How to avoid audible buzz with dimmer switch
 
I have a ceiling fan that runs to a wall switch. I want to replace the ceiling fan with a ceiling can light, and I also want to replace the wall switch with a dimmer switch. I want to avoid the annoying buzzing sound that sometimes occurs when a dimmer is used to decrease the light intensity. Anyone know how to avoid that buzz? thanks

Buy a good quality dimmer.

The buzz is the lamp filament vibrating. Use quality bulbs.
