Which Light Bulb is the Most Energy Efficient?

As opposed to the more traditional incandescent and halogen light bulbs, LED lights can offer as much as six or seven times the energy efficiency. The difference in energy efficiency will remove a significant expense from your electricity bill, and provide you with a more environmentally friendly method of lighting your home. Our installation technicians are able to provide you with an LED pot light alternative to our more conventional pot light products.

Can Potlights be Installed in a Finished Ceiling?

Yes, pot lights can be installed in a finished ceiling, but without the assistance of a trained professional the potential of damage being caused to your home is significant. In addition to the possibility of property damage, the process of installing the pot lights can itself be quite dangerous for individuals without experience in electrical work.

How Should I Space My Pot Lights?

It is common that one four-inch light fixture will be installed for every four feet of ceiling space wherever possible. This is by no means a definitive method, however, and pot lights can be spaced to your own specifications. It is important to properly space the pot lights in your home, in order to avoid the potentially unpleasant look of an airport runway.

Are Pot Lights Dimmable?

Many pot lights can be dimmed with a conventional incandescent dimmer, meaning that the dimming feature can be as easily installed to suit your recessed lighting as a traditional incandescent bulb. While this is true for a majority pot lights, some LED pot lights are not capable of the dimming function. If installing a dimmer is your intention, it is important to select an LED bulb that is designed to dim.

What Types of Pot Lights are There?

The key variation in pot lights comes with the decorative trim that is installed with the light itself. While a baffled trim has a ribbed interior to remove any possible glare, the reflective trim provides the most illumination. The lights can also come with an adjustable head, allowing you to direct the light to a specific location, or a wall trim, which blocks a portion of the light to highlight a specific area, such as a painting.

Where Can I Install Pot Lights?

Pot-lights can be installed in almost any room, interior or exterior and have a multitude of variations. We can help you determine the kinds of lights to install in what circumstances. For example, you should be installing moisture tight and water-proof lighting in bathrooms or kitchens, or areas prone to moisture. Interiors, insulated lighting should be installed where the potential for overheating exists. We always take into account safety restrictions and problems before going through with any installations.

How Long Does Pot Light Installation Take?

Mr. Potlight guarantees single day installation of all projects.

Does Pot Light Installation Require Much Wiring?

That depends on if your ceilings are already wired for pot-lights. If not, the installation of your pot-lights will require wiring. However, we ensure that no damage is done to your ceiling, drywall or floors, and we don’t require the installation of mouldings to write your ceiling.

What Colour LED Lights Should I Install?

It’s up to you to determine the light brightness, tint and colour which best accentuates your interior. We recommend choosing a bulb type and brightness before contacting us, so that we can advise you on how best to proceed. If you’re installing tinted lights, remember that they are exchangeable, though not inexpensive. Ensure you are ready to commit to a bulb.

How Do You Pass the Wire Through Closed Ceiling Without Damaging the Ceiling?

Ah, now this is a trade secret… but we’ll tell you anyway! Instead of taking your ceiling apart, we cut holes only where the pot lights will be, and use fish-tape to route the wiring through your ceiling, from hole to hole. This way, you avoid any mess and we’re out of your hair in no time at all!

Of course! We’re licensed by the ESRA and the Electrical Safety Authority. All our electricians and installers are required to have the proper documentation and will procure it for you when asked.
