Upgrading to LED recessed lighting is a lot easier now that e-conolight offers a 4-inch version of its popular LED recessed retrofit kits.
The new 4-inch LED recessed light is available with 600 lumens and 2700K or 630 lumens and 3000K. This fixture uses just 9 watts and lasts for an estimated 60,000 hours of use, making this one of the brightest, most energy efficient LED recessed retrofit kits available.
If the 4” LED recessed fixture is on for an average of five hours a day, each fixture should last for over 32 years! Not only does the 4” LED recessed light lower electricity bills, it also saves customers money because they won’t have to purchase replacement lamps.
The 4-inch LED retrofit sports a one-piece design and sturdy construction with an integrated trim so installation is a snap:
- Turn off power to the fixture
- Plug the connector from the LED to the connector on the Edison-style socket adaptors
- The push-in retention clips mean users can push the LED kit flush against the ceiling
- Turn on power to the fixture
Ideal for both residential and commercial applications, the 4-inch LED recessed retrofit is rated for both retrofit and new construction projects. It is suitable for IC-rated recessed housings as well and is compatible with most dimmers to 10 percent.
The new LED 4” recessed retrofit retails at e-conolight.com for just $26.99.
Not only does the LED surface mount downlight offer tens of thousands of hours of operation, it also features easy installation and the ability to mount it almost anywhere. The LED downlight is UL listed for wet locations, so customers can use it to update lighting in critical areas like both the kitchen and bath, including the shower.
Willis Ponds, a partner at Willis Sinclair Homebuilders in Brays Island, SC, appreciates the downlight’s versatility and sealed design for use in bathroom design.
“This is a great solution for showers because it’s completely sealed,” he said.
The surface mount downlight is a recessed lighting fixture designed to fit into a 4/0 junction box, and, thanks to included torsion springs, it can also be retrofitted for most 5” and 6” recessed housings.
Ponds agrees the design is one of the fixture’s best features.
“The best part about this kit is the ability to install it in a junction box,” he said. “I like this feature because when building a new house, you do not have to worry as much about placing can lights (because) an octagon light box takes up far less space so light placement is much easier.”
Not having a big hole in the ceiling or worrying about a can light protruding above the ceiling is also a plus, Ponds added. Not only is there less trim work and patching, but builders can better insulate around the light box.
Ponds also appreciates the ENERGY STAR® rating, the 13W LED at 3000K, 80 CRI and 800 lumens.
“This fixture gives excellent light, looks good, and is energy efficient,” he said. “This is a great light fixture that I have used several times now and love.”
