Yeah, I have some CFL's and I don't like them in certain locations for the same reason.

Mel...can you post a pic of what the fixture looks like?

If it is a recessed can, the bulb upgrade is not the preferred method of LED retrofit.

Here is a pic. They are on the first floor ceiling of a two floor house, so I don't have access to them above.

Sounds like I need to go check out HD's selection today :-)
