Once you've got the bulbs you can use the paper to light a fire to make up for the lower heat the bulbs are putting out :lol:

Are these full spectrum fluorescent bulbs that emit a nice white light? AKA 'SAD' - Seasonal Affective Disorder bulbs.Or the **** ones that hardly give any light off at all (a dim yellow shade).

If it's the full spectrum 6000 Kelvin ones, where 24W has an equivalent of 100W of incandescent, then it's a good deal. I've fitted most of my home with these and they are brilliant, particularly if you want to strengthen your eyesight, they enable a strain free environment, optimum conditions for that. Good also if you have light sensitivity, want to look directly at them and gradually accustom yourself to strong light, they are easy to look at directly.

Hi

I am desperate for WHITE LIGHT energy bulbs - got one from abroad - a million times lighter than the dull, depressing yellow ones we have at the moment.

Any idea what they are called & where they can be bought? The 'daylight bults' arereally expensive - £8 each??

I just need BRIGHT WHITE LIGHT

We have it in one room - the rest of the house is shrouded in yellow darkness :(

Hope this isn't a voucher to get 2 a day scheme.
I suspect it will either be that. or you'll have to collect all the vouchers printed to get the 12.
#11
Id rather live in darkness than by THE SCUM...besides, they are virtually giving these things away everywhere!

Thanks for the link - TBH, I'm not sure.

I just need something that gives us BRIGHT WIHITE LIGHT - not the dull yellow the cheaper bulbs give.

Just want the effect of my old 100W bulbs :(

All it says on the sun website is it is giving away 2 free bulbs on Monday 23/2/2009
http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/fun/competitions/promotions/article645906.ece
But it goes on to say:
"To get your free energy saving light bulbs, simply collect the light bulb voucher printed in The Sun newspaper every day this week and hand them in to your nearest participating Co-operative store."

So it could mean you can get 2 every day for the rest of the week or you have to collect a voucher every day and get 2 at the end of the week??

Hi Gollywood,

I've discovered that you don't need to go abroad to get them, or pay loads for shipping fees from a foreign shop.There're plenty of online shops which sell them here in the UK. They are called 'daylight', 'full spectrum flurescent', 'light therapy', or 'SAD' bulbs, among others.£8-10 is around the usual price you'd be looking at with these daylight bulbs. Just shop around a bit, I know Amazon and Ebay have them. To be sure that they give off the pure white light, look for the Kelvin (K) or colour temperature measurement. 6000 is a pure white.

I do recall getting some very cheap full spectrum bulbs off Ebay, only about £3 each, and despite having been cheap they are splendid, light up my landing and small bathroom nicely. Androv, Osram etc. seem to be reputable light bulb manufacturers, but given my experience branded bulbs are inessential.

I find it good to have all full spectrum bulbs downstairs, for the daylight hours, but leave one incandescent bulb in each of the bedrooms upstairs, so that during the night hours before bed it won't disturb the body clock. Hope that helps.

Great post! Rep added!

I think the 'Daylight' ones might be a bit extreme for us.

But we want bright white - you know, like the old style 100W bulbs used to give off

No harm in trying one.

Thanks for the info

U had too many Milkybars?
Not sure that there's any evidence that any particular wavelength protects against 'SAD'. The brain will adjust to differences in wavelength, unlike cameras that offer variations in white balance to compensate. Dimmer upstairs lighting makes sense but comments like 'strengthening eyesight' do not. Please don't look directly at any light source!!!

Can you explain to me why not? People have been looking into the sun for centuries who had just fine eyes.

Hi, I've no axe to grind here and don't wish to offend/insult but as a fellow human being I would respectfully advise against looking directly at any strong light source.
I know we're not meant to but most people live beyond 70 years of age nowadays and hope to see well. I guess it's the same argument as ---smoking --> lung cancer / heart disease
excess alcohol---> liver disease (rich coming from me)
