Hi, Are there any known screw-in compact flouresant bulbs that will work with an electronic timer? Answered

I have an electronic wall switch timer, I believe the brand is intermatic, if I attempted to use a compact flouresant bulb, it does'nt work properly. Is there a CFL made to work w/ my timer, or is there a special timer made to work w/ these type of bulbs? Thanks

They should all work with mechanical timers, since a mechanical timer is just a motor-driven switch. If you have an entirely electronic timer, you may need to use a dimmable CFL bulb.
