led lights question - ac/dc at every socket?
Some time ago I asked our electrician to make our recessed "highlights" as LEDs (about 50 total throughout the house). The time has now come to order the actual parts, and I'm surprised, that he is saying, I must order the LR6C, which are quite expensive.
It appears, the price is due to the fact, that each of these units has its own AC-to-DC converter built-in. This may make sense for a retrofit, but this same electrician was rewiring the whole house Â so why not install a single converter somewhere instead of solving the problem of conversion (and the accompanying heat-dissipation) at each of the 50 locations?
It may be too late for that now (the sheetrock is up and being painted already), but if it is not, what are my options? Are there off-the-shelf LED-lighting products, where the conversion is done in a single location per room (or per floor or per house) and then simple and cheap bulbs wired to that?
