A few years back I threw out every incandescent bulb in the house and replaced them with compact florescents. In all that time only 1 or 2 went bad and burned out. Recently, even though it really was not necessary, I upgraded the old "warm" cfl to the new "daylight" cfl.
I use incandescent for anything that gets frequent switching, CFLs for some overhead lights, and HID for the main living space. Mostly metal halide, but sometimes HPS or LPS. LEDs are nice, but dim. HID beats the piss out of them when it comes to $/lm and they have comparable efficiencies.
I use a mixed bag really. Lights that are on often and for a long time have 827 clfs mostly, unless they are on dimmers where i just use incandescants. I have some halogens in the hallway, reflector incandescents in the kitchen, and i think there is a plain old 60 watt incandescent in the loo
I'm considering getting some leds for the dimmable fixtures though, but it's hard to find good, 2500-2700K white leds at a reasonable price.
Most lights are CFLs but I'm slowly going over to LED. The fllod lights in the back are LED along with the lights about the showers/bath tubs. The kitchen light is being upgraded to LED after I return to the US. I bought one Cree LR6 to try out and I liked it enough to upgrade the other 5. The light fixture about the dining table is going to get LED bulbs. I'd like to go with these. If they are cheap enough, I'd like to replace all my A19 bulbs with them. Two rooms are a PITA though. They have ceiling fans with the tiny candelabra base bulb sockets. That means I either have to deal with crappy dim incans or CFLs. Finding bright bulbs with that type of base is like searching for a needle in a haystack. I guess that s**tty design came around because of our crappy government. They should make sure there are decent replacements before phasing out stuff.
The phase out is might annoying indeed, and seems to be moot. In europe incandescents with a normal shape/size have been phased out for models 40 watts and over.
Energy prices alone would have driven people to more economical alternatives for lights that are actually on for a long period of time. I see no good reason why you should use incadenscents in the toilet, storage room or a shed that you only use a couple of hours a year.
Luckily the do have those halogen-bulb-in-a-bulb lamps though. Those are instant on and not that expensive to purchase.
I've got a combination of fluorescent and incandescent bulbs in my house. Mostly incandescent bulbs though. I usually try to pressure my mom into getting the more energy efficient ones but the price as she says doesn't justify spending 9 bucks more on a lightbulb...
One thing that does worry me about the light I have by my computer is the fact that a plastic cord I had lying there for a few days turned very yellow and crinkly... I think the bulb has some excessive UV output or something.
