Question Looking For A Compact 100W Eq LED for Celing Fan

The lighting (3 bulbs) in one of our ceiling fans is really dim for the room at its rated 60W max. They are 'up' facing,, standard base bulbs. I was hoping to find 100W equivalent LED bulbs to replace them with, but all the bulbs are too 'long' and wind up interfering with the fan blades. Great lighting, until you turn on the fan :-( .

So, I am looking for relatively 'short', 100W equivalents. I tried the GE Bright Stik 100W, but it was too long as well.

Any idea where to source these?

Thanks... ...Mike

Can't directly answer your problem but I service ceiling fans and most specifically state to use incandescent bulbs only. The reason for that is the type of dimming circuit used. Putting LED bulbs in a fan that requires incandescent only can damage the dimming circuit.
