So I have a duplex outlet that is powered on/off (both receptables) by the living room switch. The outlet is only connected to one white and one black wire, so I'm assuming the electricity ends there. I want to install recessed lightning in my living room and have questions regarding the wiring of the switch.
Basically from what I read on google and watching youtube videos are...
Run romex cable from lightings to the switch box.
Disconnect the black cold wire in the switch box that used to power the outlet and connect it to the newly black wire in the romex from the lights.
Wire nut all 3 ground cables together (one from box, one from romex, and one connected to the green screw of the switch)
Wirenut the 2 neutral white cables (one from box, one from romex)
Nut of the ends of wires (individually) in the receptable box as it's no longer going to be used
My question is, is it okay to still have the neutral white and ground copper wire from the OLD receptable nutted with the new stuff? Would that do anything in the circuit? All except the black wire of course.
