We had a home where the average electricity bill was $250.00 per month. Then we switched all the light bulbs to LED's and our first new Bill with LED's was $44.00 And that's no joke. But you have to switch them all out. These bulbs were 6W to 12 watts and the house cooled down as well, so the AC was used less. LED bulbs are 10% heat and 90% light. vs CFL's ...

Well, turns out that repeated slamming of the front entry door isn't good for many things, electrical connections included. I finally had a chance to open the outdoor sconce yesterday and saw that one of the neutral white wires had sort of slipped out of its wirenut, and wasn't holding on very well to the others. I don't know why this resulted in lower ...

We can determine by the specs you gave that the transformer is indeed AC Electronic Transformer for LV-Halogen Lamps PRI: 220-240V ~50Hz 0.27A SEC: 11.5V~ 10-60W λ=0.99 The ~ sign indicates alternating current. Also, the minimum load is indicated as 10W. This is important when using LEDs When all four LEDs were burning, and when only three were ...

You MUST use with Low Voltage LED that has MR16 base (two thin pins) special designed LED DC Driver. The other way just to rewire (remove the transformer for the Halogen lamps and using the mains supply side connect the GU10 (two thick pins ) socket. After this you can use LED that has GU10 base. Those LED with GU10 base have build in driver and designed to ...

The way to adjust my dimmer was very unintuitive, but it allowed me to crank it down to about 10%, where it shipped with a minimum brightness of about 50% Lutron has a nice video on their dimmer site that shows how to make the adjustment. Other ...

Edit For some LED strips once you cut the strip that's it. That particular brand is linkable once it has been cut. It appears to be DC as opposed to AC so the link would require the correct polarity. Looking at the product page it does not appear to show any link connectors, rather just the live ends (the part that feeds from the transformer). But that ...
