"They arrived on time, were professional and friendly, asked for a prioritized list and went to work. Asked questions if they weren't sure about placement." Made it through the whole list with no problem; everything works well and looks great!

"It took two visits for and his son to complete the exterior timer switches due to our lack of the proper material. Overall, considering how" much time and effort this took and his son crawling around in the muddy grounds, they were awesome. They are willing to listen to the concerns and explain things well. They are great people to work with.

THE Cost of the recessed light is largly determinate on Where ,You purchase the product and the number you buy .Big Box dicount stores have products made oversea's that are less expensive than those found at Custom Bath & Kitchen Stores , but the products are often riddled with problems , missing parts , defects etc,

 

A typical light will run $ 35.00 to $ 85.00

 

However , the true cost of recessed lighting is involved in getting circuits or circuity to the switch and lighting system .In NEW construction , this matter is easily dealt with by installing circuits and   hardware during framing . Whereas , with remodeling , installing new lighting into existing spaces , requires wall & ceiling opening ,closure , repair , repainting & finishing

 

I have been involved in projects where the lighting cost but $500.00 ,,

while the installation & finishing costs exceeded $ 2500.00

?

Here is about the same question (for 1 fan) a while back, with answer:

http://answers.angieslist.com/how-cost-install-ceiling-fan-ceiling-light-exists-q46721.aspx

Your total cost could be from 1.5-3 times that shown in the answer, depending on how much of the wiring for the three fans he can combine - i.e. can he easily run one power circuit for all 3 fans, then just tap off that for switches and runs to the fans, are they fans only or with lights (double the wiring and switches), etc. Note the costs do NOT include drywall/panelling repair or painting to match. Also, you are going to be near the top end of the estimates, because in all probability your access is poor, and 3 fans are almost certain to require a totally new run from the breaker box.

Unless you have an open exposed-joist attic above where the fans are to go AND the top of the walls the switches will go in, you can expect substantial holes in walls and ceiling to pull the wires and fasten them - by code, you cannot just pull wires between joist and let them lie on the top of the ceiling drywall - you have to staple them to joists every few feet, so you end up with several 1-2 foot holes typically near top of the wall (to drill through top plate), near side of ceiling to grab and bend wire coming up wall, and maybe one mid-ceiling to reach in and fasten wire, then of course the two openings that are ultimately fully concealed by the switch plate and the fan mounting plate or dome.

Before you get into this project I would check with the condo management if you are allowed to do this - there are limits to how much you can modify your condo and how much you can modify or add in the way of electric circuits.

Ahhhh - the light bulb comes on - but I didn't see the rabbit - it must have made it down the hole. Was I right about you upgrading the bulbs from a lower wattage, and that is when they started going out ?

 

I seriously doubt it is the track, from what you say and especially since the one head works fine at various places along the track. My guess - because these are apparently 110V track but 12V transformer INSIDE the head that mounts to the track, I would say it is the transformer overheating - a VERY common thing with modern electronics and cheap transformers from China. Commonly they have a thermal protector that cuts out when overheated, but overheating 2 or 3 times is normally fatal for them. I bet the transformers have fried, and that even the ones still working are smoked and probably have deformed plastic around them.

 

The unit is rated to 75W max, and the bulbs you have are 75W and of a design that provides little airflow around them (zero if you are using the glass cover plates for the heads) and has a lot of heat in the upper portion of it - in my opinion just another dumb design. I will give 10:1 odds there are not air holes in the top of the heads either - UL should ban that practice. 

 

Personally, if it were all new I would return it all for my money back right off. Since the track and some heads are old and you are invested in them already, I would gather up receipts and eMail the manufacturer about the issue, and the number of heads that have gone out (old and new combined) and see what they say. I would suspect they will offer to at least send replacements if you send the receipts and bad heads. I would then return any unused bulbs for credit to wherever you got them, and get different bulbs. You will have to ask the manufacturer if the transformer circuitry can handle MR16 GU5.3 base LED bulbs - Amazon has them, if your heads can take them - will run a LOT cooler. Otherwise, 50 Watt Halogen bulbs should fit and might run cool enough to not overheat ?

 

With transformers in the heads, I would use LED bulbs if compatible with transformer and circuitry.

 

BTW - you did not say if you tried the "dead" bulbs in the "good" heads - my guess (do just a short test) is they will work, and the bulbs are not the problem at all - it is the transformers.

 

Your other option. and what I would do unless you are attached to this style fixture or it is mounted to ceiling permanently and you do not know how to change it (or don't want to), so would cost about $125 for an electrician to come out: is to get what you can in refund from the manufacturer (or distributor, if they have good defect return policy), scrap the whole system, and save a LOT of money in the long run on energy costs by going to a 120V CFL or LED bulb system. Use LED if this is a short-term use system, or CFL only if one that will be on for many hours at a time - they burn out quick in frequent short use applications, but go seems like forever in long term use. I have one 60W (equivalent) GE CFL that I use as a nightlight but stays on 24/365 and has been on continuously for over 4 years without burning out. A number of identical ones we tried in applications where they were only on for a few minutes at a time went back under warranty after in a few months. If you are looking for a true "spot" light, then I recommend LED anyway, unless you don't like their "artificial" light.

 

Here is the info sheet on your unit, with company contact info at bottom:

?

I'm an electrician and I sometimes encounter lighting coverage and quality problems.

You should go to a website on lighting or visit a lighting store. 

 

You'll need to familairize yourself with:

1. Lumens

2. Color Rendering Index: Cheap LED lights have a low CRI which makes blue appear brown etc..

3. Color Temperature: Some lights are bluish while others are more yellow. You want them all the same in a particular room

4. Radiance or instensity: How a light on a low ceiling lights a desk better than a light on a high ceiling.

The project was professionally supervised by Messe who was a real joy to work with from start to finish. Every phase of the project including demo, plumbing, electrical, tile, carpentry work and cleanup was closely supervised by . was able to meet our budgetary goal and tight ...More completion schedule requirements. The end product is a beautiful modern master bathroom that we are very proud of and which has become the envy our our neighbors. Job well done and thank you. Would we choose again for any future projects? Yes, without hesitation.

and were respectful, courteous, and very knowledgeable. The work went smoothly, and they kept me apprised of progress and what they were doing. I was quite pleased, and I'm pretty picky about work quality. I bought a coupon for $160 through AngiesList for $200 worth of electrical services, and ...More I ended up paying an additional $155. It was a bit more than I expected to pay, but I haven't had electrical work done in a while, so I had no basis upon which to determine how cost effective the package was.

I needed to replace a can light over the kitchen counter with a heavy hanging fixture. mounted a junction box using the existing wiring and patched the drywall around the old hole. The serviceman arrived on time, was polite and professional, and knew how to do the job. He didn't have a junction box on hand so I ran down ...More to the hardware store while he was working to pick one up, saving me a bit of money. Because it would take time for the drywall patch to dry before the light could be installed, and I didn't want to pay for this downtime, I let him leave when the box was installed and I installed the light myself later. I thought the price was a bit high for what I had done, but it would have taken me 4 times as long!

Great job from start to finish! When came out to our house to estimate the job, he was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. He gave a very fair estimate with breakdowns for additional jobs that we will have done in the future. The two techs he sent out were equally good- very considerate and knew what they were doing. I was especially ...More appreciative of how careful they were not to cut any more drywall than was absolutely necessary for the job. I'll definitely use them in the future.
