What is LED Recessed Lighting?
Recessed lighting is without a doubt one of the most practical and functional upgrades you can make to your home or business. Recessed lighting, also known as downlighting or can lighting, is designed to be flush with the surface it illuminates (usually a ceiling). These lights are adaptable and can be used in a variety of settings. LED recessed lighting is the most common type of architectural lighting on the market today, and it's one of the easiest ways to modernize an existing space quickly. As LED recessed lighting suppliers, we're seeing it used more frequently in new construction and retrofit applications.
Not only will quality LED recessed lighting give your space a clean, modern, and appealing appearance, but it can also be used to highlight special building features, illuminate decorative objects and artwork, and set moods with the use of a dimmer. LED recessed fixtures are not only attractive, but they are also energy efficient and last much longer than traditional bulbs.
Recessed lighting can brighten any room.
Recessed lights, also known as downlights or can lights, are suspended from the ceiling rather than hanging from it. This understated lighting choice can help to open up and expand rooms with low ceilings. Recessed light housings can be used in a variety of rooms, including bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, and offices. Outdoor recessed lighting is also available for areas such as covered patios.
Are you stumped as to where to begin your search for the perfect recessed lighting? Lepro can be of assistance.
What's the total number of lights I'd like to add?
Without overloading the circuit, you can add lights that draw as many watts as the existing fixture can handle.
The existing fixture, for example, uses four 100-watt bulbs for a total capacity of 4 x 100 = 400 watts. On the circuit, you can safely install up to 400 watts of lighting.
Keep in mind that LED recessed lighting is an option. If a recessed light kit is LED compatible, it will be noted on the product page.
If you want to use more watts than the existing fixture can handle, consult an electrician to see how much power the circuit can handle.
What's On the Other Side of the Ceiling?
To figure out what size housing and trim you'll need, measure the hole in the ceiling. Because you'll be working with an existing light fixture if the attic is above the ceiling, the project will be relatively simple. You'll need to remodel your living quarters. However, if the housing will be surrounded by insulation, you'll need one that is rated for insulation. Look for IC or IC-rated products, which stand for Insulation Contact.
If there is a second floor above, installing the light is more difficult. It's possible that a shallow ceiling housing will be required, and the wire will have to be run through the ceiling frame.
What is the best way for me to figure out what kind of wiring I have?
Is the current wiring made of aluminum or copper? Use the same material and gauge (thickness) of wiring as the existing wire. If the existing wiring is fabric-insulated or does not have a ground wire, have it inspected by a qualified electrician to see if it needs to be replaced.
Types of Bulbs
Halogen and LED bulbs are commonly used in recessed lighting. LED bulbs are a long-lasting and energy-efficient option that can help you save money on your energy bills. These bulbs are also cool to the touch, making them safer and more convenient to replace. Screw-in bulbs work in some recessed lights, but pin-base bulbs work in others.
