Are these bulbs ok?

I replaced my conventional 60 watt light bulbs in my ceiling fan with these LED’s. The box says they use 120 volts and 15.5 Watts. Do you see any problem using them in that fixture? 

They are “daylight” bulbs and really show off the details on my layout. 1650 lumens.

Note that they're non-dimmable, other than that, they should work fine.  Nowadays, all the LED bulbs I buy are the dimmable variety.  I also make sure any dimmers are rated for LED lighting.  I'm almost 100% LED lighting here at my place, only a couple of places where incandescent bulbs are still in use.

The dimmable were almost twice the price and since I don't have a dimmer....... THANKS very much for your reply.

I also put LEDs in all of our ceiling fans about 5 years ago, they are still doing just fine. Also, like GRJ above, I am almost 100% LEDs at our house. I think the seldom used lights outside for the driveway are the only incandescents left. And as Leo says you will not only save on the light bill, but the LEDs will last a WHOLE LOT longer (per box, 18+ years on yours). Pretty amazing things! Mine will probably outlast me.
