  •  I put cans in new kitchen. (7+ / 0-)

    Planning on using PAR 30, but price is still 45-50 $$$ x 4 cans, waiting for price to come down some plus LED  technology to advance more before I plunk down $200. For 4 bulbs. I have one installed, but it doesn't spread the light enough, I need at least 40 degrees to light the room, and light color in the 3000 range. So far I'm not finding any that fill those needs.

      I've got 9 cans.  

      Someday, though ...

      •  Cree's can dropped to $25 each at Home Depot (5+ / 0-)

        In December here in Central Ohio. The guy at the store said the power company (AEP) was subsidizing.

        So I replaced a bunch of cans and was going to finish up in January, but apparently the subsidy ended on cans and the price is now $35.

        But meanwhile the cost of their screw in 60 watt equivalent LEDs dropped to $15.  So I bough a bunch of those.

        I should have just waited!   The cans are very easy to install, nothing beats just screwing in a light bulb. And at $15, LED is a no brainier.
