Switching to Energy Efficient Lighting
When it comes to new lighting technology, "seeing is believing," says our expert.
I don’t think that there will ever be anything better than incandescent.
Okay, technically this is not a question but more of a declarative statement. Here’s the bottom line: Seeing is believing. I take potential clients through my home all the time. It isn’t until the end of the tour that I mention all the lighting is fluorescent or LED. It blows them away. I have to practice what I preach. Still, there are a lot of less-than-lovely fluorescent and LED products out there because they do last a long, long time. Until that stuff is off the market, people will continue to have strong negative feelings.
