After much contemplation, I had already come to the conclusion to install Halogen downlights in the new house when I came across your informative article in Lightingpro. One day when the choice has improved and the price is much better, I might look at LED’s.
In the meantime, would you make lamp/fitting recommendations please?
Looks like 12V lamp type with Redback transformers where I want real light (living/kitchen), (some gimble fittings);
Thinking of non-dimmable CFL’s for places where I just want some effect lights – outside under the eaves to light the wall; it’s a broad beam so gimble is not important;
Was thinking of a limited number of LEDS for “night” lights in halls and the like where they can be left on for extended periods.
