Noticed all the energy saving bulbs in our pad have been more 'flickery' than usual... wondered if we were on a bit of a 'brown out'? Energy saving lamps are relatively tolerant of voltage variations, flickering is more likely to be due to cold, they dont tolerate cold that well.[/quote These are c...
