Ben’s Mom wants a ceiling fan. To inspire her, Mommy decided to finally install one of the new lights that she has been meaning to put in. Here is the old ugly light.
Here I am helping her pick out tools. We needed wire strippers and a screwdriver. The directions said to use a Phillips, but we really just needed a flathead. Also, Mommy is paranoid so she uses a little gizmo to test for electrical current.
The main thing to remember is to turn off the power. Then you just unscrew all of the old parts.
Mommy installed a new bracket, screwed the ground wire to the bracket, and twisted the wires back together using the old wire nuts. Then she put the new base on with nuts. I like peanut butter I wonder if she used peanuts?
She put in a light bulb and put on the glass cover and turned the power back on.
Mommy says it takes a little longer to install a ceiling fan, but it really isn’t any harder. the bracket is bigger, but since you don’t install the blades until last, it’s not too much different than a plain light. It’s easier than some heavy lights because ceiling fans come with a hook you can hang them on while you mess with the wires.
3 2 more lights to install – upstairs hallway, front entry, and bottom of basement stairs but she says it’s time for a break. I’m all tired out from snoopervising, so I’m going to take a nap.
