I just replaced the bulb in my main living room light with an energy efficient bulb that is supposed to last for 7 years. The light is a little dimmer than a standard incandescent bulb, but the color temperature is similar. That means it is orange/yellow light as opposed to the blue/green color of fluorescent lights. There is a bit of a delay when you flip the switch, but otherwise it should be fine.
