Recessed Lighting 7-26-11 There are lots of new solutions out there.
I have been reading some of the posts in BeakTime on recessed lighting. There is some really good information contained in these comments and I am grateful to everyone that has posted. I am always ready to learn something new! Some of the posts are dated and so much has happened in the recessed lighting world in just the last few months. There are now 144 different CFL (fluorescent screw in) bulbs for existing fixtures, new fluorescent housings, and all kinds of new trims. We have 3000 in our catalog alone and there are other great companies that have ones we don't. Trims that make your fixture "air tight" but still with style. Then there is the LED explosion! There are LED retrofits, LED Fixtures and LED Bulbs that work great. ( and a few that don't). So the point is, do not limit yourself but look at everything. And yes I am kind of biased, just look where I work. Oh, just wait until induction lighting and nano dot technology hits the recessed world. I will wait until later to post that. Thanks for reading my post.
