Will heat crack a CFL used over a stove? #construction #green

Good question! If the CFL is covered by a lens it should be okay. However, the majority of CFLs are to be installed in the vertical position not the horizontal position.

Consider buying a LED it’s so much better and the price is coming down too!!!
