Help choose LED cans for new build... prices?
We are building a new home on the family farm and we are leaning towards LED can lights. I have read lots of great things about the Cree CR6. My electrician has not installed LED's before so I was wondering what the most economical way to install is... standard 6" cans with Cree CR6bulbs, Cree housings, Edison base cans and Edison Cree lamps? What dimmers do you recommend for these lights?
Are there good LED products out there for outdoor flood light use? I am thinking of all the places I do not want to change a light bulb for 10-20 yrs. :)
What type of dimmable UCL do you rec for kitchen?
I know that Maryland has a subsidy for LED lights at time of purchase. Is it worth it to drive up there to get some if we are having a large number of lights? The house is 5000 sq ft and we are planning around 80 recessed cans. When I add them up it seems unrealistic, but we want 4 cans in each BR along with central fixture. Cans lighting hallways and kitchen-living area, mudroom, office, laundry.
Any other advice gladly taken! Thanks in advance for your help!
