I recently had to replace a couple lightbulbs in a ceiling fan unit in our house. I thought about buying a couple of Compact Fluorescent bulbs, but it seems those are hard to find now in favor of the LED bulbs. I've heard the LED bulbs are more energy-efficient, so I can see why compact fluorescent bulbs might be being phased out. The LED bulbs I bought are white/daylight bulbs, and they seem a little brighter than the old bulbs that were in the unit, but I like the white lite. It seems like a more pure light, with the older bulbs being more yellow. The LED bulbs say they're supposed to last 10 years, which is another bonus. I doubt we'll even be in this house for 10 more years, as we've been looking to get into a better house for us.
Not to mention that with LED you don't have the constant high pitch buzzing that you do with the fluorescent.
