My wive and I are installing new kitchen cabinets and plan to have under cabinet lights on the wall cabinets. We are interested in the “linear” systems that have lamp holders mounted on special wire every 4 to 6 inches because of the continous lighting and they are dimmable.
We would like to know the pros and cons of 12 v vrs. 24 v systems, especially on energy usage. Also, the pros and cons for the low voltage systems in general. We have heard that the 24v system is better for runs of 15 ft or longer to avoid voltage drop at the ends. Ours is only 7ft.
Can anyone shed some “light” on this? 🙂
