Unsafe downlights installed can be extremely dangerous. With many Halogen downlights being replaced with LED’s now is a perfect time to set recessed lighting straight. The major reason why improperly installed Downlights are unsafe is that they upset the building envelope (Home air tightness and Insulation consistency).
This is because they exist in two completely different parts of the home:
- the roof area, and
- the living area
This exposes these electrical devices to potentially extremely dangerous situations, while at the same time contributing to significant energy losses for heating and cooling…
Examples of unsafe downlights installed:
