Track Lighting Explained
Track lighting is a lighting fixture with multiple lights placed on one track. Electricity courses through the track and powers each light head on the track. The light heads on the track are often adjustable and each can be pointed in different directions. Track lighting is very similar to recessed lighting. Both light rooms in similar ways and have a ton of options. The difference is how each is installed and displayed in a room.
While recessed lighting must be installed on ceiling joists, track lighting can be installed on existing electrical boxes or with manual plugs. Also, recessed lighting is hidden inside but track lighting is displayed outside of walls and ceilings. Track lighting is a more convenient, decorative and often less expensive option with the similar results to recessed lighting. Both can be used for task lighting, focused lighting, ambient lighting, outdoor landscape lighting and indoor display lighting, plus many other uses. A trusted electrician like Nipper Electric can help you choose which method and option works best for your home or office.
