The efficiency of the T9 fluorescent lamp drops as much as 40%. In addition to poor performance in colder temperature, the T9 tube, mounted to the door hinge area suffers up to 40% wasted light because the light is not being directed on the merchandise in the case. Fluorescent lamps also produce heat that freezer compressors need to cool, running more often and drawing more power.
