Thoughts on Fluorescent Recessed Lighting
I'm thinking of installing CFC recessed lighting in my basement ceiling to replace and add to some incandescent cans there now. My reason for CFC are:
1) To reduce the heat emanating from the lamps (low ceiling)
2) To allow for additional cans on the same circuit while staying under the maximuma wattage for the circuit and a dimmer
I'd be curious to hear any thoughts on this plan:
1) Are there downsides to CFC that i'm overlooking? (quality of light, suitability for recessed cans, etc.)
2) Am I correct that installing the CFC recessed lighting (even if I use 23W) will allow me to install a greater number of fixtures AND use a dimmer without running into any major issues? I'm looking to install between 8 and 12 fixtures in total.
The circuit is 10amps or 15amps (I can't recall at the moment) and is dedicated.
Thanks in advance,
