Dimmable Compact Fluorescents (CFL and CCFL)


Finding dimmable CFL bulbs has traditionally been a challenge because the way that fixtures work to dim an incandescent bulb is to cut the amount of voltage reaching the filament, which is how those bulbs produce light. Dimmable compact fluorescents do not create light in the same way, so limiting the voltage does not create the same result. However, technological advances have been made that now allow compact fluorescent bulbs to dim to a much greater degree than in the past. The amount a CFL bulb will dim varies from product to product and also with the type of dimmer that is used with it.
