Yes. Almost literally. That’s possibly definitely a statement of conflict, perhaps.
Traditional bulbs create heat that emits light as a by-product.
Even those cute compact fluorescents get nasty.
A typical 32 watt fluorescent T8 bulb has a surface temperature that hovers around 110 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s nothing compared to a 100 watt incandescent bulb which has a filament temperature of 4600 degrees and a surface temperature of 225 degrees!
Thaaaats a lot of bodies up there….
Walk into just about any Nashville office and you’ll find 2×4 4-bulb fluorescent fixtures scattered about the grid ceiling. Now think of each of those fixtures as two human bodies.
Live bodies. Unless it’s an episode of the Walking Dead.
That’s about how much heat those puppies generate in addition to the real live human bodies that are taking up residence Monday through Friday. Oh your poor HVAC system…..
Energy Efficient LED Lighting generates no heat and all of the energy used is purely for illumination. Plus they’ll cut your electric bill considerably.
Aside from literally taking your money and instantly setting it aflame from that 4600 degree incandescent filament, you’re definitely likely throwing money out the window. But that’s another story.
