For a few years I was using a 300 watt Halogen light in the garage / shop. Yesterday I replaced it with a 2 ft LED fixture. It's quite a bit brighter, and should use up less electricity. I'm thinking about moving the light up a little higher just to get it just a little more out of view because it is so blindingly bright, but first I want to see how hot the fixture gets after it has been on for a while, so I can determine how close I can get it to the rafters.

I'm replacing my fluorescent fixtures with LED's as the old ones go bad. So far I've noticed the new LED fixtures run cooler than the previous ones.

Most of the energy used by filament type lamps is converted to heat and dissipated into the air. The LEDs use so little power they give off very little heat. while the fixtures (and lamps) do get a little warm...it's not much.

I contacted the company, and I was told that there are no restrictions on installation. The lowest profile mounting bracket is about is about 1.5”, and that I can get as close to the rafters as I'd like.
