Default Need help with Compact Fluorescent


Need help with Compact Fluorescent
California Home

Our vanity bathroom has a 26W Nutone Compact Fluorescent 2 pin
light / with fan - ceiling light.
( the light appears to be about 9 inches long)

It is so dark with this light in the bathroom. I am desperately
trying to get a brighter light...I searched all over the internet.
Went to Home Depot etc. No luck.
Not sure why they do not make brighter lights for 2 pin Compact
Fluorescents.

Any suggestions..where I can a brighter 2 pin Compact Fluorescent
light.


FYI....I am not handy.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks
Anna

Leave the cover off the light fixture.

You will have to replace the ballast too. This will cost more than buying a
new larger light fixture.

If that is your only light add another one, over the mirror is a good
idea, 26w is all that unit takes
