I didn't think it was personal to point out that I find it hard to understand, when people mis-spell. I certainly don't believe it to be childish or attacking people. So people admit, that flo tubes get warm, but not hot.

Monkeh - a lightbulb DOES contribute heat to a room, as does a candle, a tiny bit. People had electric lightbulbs and candles before central heating in the modern sense was invented.

i will assume these are terms off endearment :D :D

Are the mentally deranged allowed to post? Smaller bulbs produce heat? 20 year old energy efficient bulbs? I'm confused. I buy energy efficient bulbs with a claim that they last longer than traditional bulbs, and fail at install.
A 6 foot flo tube gives off a lot of heat; that what you say? Are you in a mental hospital?
:D :D

any way shall we just call it quits and agree we see things differently :D ;)

A completely insignificant amount of heat.

What do you consider hot? Because I find touching an operating 21W CFL to be painful. That's hot.

Not when broken or turned off. Only the maniac or stupid would touch an operating 21W CFL when switched on. Do you lick electricity also? A flo tube warm. A bulb burns. An important lesson.

It's just as hot a couple of minutes after it fails when you go to change it, funnily enough.

Do you avoid touching your computer's case while it's on? What about your phone charger? Do you not touch a lightswitch without first isolating the circuit? Oh, wait, you'd be touching the live MCB to do that! :rolleyes:
