    Light bulbs for ceiling fan??

    Random question but somebody must have one. I'm after low energy bulbs (ES) but not the stick variety as they'll probably look cack (if they even fit...). Anybody have any links, recommendation on what they use themselves?

    It's the size that's the problem though:oops: :lol:

    The ones in fans are about 2/3 the size of a standard bulb (at a guess). Most energy saving bulbs are huge.

    Haven't got a Morrisons nearby.

    I swapped my fan ES 60W spotlights for some philips low energy spiral ones - they look fine.

    ES E27. Just trying to find out my options as in a few months supply will dry up of the bulbs that are supposed to be in the damn thing and I don't want to start using clear ones.
