    Install LED Ceiling Lighting in Master Bedroom

    Interesting product. I’ve been futzing around with ceiling fans while waiting on my led lights to be delivered. Decided to refurbish the existing (original to the house fan) after being unsatisfied with anything I see online currently . As far as the wiring goes, I’m going to leave the fan...

    Install LED Ceiling Lighting in Master Bedroom

    Update... removed the ceiling fan and it looks like there is no j box at all. Just a piece of 2x6/8 nailed between the joists with A hole drilled through the middle for the wire to run through. Yikes. What do I do now?

    Ok, I'll have to get the fan completely off of the box tomorrow to take a look at the box, but in the meantime, I'm reading everything I can on box fill calculations. Let's just run through the scenarios - 1. Box fill is not exceeded and I can add the additional wiring connection for my...

    Install LED Ceiling Lighting in Master Bedroom

    Could I get some recommendations on what type/gauge of wire to buy to wire up the recessed lights? I'm thinking 14 gauge romex, something like this: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Southwire-Romex-SIMpull-250-ft-14-2-Non-Metallic-Wire-By-the-Roll/1193437 Is there a better choice out there?

    Install LED Ceiling Lighting in Master Bedroom

    Embarrassingly simple solution. Maybe I've been making this more complicated than I should have been. If I can isolate the wires I can just splice off a new circuit to wire the LED lights. That would solve my problem beautifully.

    Install LED Ceiling Lighting in Master Bedroom

    I have a home that was built in the late eighties - I've lived in it since 2014. Almost all of the lighting fixtures are dated and don't do a good job of lighting our living spaces. We have been upgrading one room at a time, and in the MBR there is one super old ceiling fan that lights the...
