Installing light fixture on a ceiling that has heating cable

Q.    We have electric ceiling cable heat. In our living room, we want to add a chandelier but we are concerned if we can do it with ceiling cable. Our house is 30 years old and it does not have any light fixture on the ceiling presently.

A.    I assume that you will have a licensed electrician do the installation, as you should. The safest way to do what you want is to use wire mold, but extreme care must be taken not to hit one of the ceiling wires with any driven fasteners. For that reason, it is best to use adhesive.
