Question Fluorescent lights and cold

I would like to put a fluorescent light above my workbench in the garage (unheated). Are all fluorescent lights sensitive to the cold? I am in Wisconsin and there may be times when I would like to have some extra light in the middle of winter. I thought a fluorescent fixture would be the best way to go but I don't know what temperature range the lights will be able to operate.

Any insight or suggestions are appreciated.

A rapid start flourescent fixture will start giving you lighting trouble about 45 degrees.

If you want to install a flourescent light fixture in cold settings try a high output flouresent fixture. It can take sub zero temperatures.

Hope this helps
