Dr.Z point to his favorite CFL

ZOinks! Its me, Dr. Z the fluorescent fanatic and terror of the tungsten! Compact Fluorescent are all the rage in the lighting world right now. But GadZooks! So many people still have questions on their application. Can you lick them? NO!! Can you use them in Lava Lamps? NO!  Can you use them in an enclosed light fixture??? Well yes.. but it depends. CFL’s can be used in enclosed fixtures as long the fixture is not recessed. If the enclosed fixture is recessed it will (ie a can light with a cover over the bulb) it will most likely create temperatures too high for the CFL to operate! Keep them cool but not to cool (more on that later)

Zoinks!
