I have a floor lamp that has an inline dimmer switch. I would like to replace the incandescent light blub with a compact fluorescent blub in order to save electric power (and for another reason). The problem is that I can only find dimmerable compact fluorescent blub up to the equivalent of 75-walt incandescent light blubm, and that is too low for the area that I want to illuminate. On the other hand, the high power version of compact fluorescent blub that I want is not dimmerable. I think the best solution is to get rid of the inline dimmer-switch of the floor lamp and make it non-dimmerable (I never want to dim the light in that area anyway). Can I simply cut out the inline dimmer switch and reconnect the power wires together?
Thanks in advance for any info.
