I have a question for all the “Sparkies” out there:
Can the use of compact fluorescent light bulbs in a residential light fixture cause intermittent power "blips" that affect not only the fixture containing the complact fluorescent bulb, but also items plugged into receptacles downstream?
I have heard from a few people that claim the ballast in the compact fluorescent bulb can cause such intermittent blips to occur.
Please let me know your opinion.
