And Let There Be Light

When I first bought my home, the living room only had one light, and it was at one far end of the room. Whoever built the home didn’t think that people in the rest of the room would like to enjoy some light while they sit. I had lamps in the other side of the room to provide some illumination. I decided to install a light socket in the dark side of the room. I used a home improvement book to guide me, but I became confused midway during the procedure, and called an electrician in Passaic County NJ to finish where I left off.

I was doing pretty well with the installation until I reached the internal wiring of the home. Up until that point, I had simply measured and cut a hole in the ceiling for the wiring to come through. As I looked at the wiring, I wasn’t sure how to extend it to the hole that I cut earlier. The electrician did it by changing the existing light to function as a parallel circuit for the original and the new light. A parallel circuit allows for both the original light and the new one to operate when the switch is turned on, but when one of the lights stops working, the other one will still continue to function.

While the electrician was still in my home, I asked him if he could help me with another task. There were three lights hanging over the sink in my kitchen that stopped working many yeas ago. The light originally functioned by having three incandescent bulbs arranged in a parallel circuit. I wanted to have it changed over to a new circuit that would only use one fluorescent bulb. I purchased a new socket at the hardware store specifically for this purpose.
