I bought four of these to install in a renovated attic loft not knowing exactly how they would perform, basing my decision on the thickness and a few short reviews. After installing these and livening them up all I can say is wow!
These LED units are impressive, throwing out a warm and inviting light that compliments the room. If I knew how well they would work, that’s all I would have installed throughout the 1400sq/ft attic loft. If I could up load pictures, I would gladly show these off.
Notes for installation:
1. There aren’t detailed installation instructions included with the units. You do need to know a little about lighting installations. Call an electrician and have it done right the first time.
2. Plan out your lighting scheme. I found that on an 8′ ceiling, about 36″ spacing is perfect.
3. Don’t throw away the cardboard ring which only looks like packaging; it’s your template for a perfect fit…dumpster diving is not fun.
2. Make sure you use Loomex/Box Connectors or similar when connecting multiple lights, 2 per unit, last one on the loop only needs one.
3. Where the site says to use a dimmer that is LED rated…spend a few extra bucks else they will not work as well and cut out about half way down the slider. No fault of the lights, its the dimmers fault purchased by the user.
4. If you are planning to install in an area with blown in insulation above, use a protection bag. If not, the moment you pull one out to show it off to your buddy, you’re going to need a vacuum. Not fun again.
I would highly recommend these to anyone doing reno’s or new installations where you want a low power consumption but high quality light with exceptional light dispersion that doesn’t hurt the eyes like some of the LED products or CFL bulbs I’ve come across.
