Also the fans would need to be interlocked with the light switch so they would not run all the time. So you are wasting more ac to run the fans. I hope that Yoyizit can spit out some numbers as to what I am talking about. All I know is that it isn't cheap to run power supply's.


You do know we are talking residential?
I meant 450w power supply. 120vac/12vdc

How about using the vapour boots and installing the IC rated lights in them. Does that make them better? Thanks.

If you use the IC rated can do you still need to install those blue vapor boots? Thanks
