What is a remodel light fixture?

Remodel recessed housings are designed to work with your existing roof. There is an immense variety of housing options to suit a wide range of ceiling conditions, lighting effects and functions, and molding sizes. The molding is the visible part of the luminaire. The recessed lights are manufactured with two different support means.

Typically, the housing of a remodeling lamp is held by pushing metal clips through the housing to the top of the ceiling, drywall, or drywall. Newly built luminaires are fastened by screwing or nailing the luminaire frame to the ceiling beams. If you can't get above the ceiling to do the wiring, you'll probably have to use a remodeling device. But if you have access to a space above the ceiling where the luminaire will be located, you can install newly built recessed lights in the existing ceiling.

The advantages of doing this include that newly-built luminaires are usually less expensive and have a larger selection of moldings than remodeling luminaires. In the case of remodeled recessed lighting, the installation is carried out by cutting a hole in the ceiling and fixing the appliance housing to the hole. Before comparing remodeled housings with newly built ones, it is useful to familiarize yourself with the different parts of the recessed luminaire itself.
