Put an incandescent in Wink Tongue

But I'm the one who doesn't pay for the bills so... Which means if I do install an incandescent, I will get a  Slap from my parents. LOL

Here in California, electricity is expensive so that's why I installed another LED.

If that's the case, put a halogen or a CFL, but CFLs looks ugly in some lamps.  Grin

There were CFLs in the light previously (light has covers so our eyes don't hurt from seeing the CFLs in there) but LED lamps were bought and installed in 2018.

Also halogen would be a big no as well. We still have one in use, but it's used rarely.

Sadly your only option are L*Ds. I'll reccomend to you FSL and Great vaule L*D bulbs, have a good quality, and a decent lifespan. I put many halogen bulbs two moths ago, and still not slap from parents.  LOL

L*Ds may look cheap to operate, but when the L*D effects starts to appear in you the doctor will not be cheap. A clear example is the effect of the excessive blue light in your eyes.

I'll be willing to bet it's not as expensive as it is here..! I do pay the bills here, and I still wouldn't touch L*D if I got the electricity for free  Sick

I'll also bet that yours is not expensive as here. Electricity company raise the price in summer and in witer, because pleople uses the electric heaters and the A/Cs.

Just bought THREE Par38 Self Ballasted Metal Halides... GE 23 Watters. I've also just purchased a supposed heat resistant 3 in 1 socket splitter.
The goal is for me to try and use these in my ceiling fan in my bedroom. If those Par38's hang too low, I'll be installing them (with the socket
splitter) in the garage above my car and motorcycle temporarily.

So what is your tariff..? Ours is 32.772p for the first 2kWh each day, 17.718p / kWh thereafter. Not sure what that is in your currency.

The question should be: How long has an average person work for that 1kWh?
It is quite a difference, if that is 15 seconds vs a few minutes...

That wasn't the question I asked. If I wanted to know that, I would have asked that. I want to know how much my bill is going to be, not how long I have to work to get the money. Besides, I'm retired, so I don't work at all any more.

Our tariff is of about CLP$40.000, 50 dollars, or 40 pounds. That's expensive, because we have few appliaces, and we don't use A/Cs or electric heaters or stoves, our stoves runs on fluel. If we use electric heaters or A/Cs the price doubles.  Crazy eyes

That's the price of a whole month bill, not just a single KWH.
