My shop is a big old shipping
container parked next to the freeway. The security
light by the door was going out about every 3 weeks if not sooner. I think it must have been effected by the vibration from the road. I changed to one of the "100watt" equivalent curly bulbs last year and have not had to change bulbs since. The bulbs are physically a bit larger so getting them into the enclosed fixture took a bit of wiggling.
I'm impressed that something that we are being forced to change to is not only more efficient cost wise but works better than did the old style one. Nice change that. Don't tell the government
they'll get all upitty............m
