They are phasing out the old style. You may not be able to find them in the wattage you want for much longer. They should last longer though. Are they inside something that lets heat build up like a glass chimney or recessed and covered outlet? There may be something wrong with your electrical.

LED lights are still expensive but they should last much longer and save more electricity.

We can get the filament style bulbs, but they are a low energy bulb.
THey have a different inert gas in them. They illuminate a blue light Like an electric arc created from a welding electrode.
