Getting Quality CFLs
When it comes to light, you get what you pay for, our expert says.
The CFLs I bought at IKEA and Home Depot don’t look like or dim like incandescent. What’s up?
I do agree that what people are buying at the grocery and big box stores are not the best CFLs on the market. They are simply the cheapest. For good color quality and dimmability, they need to seek out better CFLs. This is true of most products. A well-made shirt costs more, but it lasts longer and looks better.
