Before the arrival of dimmable CFL bulbs, compact fluorescent lighting installations were limited to switching-only applications, or installations where user control or personalized lighting was not required. With dimmable compact fluorescent lamps, the convenience and energy savings of CFL technology applies to almost any project that requires high-efficiency, low-cost individual light sources. Dimming a CFL light source reduces its energy consumption at an almost 1:1 ratio.
The screw-in/Edison-base and GU24/pin-base lamp combines the excellent efficiency of fluorescent lighting technology with the simple replacement and familiarity of the standard incandescent light bulb. Dimmable CFL lamps are the right choice for any application or retrofit job that demands a high degree of occupant comfort and enhanced indoor environmental quality in addition to highly efficient individual light sources.
Dimmable compact fluorescent bulbs are a great fit for private offices, hotel guest rooms, and task lighting when controllable light output, excellent color rendering, and low energy usage are all required.
