"Faux" fixture mimics recessed lighting

MaxLite's new "Faux Can" is a fixture that looks like a recessed light but which uses a 25-watt CFL bulb to mimic a 75-watt traditional fixture, according to inventor and MaxLite vp David Shiller. Other green features: it doesn't punch a hole through the ceiling, for better HVAC efficiency, and it requires fewer materials compared with traditional recessed light.

The product has garnered several awards, and is on sale at 250 Home Depots.
