To Dim or not to Dim…

Electrical Tip of the Day:  So as most of you know by now, compact fluorescent lamps (CFL’s) are all the rage.   There are a lot of good reasons to use these lamps for certain applications.  However, in locations where you plan to use DIMMERS they tend to be a poor choice.  Most of the products available at the home stores are not dimmable, and even those that say they are do not perform well and will have a considerably reduced lamp life as compared to not running them on a dimmer.  So, before you spend the bucks make sure you know what you are after and what specific applicaton the lamp will be used for.  More information on CFL lamps see our home page,  www.artisanelectric.net
