GETTING READY FOR THE LIGHT BULB BAN.
Hey, there’s still a little time to stock up!
UPDATE: Reader Don Bagwell writes: “In all your posts about the incandescent ban, I’ve not seen anything about the emergence of the LED bulb. To my eye that’s a game-changer, provided they do it right (warm light, proper life-span, etc.). Costco had a bunch of ’em. My sense is that’s the next wave. What say you?”
Well, this post sums up my mixed experience with LED bulbs so far. If you pay a lot, they’re okay. If you don’t, they’re no better than CFLs. I think we’re at least two or three years — maybe more like five or ten — away from LED bulbs that are really as good as incandescents.
