Areas with More than 1 light switch......help.....
As you know, you can not use a non-dimmable compact fluorescent light bulb on an electrical line with a dimmer switch on it. Even if you don't plan to move the dimmer switch, it will shorten the life of the bulb and cause it to blow prematurely.
A question was recently posed to us about using a dimmable compact fluorescent light bulb on a line where that are multiple light switches. Unlike the statement in the above paragraph, you can use a dimmable compact fluorescent light bulb on a line without dimmer switches. So, doing this will not hurt the bulb.
And in a case of a large room with multiple entry ways or a hallway where you might have two switches, only one would be a dimmer switch and the others would be regular up and down switches.
