Have you considered installing a vaulted lighting fixture in your Alexandria home’s entryway? Maybe you would like to add a chandelier to catch your guests’ attention as they enter your home. Adding sophistication and dynamic lighting, these pieces are often a homeowner’s favorite accent, but unfortunately, they can come with a few drawbacks. Cleaning and bulb changes can be a huge headache, either requiring dangerous ladder climbing or expensive maintenance costs through professionals.
With a light lift from John Goudie Electric, you’ll never have to worry about dangerous maintenance for your vaulted fixture again! Our professionals are ready and waiting to solve all of your electrical needs, bringing top of the line experience and quality products to your Virginia home!
Light lifts, or motorized hoists, are essentially a winch system designed to allow your chandelier or light fixture to ascend and descend at the touch of a button. The system has been used since the early theater days, used to display dramatic lighting, and in recent years has seen a huge spike in in-home use. Light lifts are a great solution for either currently installed chandeliers, or are a great way (and excuse!) to get an entirely new fixture in Alexandria.
You may worry that a winch system solely used to zip your lighting up and down might be unsightly, but don’t worry! Light lifts are practically invisible once installed, the machinery often hidden in your ceiling or attic, and the control buttons can be installed in an out of the way closet or hall. This leaves you with a flawless system designed to dramatically simplify chandelier maintenance without a mess of wires and unsightly metal in the way.
Are Light Lifts Dangerous?
We’re often asked if these systems are dangerous, but don’t worry. They’re not! These systems are designed to cut power to your chandelier as soon as the winch is put into motion, ensuring no chance whatsoever of danger from electrical issues or wiring. Also, the materials used in making a light lift are top notch, ensuring a hardy machine that is built to last.

I was thrilled with their efficiency and customer service. He arrived the same day, identified the problem quickly and after the part I needed came in he was back right away to install. They even sent me a thank you for my business card! This is a company with superior electrical skills and top-notch customer service.M T
Gorgeous as they may be, the trouble with chandeliers and light fixtures are that they collect dust extremely quickly. That may not be an issue for your lamps and furniture, but those aren’t fifteen or more feet off the floor! Beyond cleaning, there’s bulb replacement or removal to consider, another task that can leave you scratching your head or putting yourself in harm’s way to fix. Ordinarily, cleaning or bulb replacement requires either a thick wallet, or a very tall ladder. Neither of which a homeowner wants to deal with on a regular basis. This is where light lifts come in.
With a one-time, simple installation you’ll never have to be concerned with handling these issues the hard way again. This way, you can save loads of money and hours’ worth of headache inducing frustration.
Who Benefits From Installing Light Lifts?
Anyone with a fixture situated eight feet or higher off the ground can benefit from a light lift system, and that goes double for homeowners who have second floor fixtures. These can get up to twenty feet or more off the ground, and are quite dangerous to maintain without a light lift.
