LED recessed lighting is elegant, discrete and economical

A recessed light or downlight is a fixture that gets installed into a hollow opening in a ceiling. After installation it looks like the light is shining from a hole in the ceiling, concentrating the light in a downward direction as a broad floodlight or narrow spotlight.

There are three parts to a recessed lighting fixture, a housing, a trim and a bulb. The trim is the visible portion of the light, the part that we can see, it also includes the thin lining around the edge of the light. The housing is the fixture itself, it is installed inside the ceiling and contains the lamp holder.

LED recessed lighting can be used for a wide variety of different places, from residential to commercial areas. If we compare it to incandescent, CFL or fluorescent lighting, LEDs save more energy. To power a LED light bulb requires 85% less energy than incandescent light bulb and 50% less than a CFL. LEDs also produce less heat, which reduces the strain put on air conditioning systems, as well as the bulb itself. Besides the money saving, they are easier to install and last much longer than others.

The type of light that we buy depends on how we want our room to look. Certain lights look better in certain types of room placements. Our room plays a big part with the type of lights that are going to be effective. It also matters how we want to use it, do we want a focused light or something that’s broader.

The installation of our new LED recessed light begins with removing the old fixture and junction box and measuring the hole of the old fixture, to figure out if it will be suitable for our new light that usually needs approximately four to six inches in diameter. If it is not sufficient, we cut a new one. Next, we connect and secure the new wiring and pair the wires from the attached junction box to the wires in the ceiling. We insert the housing for the light fixture and attach the corresponding baffle and trim. When we have done all that, we attach our new LED bulb.

White recessed LED downlights

Many people prefer warm (yellow) white instead of cool (blue) white recessed downlights, because they are supposed to be relaxing, especially after a long day. It really depends on the area and the atmosphere we want to create. If we compare warm and cool white lights, we must also notice that cool ones attract insects in a greater extent, so they can, if the lights are too cool, also affect food hygiene. Warm light is a good for readers as it has lower blue light content that can cause eye irritation, however, the cool white light is more invigorating, and thus you will not feel tired easily.
