Can GU24 Socket Lamps Be Used With Dimmer Switches
Question: Can I use a standard incandescent dimmer on a fixtures that utilizes GU24 sockets? Or would this fall under a CFL type dimmer system?
This electrical question came from: Cinda, a Homeowner from Greensboro, GA
Thanks for your electrical question Cinda.
Cinda, the CU24 Lamps fall under the same category as a CFL lamp which commonly is not compatible with a standard incandescent dimmer switch. If the dimmer switch and the GU24 lamps state that they are compatible then your safe, however at this time the two are not compatible.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
