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.
