You're remodelling your home...and you've been
told that you need to replace your existing
fixtures because they don't meet current building
code requirements, such as Title 24 in
Most energy efficient lighting has a sleek
moderne look that is totally out of character with
most older homes. So what do you do??
The fixture above was retrofitted by the Gil
Stancourt Lighting Studio with a relatively new
advancement in compact fluorescent technology known
as GU-24. While standard incandescent fixtures will
accept a "screw in" compact fluorescent bulb, they
still do not meet the requirements for energy
Q: What's so special about the
fixture on the right?
A: It's a flush mount, two
light, pan fixture from the early 1900's
and its Energy
GU-24 is a bi-pin socket that only accepts a
bi-pin GU-24 compact fluorescent bulb and as such
meets the new building code requirements for energy
efficiency in light fixtures. It works in most
fixtures that have an Edison based socket.
The good news is that for about the same price you
would normally pay for regular rewiring of your
fixture, you can have it upgraded to the new GU-24
compact fluorescent tecnnology, thus meeting
current building code requirements.
Because GU-24 is energy efficient, you save
money on your electric bill, you do the right thing
for our planet and best of all, you get to keep the
existing fixtures you love so much!!
The Gil Stancourt Lighting Studio can
also build new and reproduction fixtures that suit
your needs with the new GU-24 compact fluorescent
