LED RECESSED LIGHTS--5 THINGS TO KNOW:

1. COLOR TEMPERATURE MATTERS--LED lights produce color in a far wider range than incandescent bulbs. When you buy LEDs be sure to check their package Bulbs in the 3000k range produce yellowish light. LED bulbs in the 4000-5000k range produce far whiter or even bluish light. Light color can interact adversely with the paint color on your walls!

2. USE DIMMER SWITCHES--Many people feel that LED recessed lights are too bright. So, it's often a good idea to install them on dimmer switches. But remember: light is produced differently in an LED bulb, and they work on a far lower wattage. For this reason, they don't always work well with typical dimmer switches. You'll most likely want to install them on CL DIMMER SWITCHES.

3. SPACING IS IMPORTANT: Harrison and CCS TRIANGLE ELECTRIC feel that LED recessed lights should rarely be spaced more than 4' apart in a linear path. This helps blanket the room with light. Also, lights should rarely be closer to a wall than 2'. This helps create Wall Washing--effective light coverage of the wall.

4. INCREASED MOBILITY--With the invention of ultra-thin LED recessed fixtures, can lights can now go almost anywhere, including directly beneath framing obstructions.

5. GADGETS GALORE!--LED recessed lights are now incorporating more gadgets, including built-in blue tooth speakers. These units are pricey, but they are very easy to retrofit.
