Future Proof House for LED - Line or Low Voltage
I am building a new house and as the prices of LEDs will be dropping in the next few years I am trying to decide what kind of lighting to put in now. I am trying to decide between line and low voltage recessed lights either gu10 or mr16. The line voltage housings are much less expensive, but it seem that the low voltage may have more bulb options.
My goal is within the next 2 years to replace all of the bulbs with LED bulbs. I have read the posts claiming that the 12v mr16 produces better light than the gu10, but I assume that all goes away when comparing LED bulbs since the LEDs are operating at about 3V.
The dimmers are also less expensive for line voltage. My concern is that there could be potential for problems for the 12V LED and the housing with dimmers. On the opposite side I think there will be more options for bulbs in the 12v mr16 form factor.
What do people think? What is the best housing to put in for LED down the road? These are all 3" or 4" housings.
