Other Options For Recessed Lighting Bulbs
 
I was thinking of replacing my recessed lighting bulbs with the newer cfl type bulbs that are supposedly longer lasting and use less energy. I currently have 65w, 120v, flood type bulbs in the lighting. Is there a compatible type of the newer type bulbs I can use? This is for a living room and I have 5 of the recessed lights which are on dimmers. I do know that typical cfl's won't work with dimmers but I was just browsing HD's site and I see they have something that sounds like its made for a dimmer.

There are dimmable CFL bulbs, they will be labeled as such
Results may vary depending upon the dimmer you have
