Other things to consider:
- CFL bulbs will not dim unless it indicates so on the package
- Some CFL bulbs take a minute to warm up to reach full wattage; others are “instant on”.
- If you are using a clip-on shade, buy the CFL bulb with a cover.
- CFL bulbs should NOT be disposed of in your normal trash; they should be taken to a place that recycles or to a hazardous waste sight.
