As for the interior decoration of a house, lighting is really important, not only for practical illumination but also for room beautification. There are many kinds of lights for you to choose, but today we will only focus on LED recessed lighting which refers to fixtures that are set into ceilings or walls. LED recessed lighting is mainly composed of two parts: the housing which is hidden in the ceiling that you can’t see and the trim which is visible. There are two types of housings, New Construction and Remodel. The former is used when you have full access to the place where your LED recessed lighting is going to be installed while the latter is used when you have limited or no access to the space above the lighting fixture. In order to pick the right housing, you have also to differentiate IC rated housings and Non-IC rated housings. IC is short for insulation contact, thus you may have guessed what they mean literally: IC rated housing means the fixture can come in direct contact with the insulation while its opposite means the fixture should be kept at least 3 inches from the insulation at all times.
