Hot Ceiling Fixtures

by

You should occasionally check the area around your ceiling light fixtures for warmth because not all fixtures are well insulated. In addition, if you exceed the maximum recommended wattage for the bulb, the fixture can overheat. Too much heat buildup could pose a fire hazard.

Switching to compact fluorescent light (CFL) or light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs provides one solution because these bulbs don’t produce as much heat as incandescent bulbs.
