Safety First: Turn Off The Power
To avoid the risk of electrical shock, we always turn off the power at the electrical panel before starting any work. We know that one wrong move can cause serious problems with your electrical system, and we do everything possible to mitigate those possibilities.
Identifying Electrical Wires
Understanding wiring connections is crucial. Typically, you’ll encounter three electric wires: black (hot), white (neutral), and green or copper (ground). Our staff knows how to work with and around these wires to ensure the entire installation or repair process goes smoothly.
Working with Junction Boxes
We’ll connect the new fixture to the junction box or electric box in the ceiling. Ensure it’s sturdy enough to support the weight of your fixture.
Hiring a Licensed Electrician
While DIY is an option, hiring a licensed electrician is recommended for complex installations or repairs. Our handymen are trained to handle risky situations like high contact voltage and can use a voltage tester to ensure safety.
White Wire and Its Function
The white or neutral wire completes the electrical circuit by providing the path for the current to return to the source. We’ll ensure the wired connectors are safely and securely in place to ensure it’s ready for regular operation.
Compliance with State Regulations
In the state of Ohio, specific regulations govern electrical installations. We always ensure your installation or repair meets these requirements to avoid penalties.
Replacing a Light Fixture
To replace a light fixture, we disconnect the old fixture from the box in the ceiling, carefully noting the wiring connections. Then, we’ll connect the new fixture using the same connections and get your replacement installed in no time.
Installing a New Light Fixture
Whenever we install a light, we take the time to make sure the fixture is securely attached to the junction box. We’ll connect the wires as per the manufacturer’s instructions, then restore power and test the light.
