Our Electricians have extensive experience in chandelier installation. We take the necessary precautions to ensure there is no damage done to the drywall or your new lighting fixture.

Heavy Chandeliers and Ceiling Fans
These fixtures can be exceptionally heavy, not to mention fragile! Also, if you’re removing an old ceiling fan or chandelier, you may run into unexpected issues. As Licensed Electricians, we are prepared for any surprises and trained to install your new fixture safely and up to code.

The weight of your new chandelier will determine how the Installation will be done and the type of electrical box that may be needed as well as any additional support. At times, the electrical ceiling box in your home may not be sufficient or it may be too small to be used with the fixture that you want to install. The Ceiling Box may not be sufficient to hold the weight of the fixture and extra support may be required either in the form of additional support in the ceiling or some other means depending on the weight of the fixture. Additionally, we use the same amount of care in taking down your old fixture as we do installing your new one – in case you plan to relocate it or store it for later use.

We Take Care
The exact process will vary for every service call, depending largely on the size of the fixture or fan and the ceiling itself. We do our best to ensure we make the smallest hole possible in your ceiling drywall and carefully install your new centerpiece for a flawless finish.

Our Licensed Electricians carry out every Chandelier installation in Calgary with care, by installing up to code, with all safety regulations in place.

Always Hire a Professional

No matter urgent any electrical repairs seem, it’s never okay to attempt to handle them on your own. Trying to take care of electrical problems without professional training is extremely dangerous. If you or someone else aren’t hurt during your attempt, there’s still a chance that you’ve left something undone that poses a huge risk to you, your home, or your family. In fact, faulty electrical wiring is the number one cause of house fires in the Canada, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. So in order to make sure that your home is safe, always rely on a professional for any electrical services.

For an electrician to install a chandelier it can range typically $600- $900. This cost is when you factor in labor, and scaffolding to reach the higher ceiling heights normally found in chandelier installations.

After it is safe take the black wire (hot) and connect to the black wire on the chandelier, take the white wire (neutral) and connect it to the white wire on the chandelier. Finally make sure to connect the ground wires together. This wire is either bare copper, green or green/yellow.

The installation of a chandelier can vary depending on the complexity of the situation. Pendant style lights usually range from $150 – $250 depending on the size and whether they require extra assembly and reinforcement of the electrical box. Chandeliers tend to be on the pricier side for installing $600 – $900 because they often require scaffolding to reach the higher ceilings.

Chandelier installations depending on the weight of the fixture may require the electrical box to be reinforced to support the weight. Another thing to consider is the height of the ceiling. Most chandeliers are hung in the main entrance of a home over 20 feet high and require scaffolding to install them safely.

The challenging factors for chandelier installations come in the assembly of complex chandeliers that have multiple pieces used to create a specific design. Another challenge you may face in the installation is erecting the scaffolding used to reach the higher than normal ceiling heights. Another common challenge faced is some chandeliers can be very heavy and require multiple people to install them safely. Heavier chandeliers also need to be reinforced to ensure the pure weight does not rip the box out of the ceiling.

A simple light fixture can range from $150 – $300 dollars to install depending on if there is power or not.
