Recessed Lighting


Curious if anyone can tell me the pros and cons between using a CFL in a line voltage recessed light or actually installing a fluorescent recessed light?

When comparing 5 line voltage vs. 5 fluorescent the fluorescent is about three times the cost. What is the difference in the end result?

Im trying to keep the heat output as low as possible for a small kitchen with low ceilings and the lower operating costs of fluorescent is appealing as well.

In my humble opinion I would install the regular old recessed cans with the cfl`s. as you stated cheaper up front, no special bulbs & the options to change technology in the future, im sure led lighting will be the way to go soon & will screw right in.
