Light Bulb Selection
The type of light bulb is a major factor in selecting
an under cabinet light:
Fluorescent, halogen, and xenon are the main choices of light
bulbs. Each type has there advantages and disadvantages.
Fluorescent bulbs are the most energy efficient - give out the
most light per watt. However, the color rendering of fluorescents
are not good.
Halogen bulbs have good color rendering (warm tones), but are
more expensive, only last 2000 hours, and are hotter in temperature.
Xenon bulbs also have high color rendering, last between
5000-10000 hours, and are not as hot as halogens.
