The style of fixtures vary.140412-1244 EDT
If there is no air flow around the bulb, then this may be the problem. What kind of fixture?
See my posts #10 and #11 at http://forums.mikeholt.com/showthread.php?t=160447 .
my next door neighbor came over, convinced the wiring in his house was failing.I had had several calls from a few comercial customers.. "I just put these bulbs in, they burnout quickly , There must be something wrong with the fixtures"
The common thing is " UTILITECH " brand recently puyrchased from lowes.
Has anyone else had problems????
I didn't like them either. But when I can get 8 CFL's for $1.99 at Sam's Club, I learned to like themFor me cfl's are my last resort. I never did like them even though their are some good ones out there. The biggest problem has been much lower life then expected
Really When I moved into this house in 2008 I installed all CFL's some were ones I had took from my old place, also I removed all dimmers, I only use Sylvania Micro Mini's 2700k color and 60 watt and 100 watt EQL. which when behind a frosted cover you cant tell from an incandescent, I think I have replaced 3 in the 6 years I been in here., over the years I have tried many different brands and types, from the cheap to the name brands like Phillips, Ge, and a few others, and the above are the only ones I have come to rely on, even the full size Sylvania's don't seem to last as long as the Micro Mini's.For me cfl's are my last resort.
