Recessed Lighting Installation

Your Trusted Recessed Lighting Professionals

Any room can be completely transformed, simply by replacing hanging lights with recessed lighting. The popularity of recessed lighting has greatly increased in the past decade and for good reason. The sense of space and atmosphere that it gives to a room is incredible. Therefore, it's ideal for smaller rooms or any space that needs to feel larger. Popkin Electric provides stunning recessed lighting installations that consistently amaze homeowners.

So what are the benefits of recessed lighting?

The less space occupied by recessed lighting in a room, the larger the room appears visually. No obstruction of the ceiling's visual space is caused by the light cans being built into the ceiling.

Further, recessed lighting produces a phenomenon called "wall washing", which gives the illusion of a larger room. It does not require you to wash the walls with soap and water. 

This kind of lighting effect casts more light into a room by using the correct kind of trim (the part of the light visible through the hole in the ceiling). Directional reflectors and "light scoops" direct light to the wall. For sloped ceilings, an "eyeball trim" can also be used.

Our Installation Process

1) Before disconnecting and removing the existing light fixture, our experienced electricians cut power to the room at the main breaker or fuse box.

2) To connect the fuse box to your new lights, holes are cut in the ceiling and new cables are run.

3) The recessed lighting system can begin to be installed.

4) Our experts will conceal clips and fittings, and fit the trim pieces flush to the ceiling.

5) As soon as the bulbs are installed, the recessed lights are tested, and debris/packing materials are promptly disposed of.

When upgrading your light fixtures, it's important to hire an experienced residential electrician, for more than just safety reasons!


I hired Popkin Electric because I had to redo the work of a cheaper company that I found in the pennysaver. When Popkin came over they redid all of the work . It was a night and day difference from the other company. The work looks neat and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Andrew takes pride in what he does. His professionalism and expertise are appreciated. His staff is terrific and they represent his company well. With something as important as electric, call a pro like Popkin and Sons; the work will be done right, safely, and every dollar spent is well worth it. We've been using Popkin Electric for well over 10 years at our home, for a variety of work....I highly recommend the company!

Andrew Popkin really knows his work. One wall of our kitchen lost all power. I tried resetting breakers in the main panel, but nothing worked. I talked to Andrew on the phone and I sent him a photo of my two breaker panels -- none of the switches were labeled. He took one look and told me exactly which one to reset. "I"ll bet you ten dollars that just fixed your problem," he said. Sure enough, the lights, toaster, and microwave were working again. No charge! Many thanks, Andrew Popkin! I"ll call you again for bigger jobs when we're ready to do them.

Thank You Popkin for outstanding service. Ellis and his worker were friendly, efficient and provided outstanding service. They advised us to upgrade panels, something we knew that had be done, and did it within days at a reasonable price. Ellis was patient with all our request for additional outlets. Thank you again.
