I just did an unscientific test of the wattage used on the LED bulbs I just got. I took each one out and plugged it into a clamp on spotlight and plugged it into my Kill-A-Watt meter. The floodlight bulbs are using 14W and the globes are using 11W. It's possible that my Kill-A-Watt might not be 100% accurate considering it's not meant to be a precision measuring device and it's kind of been abused. But one would think that the discrepancy in measurements would be the same. For example, the rated wattage of the floods is 13W so the measurement is only 1W off, and it's possible that the manufacturer decided to round down. The globes are rated at 8W and the discrepancy is 3W, that's kind of a significant error.
Just be aware that the ratings on the packages may be wrong, but even if they're off by a couple of watts, it's still better than using 40W bulbs throughout the entire house. I'm definitely going to be looking into replacing more bulbs with LED's over the next few weeks.
Fuck CFL bulbs and Dick's Sporting Goods.
As a matter of fact, fuck Dick's Sporting Goods with broken CFL bulbs.
I'd personally add in "Average Hours per Day On Time" to each room and change it to Kilowatt-hours instead of just Kilowatts.
(Obviously Hours/day will vari depending on the month so that may need to be factored in also)
If God didn't intend us to have guns why did he give us a trigger finger?
That's about a gazillion times more thinking than anyone should ever do regarding a light bulb.
Works for me.
