What's the best practice?
I am new in Canada, that's why my question below.
I want to put a piece of furniture in my basement, but I have to remove a lamp which is on the wall.
Once I disconnect the lamp and take it off, I will need to put three caps on the wires to insulate them.
Is it good practice to put them inside the drywall (if the original holes are big enough to let the caps through) or is it better to leave them out the wall and just put my piece of furniture in front of them?
Well, there should be an electrical box that the wires are in. Hopefully the wires are not just sticking out of the wall.
Just cap them off, fold them neatly back in the box and install a blank plate on the box. DO NOT cover it/them up with sheetrock or some other patch. They MUST remain accessible.
thanks for the quick reply.
But the lamps is hooked to the wall, you mean that when I remove it I will find the box?
That would be ideal, let's see, the house I just bought seems to have a good electrical system according to code, so... end of the week I will confirm it!
