Light bulbs

Extra small bulbsLittle did we realise in 2006 when we installed light fittings and shades at Well House Manor that took standard 60w fillament bulbs that we would be unable to purchase such bulbs any longer just five years later. And that what's on offer as replacements have different characteristics. All of the following are factors that may need to be considered:


Mini spiral low energy bulbs• Quality of light
• Amount of light
• Aestheics of exposed bulbs
• Diffusion evenness
• Warm up time
• Cost of bulbs
• Life of bulbs
• Running costs
• Ongoing availability
• Safety / acceptable heating of fitting
• Flicker / effect on SAD and Migraine


Stick bulbsMany web sites seem to provide advise - especially from those who sell light bulbs, so on that basis I have to express a degree of concern at their impartiallity. There is something on the direct government site - [here].


Round bulbsYesterday, we replaced pairs of lights in five of our downstairs public / semipublic areas with a whole series of different types of bulbs, and we're going to keep an eye on how each goes, whether we feel the light is dull, how long they last, etc. Getting customer and staff feedback so that we know what suits us


GLS Halogen bulbsThere seem to be even more types of lightbulbs than paragraphs I have to write about them ;-)

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
