Q: Can someone tell me more about the use of fluorescent and LED lighting in homes?

I'm concerned about the environment and my pocketbook. I would love to use fluorescent or LED lighting in my home. Unfortunately, I find the light they produce to be cold and harsh. I love the warmth that incandescent bulbs produce. That warmth is one of those things that makes a house feel like home! I read an article in a magazine 6 months or so ago. That article said there are different ratings or types of bulbs and that some can actually produce warm light. It was pretty complicated and I didn't really understand it all. Can anyone explain these ratings to me? Also, is this just marketing or can they actually produce light that is as warm as an incandescent bulb? Thank you.
