" was wonderful and they did great work. They responded quickly and they cleaned up after themselves, and just did a marvelous job. We would" recommend them highly. We were very impressed with the amount of things they were able to accomplish within the two hour time frame they were there.

"He found and fixed electrical problems in kitchen. I had 2 outlets that were not working and switches that were loose in walls and a switch that had gone bad." He was so professional and responded to my need very quickly and the cost of repairs were very reasonable. He even took pictures of the problem he found in my basement to show me because I could not go down the stairs. He explained in detail what the problems were and explained what he did to correct the bad wiring. I am so pleased with his work and his fixing of my problems. I can now use my outlets in my kitchen and my switches are now working. I have other work that I will call him about after the first of the year that is not pressing but I definitely want him to do what needs to be done concerning my outside lighting. I would recommend to anyone who needs electrical work done. Thank you for such a great job and prompt service.

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.

replaced two floodlights on the front of my house with weatherproof lamps. He replaced two floodlights on the rear of my house with weatherproof lamps. He replaced two floodlights on a fence in the backyard with weatherproof lamps and correctly changed ...More the settings on the motion detector so it would work properly. I also want to commend for going to the supplier and purchasing these lamps himself without my having to do this, and not knowing exactly what I would need to get. I never doubt his judgment and am never disappointed in his work! A consummate professional! H.

was very responsive, arriving soon after we contacted them to examine the job and start to generate a quote. was very helpful when speaking to us about our options. One notable example was the suggestion to install remote control kits on the new ceiling fans to prevent having to cut open the walls to ...More install new switches, which saved time and money. After we settled on (we met with three different electrical services), they started work immediately and were done very quickly. They then reviewed what had been done. All the work seems to have been done in a thorough and professional manner, and we even got a couple of little "extras", such as replacement of an old 220V outlet in the kitchen (apparently for a window unit) with a GFCI outlet, giving us an outlet on one end of the countertop where none existed before. They did similar work in the garage, giving us an outlet that we didn't have and wasn't part of the quote.

From estimate to finished product everything went great. we've used e-Wire Electric several times since March of 2011 and every time has delivered. We always seem to give him what we think are impossible electrical jobs and he always finds solutions for what we need. Prompt, courteous, and very easy to work with.

, the electrician, phoned to schedule the service. he was on time and consulted us whenever there was an option (type of switch, location of outlets). He stayed and installed a fixture in a bathroom (not scheduled). On his return visit, he carefully hung a chandelier. Very personable, knowledgeable and reliable. Took his time to complete the job!

He returned call promptly from my initial message. Made an appointment which he kept exactly on time. I had malfunctioning fluorescent lights which he inspected. e replaced an outmoded electrical fixture; replaced ballast in another fixture, checked two other fixtures in question and found them to be sound. Very prompt, explained reasons for ...More the work he did, made an extra trip out to get a replacement ballast for one that was not standard and recommended that we replace the fixture as a more economical method of solving the problem. He was very cordial, professional and efficient. His charge of $150 dollars included the cost of new fixture and new ballast for another fixture. We considered it a very reasonable charge.
He is an excellent person with whom to work.

The work was fine. They did a great job. They were on time and on schedule. They were very neat. They did an excellent job. I was very pleased with the results of all their work. Because it was electrical work they had to shut power down but they kept it to a minimum.
