We're particular about characteristics of the bulbs we buy. In shaded fixtures it's hard to tell the difference and our house has a warm glow inside.
But in all fairness, nobody in this household reports the headaches or other problems that some folks do. I am sensitive to certain indoor environmental conditions apparently at levels far below other's, so I'm not about to pooh-pooh the headache reports.
CFLs might not be for everyone, and everyone should have a choice.
Exactly... I do get the headaches and sometimes worse (almost migraine)... At my office, I’ve been fortunate to be able to have almost all the fluorescents off, and they let us bring in incandescents (many of us suffer from the same thing).
My husband and I are all about saving energy — we compost, recycle, use water cisterns, save seeds, all of that. The house came with a couple of fluorescent lights — in the kitchen and AZ Room. That’s fine, I just don’t want them where I read or sit for long.
