60 deg vs 90 deg wiring
All the new ceiling light fixtures I've seen now contain a warning about risk of fire if installed in a pre 1985 house with 60 deg C wiring.
Why would these lighting manufacturers design and build something that would require you to go to extensive and expensive efforts to replace older wiring in order to use their fixture?
It doesn't make a lot of sense to pay an electrican a few hundred dollars to add a junction box in the attic and pigtail in new wiring to the old ceiling box just to install a new $20 light fixture.
I bet most folks just buy these things at the Depot or Lowe's, go home and slap them up.
Does anyone have some common sense opinions on this warning?
