It seems to me that the CFL replacements are not all they are made up to be.
I was using 130V Commercial Service Incandescent bulbs rated for 15,000 hours when operated at 120 Volts.
I have had many CFL failures , just to find out that the CFLs are only rated for 8000 hours.
In what way can these be called Longer Lasting. Compared to what ?
I have yet to see a CFL last as long as the Commercial Service Incandescent.
I have yet to see a CFL last more than 2 years. I know that I have not exceeded the 8000 hour limit.
Is it just me having issues ?
I would like to know what Brand and type to buy that could come close to the Commercial Service Incandescent bulbs. I have seen them last 5 Years.
Or is it time to go LED ?
