Avian Full Spectrum E26 BR30 LED Bulb for Birds
Do these work in a recessed lighting fixture?
We can confirm that our BR30 lightbulbs are rated for recessed lighting fixtures.
I have an aviary with 3 recessed cans in the ceiling. Would 3 of these bulbs create too much light? These fixtures are currently on a dimmable timer.
As a starting point, it might be helpful to compare the lumen output of our lights against the output of the lightbulbs currently installed in the recessed ceiling fixtures.
As each of our Avian Full Spectrum E26 BR30 LED Bulb for Birds provide 800 lumens (60W equivalent), three units would provide a total of 2400 lumens. So long as this lumen output does not greatly exceed the lights currently installed, we would not expect there to be issued with glare or over-illumination.
You may also be interested in trying our Lumen Estimation Calculator, which provides a lumen target based on the dimensions of an installation area. This tool will also provide recommendations for item quantities to meet the lumen targets, as well.
