LED for 5' can

Posted by silverraven (My Page) on

Is there a screw in LED bulb that will fit into a 5" can? I have a recent remodel and hate the thought of changing out the cans to 6". Will a LED for a 6" can work in a 5" can? I definately like the look of the warm light as opposed to the cool. And I need at least a 75 watt equivalent, 100 would be preferable.
Thanks for all your info!

RE: LED for 5' can

There are a couple of very good 5" replacements.
This one: www.discoverylighting.com/creelr415retrofit.html is probably closer to a 65 watt bulb.
This one: www.discoverylighting.com/5inchled.html is much brighter, but also more expensive. It also requires that you can access the back of the can. As you'll have to put the driver in the can's junction box.
