    Comments about Philips Lighting Company 60 Watt, 120 Volt BT15 Halogen White Bulb:

    I am now using BT15 Halogen Bulbs thoughout the interior of our house. Some light fixtures take only 60 Watt Bulbs while other fixtures can use 100 Watt. I also use 150 Watt BT15 Bulbs in Open Pendant fixtures located in the Utility Room & the Garage. Once you go Halogen throughout the house, there's no going back. They are more expensive than Incandescent bulbs but give much better light. You know the old saying..."Happy Wife, Happy Life"...Well, my wife is completely Happy with the Halogen Lighting results.

      Comments about Philips Lighting Company 60 Watt, 120 Volt BT15 Halogen White Bulb:

      I've been using Philips halogena bulbs for my outdoor lighting needs, for many years. These lights stay on from dusk until dawn and each bulb lasts about 6 months. Ordinary incandecent bulbs did not last more than a few months.
