I'm having power and overhead lights installed in the sugarhouse. I was originally planning on two simple fixtures centered on the wall ties with one of them being right over the evaporator. The evaporator is centered.
The electrician is worried about the heat and steam affecting the fixture or bulb and the danger of a broken bulb over the sap/syrup. He's right - especially if I use CFLs.
So, how do you all light up your sugarhouse? Specifically, where is your lighting placed and what kind of fixtures do you use? Mine is 12'x20' and the wall ties are about 9' up. Would four spaced out evenly in each direction like a rectangle be overkill?
