Saving energy -new tech light bulbs. My mistake..oops..
Tuesday, November 19, 2013
For the basement when I had more lights put in, I bought lightbulbs. I thought I was getting energy saving bulbs. I bought quite a few. Well they blew out fast! And they gave very little light.
Also, on the clearance rack at a local store were compact fluorescents. I bought a couple. Oops!
To explain things better, I came across something on facebook .I just read this:
"Forget compact fluorescents that everyone complains about, they were an interim technology.
Go straight to LED bulbs
they are now affordable, they last almost forever, they use a fraction of the electricity of incandescents. No mercury, either."
So now I understand better. I was lead astray by ads before! Darn!
I know some people who redid their whole house with the compact fluorescents! Thank goodness I did not do that!
