AbstractCompact fluorescent lamps are used to replace in candescent lamps to aid in energy conservation incommercial and domestic lighting applications. In particular, they offer the benefits of much longer lifeand lower operating costs in a reasonably similar package.2 Some of the performance characteristicsfamiliar to residential users may differ for the newer lamp technology. Such characteristics includeresponse to ambient thermal conditions, sensitivity to lamp position, flicker, harmonics, etc. Of particularconcern is the response to ambient thermal conditions, since lamps are used in unconditioned spaces,such as garages, basements, barns, and similar spaces where they may be subjected to extremes intemperature, both hot and cold. While it is well known that fluorescent lamp performance is determined by the cold spot on the lamp and can be affected by the ambient temperature in the room,5 the extent towhich these findings, particularly for extreme in temperatures, apply to compact fluorescent lamp appli
