More on Light Bulbs

I got a couple questions about my post on LED lightbulbs. While the LED bulbs are not ready for primetime, I have had good luck with these compact fluorescents from HDb. They fit a standard socket and provide a very warm light, almost a little too yellow. But certainly no hint of blue.

I also recently ordered from http://www.lumitroncop.com and from http://www.1000bulbs.com. I ordered compact fluorescents to replace r20s and r30s (spots), we’ll see how those work.

I was motivated to move to incandescent alternatives because my office at home is too hot between all the PCs and devices and lights. Now that some have worked, I am motivated to move the whole house over for the energy savings. The one application that I am stuck with incandescents is for lights on dimming circuits — fluorescents don’t like variable voltage.
