asked for cree, builder installed sylvania led
Hi - I am building a new house. So all new wiring and electrical. A long time ago, I specified that in certain areas I wanted the CREE LR6. For cost reasons, couldn't do it everywhere. I am not an electrician, so I simply mentioned that because we are starting new, I did not want retrofit wiring - that we should do the wiring based on the fact that we are installing new LED. I am a bit out of my depth here, but thought that perhaps the set up is different if you are retrofitting versus building new?
Anyway, I was very disappointed to stop by the job site today and see that they were in the process of installing Sylvania LED kits. The box says 'Sylvania ULTRA LED 6" recessed kit". Wide flood replacement. Dimmable. 3000K. Although the lights were purchased at a local big box store, here is the light online: http://www.polar-ray.com/Sylvania-RT6-_p_272.html
I think the ones that have been installed look good, but I specifically asked for the CREE LR6. Are the Sylvania ones as good? Should I have them switch them out for CREE?
My other concern is that is that the wiring is the retrofit type, based on the fact that these seem to be retrofit lights - but I am getting a bit out of my depth of understanding.
Any advice or perspective would be welcome.
