CFL lightbulbs were mandated by government law but shouldn't old style light bulbs be replaced with
LED bulbs instead? When the law was made, LED's were extremely expensive but with mercury disposal problems and new tech, low price LED lamps that break the $10/lamp barrier - are you willing to forgo saving a buck or two in order to prevent environmental mercury poisoning?
I really like this question. I have some and some not. I do not think I have bought an old style in a couple of years. I did not like the "glare". So I put in dimmers, where appropriate.
Let me put it this way. If I end up doing something because it is government mandated ---- I have been asleep to the issue for years.
Whatever cost there is, is saved by the efficiency of the bulbs.
Thanks for doing an awareness forum.
I also like this question. I agree, LED's should be mandated. In my opinion, CFL bulbs actually do more damage than regular bulbs. LED's are expensive (for now) which is why not many buy in at the moment.
