Options Adding Recessed Lighting

Posted by atct86 (My Page) on

I am looking to install recessed lighting in two bedrooms of my house, in the existing drywall ceiling.

I know there has been alot of progress with LED lights, but are people installing special LED cans, or just putting LED bulbs into regular cants?

What are the best brands for existing ceiling installation?

LED bulbs are energy-savers because I have that installed in my house as one of my preferred lighting facilities. But I have a friend who keeps on telling me that since the time he had started using solar panels he had experienced a remarkable decrease of energy bills. He is recommending me this site if i want to try some solar products available.

I did not take heed of him sayng that to me but I guess if my increasing electric bill would persist, I might try one.

Both ways.

If you have cans already installed, see if retrofit kits will fit.

If you're putting in the cans, just get regular cans and the LED kits. Unless you're in California then install Title 24 compliant fixtures that have a connector just for energy efficient lights. You can do this elsewhere too it's just more expensive.

I would recommend LED bulbs.
Florescent light bulbs cost money and electricity much more than leds.

So now i swictched to led bulbs .And they save my bill up to 80%!!!

By the way,there are many kinds of base(e27/gu10/mr16) of led bulbs just choose one suits yours.
I brought from Amazon: LOHAS-LED
