Modernaire owners: TKO question

Posted by cottonpenny (My Page) on

What color temperature are the halogen lights on the hood?

I'm getting under-cabinet lights and there's a choice of bright white or soft white. Are the Modernaire lights closer to incandescent or are they more daylight-y?

I've got 6 on my 42" & they are BRIGHT, dimmable though. I don't think soft white would apply here.

Thanks ratfinger! So they are more white than yellow and would match better w daylight balanced LCD ucls than ones meant to imitate incandescents?

Don't know if this will helop but it says on the bulb


And i think it also says "Industrial" they seem to be the maker

RE: Modernaire owners: TKO question

We have few ModernAire hoods in the store, I recently replaced a bulb with the following

Philips "Halogena" 50W Bright, White Light.

Brightness is 545 lumens.

Got these from Home Depot.
