CF floodlight bulbs - experiences?
I am considering Sylvania CF outdoor floodlight bulbs, 23 watts. I realize these bulbs function best in warmth, even though they are spec'd to start in temps as low as 0 degrees F.
I'd like to "go green" by saving energy, but good illumination is also important.
Can anyone share experiences, good or bad, with these, or comparable CF bulbs? Any recommendations or alternatives?
Currently, I have two 150W floodlight bulbs in a motion sensing fixture. With the low energy use of CF bulbs, I would install a dusk-to-dawn sensor instead. This would prevent the bulbs from frequent cycling, which I understand is not good for CF's.
TIA for any advice.
