step15
July 23, 2013
My dining / living room is 36x 16 . 10 ft high ceilings. We are putting in spotlights around the room. Having a hard time deciding between 4" and 5" size of spotlights. Whats your opinion on the right size?

LED bulbs actually put out enough heat to make them fail much earlier than advertised when put in a recess can. Are the cans going in an insulated attic or floor joists to a second floor? Some led bulbs say not to put them in an airtight can in insulation. For this reason, bigger is better for all LEDs to have room to dissipate heat. Also, it would be easier to retrofit the sheetrock ring on a 5" can for a true led unless these are remodel cans to begin with.
