A Handyman Helping Hand

wiring a light fixture

Am hoping to replace some light fixtures in my home. Was shopping for new light fixtures and a warning label on the boxes indicated that many homes built before 1985 had wiring for 60 degrees centigrade. The new light fixtures recommended 90 degree centigrade wiring or there is a risk of fire. I recently took a home wiring course at the local community college and read a few manuals, and nowhere was this temperature related issue discussed. How do I determine if the wiring is adequate to accomadate the new fixtures?
