Led or Halogen if price is the same
We are thinking of getting 3 Mini Echo Pendants made by Tech Lighting for our kitchen.
We have an option to choose Led or Halogen bulb.
Price for Halogen or Led is the same. The difference is that Led light will require an adapter so we are not sure how it will look and no local retailier carries these ligths.
We don't know the brand of the led bulb that is shipped with the light.
Second concern is I have is about dimmer. We are considering using Crestron Dimmer for most of the lights in our kitchen the Crestron does not mention TechLighting.
Here what they say about the kind of dimming they can do.
The CLS-C6EX features six channels of dimming for LED*, incandescent, magnetic low-voltage, neon/cold cathode, and 2-wire dimmable fluorescent loads. On/off switching of many non-dimmable lighting loads is also possible. Each channel will handle up to 800 watts individually, with a total rating of 1920 watts for the complete unit.
Let us know if you have any advice for us. We really like the low power usage for Led but are having trouble in spending $1000 for 3 lights that might not be dimmable.
