    Has anyone dealt with heating lights in the washroom recently. I have to replace an oyster light in a washroom and thinking of installing a heating light instead. How much money should I allocate for this?

    Do you mean a unit like this - IXL 2 x 375W 3 In 1 Triumph Bathroom Heater
    Or this one - Heller White LED 3 in 1 Bathroom Heater
    Easy enough to do but be aware of the larger hole in the ceiling that may need to be cut and reinforced to accept the unit. Also the clearance for the lamps within the ceiling space is 285mm and nothing flammable nearby.
    For example - there is little clearance with cathedral style ceilings....conventional flat ceilings are fine.
    I installed heat/light/exhaust unit in one of the rentals and it does a good job.....was on sale $89.
    Allow up to 2 hours to fit should be ok - looking around $300 unless you DIY.

    I think anything Electrical needs to be done by an Electrician unless its a normal standard household electrical connector, which they would rarely be.

    Good point - always use a licensed electrician to do the connections.

    I have been told this by an electrician so thinking of putting this off for now.
