There are several different services lighting professionals offer, including installing new lights, removing or repairing your existing light fixtures and helping customers plan their lighting type and arrangement.

The cost of the service you require can vary a lot, depending on a few different factors.

Those include:

1. Installation vs. replacement

If customers require new lighting to be installed where there is no existing power source, the cost of the service will be higher in comparison to lighting replacement. If the service you require includes removing and replacing existing lighting fixtures, the electrician won't be required to run new electrical lines, saving you a lot of money on labour and materials.

2. Type of light

The price of the service depends on the type of light you're installing as well. This is because the installation process can differ a lot from one type of lighting to another. Some installations require more time and effort to be completed and therefore affect the end price of the service.

3. Per-light fee

Some companies charge a per-light fee which varies a lot from region to region. Others charge a per-room fee as well. This fee is applicable for rooms that don't have an existing power source.

4. Ceiling height

Another factor that contributes to the total price of light installation or repair services is the height of the ceiling where you want the lighting fixture to be installed.

Other factors that can affect the price include:

  • Weight of the light fixture

  • Complexity of the job

  • Amount of materials required

  • Amount of time it takes, etc.

While these are some of the main factors that determine the price of lighting installation, some electricians prefer to work on an hourly basis, and their rate mainly depends on their experience level and expertise.
