Can I use an E26 BR30 bulb in a recessed ceiling fixture (no covering)?
Can these bulbs be used in a typical recessed ceiling fixture? There is no cover, so the bulbs will not be fully enclosed. I really want to change the lighting and feeling down here in the basement and I'm hoping these full-spectrum lights will help.
We can confirm that the BR30 E26 LED bulbs generally fit into recessed ceiling light fixtures, so long as the fixture is designed to accommodate the E26 base.
Please note that these lights do require airflow for proper heat dissipation. So long as these bulbs are not being covered by an enclosure, they should not experience overheating.
