Actually, no. Three of the five 40W bulbs have burned out and I've replaced them with compact fluorescent bulbs. None of those have had any problems (yet).

comment Why are bulbs burning out quickly in newly installed light fixtures?
@Tester101 Just double checked the label. I have 45W bulbs in a 40W (max) fixture. That must be the problem. I'll go grab some 40W bulbs and see how long they last... "Quickly" = one month.
