LED home lighting has evolved to the point that it can perform at equal levels to other forms of indoor and outdoor home lighting. Retrofit solutions are available that enable new savings in recessed home lighting that offset the initial cost of LED. The lights cost less to operate, and the long lifespan of the lamps minimizes replacement costs to near negligible levels.
Recessed led home lighting retrofits can be obtained from Illuminations Lighting and Design either in the form of new lamps that fit into existing recessed housings and trims, or in the form of a new trim and lamp that are installed as an all-in-one unit.
Replacing existing recessed lighting plans is only an option for an environment where aesthetics and high performance do not matter. The lamps contain many LED bulbs, so there is a possibility that someone looking up may see the many points of light shining downward from the lamp.
This does get the job done from a practical perspective, but it is not attractive from a decorative perspective. Beam spread is also limited, because there is nothing to diffuse the light and spread it farther throughout the room.
There is value to this option, however, in workrooms or small industrial offices where the purpose is to light the room and not to decorate it. The cost of operating recessed lighting will be lowered, and the lamps will last up to 10 times longer than the halogens they replace.
For a more complete led home lighting system, however, we recommend upgrading the entire recessed lighting modules. These are far more appropriate to custom home interiors. They are attractive, Energy Star rated, and high performance.
The new module includes an LED lamp, a high-brightness, diffusing lens, and a chic trim that compliments any interior décor. The lamps operate at 3000K color temperature and 636 lumens. This is a warm, bright light that contributes a fine aesthetic to any living room, kitchen, dining room, or home bathroom lighting.
Because of a frosted lens that covers the LED lamp assembly, you get a more diffused, wider beam pattern. The effect it creates is indistinguishable from other types of recessed home lighting to all but a trained lighting professional.
These new LED home lighting modules are compatible with standard 5 and 6 inch housings and will work with current lighting control systems. The lamps can be dimmed to 5% of their original brightness with select lutron dimmer controls.
The 14.6 watt LED lamp contained within the module produces as much light as a 65 watt halogen lamp. It also has an expected lamp life of 50,000 hours, which is 10 times longer than some halogen bulbs. Both the lower operating cost and the savings on replacement costs make these retrofit assemblies an investment with a sure, solid return.
Retrofitting an entire LED home lighting design in this fashion results in a much more refined architectural look that compliments superior interior décor. It also ensures maximum lamp performance because the lamp is housed in equipment that ensures it will operate as intended by the manufacturer.
