- Mar 4, 2007Robert you might have issues with your voltage or power quality at your dwelling. It is not unusual to have voltage swings from 117 to 134 volts depending onthe time of day and your space on the power line. It is unusual for all the brands to have longevity problems, I think the common denominator might be some other issue. I do agree with your point that they are not for everyone and every application.There are small power conditioners that smooth out the power voltage, ;phase etc... and provide clean power, a good experiment would to plug of these in and then runthe bulbs off it to see if there is any difference.all the bestJohn Miggins

I continue to have such bad luck with longevity of CFLstypically just 6 mos to 2 years (max)vs. claimed 5-7 yrsthat I dont think they should be legislating CFLs until the technology is working as advertised. Ive tried half a dozen brands including Autocell Electronics and they just arent lasting. Is it lightning in this region affecting electronic ballasts, or what? The other issue I have is that stores arent carrying 2700 K bulbs for the most part. If they would, I think it would be easier to get folks to switch, since they have color more similar to incandescents, instead of the garish blue of high color temperature CFLs.

But what about when the incandescent is the proper bulb, that is when
you need the heat, not just the light? Hardly a sin. Do you like to
eat? If yes, please don't punish the farmers, we have a hard enough
time as is.
