General Electric Complaint - The Short life of GE Helical CFL bulbs
I purchased several General Electric Helical bulbs in July of 2007. They were 13 watt and 20 watt bulbs. At the time the bulbs were very expensive but claimed that the longevity would balance out the cost. These bulbs were installed in my home in rooms such as living room, bedroom and bathroom. My wife and I both work so the lights were not on longer than a typical household. The average lifetime for these bulbs was 41.6 months with a range of 36 to 50 months. I feel that these bulbs did not live up to the expectations as advertised and would like them replaced.
