I have two sets of two light fittings in my lounge, standard not downlight. One is used regularly, the ones over the TV only occasionally. They have GE tiny spiral warm white bulbs in them - these are CFL bulbs.
We've started using the TV set recently, I noticed one bulb was flicking. No problem, I changed it, with a replacement bulb purchased at the same time as the original. The new one flickers too. It's not a really huge flicker, it's subtle enough that some might not notice it, or might notice the light wasn't quite right but couldn't work out why.
Is it just bad luck? Could it be a bad fitting or bad circuit? Should I just put an LED bulb in to see what happens?
If LED is a good idea, any suggestion for brand / model / vendor? They're still not that cheap, but much better than they used to be.
