LED Lights and Dimmer Switches


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

LED Lighting and Dimmer Switches – Most dimmer switches can be adjusted to enable the full range of lighting control.


Can LED Lights Work With a Dimmer Switch

Electrical Question: We have a new home with a Loft ceiling fan with no light attached. It is on a switch that turns the fan on. Next to that switch is another single switch which turns on 2 recessed led lights. When I flip the switch for the fan, the led lights flicker. Our electrician says this is normal and we should just live with it. We also have a problem with a dimmer switch (another led light) which when turned to the lowest setting, the light will burn for a while and then go off.

This home electrical question came from: Laura, a Homeowner from San Marcos, Texas.
