I have a celiing fan/light in my shack which is operates with a remote control. 
I ended up using the 
dimmable CFLs after the regular CFLs rather rapidly (several months to a year 
was their life 
expectancy). After installing the 4 dimmable CFLs, I have had no failures (at 
least 2 years now). 
As far as RFI -- zip. I operate 160m - 2M and like to chase DX and some 
contesting. Thus I am on the 
air a lot and listening a lot. 
The majority of the lights in my house are CFLs and any RFI that I have has 
come from outside the 
house. The majority of time I have no RFI from outside so have not explored the 
neighborhood to see 
where it comes from.
