Ceiling Light / April 27, 2018 / Stacie Soto
Extra height protects bathroom ceiling lights from electrical hazards: When you or your family is in the bathroom, you would spend a part of the time taking a shower. The shower water will definitely be focused in the right direction, but as you physically move, droplets of the water would fly around. If you use a pendant light, then that brings the electrical circuit much closer to the level of your head. This would lead to a much higher chance of the droplets of water finding their way inside the pendant lights. Water is a conductor of electricity. Hence the event of water droplets entering pendant would create a risk of short circuits. With the ceiling lights being at a much greater height, chances of such mishaps are practically eliminated.
Testing. Once you've finished connecting your new ceiling lights, simply turn the electricity back on and flip the switch. If your room lights up then you've done it correctly. If not, then you will have to switch the electricity back off and check your connections. It is a good idea to check and see if other electrical items in the room are working as you may have blown a fuse - this simple test could save you hours of trying to find a problem with the wires.
