Not A Bright Idea

Light or illumination is a building requirement for the bathroom bathtub and/or shower area, so you can see what you are doing - A good idea.

Installing an unprotected light bulb above the shower head - Not a good idea. 

The House Whisperer inspector spotted this electrical safety concern in an older Walnut Creek house.

The surface temperature of a 60 watt light bulb can approach 260F degrees.

Water splashing on a hot incandescent light bulb can cause the bulb to explode… littering the shower pan or bathtub with glass shrapnel and possibly injuring someone.

An exposed light bulb in a bathroom doesn’t meet electrical code, is a safety concern and a liability.
