Has anyone embarked on replacing halogen down lights with Ecobulbs. I was approached by a company wanting to assess my home to replace all of the halogen down lights with these Ecobulbs (which look like twisted fluorescent lamps) but I am not sure about these lights. They seem to take quite a while to raise themselves to full brightness and that just became a pain when using regular fluorescent lamps i.e. to replace regular light bulbs. Plus I am not sure they last as long as the company claims (i.e. www.energymad.com)
I wondered if anyone else has gone down this path and what your experiences where.
