LED Lighting and Dimmer Switches
- The LED lights and the dimmer switch must be compatible with each other for normal operation. Traditional dimmer switches work fine with incandescent light fixtures, however various new lights have electronic circuit components that will require dimmer switches specifically for these new lights.
- Most dimmer switches can be adjusted to enable the full range of lighting control.
- As for the comment from the electrician where you will just have to live with it, well I would rather think that he would have looked into the problem and find the solution for you.
