New home what kind of lighting tech should i do?

Liberty2August 30, 2012

Building a new home and my builder says to stay with standard high hats and he will install the LED. Says more flexible with choice and change and best bang for the buck. am i making a mistake. LED appears to be expense for LED fixture when can you install your own in standard? Whats does everyone recommend for a new build, want the best bang for the buck.

thanks all.

Are you in California? If so, your choices will be complicated by having to comply with Title 24.

I would consider going with something like Lutron RadioRA2 for controls.

There is a long thread in this forum on recessed lighting with LEDs. Have you seen it?

Here is a link that might be useful: recessed cans for LEDs discussion
