Frequently asked questions

Complex fixtures like chandeliers and dimmer switches may require special electrical knowledge. Though installing a new lighting fixture is something many homeowners feel they’re equipped to handle themselves, enlisting the help of a trusted electrical company in Austin will ensure not only your safety, but also the longevity of your new installation.

Replacing an old fixture with a new one without rewiring is possible in some cases, especially if the new fixture has the same voltage and wiring requirements as the old one. However, it’s essential to exercise caution and check for compatibility, as mismatched wiring could lead to electrical hazards. Our team can inspect your current electrical system and determine your options from there.

Yes, you can install a dimmer switch for your light fixtures, but it’s essential to check the compatibility of the dimmer with the type of light bulbs you have (e.g., LED, incandescent, or CFL). Additionally, for some fixtures, you may need to ensure that the dimmer is rated to handle the total wattage of all the bulbs connected to it. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with the installation process, it’s best to seek the help of a qualified electrician to ensure a safe and proper setup.

It depends on the circuit’s capacity and the wattage of the fixtures. It’s best to have one of our expert electricians assess your home’s existing circuits before attempting to install multiple fixtures on the same one.

The fixture installation process

The first step is to remove your old light fixture and ensure the area is thoroughly cleaned. To ensure a seamless installation of the new light fixture, we may use sandpaper to smooth out the wall or ceiling. The wires of your new fixture will be meticulously connected, as crossed or incorrectly connected wires may cause safety hazards such as short circuits or fires. 

Once the wiring is complete, we’ll set up the housing of your light fixture, enhancing its visual appeal and providing extra safety against exposed wires. Finally, we’ll test your new lighting and ensure your home is left spotless when we leave.
