Best choice for LED lighting?
LEDs are solid state lighting and much like microchips advanced in efficiency/performance quite rapidly.
I am building a new home and would like any input from lighting experts – do you think traditional light sockets that work with screw-in LED lightbulbs are best because one can just get a new bulb as efficiency gains are made (plus on LED failure) or should I buy dedicated LED fixtures that must be completely replaced and cost more than the screw-in bulbs? I am assuming the dedicated fixtures may have better performance due to engineered reflectors or TIR lens but I am not sure if that’s a good enough reason to go that route with the drawbacks.
