Full Spectrum and Flicker-free LED Recessed Lights
It has been recommended that the recessed lights in my autistic son’s basement bedroom with a low ceiling be full spectrum non flicker. What would you recommend? I find LED lights generally extremely bright. Also, I’ve read that the flicker has more to do with the electricity going to the lights rather than the bulb. Should I change the very old dimmer switch?
Though we would usually recommend our BR30 products for your recessed lighting, (such as the 3000K Ultra High 95 CRI E26 BR30 LED Bulb for Home & Residential product) these items are unfortunately not flicker-free. As such, these products might not be a good fit for the installation.
I ordered 6 x CENTRIC HOME™ Full Spectrum Flicker-Free A19 10W LED Bulbs (2700K). It says they are not suitable for enclosed fixtures. Would they be okay for semi-enclosed? I have a couple standing lights with 3 x cones that house the bulbs. I also have the cone desk lamps.
We're happy to confirm that most semi-enclosed fixtures should be safe to use, so long as there is adequate venting for heat dissipation.
For context, unless a fixture has a way of easily dispersing the heat generated by the bulbs, the hardware within the bulbs can overheat and cause the product to encounter errors.
