What the FUCK is this comment?
Low energy bulbs do not, in any case, save as much energy as claimed. This is because unlike conventional bulbs they produce very little heat. Therefore in a house using low energy bulbs the central heating system will have to work harder to make up the difference. Thus assuming one's central heating system is on for 6 months per year, the actual energy saving is only half what is claimed. Ask any physicist.

Who the hell has bulbs hot enough to not need the central heating on?
