Rowingmon, Where did you find incandescent light bulbs?
We are Canadian, and although they are phasing them out here too, I can still find the 40W, 60W and 25W. I am stocking up.
Some of the LED bulbs (the non-dimmable ones) are OK as well according to Dave Stetzer:
"Many LED light bulbs are not electrically polluting, are highly energy efficient, and won't break and contaminate your house with mercury. According to Dave Stetzer, President of Stetzer Electric, none of the non-dimmeable LED light bulbs he has tested thus far have radiated high frequencies or put high frequencies back on the wiring. Dimmeable LED light bulbs are highly electrically polluting. This makes non-dimmeable LED lights the best choice thus far for energy efficient lighting. (Dimmer switches are themselves extremely electrically polluting and thus must be removed so using non-dimmeable LED light bulbs is no hardship.)
There are two other potential problems to consider when purchasing an LED light bulb. One, be sure the light bulbs you purchase do not carry a warning like the following: "This product may cause interference with radios, televisions, telephones or remote controllers." Two, don't purchase an LED light fixture that has a transformer. The transformer is likely to have a large electromagnetic field polluted with high frequencies.
An interesting article (http://www.dolevltd.co.il/UserFiles/File/True%20
Lighting.pdf) discussed the much lower energy use and good power quality profile of LED lights. Not only are LEDs better for your health, but also better for your wallet. CFL lights claim a 75% energy savings over incandescent lights, but are mostly highly electrically polluting and also transmit radiofrequencies off the bulb, which can be heard as static on the AM dial of a portable radio. LED lights have about
a 97% energy savings over incandescent lights without the power quality issues that can cause electric bills to increase - if electrically non-polluting bulbs are selected, see above."
