LED lighting

I’ve recently purchased some LED lighting to see how it is. LED lights are more energy efficient and last much longer than CLF lights. That also don’t contain mercury and are very durable. I went with four of these


I have them installed in overhead recessed light fixtures. They seem to be ideal for this type of use because they are highly directional. The light seems to be on par with CLF but not as “warm” as incandescent. They work with a dimmer switch, though at certain levels they do flicker. It’s not a problem it happens at a predictable level that I just avoid. Pricewise they are very expensive. But I do expect them to pay for themselves in the long term in terms of energy savings and that they should last a very long time. Also I dropped one once and it didn’t break. I can’t figure out where they are made, they actually don’t say. The price should keep going down as more people buy them, but I’m ok with being an early adopter. Yeah energy efficiency!
