However, there is not precise rule to convert incandescent or halogen in LED. The key is to compare the efficiency between the products.

Recessed lighting: small clearance space in the ceiling? No problems!

Some of you may be already planning the next renovations to your home.

 

The first step before choosing a recessed light is to know the clearing space in the ceiling. In many cases, such a verification may bring up unknown constraints: what to do with a 2 ½ or 3 inches clearance space when many recessed lights on the market need 4 to 7 inches?

 

A solution to this potential puzzle is the low-profile recessed light series from Bazz. The models 300LPL5W and 300LPL5B are recessed lights that only need 2 ½ inches of clearance space. Moreover, they don’t need insulation box to be installed in insulated ceilings: another problem solved!
