The builders and/or the previous owners of my house seemed to be in love with fluorescent light fixtures. Not even the modern high-frequency ballast ones, but the abhorrent ones with the magnetic ballasts that audibly hum.


Now the kitchen is filled with a nice light, not a sickly green glow that we had with the old one. Not only is it using less power, it’s also outputting around twice the light.

Now we can actually see what it is we’re cooking.

One down… four on the ground floor, a crap-ton in the basement (maybe six-ten), and another four or five in the barn to go.

Not only can’t I stand the quality of light, I can’t stand the constant 60-Hz hum that goes with it. (I’m also replacing the doorbell transformer since that asshole also hums)
