However, if you want to learn more about recessed can lighting and which is type of recessed can lighting is right for you, then we can assist you below as well!

The two recessed can lighting considerations deal with the housing and the trim. 

When choosing on the right trim for your Naperville home this is largely based on the homeowner’s personal preferences. 

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.

First 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. 

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

Really, new construction housing tends to be bulkier and are 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 are 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 an 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 of your existing normal household 120 volt current. 

Low voltage is energy efficient and uses only a 12 volt current.  In this situation a special transformer is needed to reduce the voltage. 

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

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