Thanks ACTEW energy saving person!

By Solidarity 18 March 2014 24

Really, thankyou.

I love saving energy. These new bulbs are saving lots of energy!

On the flip side, I CAN’T SEE ANYTHING. WHAT THE HELL IS THE POINT OF A LIGHTBULB IF IT DOESN’T LIGHT ANYTHING?

Does anybody know where I can obtain some lightbulbs that actually work? It seems all the shops only have these new fangled useless bulbs, and the ACTEW man took all my normal bulbs with him.

That stupid “standby” TV thing went straight into the bin as well. What is the point of this initiative?


What’s Your opinion?

Bunnings have LED bulbs

$60 a light bulb

Shop around. We kitted the whole house with new Wide beam LED down lights. 8w draw and most of the time they’re dimmed cause they’re pretty bright. It’s instant light too, none of this warming up like CFL.
The downlighting kits were $40 at Beacon Lighting in Queanbeyan.

Good point. I have looked at the stuff now and see that it is a Yidong wireless unit with a range of 30m which is less than where my neighbour has his TV. My remote master control will turn off multiple power points (wherever a receiver is plugged in between the power point and the device). Thanks for pointing that out.

Did it come with a manual? The receivers might ( or might not, dependant on crappiness of the device) might have a “learning mode” which you should be able to reset, and once you have paired it with your remote control, turn it off so it doesn’t learn the signal from your neighbours remote.

Failing that, get the ACTEW chappy back and get the IR-controlled switch for your telly.

As I already have one of those TV turner-off things I declined his other offer. My neighbour/s have those infrared power point controllers also and it is annoying because we both overide each other’s control so at 10.30pm when I want to watch Lateline he turns his off (he is smarter than me) and we have an “on and off” war. I eventually win.

I thought infrared worked on line-of-sight?
