Creating a better future
When I moved into my house 10 months ago, I replaced all the halogen down lights with 11W CFLs in a GU10 fitting. Was happy with the results, but the CFLs has a long warm up time. Recently bought 5W LED lights with a GU10 fitting. These are brighter than the CFLs, have no warm up time and a 50,000 hour life. The cool white light works well in the kitchen. They cost $50 each, but will work out cheaper than CFLs in the long run. So I feel I have the perferct lighting solution now.
There are lots of good options for replacing energy guzzling halogens.
