    We use them all the time in our ceiling lights… No problem and they are much cooler than the old bulbs…We replaced all on the ones here at the lake place.  And in all the years since we did replace them we have only had one burn out. We got them I think the first or second year they came out.

    I think we have used them for a couple of years now….and we use the florescent ones too… but the LED burn much cooler than any other bulb.. but if used for reading get a higher watt one as they aren’t the best for that.

    We have replaced all our regular bulbs with LED and love them. Only 2 burn outs in 4 years. They are used in both enclosed and open light fixtures. Where we read we use the DAYLIGHT ones and that does not require a higher wattage.

    Sharon is right, they burn much cooler. :)

    We had one in a three-way light and the darn thing began to smoke and then just exploded.

    Maybe it woukd be a good idea to get a new lamp to use w/ the new led’s.  Marilyn, I have heard thatvhappens w/ certain kinds of led.  Check w/ your local fire co about that.  In Lancaster, fire companies atpre making it a public awareness thing about “some” of the new kinds of led bulbs.

    We tried the new bulbs and weren’t sold on them.  So we stocked up on the older type.  The light is not as bright in the new bulbs we didn’t think.  We have a lot of ceiling lights that are on our ceiling fans.
