I keep looking at adverts for LEDs in the home. None of the LED lamps I have seen in the shops look 'right'. They look like something in The Hitchhiker's Guide. Has anyone actually installed a lamp which looks nicer than (or even the same badness as) a CFL? I get really fed up with the slow start of CFLs. I would really like to go for LEDs - even if they are a horrific price. There is the point that they only really save significant money in the summer, when your heating is not on. No one seems to acknowledge that the 'wasted' energy from tungsten actually goes to heat up your home. The only difference in running cost is the differential in Gas / Elec prices. If you heat with Elec, then there is no difference at all.
