    Let me encourage everyone who purchases these new light bulbs to keep your receipts, your warranty information and your packaging.

    I purchased ten 100 watt fluorescent bulbs (Cost was $8 a piece) and three of them have already died in less than a year.

    You may save on your energy bill, but the extra personal time and energy you’ll spend chasing the manufacturer down for a replacement bulb or a refund is going to be ridiculous.

    People often assume that the end of incandescents means you
    turn to Cfls- This is ignorance, the idea behind the ban is to
    promote energy efficient alternatives – Beside the Cfl option
    there are options Like ESL and SSL – The logical choice is to
    use quality Leds – The use of the various types of 19th century
    tech to light a space is ridiculous in 2011- Its time for Leds – Thats the appropriate lighting for this era-
    unless your an amish person – which would beg the question, if
    your Amish why/how are you viewing this?

    LEDs are the best choice. Make sure you’re buying quality lights though, or you may end up chasing manufacturers. Quality leds last longer than any other light, will save you money in the longrun and are safer for us and the environment.

    What is seldom mentioned with CFLs is the fire hazard they can present. I had one fail a couple of years ago, showering sparks on an end table. Without someone sitting there to turn off the power, we could well have had a major house fire. I’ve reported to UL with documenting photos. BTW, I bought them to save energy before it was fashionable and not because it was green. Burning the house down wasn’t part of the bargain. I’m stocking up on incandescents.
