Cfl bulb omitting odor
I was wondering if anyone here can answer my question..My garage was filled with a toxic odor, which I thought there was something wrong with my boiler when I discovered that a cfl bulb was burnt out and there was a red glow to base of bulb. Has this happened to anyone? There is new wiring in garage that has been done 6 months ago, and bulb was fine until recently. I've read there isn't much mercury in these bulbs but why such an odor?? This is very concerning to me.
