We put those curly efficient bulbs throughout our home and they cost twice as much. They last one year. We have been replacing them regularly for months now.

What brand of bulbs were you using?

My experience with the CFL bulbs is just the opposite. Have them all over the house including the basement for 4 years. Only replaced one so far.

Check the stores for prices they went up in price big time since the first of the year. Probably more like 3 or 4 times the price.

They are blaming this on increase of prices of raw material from China. I think it's price gouging now that they are mandated by the government. Will get worse as time goes on and the 60 and 40 watt incadescent are outlawed.

Sounds like Generous Electric and others might just own our lawmakers.

They were mandated by government, but the Republican Congress refused to fund the oversight which means there is nobody from the government that can stop stores from selling incandescent light bulbs. That's why the 100 watters are still in the store today. No funding for enforcement means there is virtually no law against them.

I don't have to worry about those mercury filled toxic waste bulbs. In stocked up on the good 'ol incandescents that don't turn your home into a EPA site if it breaks.

Has anyone actually read the clean up procedure for the curly bulbs if you explode one of those?
.
How poetically just would it be to drop a case of those in the middle of congress?

I did the same. But now that you can still purchase those old light bulbs, it seems my efforts were fruitless. If the Republicans continue to gain strength, those laws will be a thing of the past.
