Under my kitchen cabinets I currently have 120 volt AC florescent lighting. I want to replace these lights with brighter LED strip lighting, which typically is run using 24v DC current.
The lights currently are turned on using a central single-pole switch. I want to keep the single switch where it is and I don't need a dimmer. My six cabinets sit to the right, left and across the room from the switch.
Under each cabinet there is a place where the electrical wire comes out of the wall and connects to the lighting fixture.
One way to do replace the current lights with LED lights and keep the same On/Off switch, is to put a 24v transformer at the point where the current 120v wire comes out of the wall, for each cabinet, but that is six transformers and moderately expensive.
What is the right way to do this? Do I need to rewire? Or for instance, if I want to use a single 120v to 24v transformer, probably near the current light switch, can I use my current wire to run the 24v DC?
