FAQ: Light Fixture Repair and Light Fixture Installation in Chicago

Can a Handyman Provide Electrical Services?

Absolutely—as long as they also happen to be licensed electricians like the professionals on our team at Mr. Handyman of Lincoln Park. Our electricians have plenty of light installation experience, as well as years or even decades of experience with light fixture repair and other electrical tasks such as ceiling fan installation, light switch replacement, exhaust fan installation and much more. 

So what's the advantage of calling Mr. Handyman instead of an electrician company? Along with electrical services such as safe, reliable light fixture installation, Chicago homeowners can depend on us for a wide range of other qualified handyman services. In fact, we can save you money, time and stress by taking care of more than one smaller task in a single service appointment. There's no need to call multiple contractors to handle this and that when you can get all the help you need from an experienced professional by calling the team at Mr. Handyman.

Does the Circuit Breaker Have to Be Switched Off for Light Fixture Repair?

It's critically important that the circuit breaker be turned off before attempting light fixture repair. Chicago homeowners sometimes assume that as long as the light switch is off, it's safe to proceed. This is not at all true. Even if a light is off, it still has a live electrical current going to it and that can cause serious injury or even a fire if it's tampered with. Don't even remove a light switch plate or expose the wiring of a light fixture without first turning off the circuit breaker and then double-checking to ensure you've got the correct breaker flipped into the off position.

Can a Light Fixture Be Installed on a Sloped Ceiling?

Yes it can, although when you're dealing with a sloped ceiling, it's necessary to choose the correct type of light fixture installation. Chicago homeowners can either opt for recessed lights that are specifically designed for sloped surfaces so they shine downward instead of at an angle, or a pendant light combined with a sloped ceiling adapter that extends the light fixture far enough that it doesn't bump against the lower part of the slope. If you're not sure what to get, we're happy to consult with you and offer you the benefit of our professional experience.

Can a Dimmer Switch Be Used With My New Light Fixture Installation in Chicago?

That is entirely possible, but keep in mind that if dimmable bulbs and a dimming switch aren't included with your new light fixture installation in Chicago, it is necessary to ensure that you're purchasing bulbs and a switch that are compatible with each other. If you don't know how to go about that, we can provide assistance to make sure you get the right options and everything works perfectly after installation.

How Long Does Lighting Installation Take?

That really depends on factors such as the type of installation, how many components are involved, and the ease of access—if you need a lighting installation on a two-story-high ceiling with multiple switches, for example, it's understandably going to take longer than a more simple installation project would. Regardless, you can count on our team to work efficiently and effectively without cutting corners to get the job done safely and correctly.
