How do I install under cabinet linear lighting?

Posted: February 18th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , | 1 Comment »

I am installing under cabinet linear lighting under my kitchen cabinets (power supply is 150W and I am using 12, 10W bulbs. The issue is the low voltage wire is not supposed to go in the walls. My cabinets split at a window and I would like to avoid seeing the wire going around the window on the outside. I bought connectors which change high voltage to the low voltage wire. The store where I bought the product refused to go into specifics about how to install (probably shouldn’t have bought it there, but it sounded easy enough). I planned on putting the transformer in the basement and running three high voltage wires to the three areas under the cabinets and using the high to low voltage connectors under the cabinet. I opened the transformer and found two terminals, one for the power in and one for the low voltage wire out. Do I use regular romex to connect to the low voltage side (power out) so I can run it through the floor and through the walls then convert to low voltage wire at the cabinet? Also, the low voltage wire says 10 AWG does this mean that I need to use 10 gauge wire and a 30AMP fuse? That seems like overkill. Any help is appreciated.

            I bought an unfinished house and I need to install under cabinet lighting. The house builder allowed for this and there is romex wiring coming out under each cabinet and a wall switch in place to turn them on and off. 1. What would be the best type of lighting to use that could be hard wired? 2. I understand electrical very well, but what is the correct way to do the wire connections? Do I need to install a box for the connections? Thanks.

              I am going to buy San Yang Pai Under Cabinet Range Hood, but not sure which model is more suitable for me. I am Chinese and cook a lot. So I would prefer the one more powerful (and hopefully it is not too noisy). I am comparing model SYP-68 and CY-998, or any other better option. Please advise if you have such expertise. Thanks!
