LED lighting retrofits are very common because of the cost savings they can provide. 

LEDs save on energy costs because they are very energy efficient compared to other lighting options. 

They also help to save money over time because the cost of replacement is very low since many types of LEDs are rated to last 50 years or more.

Residential and commercial recessed lights can be retrofitted fit to LED by using the proper trims and light bulbs.

It’s important to consider the types of switches and dimmers that are used to control the LED lighting as well.

Most older dimmer switches are not compatible with newer LED lights. We can help determine if your switching or dimmers would need to be replaced as part of the new lighting arrangements. 

Below are some other considerations for your recessed lighting.

The two most common recessed can lighting considerations deal with the housing and the trim as well as Lumens for brightness and Kelvins for the color temperature. 

When choosing the right trim for your Naperville home this is largely based on the homeowner’s personal preferences as far as the cosmetic looks go. We can provide pictures of previous work. 

On the other end, picking the right housing can get a bit more technical and this is where the electricians at Reliant Naperville Electrician can help you out with your recessed LED lighting questions.

Another question to consider is whether you are in the process of a remodel or new construction. 

This will determine if you need to use a remodel or new construction style of housing. 

Remodeling lighting installations and New Construction lighting Installations.

New Construction housings really are better used when you have an accessible space around where your light will be placed. 

A new construction housing tends to be bulkier and is installed in-between the joist beams or can even be installed onto hanger bars. 

On the other hand, Remodel housing tend to be much less bulky and is better used when you have limited space or even restricted access to the space above the new fixture.

Newer wafer light LED lights offer a great remodel option for recessed lighting installation.

These lights are very slim and help with many more design and layout options.

Next, you need to understand if you need IC or Non-IC rated pieces when picking the right housing for your recessed can lighting. 

IC stands for insulation contact rating which means that the light fixture can more or less touch the thermal insulation. 

On the other hand, Non-IC which means non-insulation contact means that the light fixture can not touch the thermal insulation and ultimately should be kept 3 inches from any insulation.

Two other areas of consideration are Line or Low Voltage and your trim size. 

Line voltage will operate on your existing normal household 120-volt system. 

Low voltage is energy efficient and uses only a 12-volt power source.  In this situation, a special transformer or driver is needed to reduce the voltage. 

Lastly, trim size which is part of the light and really reflects your personal preference for the look of the space.  

Standard trims come in sizes of 4″ and 6” in diameter. You can contact us here to get your lights installed the right way.

Here are a few different trim types:

  • Baffle Trim
  • Reflector Trim
  • Adjustable Trim
  • Lensed Trim
  • Wall Washed Trim
  • Decorative Trim

Frequently Asked Questions about Recessed Light Installation.

What is recessed lighting?

Recessed lighting refers to light fixtures that are installed into the ceiling, creating a “recessed” or flush appearance.

What are the benefits of recessed lighting?

Recessed lighting can create a sleek and modern look in a room, provide task lighting where needed, and can be used to highlight specific features in a space. It can also help to make a room appear larger and more open.

How many recessed lights do I need in a room?

The number of recessed lights needed in a room will depend on the size of the room and the desired level of lighting. As a general rule, you should space recessed lights about 6 feet apart in a room with 8-foot ceilings.

Can I install recessed lighting myself?

It is possible to install recessed lighting yourself if you have some electrical and DIY experience. However, it is recommended that you hire a licensed electrician to ensure that the installation is done safely and up to code.

What type of bulb should I use in my recessed lights?

The type of bulb you use in your recessed lights will depend on your personal preference and the intended use of the lights. LED bulbs are a popular choice as they are energy-efficient and long-lasting. Make sure to choose a bulb with the correct wattage and color temperature for your needs.

How do I choose the right size of recessed lighting for my room?

The size of recessed lighting you choose will depend on the size of your room and the intended use of the lights. As a general rule, 4-inch recessed lights are suitable for smaller rooms or accent lighting, while 6-inch or larger lights are better for larger rooms or general lighting.

Can I install dimmer switches with my recessed lights?

Yes, you can install dimmer switches with your recessed lights to adjust the level of lighting in a room. Make sure to choose a dimmer switch that is compatible with the type of bulb you are using.

How can I ensure that my recessed lighting installation is up to code?

To ensure that your recessed lighting installation is up to code, it is recommended that you hire a licensed electrician who is familiar with the local building codes and regulations. They will be able to install the lights safely and ensure that they are properly wired and grounded.

What are LED wafer lights?

LED wafer lights are ultra-thin, lightweight LED light fixtures that can be easily installed into ceilings, walls, or other surfaces.

What are the benefits of LED wafer lights?

LED wafer lights offer a number of benefits, including energy efficiency, long lifespan, low maintenance, and high-quality lighting output. They also have a slim design that allows for easy installation and a modern look.

Can LED wafer lights be installed in any type of ceiling?

LED wafer lights can be installed in most types of ceilings, including drywall, plaster, and drop ceilings. However, it is important to make sure that the ceiling can support the weight of the fixture.

How do LED wafer lights differ from traditional recessed lights?

LED wafer lights are much thinner and lighter than traditional recessed lights, making them easier to install and more versatile in terms of placement. They also offer better energy efficiency and longer lifespan than traditional recessed lights.

What is the lifespan of LED wafer lights?

The lifespan of LED wafer lights can vary depending on the manufacturer and model, but they typically last between 25,000 and 50,000 hours.

Can LED wafer lights be dimmed?

Yes, many LED wafer lights can be dimmed using a compatible dimmer switch. However, it is important to choose the right dimmer switch that is compatible with the LED driver in the fixture.
