Recessed Lighting Covers
Greetings and welcome to your complete source for recessed lighting covers. Please feel free to browse around the pages of our site to find the best in recessed lighting and recessed lighting equipment such as covers, receptacles, bulbs, and more.
Recessed lighting is a great way to keep the look of your house neat and clean. There are no protruding bulbs that are a sore to the sight, not to mention can cause unwanted accidents when hit. A recessed light fixture’s bulk is hidden inside the ceiling which means all hardware related to it including messy wires is hidden from plain view.
Talking about lighting covers means one of two things. A blank/unused hole in the ceiling can be covered temporarily with one of the many available covers made from thermal insulating material that helps keep heat or cooling well within the house. It is a known fact backed by the Department of Energy that holes in the ceiling are costly for energy bills because they waste a significant amount of cold or hot air made and maintained by energy-hungry air conditioners and heaters.
Another thing people expect when they search for recessed lighting covers are decorative covers. These covers are also otherwise known as recessed lighting trim kits. They are basically the housing where the bulb goes and provides two main purposes. The first and obvious purpose is to house the bulb. The next purpose is to shield the interior of the house to the ceiling—as previously mentioned to keep the air in or prevent it from coming in, and to prevent unwanted entry of insect and pests lurking above the ceiling.
A good decorative lighting cover should be available in many styles and colors that will match any known interior theme and provide good insulation between the ceiling and the room or space that is lit.
To simplify your shopping experience, make sure to know the exact size that you need to avoid confusion. Sizes are defined by the diameter of the hole in the ceiling.
