Recessed lighting will add light to dark and often difficult to reach spaces in a home and a recessed light that offers ventilation makes it even more useful. A dark shower stall in the bathroom, a tucked away alcove under a mildew-prone stairwell and a stuffy dark closet are popular locations where a vented recessed light comes in handy. By combining ventilation and illumination a recessed vent light does both jobs of moving the air and keeping it fresh for a comfortable environment.

Q: Tim, it's a very long story, and don't think I'm crazy. I'm building a new home and wondering if I can install all the electrical wiring myself. It's not a big home, but it's got all the things going on you'd normally have in a home, including quite a few three- and four-way switches. I've watched a bunch of online videos, I've read a few authoritative books and I'm feeling pretty confident. What am I missing? What would you do if you were me? —Margo F., Albany, Ga.

The room in a home that’s the best target for mold and mildew to grow and thrive is a bathroom without good ventilation. You can prevent that by installing an exhaust fan that removes all the moisture through the wall and outside while preventing damage to nearby wood surfaces.

Electricians can enter the field without four-year degrees and can instead opt for a less expensive trade school education or an apprenticeship that allows them to earn while they hone their skills. 

In addition to the skylight, illumination comes from this custom light designed by the client. The client drew up the design and gathered the materials from Black Market Furniture, the same company that made the vanity and shelving unit. Then, the project’s electrician helped him put it all together and hang it from the ceiling.
