One of the most easiest and inexpensive updates you can make to your home is to change out all the ceiling light fixtures. Here’s how you do it. First, turn off the power on the circuit breaker panel. Next, remove the light cover and bulb from the fixture. Now, with a screwdriver, unscrew the fixture base and lower. Even though the power is off, I’m going to use synthetic rubber electrical gloves for added safety. For safety use a circuit tester to be certain that the wires are dead. Read the instructions on your circuit tester before use. The tester should indicate 0. Remove the wire nuts from the hot or black, the white or neutral wire and the green or ground wire.
Tip to hold the fixture in place while connecting is to use a couple of S rings and chicken wire. Form loops on either side of the wire and insert the S rings or in place of the wire, you can use multiple S rings. Connect the S rings to the L bracket and the new light fixture. Now, we’re ready to connect the wires. With wire nets, connect the black or hot wire, the white or neutral wire, and the green or ground wire. Now gently place the wires back in the lighting couplet. Raise and position the new light fixture and with a screwdriver, tighten the fixture in place. Instead of using ordinary bulbs, screw on compact fluorescent light bulbs. – bulbs over their lifetime will save you about $30 because it uses 75% less energy. Screw on the light fixture faceplate, done.
