Ten years ago I had 4" Halo recessed fixtures installed in my kitchen.
The trim kits are part #993W, featuring a white Coilex baffle and
white metal trim ring. I've used 55W halogen PARs in these fixtures.
The metal trim ring has yellowed significantly in comparison to both
the interior Coilex and my freshly painted white ceiling. Halo
replacements are out of my budget ($30+/- each and I need 9),
especially if I'm only going to get ten years out of them before
they're yellowed again. Reflector styles are a bit cheaper ($25) but I
still have the white trim issue. (Thought maybe these would throw more
light and I could get away with a lesser wattage, too?) There are some
other brands out there that are under $10 each but I'm uncertain about
compatibility with the Halo fixture.
I've considered painting the metal trim rings but am concerned paint
would not withstand the heat well.
Anybody else ever dealt with this issue? Is it just to be expected?
