I put these bulbs in the house everywhere. They do not last long. Many take too long to get to full power. I have removed and rid myself of all of them. I was one who had headaches from them.
I have bought tons of the real light bulbs. Good riddance. All this new lightbulb BS is just a way to pad the pockets of GE.
When I go into stores that use florescent lighting, I feel light-headed and ill at ease. I did buy a nice green cfl for outside lighting. I don’t have to actually see it, so no problem. I’m curious to see how long it lasts. It’s a green bulb, 12 watts. Puts out pretty good amount of light.
AND if it's in a very cold place, like a shed or back porch, ferget it! They won't come on at all!............
