Can I use a LED bulb in a Line Voltage Housing and Trim?

Yes, LED bulbs can be used in Line Voltage Housings and Trims. These types of bulbs are readily available in Par, R and A shaped bulbs. It’s important to note, that the shape of the bulb should be as close to the bulb specified by the manufacture as possible. For example, if the housing and trim are recommending a Par/R shaped bulb, the LED bulb should be in a Par/R shape. However due to the length and width of some bulbs, the light pattern given off by the bulb and the overall look, may not be what was originally intended.
