Car of the day:
I never cared much for lamps until I started getting older. Home building around here went thru a stage that one maybe two outlets were controlled by a switch (For lamps) with no overhead lighting. I never could do that, I always wired and installed overhead lighting even if the plans did not call for it.
We have some neat designed lamps, 15 all totaled. Only two match. I also do not care for the 3 level lamps mainly because of the cost of the three filament bulbs. They are handy but mostly I don’t have any reason for the dim lights, LOL.
Something else about the new lighting, I haven’t noticed that the bulbs last any longer than the older filament bulbs. I have replaced several of the low voltage led light bulbs here at the house.
I made the mistake of changing one or our fluorescent fixtures in the coach with the bright LED white, Sherry hated it, so I changed it back.
Then ceiling fans with lights became the rage. So I installed fan-lights in the homes I built. We have a couple in this home but they are never used. We just don’t care for the moving air, it sorta bothers us.
Below shows only one fan but the camera shutter speed stopped the blades. LOL
I’m a tight wad but if fans are used in a home they take VERY LITTLE power. If you run one all month it probably would not cost $2. When we sold our house over on Main St. a very wealthy man bought it. When touring the house he noticed the fans in the pool room running. None of the other fans in the house were running. He asked how often we ran them. I told him they ran 24/7 since the power was turned on to the house; adding that they cost very little at the low speed and it helped control the humidity from the pool. His response was, “I can’t have that!” ;-) He was a bigger tight wad than I!
PS: We smiled the other day when we saw that house for sale, asking $535,000!!! We sold for $165,000 methinks. Housing is crazy now.
