Picking up something from Steptoes thread with recessed lights.

Anyone noticed how carp the warm white tubes are ? Started to change tubes at a regular customers offices from WW to Cool white, vast difference.

The emergency fittings my wholesales supplies come with a warm white 8watt tube ,again the ouput is that poor I buy a White 8w and sling the other.

I've always found that warm white looks better when there is some natural daylight available.

Otherwise I use Cool White.

Isn't it quite a lot of hastle changing the bulbs twice a day ;)
As you are still a young padawan, yet learning fast, I shall forgive the mis-spelling of hassle! :p

Also we don't call them 'bulbs', we call them 'lamps'. ;)

Bulb: electric lamp consisting of a transparent or translucent glass housing containing a wire filament (usually tungsten) that emits light when heated by electricity

Lamp: a piece of furniture holding one or more electric light bulbs

:D
