This is where LEDs really become useful. We have a range of LED down lights or spotlights that are a viable alternative to halogen downlights.
Essentially you can go about LED recessed lights in a number of different ways;
- GU10 LED Bulb and a mains voltage downlight, this is the cheapest approach.
- A MR16 LED Bulb, a low voltage downlight and a seperate 12V LED driver,
- The most sophisticated solution:
A dedicated LED Downlight with a 240V feed and built in driver, buy the whole unit together and you get the benefit of a mains voltage connection but superior 12V LEDs which provide both warm white and extremely bright light at the same time. The added reliability means you tend to get a 5-7 year guarantee with this range of LED down lights.
