    We use dimmable LEDs in almost every fixture. Most expensive, and we'll probably never realize a cost savings, but then again, we're not tracking the costs either.

    Interesting that when I saw some more comments about this, I read another article by the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) which goes into great detail about the detrimental effects of LEDs. And apparently, "compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) are far worse".
    Also, "Children are at high risk for damage from LEDs due to the transparency of the lenses in their eyes".

    If you must have LED lights, look for ones with high CRI numbers. In the 90's is best to reduce the potential damage to the eyes.
