I’ve been pondering this for awhile now. It seems to me that even though incandescant light bulbs make more heat than light, they wouldn’t be that much less efficient than flourescent during the winter months. Why, you ask? Because any heat that bulbs produce would heat the room up, thereby decreasing the time the room heater is on.
I suppose it would depend on what kind of heating system you have. But, if you’re room heater ran off of electricity, are bulbs really that much more inefficient than tubes if you take that into consideration?
Or, am I completely insane? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
