Similar to "remodel" accessed lighting housings, retrofit recessed lights can be easily installed with a minimum of ceiling tear-out and drywall patching. Using techniques common to most applications, wiring can be "fished" through narrow, carefully selected slots in the ceiling. While it's preferable to mount recessed lighting housings to ceiling joists, retrofit can housings are designed to be supported by ceiling drywall. On some retrofit units, manufacturers have provided stencil templates to facilitate the process of outlining and removing ceiling material to install housings. Note that if the retrofit involves the conversion from line voltage to low voltage fixtures, don't forget to purchase the transformers that step down voltage from the standard 120 volts to 12 to take advantage of lower energy consumptions costs.
