Will ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs fit into my existing fixtures? Follow

ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs can replace regular, incandescent bulbs in almost any fixture. They come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes including globe lamps for your bathroom vanity, chandelier bulbs, lamps for recessed downlights (now commonly found in kitchens, hallways, and more), and larger or more compact standard light bulbs.

Check the packaging of the CFL to ensure that it may be used in an entirely enclosed fixture. Additionally, some ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs are specifically designed to provide dimming and 3-way functionality -- these options will be identified on the products' packaging.
