How to Select
How to select Recessed Lighting Kits
Recessed lighting is one of the best ways to illuminate your home—both indoors and out. There are countless benefits of installing such lighting fixtures, including the ability to customize them according to the location’s needs, easy installation, low energy usage and high functionality. The following guide will help you pay attention to the most essential and important details, ensuring that you select the recessed lighting kit that will suit your home’s needs the most.
First and foremost, it’s important to pay attention the recessed lighting kit’s specifications. Meaning that you need to ensure that it matches the installation and line requirements of the place where you want to mount the devices.
The next thing to consider is the type of housing that your future recessed lighting fixture will have. The types that exist today are divided into two categories including old and new construction housing. The first type will be perfect for installations that don’t have access to the ceiling and are mounted on auxiliary surfaces. If you do have access to the ceiling or can get it from the attic, select the new construction housing type.
After the housing type is specified, you need to know whether the fixture will be in direct contact with the ceiling insulation. If not, look for kits that are marked NON-IC, in other cases, IC-rated lighting kits are the only options that can be selected.
Now you need to select the can size. 6” is the most commonly used can size that is compatible with most lighting applications. Smaller cans of 5”, 4” and 3” diameter are perfect to be used with accent and task light applications.
The trim style is also one of the important factors that you should consider before buying a recessed lighting kit. You can select among the following types: open, baffle, reflector, shower lens or eyeball. To know what type suits you the most, specify the fixture’s purpose. Baffle, reflector and open types of trims are oftentimes used as the main lighting source in a room. Eyeball type is equipped with an adjustable body and is used for accent and decorative lighting purposes.
Selecting the trim type is the last step to complete when looking for recessed lighting kits. Now you know all of the important details and can find the perfect fixture for your home. Remember that apart from the lighting appliance itself, a kit should include all of the necessary mounting accessories and oftentimes the light bulb. To install the fixture that you selected follow the instructions or hire someone who knows how to do it properly.
