Thanks for your kind works on my post and I hope it encourages some of you to move to the light. In all honesty I have been using the new lights for a week now and two things hit me. One the difference in the shop is amazing with the extra light and secondly I donít have that nagging feeling of how much this trip to the shop is costing me every time I flick the switch.

Iím liking the size of your shop . Looks roomy than 6 metres wide for some reason , as you definitely donít look cramped at all.

Iím loving the idea of saving power , but unfortunately for me exposure to over head led lighting brings my herpes virus out of remission on my right cornea , and it happens in short order .
I suspect itís because of all the blue light they output . I had to remove all of mine because I wasnít aware of that problem until I installed them .
Just lost a job opportunity at Home Depot , as they changed from fluorescent lights to led last weekend .
I can only go in their briefly now , which is unfortunate as I really like the employees

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Hi thanks Guy
Here in the UK almost every town has a recycling centre. Where I live in the north east of Scotland our town has a centre run by the town council. Where you can bring anything along from old tvís to garden refuse. The site is huge and each refuse is allocated a dumpster ie scrap metal, cardboard, clothing etc. You just drive up and the guys take everything from you. They have a section just for lightbulbs and fluorescent tubes. There is a special container for overseas aid where you dispose of anything that is still useful. The idea originally started because before the centres many people were just taking their rubbish to the country side and fly tipping. There is no charge unless you are a registered business

Hi Rick
Sorry to here of your condition. I have never heard of this before and wish you well. As for us the reason we are always trying to reduce costs is that our utilities such as gas and electric are horrendous almost the same as having a mortgage. My son lives in Houston and I fill his tank for $30 whereas I fill my tank for $120. It’s Ying yang, we don’t pay for health care here and our insurances are very reasonable. His, is through the roof.

Not sure about Canada.

Iíd certainly use them if I could, but not a prayer . The best light for me is the second least efficient,halogen . Makes sense as halogen is the closest to representing natural sunlight .
I use halogen upstairs and t8 fluorescents in the gym . I have one led on the back outside of my garage that faces the alley on a motion detector . Itís only for security,and Iím not really exposed to it .
If they had a really good quality blue light blocker on a led light ,I suspect Iíd be fine .
I have to use blue blocker reading glasses with computers phones etc

My garage is going to be all fluorescent t8í also . I use the lowest temperature you can buy.

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
