Recessed lighting, dimmer, compact fluerecents...anything special?


I am installing Halo Air-Tite recessed lights with a Lutron dimmer switch. I plan on using compact fleurescent light bulbs. Is there anything I need to be aware of for switch or lights?

Thanks!

Most cfl's do not work with dimmers. You will have to buy special ones to dim.
