can lights in kitchen area - California
Just realized today - there is NEW separate forum discussing lighting issues on gardenweb! I posted this message on Electrical Wiring board and got one reply from ronnatalie who referred me to california residential compliance manual. I have to admit - manual a bit complicated for me and has a lot of terminology.
I would greatly appreciate any additional input on the subject below!
We are doing some work in the dining room and would like to install can lights. We live in California and the house is built in 1948... So, currently the dining room walls and ceiling are stripped to studs and joists/rafters for some structural work and before we close them up - lighting will need to be put in.
Can you guys recommend a couple of options what to install (manufacturer/type of can light)?
Electrician came out to look at this and said that he would go with old fashioned cans and use LED/retrofits (whatever that means) but from reading on this site I am getting that this is not exactly legal in Cali. We will probably get another electrician to come out look at the job but our own Education I'd like to gather as much info as possible. Thank you!
