Optimum Height--Receptacles w Night/Stair Lights? Xpost Electric

mark_gSeptember 12, 2010

New build--and we are considering making use of the LED/single receptacle combinations around the house: on stairways, below main switches at entries to rooms, in bathrooms. The unit we're looking at has a small hood over the light to direct the beam downward.

I have also read abt some of you who have raised the height of your receptacles, to make them easier to get to.

Between these two issues, what height (to centerline of the box) would you mount these single boxes above finished floor (AFF)?

Thanks for the feedback!
