Removing Light Fixtures When Painting a Room


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

What to do about Light Fixtures and Electrical Wiring While Painting a Room.

Keeping Electrical Wires Safe While Painting

Electrical Question: I have removed a ceiling fan from the ceiling to prepare the room for painting. I have turned off the circuit break that applies power to the room and removed the ceiling fan, and the lights, but I need power for some tools so need the electrical outlets hot. Since the ceiling fan is out and the wires are hanging would it be advisable to turn the circuit breaker back on to get power to the outlets while leaving the ceiling fan wiring hanging?

This electrical question came from: Tom, from Moore, Oklahoma.

Dave The Electrician’s Reply:
