Round two for the incandesant bulb

PostBy: samhill On: Sat Dec 14, 2013 9:53 am

Only problem I see is the new type won't keep the stoker warm & dry off season. The prices have come down a bit but still have a ways to go.

I am all for the more efficient bulbs but agree it should be a matter of individual choice.

Sam, sorry to start liberal bashing but this is just another wacko liberal idea to "save the planet" that was not well thought out and will have very serious unintended consequences.

The compact fluorescents all have mercury in them. When disposed of that mercury will leach into the ground and contaminate the ground water. That's not a theory, it's fact.

All of this tyrannical regulation is why I just bought a case of 60 Watt and 100 Watt bulbs from this place here. I refuse to have anyone tell me what to do in my own house. I HATE, I mean HATE compact fluorescent light bulbs. When I bought this house that's all that was in here. The first thing I did was to get rid of ALL of them.

Incandescent bulbs are great for heating boilers and furnaces in the off season,.....up to 90% of the electricity they consume produce heat and not light :roll:

CK, why not read the story? I know, I know everything is the fault of liberals & Obama. I must have been having a flash back & held a gun to the El-president's head while he signed.

That's fine, I don't care. I don't want to be ordered to do something against my will. I am well aware of all of these facts. I like standard bulbs and that's that. Why can't I decide for myself how to furnish my own home?

I don't like CFL bulbs either. The LEDs are a much better option, but are too pricey currently. I have converted much of my lighting over to LEDs, not because of the government, but because I personally like the advantages of LED lights. The most impressive light I have so far is a 100 watt equivalent LED flood light on the back of my house that uses 10 watts, turns on to full brightness instantly and it doesn't even get warm. Unfortunately the 100 watt equivalent LED incandescent replacement is way too much for me to try at the moment. I feel there is a huge future for LEDs and I am all for it, but issues like this it shouldn't be forced upon us. If the government truly wanted to help us they should focus on improving the benefits of energy efficient lighting so it's a more attractable "option"(lower prices). In my opinion the only light bulbs they should ban are those stupid CFLs, those are like the ethanol fuel of light bulbs :roll: .

Not being able to keep our boilers and furnaces dry in the summer is bad enough but for the love of God man,....Easy Bake Ovens!!! What will we do about Easy Bake Ovens?!!? Without incandescent bulbs, the Easy Bake Oven will be no more!!! :shock:

Don't panic Carbon, I heard we will still be able to get the bulbs from the same country that now makes the Easy Bake Ovens, they will just list them as baking elements & jack up the price a weeee bit. ;)

I use the CFLs.. They take a minute to brighten up when they're cold but other than that the light seems ok to me... I'd rather not be forced to use them, it should be choice :)

Unless LED's have made a quantum leap in the last year or so, they are complete crap. CFL's are garbage but at least they throw a little light. LED's only illuminate what they are directly pointed at and nothing more.
