Can LED bulbs be used with these fixtures?
Asked by: Zoolander
Absolutely. I used 9W LED bulbs for mine along with a Lutron LED/CFL dimmer switch. Be sure to get the proper switch that corresponds to the type of bulbs you'll use in the fixtures...

6 in. Aluminum Recessed Lighting New Construction IC Air-Tite Housing (6-Pack) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this 6-pack case in October 2016. I'm a DIYer and purchased these to use during a pretty... I bought this 6-pack case in October 2016. I'm a DIYer and purchased these to use during a pretty extensive bathroom renovation, installed in an attic above the master batch. While I've had experience with recessed lights in the past, these are particularly great and simple to use. The quick connect electrical connections were particularly awesome (I uploaded a picture showing it as it comes with the product). Simply snap the wire connections into place and BAM, onto the next one. I definitely prefer these connections to having to use wire nuts, which I often have to do with other fixtures because they come with just filament wire to connect to your load wires. The junction box attached to the housing has two punchouts on either side and three on top, which gives you plenty of options for running wiring. I happened to be running 12-gauge wire in my project, and they were plenty wide to accommodate. Since this housing was being put into my attic, I needed it to be IC-rated to enable it to directly touch insulation, and this fit the bill nicely. They're also "air-tite," which I believe just refers to the small foam seal that surrounds the light opening to stop air movement between non-insulated spaces and your living space (yay for energy efficiency!). Also, according to specifications, the light is suitable for use in damp locations, such as over showers or in your bathroom, but that's also largely dependent upon what kind of light fixture you install into the housing. I installed these on a 20-amp circuit using 12-gauge wire and a dimmer switch. The dimmer operates them perfectly. Installation is pretty straightforward--cut a circle in your drywall slightly larger then the opening of the light, then stretch out the bar hangers flush with your joists and nail them into place. I encountered some issue with the nails supplied in the bar hangers where a lot of them would bend (I swear I know how to use a hammer properly!), but they still sit in place just fine and there are other pre-made holes in the bar hangers that you could use other nails/screws if you're worried about it. All-in-all, I consider this a definitive buy. IC-rating, air-tight housing, and easy installation is the name of the game. A word of caution if you're remodeling, however, is to check how much space you have to install them in before buying (they take up quite a bit of space).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trusted, Tried and True The design and construction of the HALO H71CAT met all my needs. I've used it several times in the past and just bought a Six-Pack to do a workshop in my garage. The quick connectors inside the housing made my job very easy. Good Design, reliable and easy to use. I won't use any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Halo recessed cans I absolutely recommend halo brand recessed cans to all contractors. Installation is fast and easy. I have never encountered any problems with this brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to install! I'm replacing the recessed lighting in my house because the fixtures installed by the previous owner are not insulation rated or air tight. Because I have an attic, I can use these new construction lights. These fixtures are great because they come not only with the nails already attached, the electrical jbox already has the push in connectors attached. Buying six at a time makes this a product very affordable.
