CFL Bulbs Not For High Temps

Now that we've started using compact fluorescent lamps, or CFLs, there are some things we need to keep in mind when using them.  Don't use them in things that will cause vibrations such as garage door openers and ceiling fans.  They also can be used in enclosed fixtures as long as it is not reces- sed.

Even though they use less energy than the classic incandescent bulbs, the CFLs are not safe in ex- treme temperatures.  When replacing your appliance lights, always replace with bulbs designed for that appliance.  The 40 watt appliance lights are exempt from federal lighting efficiency standards.  So, they are here to stay.
