    Have you switched over to the new light bulbs yet?

    I hear that the old light bulb (iridescent) to which we've become accustomed will be completely phased out this year. Have you switched over completely to the more energy efficient brands?

    Yes, we switched over a good while ago. They look funny but do save and last a very long time.

      You're on the ball, Faith Reaper. I have not yet made the complete switch. Thanks for answering.

    Not, yet. Most of my bulbs are CFLs and I still have a couple of incandescents in outdoor light fittings switched by PIR sensors. CFLs are unsuitable for this application because they take about 30 seconds to reach full brightness. LED lamps are still quite pricey but the cost is dropping all the time so I will start using them soon.

      Thanks for the correction, eugbug (duh), missed that. I, too, don't like that 30 second lull to reach full brightness. I need to start looking into the LED lamps, especially if price drops. Thanks for answering and informing.

      Just Googled it and actually there are such things as iridescent bulbs! They are quite "blingy" though and more suitable for decorating a Christmas tree than lighting a room!

    Happy New Year janshares, I'm using up the old ones that I've accumulated in recent years because they came as I paid electricity on several properties. For the last 2 years though I've tried out the new LEDs and they seem still to be burning. I don't remember replacing any yet. I stopped receiving bulbs from the light company so, I must purchase the new ones but I have enough bulbs to last the next 10 years. I still have yet to see if the LEDs are saving me more than the old ones. Thanks for raising the issue.

      Happy New Year word55. Wow, enough to last 10 years! You are set. Makes sense to use what you have first. Thanks for answering.

    No, not yet but I am actually working on that right now. I just improved the outdoors. By the way, in case you need assistance for granite countertop fabrication in Clearwater, this site might help you.
