Leave a light on

Posted on Tue 06 December 2005 in general

You'd think if you were leaving the house switching off lights (even the energy saving ones) would be a good idea.

Grrrr.

UPDATE:Prompted by discussion I decided to look up how much energy it costs to start a energy efficient bulb. I liked this link as it has a simple calculation attached. However the short answer is once you've had the light on for more than 5 minutes in an empty room your on the wrong side of the energy equation.
