Lumatech Compact Fluorescent Replacements
Lumatech makes it easy to replace those old incandescent light bulbs with modern, efficient compact fluorescent lights. The secret is the compact size of Lumatech products. The Reflect-A-Star bulbs are between 6.18 in. and 6.89 in. long, so they fit most recessed down lights and flood lights. The Micro-Lamp fits table and floor lamps as well as other lighting fixtures with a standard socket. The globular diffuser improves appearance when the lamp is visible. Both of these product lines include a replaceable lamp that lasts about 10,000 hours, along with a reusable base that will operate for up to 150,000 hours. The newest Reflect-A-Star is an 18-watt model that features high power factor, low total harmonic distortion and a quick-start, no-flicker ballast. It also uses new convection cooling technology and a heat-dissipating Alzak® aluminum reflector.
