Off Grid Home Forums Technical Discussion Energy saving light bulbs Re: Energy saving light bulbs


A concern of mine is the effects of EMR using fluorescent lightbulbs. I had fluorescent lightbulb in my van and I got a headache after reading under it.

I don’t think there is enough research done on the subject but personally I avoid those and now use LED lights on my van.

I find it hard to read under the light of CF light particularly in libraries where they seem to be prevalent. Also I find hard to read labels in supermarkets under the CF lights.

Makes me wonder if reading under CF lights would cause premature eyesight deterioration?
