Just run an extension cord up the wall and over the ceiling. Then, attach a cheap power strip.I need to go into the attic over the garage to adjust modify some wiring before I can install them. I need to replace an existing electrical round box with something that will hold a 4 outlets, one set a GFCI. Then I need to add another box on the ceiling closer to the door. It's been way too hot to work in the attic, which is why they're waiting.
What are the temperature and CRO on those?I did finally get the fixtures installed in my garage after sitting on them for over a year. All 18500 lumens of LED lighting got put up back in October. It took about 10 hours to do all the necessary modifications, wiring, installation, and cleanup.
The switch on the wall can control power to all of them. The 4 lights over the cars also have pull chains on them so they can be powered off even when the wall switch on since most of the time I don't need all that light when I step out there for a minute to put something in the trash or recycling bins. It's a big upgrade from the single bare 60W incandescent bulb that was on the ceiling before.
They're listed at 4000k. I can't find the CRI listed anymore. When I originally researched them I believe it was listed as >80. FWIW, the CRI of most fluorescent tubes isn't any better.What are the temperature and CRO on those?
My old T12 lights were 5000K and 92CRI then the T8 type were 90 CRI IIRC.They're listed at 4000k. I can't find the CRI listed anymore. When I originally researched them I believe it was listed as >80. FWIW, the CRI of most fluorescent tubes isn't any better.
Also, I got more of them around before Christmas to hang from the ceiling in the basement when they were on sale for $20. I have to do more more electrical work to make that happen though since I need to put in electrical boxes with outlets with GFCI protection in the ceiling tied to the existing wall switch. At least in the basement the ceiling is totally open so it should be easier than the garage to work on.
What do you use to replace nicely colored fluorescent fixtures that are no longer supported? I don't trust many of the no-CRI LEDs.Well, I did say most. I didn't say all. I'm well aware that you can buy high CRI fluorescent lighting. It's just that the typical fluorescent lighting you encounter isn't it.
