A great note from a reader re my brief blog entry last week on light bulbs:
Dear Mr. Hillyer,
I really appreciated your contribution on light bulbs. I’d like to add two more observations. I use conventional incandescent lighting in my livestock barns, with some fluorescent tubes in the aisles of the barns to augment the light. When the temperature drops below 30 to 35, I’ve noticed that the fluorescent tubes’ light output drops to a fraction of what it previously was. Add that to the fact that my fluorescent tubes last about ¼ the time that the incandescent bulbs have lasted. I’m certainly not a fan of CFLs and hope to stockpile enough of the old bulbs to last until there is a reasonable alternative or someone comes to their senses and reverses the new regulation.
Thanks for your enlightening article!
