I started replacing a lot of flourescents with 6 inch can lights fitted with LED bulbs.
Search for ECO-575L. Prices can vary quite a bit, but the 6 inch can fixtures are cheap and these go right into a standard Halo 6 inch can.

There’s an expense involved to be sure, but if you are replacing ballasts and/or fixtures, it’s worth a look. I just redid my hole kitchen with them. I’ve been putting them in the basement, the garage, the shop. They start immediately when it’s cold (it gets cold here). They are cheap cheap cheap to run. They won’t burn out for about 20 years hehehe. And I like the LIGHT better than any of the flourescents. It’s more natural. Kinda like working outside.

Just thought I’d toss it out there. This brand is made by Cree Lighting and Cree does LED lighting right. (No I have absolutely no connection to the company)
