Honest opinions about how to buy Appliances and Lighting.

Thursday, February 12, 2009


I have been writing about LED lighting since we started the ole blog over 2 years ago. For review, LED, is 5 to 7 times more efficient than incandescent, lasts 20 years and does not emit heat, which saves HVAC costs.

Now the problems:

Problem 1: They cannot seem to manufacture LED so the color is white.

That issue has been rectified, but only by a few brands, most notably Cree, Juno and Jesco.

Problem 2: For many of the undercabinet systems, you need a "driver" or transformer. You still actually need this in many low voltage applications, but electricians hate the extra wiring.

Have a look at this:

The new Juno undercabinet...white and driverless. Available middle of February 2009.

    Try it with me.....under CABINET light. under CABINET light. These lights actually go OVER the counter. I would expect you guys to use the proper name for your products and unless you are installing them inside a base cabinet the are NOT under COUNTER lights.

  2. Is this the part when I say thank you for your comments?
