Considerations When Installing Outdoor Light Fixtures
Background: Vicki, a Homeowner from Orlando, FL
Question: I want to hang a chandelier on my lanai.
- Does it have to be rated for outdoor use or will any chandelier work?
Thanks for your electrical question Vicki.
Installing Outdoor Light Fixtures
- Vicki, if the lanai area is considered outdoor then the light fixture should be rated for outdoor use as well as all the electric wiring and components.
I have provided the following links that lead to fully detailed information on this website that will assist you with your electrical question:

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
