LED downlight can provide excellent illumination conditions to your house. And it is very popular among consumers both at home and abroad. It is also a good idea to wire led downlight to an existing circuit if you don't want to add any switch actually. Here we will give you a brief introduction on how to wire the downlight to the circuits. Hope that you can add more light to your furniture piece or wall art. In order to do this, you will need 12-2 romex, for 20 amp lighting circuits, 14-2 romex, for 15 amp lighting circuits, and yellow wire nuts and so forth. Follow me to get more detailed instructions.

First of all, what should you do is to check your house circuit breaker box. Then locate the breaker which controls the existing lighting circuit you are augmenting. Remember that we have prepared the 12-2 romex wire and #14-2 romex wire? They can be used in this step actually. You should use #12-2 romex wire for your jumper wires if the breaker is 20 amps, while you should use the #14-2 romex wire if the breaker is 15 amps.

Second, you should cut an opening in the ceiling for the new down-light fixture. Remove the fixture that is closest to the new downlight location. If it's recessed you can remove the bulb to reach the screws holding it in place around the inside of the can. What should you do is to remove the screws and push the recessed can into the ceiling or pull it through the hole and let it hang down into the room. Install new romex cable from the existing light fixture to the new led downlight location. Add a jumper wire between each one if you add more than one led downlight. Attach all the black wires together in each location. Attach all white wires together in each location. Install the new down-light fixture. And replace all of the fixtures, bulbs and trims and turn on the circuit breaker.

Attention, you should ensure that the breaker switch has been turned off in case that you will be shocked. Generally speaking, the led downlight is easy to install or add. You can install them in the hole that you cut. To be careful when you wire the led downlight to the existing lighting circuit.
