#3
they are making a huge loss on these , i work for an electrical wholesalers and best price i can get them for is around £1.50 per bulb

best bargain for ages so buy buy buy
#4
And blast out half a ton of CO2 driving up there to buy them.

Why oh why, dont they sell them online?

Come to that, why does anybody drive to supermarkets any more when you can do it all online for half the cost (dont make impulse buys) and much less hassle and environmental damage?

we were given two energy saving bulbs from our midwife after the birth of our daughter she said it was a new thing they were doing
but be warned you'd be better off paying the 39p kids have high running costs!!!!!!!

These have been on BOGOF for months at Morrisons. They state they are 99p BOGOF

http://www.morrisons.co.uk/113.asp

My local one seems have problems with the bayonet as they seem to be the most popular, in fcat alst week I had to go through a huge stack of bulbs on display to find a couple of bayonet at the back of the display.

The bulbs are subsided by one of the energy suppliers, name escapes me for now.

Are either of these suitable for lights with a dimmer switch? All the ones i have seen are not suitable if using dimmer switches

Dors dimmer they call them, much cheaper to do below, I aint no expert DIY either

I changed my dimmers upstairs for two, two gang light switches for about £1.50 at Wilkos, very easy to do just takes 5 mins and make sure you switch mains off at circuit breaker.

Thank you for the info shrek, just out of curiousity why cant these be used in dimmers? Will they blow?

Low energy lamps are compact fluorescent tubes. Fluorescent tubes need a high voltage to strike the gas within them (this is what gives the light). Once the tube is lit then the voltage can be lowered. This all happens with the electronics inside every bulb when it is first switched on and that's why they sometimes take a few seconds to 'strike'. Also when the electronics within the bulb lower the voltage, after the gas has been ionised (lit) then the current drops very low - this is why they are low energy.

If you try to use an ordinary dimmer with them turning down the voltage (which is what a dimmer does) has no effect because the gas stays 'lit'. However, once you lower the volts below a certain limit then the gas would stop being ionised and the bulb would go out. So a dimmer would only effectively turn the light on or off. If left at a low setting then at switch on the bulb would not light.

Having said all that there are special dimmer switches that will operate with fluorescents (be they the long tube or the compact) but I am not sure if they are available for the domestic market. You can still use the compact bulb with a normal rotary dimmer switch but you must leave it set to the full position.

As Shrek says in his post you can get more expensive type dimmable fluorescents but that kind of defeats the object.

Hi and thank you for taking the time to explain pugwash, i dont really know why we have dimmers as we never use them as that, they are either on or off, must have just looked nicer than a normal switch at the time we put them in, maybe its time i replaced them, again many thanks

I would have thought a refrigerated supermarket delivery vehicle pumps out a fair bit of CO2, I assume they have to be kept running at all times to keep the stuff cool.

I still do going do into the supermarket version of shopping. I prefer to pick my own stuff and I just buy what I need that I have run out of, I don't spend twice the amount on impulse buys. If something was on offer and was cheaper that the version I was intending to buy I may buy it or if it can be stored I might buy more than I was intending to buy but I wouldn't buy something more expensive on impulse or stuff that would go to waste. If I lived a long distance from a supermarket I would choose internet shopping.

If this impulse buying is what a lot of people do then you have answered your own question - they don't offer internet shopping as some people spend double when they go into the store.

They can be used with dimmers the one I mentioned but there expensive compared with a normal low energy bulbs. As I said I just changed my upstairs dimmers to normal switches, it was only two wires to change and very straight forward, but if you do that please be careful with the mains, and switch off first

My supermarket bills are 25% off since I switched to internet shopping. I havent been to a supermarket in 3 years, even to buy 39p lightbulbs. Supermarkets cover acres in every town in UK, building more and more unnecessary stores, which could all be avoided if we all internet shopped. One delivery van can deliver to 50 households shopping saving 50 return car trips.

If we all stopped going to supermarkets every week, road congestion would reduce and the land could be used for housing and help house prices keep rising out of reach for young couples.

With the codes on HUKD I never pay for delivery, so thats an additional £5 of petrol saved every week. This really is a no brainer on so many levels.

Its fascinating you haven't stepped foot in a supermarket for 3 years. I can see there are benefits of internet shopping but I would take a lot of convincing because I like to look at the sell by dates and work out if it can last the time I want it to I like to choose the cut of meat by how much fat on it and I like, checking the ripeness of fruit and checking out the reduced to 10p bread etc, I mix my shopping between smaller stores and larger supermarkets and I don't like the idea of not popping into the local store when passing to pick up some milk or the greengrocers stall to buy a basket full which is the cheaper or the same price as Tesco but I have to resist and add it to the weekly delivered Tesco as I need £50 for free delivery.

There is something I just don't like about your ideal world where all the supermarkets are knocked down and we distance are selves from the food we eat and base our buying decisions on pretty internet pictures and deliveries from a large warehouse.

Plus what I don't get it why are supermarkets so keen on getting you do do internet shopping by giving out free delivery codes etc. when there must be costs involved in the people picking your stuff and driving it to you and at the end of the day you and others say you spend less money with the supermarket.

Yes, you can use any low energy bulb with a dimmer but you have to leave the dimmer at the max brightness setting. The low energy lamp will not dim if you alter the switch - just go out when it gets too low a setting.

You don't have to change your dimmers to normal light switches. Just leave them in place and then if you go back to a normal, incandescent, bulb the dimmer will still be in place ready to use.

Deal still going on. Got 10 (6 rooms + 4 for future/family) from Morrisons @ Peckham, no signs of shortages. At that price people must be crazy to still use standard heaters...I mean...incandescent bulbs.

I still cannot believe the 39p price...I believe Eon is using this deal as a sort of carbon offset program.

The dimmable ones are really hard to find, just bought some from Energy bulbs. They even dim on a standard switch:)

I popped in Morrisons @ Peckam today to buy another lot of energy saving lamps for my family, but couldn't find the freestanding Philips box they had before. I finally found a handful of the EON subsidisied bulbs with the rest of the energy saving lamps (selling at standard RRP). They were still selling at 39p each, however I'm not sure if Morrisons are discontinuing this offer.

Er, can someone explain the terminology associated with bulbs? Also, how can 11 Watt be 60 Watt?
#32
11 WATT bulbs 'feels like' 60 WATT

18 WATT like 100 WATT

We've been shopping online for nearly a couple of years now. Not only it saves the environment, it also saves my nerves not having to follow the wife for 2-3 hours in the supermarket after a long day at work.

What is BC and Es fit? Also, I am looking to buy a floor lamp...will it be cheaper (in terms of long-term electricity usage) to buy one which takes 5x 10w G4 bulbs or one which is suited for R7s and G9 halogen bulbs - 300w maximum? Any responses appreciated...

BC = Bayonet Cup and ES = Edison Screw. Here is a dummy's guide: http://www.lightbulbs-direct.com/article_view.asp?ArticleID=12. About your other question, it is the total wattage that determines the electricity cost...doesn't matter if it is 10,000 bulbs of 1 W each or 1 bulb of 10,000W. Enegry saving lamps save energy because for example an 11W bulb consumes 11W of energy but gives an equivalent light intensity equal to a 60W incandescent (traditional) bulb.

My 9p hamhock wasn't on the internet, nor was my 9p rack of ribs, nor my 9p chicken breasts(all from Morrisons at the end of the day), my 49p/100g ham wasn't on Ocado's website(knuckle ends on the Waitrose fresh meat counter - always check - if there's less than 250g less they'll sell it at 49p/100g) , nor freshly cooked french stick ..... other than that I can completely see your point of view:whistling:
