Garage Mod Part 2 – Lights!

Reminder of the incandescent light bulb ban

November 24, 2013 2 comments

Just a quick reminder to pickup whatever stock you think you might need.  Reference this post https://murison.wordpress.com/2011/09/24/incandescent-light-bulb-ban/

I was just at the store and there are no 100W or 75W bulbs to be found.  Good supply of 60W for now.

I’ve gone to LED for the can lights in the kitchen and they work great.  There is a fraction of a second delay between turning on the switch and the light coming on, but they come on at full brightness so I can deal with that.  Slowly working on replacing all the CFL flood light bulbs with LEDs.  LED prices are still too high for all the fixtures in the house so I’ve stocked up with a supply that should last about a decade.  By that time the price should be better, or I will have won the lottery 🙂
