    Went through that 2 times now. First when compact fluorescent came out and now again to switch to LED. All my shop fluorescent fixtures were changed to T8 fixtures using LED tubes. All bulbs in the house are Std LED type. I made sure to buy Std fixtures that take a screw in bulb so I don't have to hunt for a replacement. You have to pay attention to the wavelength of the LED if you want more natural light colors---otherwise it is a real bright white light. Also, make sure that the LED bulb is UL or Edison Lab approved for safety. Lots of Chinese made stuff that can catch fire and burn because it is not UL or Edison Lab tested.

    The kids bought me a LED work Light on tripod for Fathers Day. It puts out intense white light without the heat of my quartz lights. Yet to see how long it will last. The Quartz lights are delicate, and always burning out. It's a single and puts out more light than my double 1200watt Quartz.

    Its amazing the power saved with led’s. When we added up our total watts per day used, it was a no brainer to go with led’s. That freed up a lot of watts that could be used or not used elsewhere. We are into year 4 off grid an no burnt out ones yet.
    However complicated the issues become... it comes down to one simple question. Which is more important to you Life or Liberty? I've made my decision long ago.

    I changed all of the 12V lights in my RV to LED. The converter cooling fan would run when I had just a few of the old incandescent lights on, but now it it doesn't run at all. It's certain to prolong the life of the converter.

    I put in a lot of ceiling fans. I had been saving the light kits off the old ones that took standard bulbs. The next generation had low voltage bulbs and made very little light. Now the new generation fans have LEDs makes better lite than the old standard bulb. LEDs can be bought to fit either of older generation fans except maybe the type with two pins instead of threaded socket.

    Love LEDs. It’s great they are making the odd sizes. I still yell at my wife to turn out the lights.
    It’s really paid off at our off grid cabin, running a battery bank and 2 solar panels the leds really extend battery life.

    I changed the entire house to compact flourescent bulbs about 22 years ago then switched to LED bulbs about 8 or 9 years ago. You're way behind the curve.
