Benefits of Replacing Recessed Lighting with LED

At Redhawk Electric, we’re passionate about the transformative power of LED technology in lighting, particularly in recessed lighting installations. We’ve seen firsthand the incredible benefits of LED recessed lighting, and we’re excited to share these advantages with you:

  • Energy Efficiency and Savings: Households can expect significant cost savings by installing LED recessed lighting, with an estimated $1,000 saved over ten years. This is due to LEDs using up to 90% less energy compared to traditional incandescent or halogen bulbs, which also leads to a substantial reduction in electric bills over time ([Harrison Electric][1], [Aidot][2]).
  • Longevity and Durability: LED bulbs are longevity champions, boasting an impressive lifespan of around 50,000 hours. This means they can last up to 25 times longer than traditional bulbs, sparing you the hassle and expense of frequent replacements ([Lucas LED][3]).
  • Customization and Comfort:
    • Dimming Capabilities: LEDs can dim the lights, creating a softer ambiance for any occasion while conserving energy.
    • Color Variety: With various color temperatures and styles, LED bulbs are fully customizable to complement your space’s aesthetic.
    • Space Enhancement: The space-saving design of LED recessed lights can make rooms feel more open, with more headroom and a clean, modern look.
  • Environmental Impact: Choosing LED recessed lighting isn’t just good for your wallet—it’s a step towards a greener future. LEDs have a smaller carbon footprint due to lower energy consumption and a longer lifespan, which means fewer bulbs end up in landfills. Plus, they are free from harmful substances like mercury, making them an environmentally responsible choice ([YouTube][4]).
  • Safety and Quality:
    • Reduced Heat Emission: LEDs emit very little heat compared to traditional bulbs, minimizing the risk of fire hazards and contributing to a cooler, safer environment.
    • Enhanced Color Rendering: Experience true-to-life colors with LED lighting that improves color rendering, bringing out the natural beauty of your home’s interiors.
  • Versatility in Design: Our LED recessed lighting can be installed in various locations, from subtle general lighting to accentuating specific features of your home, providing you with endless possibilities to enhance your living space.

When you choose to install recessed lighting with us, you’re not just updating your lights—you’re investing in a brighter, more efficient, and more sustainable future for your home.

Certainly, integrating LED recessed lighting into your home or business can enhance the ambiance and functionality of your space. Here are some recessed lighting FAQs that might arise when considering the benefits of installing recessed lights:

  • What are recessed lights, and where are they used?
    • Recessed can lights, or pot lights are lighting fixtures designed to provide unobtrusive illumination by shining light downwards, reflecting it off the ceiling for a soft, ambient effect. They are typically 4-6 inches wide and versatile enough to be used for general, task, or accent lighting, making them a popular choice for a variety of settings ([Ches Electric][1]).
  • How do I plan a recessed lighting layout?
    • A meticulously planned recessed lighting layout is essential for achieving the desired lighting effects in a room. It should include the configuration of lights and specify the type of lights to be installed, tailored to the room’s needs—whether for whole-room illumination, accent, or task lighting. The placement of each light should be calculated to ensure optimal lighting; for example, task lighting should be positioned directly above workstations and at least 2 feet away from walls to avoid creating shadows ([Bob Vila][2]).
  • What should I consider when installing recessed lighting?
    • When installing recessed lighting, several factors come into play:
      • Bulb Size and Placement: The size of the bulb will determine the spacing between lights; a 4-inch bulb should ideally be placed 4 feet apart from the next, while 5- and 6-inch bulbs can be spaced further apart, especially in rooms with higher ceilings.
      • Circuit Capacity: Most recessed lights are compatible with 15-amp circuits, connecting multiple lights on a single circuit. Using only 80% of the available wattage is important to avoid tripping breakers.
      • Light Bulb Types: The type of bulb used, such as “A” bulbs, “R” bulbs, halogen, or LED, will influence both the aesthetic and energy efficiency of your lighting design.
      • Installation Considerations: If you can access an attic, installation can be more straightforward. However, retrofit can lights are available for rooms without attic access or in multistory homes.
      • Professional Installation Costs: The cost of professional installation typically ranges between $200 and $360 per fixture, not including the cost of the lights themselves ([LED My Place][3]).
  • Can I install recessed lighting in an older home?
    • Yes, it’s possible to install recessed lighting in older homes. However, the installation process might be more complex if the ceiling is plaster than in newer homes with drywall ceilings. In such cases, it’s advisable to consult with a professional electrician to ensure proper handling and installation ([LED My Place][3]).
  • What are some dos and don’ts for LED recessed lighting installation?
    • Dos:
      • Measure the room to determine the appropriate spacing between lights.
      • Purchase the correct number of housings for the space.
      • Consider the size of the room to make the lighting look intentional.
      • Determine if new wiring is needed and the type of recessed lighting desired.
      • For retrofitting, use E26 base bulbs that can be directly put into the fixture.
  • Don’ts:
    • Avoid working in the dark or looking for shortcuts.
    • Never neglect safety or attempt to circumvent wiring codes.
    • Do not use damaged wiring or attempt to close a circuit alone.
    • Planning is crucial—do not neglect to plan your lighting layout thoroughly ([Bob Vila][2]).


When installing recessed track lighting, it’s essential to consider the effects you want to create in your space. If you need help figuring out where to start, consider contacting Redhawk Temecula LED Lighting at (951) 365-0587 for expert guidance.

When it comes to choosing the right recessed lights, think about the trim options available. For example, lights with an eyeball trim can be rotated to focus light on a specific area, while lights with a baffle trim provide a wider beam of light that can spread across your entire room.

At Redhawk Temecula LED Lighting, we understand how each trim option can impact the ambiance of your space. And if you want to upgrade to LED can lights, we highly recommend LED kitchen lighting and LED soffit lighting – top-rated options among our customers.

    Safety First

    Redhawk Temecula Electric ensures that its electricians adhere to safety measures. Once safety precautions are considered, the electrician confirms the gauge wiring is appropriate. Only two types of wiring exist, i.e., copper or aluminum. Redhawk Temecula Electric electricians use copper wiring. We don’t use aluminum wiring, which doesn’t connect well with other fixtures or wiring.

    Procedures for Success

    To ensure successful LED lighting and LED can light installation, our electrician uses the following procedure:

    • Step 1: Discuss the location of LED lights with the customer and draw a plan.

    • Step 2: Measure and cut holes for lights.

    • Step 3: Install proper wire from light locations to switch or dimmer.

    • Step 4: Wire and install lights as well as switches or dimmers.

    • Step 5: Test lights and clean up the work area.
