I just spent $100 upgrading our dining room lighting from regular incandescent bulbs with a dimmer switch to a CFL friendly dimmer switch with specifically marked dimming capable CFL bulbs.
At full power, they work fine. 5 x 60W equivalent bulbs put the room into "OH MY GOD I'M BLIND" mode quite nicely.
But slide the dimmer just a little bit and BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ an annoying hum comes from the bulbs.
On top of that - the fully dim setting only goes from totally blinding light to about full daylight mode.
Before I totally trash this setup and go back to my nice, warm, DIM incandescent bulbs, is it possible something is wrong with my setup? Maybe my hot and neutral are backwards? (Old old wiring, can't tell which is which w/o trial and error...)
