LED recessed spotlight

LED Recessed spotlights serve many different purposes, but they have one primary advantage over the old halogen spotlights we know, and that's heat evolution. The reason is that LED does not develop nearly as much heat as we know it from traditional spotlights, and thus you can more easily install, or even retrofit a LED recessed spotlight simply because the requirements for the installation itself are not nearly as extensive due to the fact that there is not the same fire hazard.

Recessed spotlights

LED Recessed spotlights are generally easier to deal with than their halogen counterparts. As mentioned, the heat generation is much less and the risk of recessed spotlights blackening or igniting the building material around the spotlight is virtually non-existent.
This also means that these spotlights require significantly less clearance above and around them. Therefore, they can also be installed in places where it would otherwise not be possible to install a traditional halogen spotlight. This opens up completely new possibilities for decorating with light and makes it easy to completely hide the light sources, so that the lighting almost seems to emerge out of nowhere.
In addition, there is of course the economy. You can get away with a power consumption that is 7 times lower than with a halogen bulb. This means that if you have been using a 20 W halogen bulb, you can get by with a 3 W LED bulb. This is a saving that can really be felt in electricity consumption.
At the same time, the lifetime of a LED bulb is much longer. We're not just talking years! With normal use averaging 4-6 hours every day, a LED bulb can easily celebrate 10 years in the socket before it says goodbye. That would normally require a 5-6 halogen bulbs to last that long.

Recessed spot LED

So a recessed spot with LED bulbs is the way to go - and in fact you don't need to change anything other than the bulb itself. Because in the vast majority of cases you can reuse any transformer and if the spot has a dimmer switch, that's no problem either. Many of our LED spots can be dimmed. This is clearly stated in the product description, both if it can and if it cannot.
The colour tone of the light is basically the same as a halogen spot, but the light seems brighter and more constant. You also avoid UV and IR radiation, which is usually a "side effect" of halogen bulbs and - if the bulb is not equipped with a UV filter - contributes to discolouring the objects illuminated.
Finally, you avoid emitting heavy metals into the environment when you finally discard the LED bulb. Because unlike halogen bulbs, LED bulbs don't contain mercury or other heavy metals.
The lower energy consumption also helps to reduce CO2 emissions and saves nature from a lot of carbon dust and other toxic substances. Coal is still the most common source of energy for electricity generation. So with a recessed spot with LED bulbs, you get a much greener and environmentally friendly solution on the bottom line - and save a lot of money over the bulb's lifetime.

How LED spots work

The different models of Recessed Spotlights that we sell are both 230v, and 12v, which means that they can be connected to every conceivable installation.
