Reid Testimonial


In the summer of 2010 I decided to renovate my jewellery store here in Kentville. As most of our lighting fixtures were from the 1960’s and 70’s, a major part of the upgrade was to install new lighting to enhance the interior as well as the products we display. Another consideration was the efficiency and energy savings that could be had with updated lighting fixtures and lamps.

My interior designer recommended Chris and Atlantic Lighting and I was not disappointed. She evaluated our needs and the desired effect we wanted and the result was wonderful. Our interior has the ambiance we desired and the proper lamps bring out the true colours of the gemstones and precious metals of the jewellery we display which is an important factor when showing and selling product. Our customers comment on this positively and some even remark how our store stands out at night from the street with our interior and window showcase lights on.

Our interior temperature is much easier to manage as we no longer have vast numbers of high wattage halogen lamps producing enormous amounts of heat in the summer, and our energy consumption has decreased noticeably by 5 to 10 average kwh per day since the makeover. We rarely have to replace a lamp anymore whereas before it was a weekly occurrence and that is a cost savings as well.

In conclusion I would highly recommend Atlantic Lighting for anyone with business or residential lighting needs as they have the skills, knowledge and products to assess and implement a lighting plan to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
