However, while switching from incandescent to compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) – whether to conserve the environment or your pocketbook – some quetions might arrise.

One is, “Can compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) be used in a 3-way lamp?” The answer is yes. A standard CFL May be used in a 3-way lamp. However you will only get light in the middle of the three on positions.

There are three-way CFL light bulbs readily available.  There is even one with an LED night light.  How practical!
