Unfortunately they don’t work in dimmers. I can’t wait for some to come out that do, we have dimmers on all of our mainrooms ceiling fans.I would love to use thespiralfluorescent bulbsbut I figure the dimmers probably save us more money,we usually keep the lights low but it is nice to have the bright or low option.

I bought the spiral flourescent bulbs that were supposed to last years
and had 5-6 of them blow out in the first year. Didn’t even last as
long as most regular bulbs and cost so-o much more. BUT I was using
them in fans!
Also, you can’t use them in several other things such as
dusk to dawn, motion, and I’m not sure about dimmers. This has all
been several years ago so hoping that soon they come out with some that
can do all those things. Karen
