It appears that the UK Government has decided to outlaw traditional "high energy" light bulbs starting next year.
The point of this thread is not to debate the rights and wrongs of either this specific issue, or the contribution (or otherwise) of CO2 emissions to climate change, but simply to ask a question about Low Energy bulbs.
My wife and I have used LE bulbs in our house for all of our married life (15 years+), with the the exception of one light ... the bathroom. The reason we have never used one in here is that all the LE bulbs we have ever used have specifically stated on the packaging that they are not suitable for use here, which I have always assumed was to do with the level of moisture relative to the rest of the house.
Question is ... as the trad bullbs are on the way out, is this whole not using LE bulbs in the bathroom a genuine concern? And, if so, what are our alternatives?
