Can I use a compact fluorescent light bulb with a dimmer switch?

To use a compact fluorescent bulb on a dimmer switch, you must buy a bulb that's specifically made to work with dimmers (check the package). We don't recommend using regular compact fluorescent bulbs with dimming switches, since this can shorten bulb life.
