Recessed Retrofit Led Trim Kitcomments (2) November 27th, 2012 in Project Gallery
I have a number of recessed incandescent light cans in ceilings that have a normal attic above them. I'm concerned about air leakage into the attic even though they are covered on top with insulation in the attic. Therefore I'm thinking about retrofitting them with an LED recessed retrofit trim kit.
Question: Is this type of retrofit safe from heat buildup? Are they any good? The unit I'm considering using is made by Utilitech Pro #0113539, dimmable, a Lowes own brand named fixture. It is a 65-watt replacement using 13 watts. It sells for $39.98.
I would appreciate opinions, SmartbuildingGrp (.. a homeowner who had to come up with a name.)
