Recessed lights in a ceiling with radiant electric heat
June 10, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I just moved into a house that has electric radiant ceiling heat (the house was built in 1962).

I'd like to add recessed lighting in the kitchen, but I'm concerned about damaging the system when cutting into the ceiling.

Is there a way to know where the elements lay in the ceiling? Other concerns?

thanks in advance.

Have you had any luck adding the lights? How's it going?

I work at a large company that has a number of master electricians on staff. I sent an email to one of them asking if they know someone who would like to take on this job. It's a small area so hopefully it won't be too much of a problem. thank you for your interest...
