Re: How I Eliminated Over 2 kW of Lighting at Home -
"I'm using LEDs in stairways and such and they're excellent and worthwhile. Instant-on and fully-bright to make the family happy, plus low power consumption to make me happy. Plus, they won't die when flipped on and off 20 times a day! Good point about "instant-on" CFLs: The new generation are instantly fairly bright but still take some warming up to reach max brightness. It's like a 40W bulb instantly, then a 75W later. This works well in rooms where people come and stay. But CFLs are not suitable for switching on and off all the time, as in a hallway or bathroom. More soon!" - Stephen Foskett
