Lightbulb eating electrical system

regular light bulbs seem to only last about 6 weeks and long life bulbs seem to keep working. And a mother board possibily was fried even with a surge protector. This is an older house but does have some updated electical, everything is on breakers but old wiring does still exist. Any cures or reasoning the bulbs are not lasting very long???
Thanks,
Jones

Have you checked the power comeing into the home??? Is it 110V on each leg? 220V on both legs. Next you might try 130V bulbs

Surge suppressors will not work without a true ground.
