Noisy in bed ?

26Nov09

Overall I am a solid fan of these energy saving lamps (CFL).  Until recently I have never experienced in the home the industrial buzzing noises of the old strip-light tube magnetic ballasts.

But there is only one place when a lamp is next to my ear.  It’s a bed side lamp using a 7w CFL candle bulb and guess what ?

Yip, the low level acoustic buzz is more than distracting (when reading of course).

 

Hopefully I don’t get reported to the eco-police but a 20w (shhhh, maybe more) incandescent candle has mysteriously appeared !
