When people think about dimming, they usually think about incandescent light bulbs, but did you know that you can now get dimmable compact fluorescent light bulbs as well? You can get the benefit of great energy savings and still get the lighting effect you want to get. Up until recently, getting dimming in a compact fluorescent was difficult because of the electrical considerations, but not anymore. These will work on a standard incandescent dimmer giving you the ability to dim down to 15% of full light output. When compared to incandescent lighting, these are longer lasting, using much less energy making them a perfect choice for almost any type of lighting. There are several kinds of compact types which include the regular household base, spiral shape, R20, R30 and R40 sizes to replace almost any flood light you may be using now. The R30 dimmable is a suitable replacement for 65BR30 lamps, which are probably the most common flood light in use today. So there are many ways for you to get effective dimming while saving energy with dimmable compact fluorescent.

With the advent of higher electrical costs, many businesses are looking for ways to save energy with lighting.  Obviously, dimmable compact fluorescent light bulbs are the perfect choice to replace higher wattage incandescent flood lamps and save energy.  Just look for areas where you might use incandescent light bulbs and find the right replacement on our web site.  The most typical light fixture these are used in would be the 6" recessed can light used in entry ways or general lighting. You will find a great reduction in your electrical bill while still getting the amount of light that you want.  You will be able to dim the light down for any special occasion that you might have. If you have dimming capability in table lamps, then we have spiral dimming lamps that will work in general lighting or anywhere you would put a regular light bulb.

As with all fluorescent bulbs, they rely on ballasts inside of the fixtures or units to make them work. The ballast is important because it is specific for each type of lamp.  With these dimming compacts, it's especially critical that the ballast is one that is rated for dimming on incandescent dimmers. They don't always work with every dimming situation, but in most of them, they work wonderfully. Most of the time though the ballast in the lamp are matched electrically and so it's good to make sure the ballast you have is the right one for the lamp you choose. Typically, dimmable compact fluorescent light bulbs come in one piece units, but eLightBulbs.com, has them in replaceable lamp units which will save you even more money over the long haul.  With the one-piece units, you simply throw it away when you're done with it.

Remember that there are many types of dimmable compact fluorescent light bulbs, we describe some of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here.  Keep in mind that we also stock all the larger or linear types of fluorescent lamps used in commercial lighting.  Whatever type you choose or have, you will be saving energy while getting the most light you can for your money.  We have a large inventory of fluorescent bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying the bulb you have, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
