Compact fluorescent bulbs - Problem?
Posted: 10 Oct 2007 10:41 AM
Hi All,

I have been gradually switching my entire household over to Compact fluorescent bulbs . I have now tried two different brands and have not yet found one that did not have an issue with coming on fully instantly. What I mean by this is that when you flip the light switch on, the bulbs turn on but are very dim. It takes a good 2-4 minutes for it to reach it's peak light output. Has anyone found a particular brand that works better? I would prefer that the light just come on when you switch it on, rather than having to wait a few minutes. After all, when you need light, you need it right away - case in point - I dropped a glass that shattered on my kitchen floor and the light took so long to come on, I couldn't even begin to clean it up right away. I know 2-4 minutes doesn't sound like a lot but it really is when you need to do something quickly.
