Recess Can Light Installation

Before you begin any kind of recess can light installation, spend some time to get to know the basics about these kinds of lights.

How can you tell what size is right? The standard light sizes are 3", 4", 5" and 6". The rule is the lower the ceiling the smaller the recessed can. A typical installation would be using a 4" can light to highlight a piece of art work. For ceilings 8 ft and over, a 5" or 6" can lights will look fantastic. Recess lights of this size are generally used to light up the room. However, they can be used for accent lighting, as well.

Recess Can Lighting

Also, recess can lighting comes in different voltages. Typical incandescent can lights operate at 120v and utilize 120v light bulbs. Incandescent cans are the oldest and most reliable as well as the least expensive. Incandescent or 120v bulbs are also cheaper than most low voltage bulbs.

The other type of recess can is low voltage. Low voltage lights hook up to to 120V but then make use of a transformer or ballast to lower the voltage to 12V. Low voltage recess can use less power than incandescent bulbs, but can be a little bit more costly to replace.

Recess Can Light Trim

Recessed Lighting

A recess can light trim is the ring and reflector which covers the inside area of the light. The trim is usually one piece and it installs into the can housing before the lamp. The trim's function is to reflect or aim light out of the can while covering the metal housing of the unit.

Trims are available in a variety of styles that are made for a particular use. Be sure to ask our electricians which trims are available for your recess lighting!
