Once the electrician has got all the tools and materials gathered, they will arrive to begin the installation process, and this is how the process will go:

  • Positioning the lights 

The electrician will plan the positioning of the lights before installation. They need to be appropriately spaced and positioned in the best place for optimum results. The technician will spend some time marking the position of any wires or pipes in the ceiling so that they are protected when cutting holes for the light.

  • LED downlight fitting 

Next, the electrician will drill the holes that the lights will go into. They have to focus on cutting holes that will fit the installation perfectly for perfect installation.

You may have to turn off the properties power for this part of the job. The lights will then be wired into the roof, and if you choose low-voltage lights, a transformer would have to be installed.

They know how to make sure that any ends are not left with too much wire exposed and that they do not touch anything when the light is put into the hole.

  • Inserting the downlight unit
