Downlights are a type of lighting that is often found in modern buildings. There are several kinds of downlights. For example there are dimmable downlights and there are nondimmable downlights.
A dimmable downlight's brightness can be adjusted using a special switch called a dimmer. The dimmer adjusts the brightness and is compatible with dimmable downlights. A nondimmable downlight can not be dimmed. Its brightness cannot be adjusted. It only shines one brightness and that is it. It is not suggested that you use a non dimmable downlight with a dimmer appliance. Damage can result to the fixture and to the bulb if you try to dim a non dimmable bulb.
Another defining factor of downlights is whether they can be tilted or not. This simply means that their bulb can be moved to shine in different directions. Tilted downlights can moved to shine in different directions. Non tilted downlights cannot be moved and are stationary. They only shine in one direction.
The shape of a downlight is another defining characteristic. Downlights are typically either circular in shape or square. The shape of the downlight determines in what appliance they can be used with. The shape of the downlight must match the fixture it is inserted in. Otherwise it will not hold.
What Are The Benefits Of Using LED Downlights?
LED downlights like other LED lightbulbs are much more energy efficient. They typically use from 1-3 watts of energy compared to 50 or more watts. This can save money on utility bills. Another benefit of LED downlights is that they last for a significantly longer period of time than halogen and incandescent downlights. An LED downlight can last for tens of thousands of hours. Halogen bulbs on the other hand last only for about 3000 hours on average. LED lightbulbs also retain their color for their entire lifetime. Halogen bulbs tend to lose their color after about 2000 hours of use. Less energy, longer life and a consistent color are the benefits to using Led Inbouwspots over halogen and incandescent bulbs.
