" , the electrician that did the actual work was well spoken, knowledgable and courteous... All for a reasonable cost. Hard to find this combination in Miami. Will use again

"There was an issue with the installment and the time it took to complete the job but and Co. was responsive and did not charge me for the" extra time it took the installer over and above the original quote. There were a couple of small items that needed to be completed after the original installment but they took the initiative to follow up and get it done. Overall, very pleased with the results and how everything was handled by various employees and dealt 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.

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.

I've known and worked with RKA ( and ) since 2008. After interviewing many of the Main Line contractors at the time, RKA became my go-to renovators and carpentry source for our older Main Line home (which is now basically pristine). They performed a large scale renovation in 2008 and numerous smaller ...More upgrades and repairs since then. Although our house has few issues today, early this year RKA repaired an original cast iron waste line. As usual, RKA foremen were extremely careful how they accessed the repair. They tarped all floors, created plastic walls to prevent dust and had their plumber in and out so fast the job was done and the walls buttoned up inside of a few days ready for paint.

To take down the flourecent light and ceiling fan down. The order wasn't set up correctly in the office. As a result they were ill equipped to finish the job. He put up the new fan in the kitchen. I ended up going with another company to finish the job.

They were easy to work with on the phone scheduling a time to do the work. They were punctual, quick, knowledgable and friendly. When the work was done, they showed me the install, demonstrated that the fan and light were functional without any wobble and they asked if I was satisfied. They did an excellent job.

They installed the lights and left everything as it was with holes in the walls, did not repatch the holes and they left the box with all the cut outs.They then left. Other companies did more than this and we had to hire another company to repair the holes costing us an additional $350. We felt he should have included this with the deal. Sometimes only ...More one light will go on instead of all four. We would not use them again.

when I called AAE, I got an answering machine.
This really made me skeptical about the business, but the reviews I'd read were so positive, I kept trying..
I'm glad I did.
The company called the morning of my appointment (2 days later- reasonable) and moved my appointment up from later in the day.
The electrician was ...More professional, neat, and competent.
He fixed the problem, then taught me how to reprogram the controllers. Yeah!
While he was here I remembered some other work I needed done, and he was able to do it as well.
Also, when he was in our attic he noticed a problem with the air conditioning vents.and informed us.
All this in , at Ft. prices.
When I need an electrician I will call .

The team was very professional and did great work. They completed all the work in one appointment, and did it in the evening, which meant that I did not miss . I am very happy with the work, and would absolutely use them again.
