light in winterPosted: December 27, 2018
After we have dinner Terry and I put our feet up on the bed and read the newspaper before going on to other reading material. We have a ceiling fan light and two floor lamps. I had long felt that the light from the ceiling fan was insufficient and finally I asked Terry for her thoughts. She agreed.
The ceiling fan light uses bulbs with the thin candelabra-style base. I headed over to Lowe’s to find something brighter. I found GE Reveal clear 60 watt bulbs. I bought those and installed them. That really has made a huge difference.
We’re really not supposed to use more than 40 watt bulbs in that fixture, but we only use the lights for a few hours each evening and we’re right there the entire time. If need be we can replace them with 60 watt-equivalent LEDs, which I might do anyway, just to be on the safe side.
In any case, we really love the increased level of lighting.
