- Light bulbs – what's best?
We’ve no spare old style incandescent bulbs left, and the replacement low-wattage give a cold light, making home feel unwelcoming. The new ones are also slow to start, so no good for quick trips into a room for whatever purpose.Posted 5 years ago
Are there any bulbs out there which deliver a good level of light? What’s a good way of improving things?PaulDMember
somafunk is correct…the RS type are still available for ‘industrial use’.
Try a motor factors for lead-light bulbs.
I think Robert Dyas sell halogen bulbs hidden inside 240v bayonet bulbs…they are bright, fast-starting and reasonably efficient.
Or a carboot sale when they restart in the spring.

The low energy ones take a while to warm up but they should give a nice colour of light, you may have bought the wrong ones. You want “warm white”. Philips and Osram are the best. LEDs are becoming a viable alternative, but as yet the light output is still a bit cold.Posted 5 years ago
