Jack of all - master none
From my current experience, dimmable fluorescent bulbs are a scam. I replaced 2 regular 65w recessed light bulbs in the kitchen - figuring I'd do a couple at a time since the bulbs are a little pricey. When I dim the circuit, the normal bulbs will still dim all the way down, but the new fluorescent bulbs go from bright, to a little less bright. They don't really "dim." Is it because I have intermixed incandescent and fluorescent bulbs on the same switch, or do they just suck for dimming?
