Can I use a CFL with a timer? Follow

While CFLs can be used with mechanical timers, electronic or digital timers may cause interference with the electronic ballast, and can adversely affect product performance. CFLs used on electronic or digital timers that aren't made for CFLs will fail far before their rated lifetime. Look for timers that are specifically made to work with CFLs.
