Help with: Dimmable Compact Florescent Bulbs


I thought they were fairly common?
Weird thing is I bought the light for my old house
It was the only wooden one I could find
I was there 7 years, CFL's worked fine

We buy a new house
Same fan & light in the bathroom
After 5 years the fan is going - bearings
So I am buying a new one soon

Dimmable CFLs should work with any dimmer designed for them.

And I also have to agree with scuba Dave, LED bulbs are just too far off to consider for everyday household use. I'm too old for the fifty year payback and don't care about the trace amount of mercury in CFLs which is just an ed bagely cop out and partial ruse.
Nobody says squat about any of the millions of office buildings, shopping malls, industrial complexes etc etc who all run fluorescent tubes with mercury in them that when totaled would make every CFL ever made and those made for next two decades look like a teaspoonful of mercury in comparison. not an excuse to dump it in the land fills just an observation.
