Undercabinet lighting help please. LED specifics:
We are in the midst of our kitchen remodel (eg electrician is in this week working on all of it and I didn't know the undercab question was such a big deal)
I have spent some hours here reading all the posts on the topic, but still have some queries (please correct me if I am wrong on any of this)
My initial conclusions are:
Halogen: too hot
Xenon: nice light, more efficient, but maybe still too hot
Fluorescent: energy efficient (our KD likes them, our general contractor hates them, dh must have energy efficiency)
LED: pricey but energy efficient, seems to satisfy all of us
So I am pretty much set on LED and had a few questions:
1) Are LED undercab lights high or low voltage? this is the only question the electrician wants answered today (high or low, ma'am?).
2) Are LED bright enough for task lighting?
3) I do not need dimmers, but would not mind a high or low switch on each, is this possible? I was planning to put half of them on one wall switch the other half on another (I'd put them all together, but likely to prep only on one side of the kitchen).
4) Which brand, have people been happy with? What specs (e.g. lumens etc) should I look for.
