All You Need to Know About LED Downlight in Malaysia

How do I choose a downlight?

The first thing you need to do is determine which room you want to install the downlight LED products in. For rooms that tend to get hot like the kitchen, it’s best to opt for white-coloured light. Next, you should balance efficiency or the watts with the brightness or the lumens. The higher the lumens are, the higher the wattage will be. After figuring out the efficiency, pay attention to the angle and the placement of the downlight. The Colour Rendering Index (CRI) and the Insulation Contact (IC) Rating should be considered as well.

What is a LED downlight?

LED downlights are known as can lights or recessed lights that are embedded into the ceiling as a seamless accessory that brings brightness to you. Often, an LED downlight can be installed anywhere in the house that you like but it is recommended to install it in large rooms or rooms with low ceilings.

Do LED downlights get hot?

LED downlights do heat up but not as hot as other light bulbs. If you wish the LED downlights do not heat that much, there are steps you could follow to prevent the LED downlights from heating up. Placing the lightbulb straight up or down will help cool down the light bulb. This is because a lightbulb that is placed vertically tends to cool down faster as the heat rises and escapes faster compared to a LED lightbulb placed horizontally. However, removing the LED lightbulb while it is still hot is not the best idea as it may cause severe burning.

How many lumens does a downlight need?

A downlight can have lumens up to 900, depending on the wattage.

What wattage is best for LED downlights?

The wattage of your LED downlight also depends on the height of your house. Downlights with 9W to 15W should be sufficient to light most homes with a ceiling of 2.4 to 2.7 metres.

What are the best downlights?
