Light wire where does it go


In homes with the wiring in some type of conduit such as FMC or EMT, sometimes Blue wire is used to connect from the room light switch to the light or to the switched outlet that is intended for the light.
In Ceiling Fans with a light, Blue wire is also used on the light ckt.
