Lights Of America Informative - Compact Fluorescent Light Warranties

Review by buckisid on 2008-01-10
FREMONT, OHIO -- In the 3 months following the Live Earth concert last July, I replaced nearly 36 incandescents with 5 yr warranty compacts. In about 12 weeks, one blew-out. The warranty will not be honored unless you keep all of your receipts and keep a log of where you put each compact.

It is possible to have a faulty light fixture, but I do not believe that is my case, I just didn't keep the receipts.

None of the other compacts have failed, thus far.

I have had some early bad results with CL's also.
One of the "Dollar store" lamps lasted less than a month.

FWIW I have bought some GE bulbs and after more than a year they're all still working well.

I also use the Daylight style in my outdoor automatic "Security" lighting, and they have been reliable even in cold weather.

Also, to keep track, I mark the date of installation on the base with a Sharpie.
