With the growing popularity of LED lighting, more and more people are looking to retrofit their existing recessed lighting with LED bulbs.

John recently wrote a post on converting your recessed lights into LEDs that featured these energy-efficient LED retrofit kits on February 27th. In the meantime, our the team from the Lamps Plus Professionals side attended a trade show. They had a booth with these retrofit kits actually installed. They were really enthusiastic about how well these recessed modules work and came back with some pretty exciting additional information:

  1. They are dimmable.
  2. They consume only 12 watts of power but produce the equivalent wattage of a 65 watt reflector or an 18 watt compact fluorescent.
  3. Their bulb life is 50,000 hours, 5 times that of most compact fluorescents.

That means that if you use these lights an average of 5 hours a day, the bulbs could last over 25 years!
