    need help picking garage lights


    so i need to get 7 fluorescent fixtures for my garage. the electrician suggested to simply rip out all existing regular recessed lights and replace them with fluorescent ones. i have narrowed my choice down to these two:

    RCS232RC:

    or RPW340E8:
    http://www.elitefixtures.com/product...ok/RPW340E8--/

    they are made by american fluorescent.

    also open to other suggestions. they need to be 4ft x 2 tube and mounted flush against the ceiling. oh.. and gotta look good :)

    I have a lift and 9' ceilings so I made all as flush as possible.

    Yan...where are you located?

    If you are located in an area where you might have cold temps then you need to make sure your lights can operate at cold temps without a blinking warm up period.

    Use mirrored finished reflectors if possible

    I have a small one car garage with two pairs of twin 8 foot fluorescent tubes. If you can install reflectors, find the mirrored finished type. You can never have enough light in a garage.N Joe
