Recessed Ceiling Lights
Whether you are making repairs and replacements or installing a new system, having the right tools will make getting the high hat lights you require easy. IC, or insulation contact, means that your LED high hats can contact insulation. Non-IC options should be placed several inches away from insulation to avoid complications, and absolutely cannot come into direct contact with it. Line voltage and low voltage options are available, as well. Line voltage options can be directly plugged into a household’s default electrical system and operate with ease. Low voltage requires a special transformer and is great for high contrast or accent lighting applications.
In addition to our selection of recessed can lights, we also have a great selection of trim styles that will help you get the look and functionality you desire. From adjustable options that can give you variable, flexible lighting to purely decorative models to reflectors that maximize the amount of light you get from your bulbs, there are many options to consider. With our powerful LED recessed lighting, you will have great light options that are both effective and efficient. Save money with long lasting, durable light fixtures that do not need repairs or replacements for years. Also, a lower energy consumption means a reduction in your energy bill!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is recessed lighting?
Recessed lighting is the use of light fixtures which are installed into an opening in a ceiling usually at evenly space intervals. When recessed lights are installed this way, they create patterns of light shining from the hole in the ceiling, concentrating the light in a downward direction much like a broad floodlight or even narrow spotlights. There are three main components to recessed lighting:
The housing is the lighting fixture itself that is installed into the ceiling and holds the lamp holder.
The trim is the visible portion of the light. It is the insert that is seen when looking up into the fixture, and also includes the thin lining around the edge of the light. Trims can be baffles, lens,luminous, adjustable eyeballs and gimbals.
There are many different types of bulbs that can be inserted into recessed lighting fixtures, with the amount of heat generated by the bulb being a unique consideration. Here is a sampling of what various recessed lighting parts look like:
Where is recessed lighting used?
Recessed can lights are used for task lighting, decorative lighting, area lighting or even shower lighting. Can lights as they are often referred to, are used in commercial and residential settings to add a decorative flair to any room. LED high hat lights (yet another name), are energy efficient and last longer than ordinary bulbs. When you use LED recessed lighting, you can forget about changing your light bulbs for years.
What are the benefits of LED Can Lights?
- LED recessed lighting technology has developed to the point that it has overcome most all of the early drawbacks of LED technologies. Lighting quality is much better in terms of color rendering, color temperature and lumen output (compared to wattage used).
- LED high hat lights have a much lengthier lifetime which means that the lights need to be replaced less often than other types. This is particularly important when it comes to celing lighting which may it difficult to reach the fixtures.
- Although LED lighting is more costly at the outset upon point of purchase, costs are more than made up over the long term due to the fact that they utilize much less energy than conventional lights. This saves on utility costs over time. They also don’t waste energy emitted as heat.
