I have used florescent bulbs in my lamps for years. I just changed the first bulb I used, it lasted almost 5 years. Bargain no matter which way you look at it. I have never bought cheap bulbs, even the regular bulbs, the don’t last long & it is a waste of money.

us cash right away. They are a bit expensive but they last a long time (years). We did find that the ones we bought in packs won’t work for long in dimmer switched lamps. ChristineQuote:.

well I am in Ohio – and I can get seasoned firewood for about $85 a
cord which is
fairly cheap around here. I just don’t know how it
compares to how much it will help our electric bill. We are in an
oversized tri-level, and the fireplace is on one end of the main level.
Also looking for regular ideas of cutting back the electric bill. Does
anyone have a list like that? Like 1) turn out the lights (I know that
one – LOL)
