Abstract

Compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) retrofit kits can replace incandescent downlights, providing significant savings in reduced energy use and relamping frequency. This Snapshot details the relighting of a public library's circulation desk with a new 20-W CFL retrofit kit that gives the staff the illuminance they need without distracting glare. Another benefit of the new system is that it does not produce excessive heat on the circulation desk as the old incandescents did.
