Can I use an LED bulb in a CFL fixture?

While LED lighting used in enclosed fixtures may bring up some potential heating problems, this is nothing compared to the energy inefficiency of CFLs and incandescent light bulbs. Unfortunately, due to the heat entrapment of enclosed fixtures, not all LED light bulbs can be used.
