3 Types of LED Under Cabinet Lighting

When the Fluorescent lighting changed to Halogen, there were a lot of problems as the Halogen loads drew way more amperage than the fluorescent. Now with the move to LED, that is no longer an issue. In addition, the LED fixtures draw much less power than either Fluorescent or Halogen. So there are three types of LED lighting:

Enclosed LED Fixtures

An enclosed fixture is a good choice if you want your under-cabinet lighting to match the rest of your decor while providing illumination. An enclosed LED fixture won’t take up much room or intrude on your countertop space.

Our team can remodel enclosed LED fixtures relatively quickly, depending on the backsplash. If the backsplash is tile or some other surface that can be cut, an outlet above the countertop can be changed to a switch. The outlet and the power can be fished from the new switch location to the new fixture.

LED Strip Lights

If you’re looking for a simple way to add under-cabinet lighting to your kitchen, you should consider installing LED strips. These strips are available in a wide range of colors and styles and can be installed practically anywhere under your cabinets where there is suitable space. In addition, they can be turned on or off from any convenient location and can be dimmed and adjusted to suit the amount of light needed.

They are an inexpensive and easy way to add a touch of elegance to your kitchen without spending a lot of money – plus, they last for years, so there’s no need to worry about replacing them every few months.

LED Puck Lights

There are many options available when it comes to under-cabinet lighting. A good choice is the LED puck lights. These lights provide a significant amount of light underneath your cabinets and are easy to install.

There are many different types of LED puck lights, so you can find one that fits your needs. Some models are fitted underneath cabinets, while others work with recessed lighting. Whatever type you choose, you’ll be able to achieve the look you want.

In addition to providing great lighting, LED puck lights can also help protect your cabinets from damage. The LEDs inside these lights are incredibly durable, so they can withstand bumps and shocks without breaking. In addition, they are energy-efficient and produce very little heat, so they won’t damage the surfaces on which they sit.

LED puck lights are a third type of fixture that can easily replace existing halogen puck lights. Most puck light manufacturers make a direct replacement. The old wiring can be used, and the halogen transformer can be replaced with a new LED driver. The old wires are almost always large enough to handle the new lighter LED load.
