Automatically Lower Your Chandelier or Lighting Fixture With a Light Lift from John Goudie Electric
A gorgeous chandelier or vaulted lighting fixture is like a crown on your beautiful 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.
But don’t fret, the specialists at John Goudie Electric have just the remedy you need with light lifts! Our professional electricians are ready and waiting to solve all of your electrical needs, bringing top of the line experience and quality products to your 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.
Your chandelier lift can be installed in the attic space above the chandelier. Using a specially designed, child proof (key operated switch) wall control panel that allows you to lower the chandelier to a position which allows you to clean and change light bulbs while you stand with both your feet firmly planted on the ground. The chandelier lifts come in a variety of sizes and can be configured to handle almost any size chandeliers, even those with multiple light circuits.
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 the Lifts Dangerous?
Absolutely 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.
Who Needs a Light Lift?
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.

There are many advantages to installing a chandelier lift in your Northern Virginia or Southern Maryland home, including:
- Improved safety – Anyone with a fixture situated eight feet or higher off the ground can benefit from a light lift system, and that goes doubly for homeowners who have second floor fixtures. These can get up to 20 feet or more off the ground, and are quite dangerous to maintain without a light lift.
- Easy to use – Even though a light lift might seem complicated, it’s not! You will be able to use this device to easily reach your chandelier or light fixture.
- Reduced costs – Instead of hiring a company to come and clean or replace the bulbs of your light fixtures on a regular basis, you will be able to make the necessary adjustments yourself!
