What is the distinguish between LED ceiling lights and LED downlights

With the improvement of people’s living standards, the requirements for lighting are also getting higher and higher. The lamps not only have the basic characteristics of lighting, but also need to be decorative, which can set off and improve the decoration taste of the bedroom. LED ceiling lights and LED downlights are indispensable lighting and decorations for home decoration. They are not only energy-saving and environmentally friendly, but also have softer light sources and colors. They are essential for building homes.

However, due to the large similarity in appearance between LED ceiling lights and LED downlights, many people may not be able to distinguish.They don’t know what the difference between the two types of lamps is, where to apply them to the home, and what the application effect is. Today, MingHao Lighting will explain the difference between these two types and the different functions.

Simply put, the LED downlight is a type of light that has a more concentrated light than an ordinary lamp. It is generally used for ordinary lighting or auxiliary lighting; The LED ceiling light is a highly concentrated lamp that emits light with a specific target. Mainly used for special lighting, such as emphasizing a place that is very tasteful or very innovative.

We distinguish LED ceiling lights and LED downlights from the following aspects.

  1. From the price point of view, the price of the LED downlight of the same grade is higher than that of the LED ceiling light.

LED downlights generally have three types: large, medium and small. Take LED downlights produced by MingHao Lighting as an example. 3*2W belongs to small downlights, 6*2W and 9*2W belong to medium downlights, and 12*2W belongs to Large downlights.The prices of the three models are different. This difference is not mainly reflected in the size of the product, but by the quality of the LED and the characteristics of the product.LED downlights require power, while LED ceiling lights do not require a power supply and are more convenient to use, so the price of LED ceiling lights will be lower.

  1. From the perspective of light source, LED ceiling light and LED downlight use LED asthe light source. LED has the characteristics of energy conservation and environmental protection, and is the most popular light source at this stage.

LED downlight light source effect is mostly astigmatism, the brightness can be laid. The astigmatism effect is generally 120 degrees; the LED ceiling light source is generally concentrated, and the concentrating effect is 30-60 degrees. The embedded LED ceiling light can generally adjust the angle of the light source by 30 degrees, and the angle of the downlight source cannot be adjusted.

The LED downlight has better brightness and can be used directly as a substitute for ordinary lighting; The LED ceiling light may have a better effect as a decoration or embellishment. It is richer in color and more concentrated. In addition, it also has an emphasis and prominence on objects.

  1. The application position of LED ceiling light and LED down light is different.

The LED ceiling light general with a transformer, but also without a transformer.The built-in LED ceiling lights can be mounted in the ceiling. The LED ceiling lights are mainly used for places that need to be emphasized or expressed, such as video walls, paintings, ornaments, etc., which can be used to enhance the effect.

LED downlights are generally installed in the ceiling, and the general ceiling needs to be installed above 150mm. Of course, the downlights are also external. It is a good choice to install a downlight in the area without a ceiling or chandelier, and the light is softer than the LED ceiling light.

Both the embedded LED downlights and the LED ceiling lights have open hole sizes, and the LED ceiling light open hole size is generally smaller than the downlight. In other word, the lamp holder of the LED downlight is larger than the LED ceiling light.

In general, LED downlights have more lighting effects. Therefore, there are many installations in the corridor aisle; the LED ceiling light concentrating effect plays a key role in lighting, and is mostly used for ceilings,background walls and shop key lighting.

When consumers buy LED ceiling lights or LED downlights as decorations, they must understand their purpose. Clearly know where to put them to decorate, so that you can choose the right product to buy.
