Pendant Lights. Saturday , February 10th , 2018 - 13:45:13 PM
Light will either be directed up or down, depending on the shape or type of shade used. Pendants that are inverted will stream light to the ceiling. This provides ambient or mood lighting in a space. Pendants with open bottoms focus light downward, allowing them to be task lighting above a workspace like a kitchen island. LED bulbs are becoming the more popular choice for pendant lighting. They are perfect for task lighting and they are energy efficient, but they can be more expensive than traditional bulbs. However, LED bulbs also last longer than standard bulbs.
Ideally, you want to use a circuit tester to make sure the power is off to the light before touching the wiring. Assuming the power is off, start by removing the old fixture. If youre replacing a ceiling fan with a pendant, remove the blades first. It makes the process much easier. Remove the plastic wire nuts from the wires, disconnect the wires, then remove the mounting bracket. Replace the bracket with the new bracket that came with the light. Once the bracket is installed, its time to connect the wires. Follow the diagram that came with the light.
If your lights dont have a lens, you may find that glare is a problem, particularly with mini pendant lights that use higher intensity bulbs. Speaking of bulbs, mini pendants are available with incandescent, halogen and energy saving compact fluorescent lights. Using a dimmer can help you get the most out of whichever bulb you choose. Installing dimmers is easy and you can do it yourself without having to call in an electrician if youre simply replacing an existing light. You want to start by shutting off the power to the room on the circuit box.
