whether it’s lighting up a dark room that was using inadequate lighting, adding some accent lights to illuminate photos or artwork on the wall, or just adding more light to an existing setup. Contact us today for more information about how we can help you!

New/Upgraded Electrical Panels

Looking to replace the electrical service panel in your house? Or maybe just upgrade the existing one to a larger service? At InTown Electric, we specialize in electrical panel installation and can help you keep your home flowing with electricity.

In addition to basic panel installations and upgrades, we also offer upgrades to the way your panel protects the electronic devices in your home. A whole house surge protect, which installs directly into the electric panel, will ensure that all of the devices in your home are always protected from electrical surges. No more worrying about which electronics are plugged into a surge protector.

Outlets and Switches

Outlets and switches are one of the simplest things you can do to upgrade the look and feel of the electrical setup in your home. From toggle switches, 3-way switches, to dimmers, replacing those old outlets and switches will instantly bring your home into today and give you more functionality over how you control the things plugged into them.

In addition to simple switch updates and outlet upgrades, we are always in-tune with the latest technology when it comes to smart devices. We offer electrical outlets that include USB plugs so that you never have to search for a charging block for your phone or tablet again. In addition to that, we offer smart light switches that allow you to control the lights in your home from your phone, and even from your voice assisted devices like Amazon Echo, Google Home, or Apple’s Siri.

We pride ourselves on being up on the latest technology, so don’t be afraid to ask about something you may have read about or heard about, because chances are we already know what you’re talking about and can discuss further options with you.

Bathroom Fans / Ceiling Fans

Have a mold problem in your bathroom? We install bath fans by Panasonic that, while whisper quiet, will remove the moisture that is causing issues. In most cases, these fans will install with no drywall damage or painting required.

Looking to add some circulation to a bedroom or a family room? Ceiling fans are a great way to move stale air through a room to ensure that the room stays comfortable and feels fresh. We offer ceiling fan installation along with speed adjustable switches, which allow you to control how fast or slow your fan rotates; making sure that your family is always comfortable in your home.

Home Entertainment/Smart Home

Technology and entertainment come at us faster today than they ever have before, and we understand the need to have everything on-demand and working for you in a way that is both intuitive and practical, which is why we also offer a variety of home entertainment and smart home solutions.

Looking to add speakers, or whole house audio to your home? We offer a variety of Sonos products that can help expand your existing stereo solution, or build an incredible experience from scratch.

Need a TV hung on the wall but don’t want all those unsightly wires hanging everywhere? We offer flat screen TV wall mount installation, as well as the ability to add new electrical outlets and other media ports to the wall behind the TV, so that no matter where your other devices may be, there will be no visible wires creating a distraction.

Want to integrate smart light switches, outlets, or cameras into your home? We offer a large variety of Smart Home product installation that will have you feeling like you’re living in the future.
