LED bulbs standard?

Just picked up the 17A, and am stoked! Quick question- are the standard Escape bulbs in the interior / exterior LED these days?

Thanks,

Dave

Yes, LED lighting is standard, and they are the warm lights, not the cold bluish lights, which I really like!

Hi Jim!

Your comment is interesting. I just looked at the one over the kitchen counter.

I wanted a different colour temp LED. Went to ETI and they replaced the whole fixture with a newer, better designed one. Did it in little time, at little expense.

Probably be simplest if ever needed to replace the fixture with a new led fixture with a push type bulb that can be easily changed. Not that expensive to buy the fixtures with bulbs.

I know! I wonder if replacing the whole fixture is the only way, as Glenn mentioned.

I did place a strip of foil to block some of the light from going right in my face when I try to look inside the upper cabinet. I hate being short!
