Can I use a dimmer switch with LED lights?

Switching out incandescent light bulbs for LED bulbs is a great way to cut down on your monthly energy bills. But if you use dimmers in your home, you’re likely wondering: Do LED lights work on a dimmer?

Well, the answer depends: Yes, LED lights work on a dimmer when:

You have “dimmable” LED light bulbs with our 12v 24v led driver.

You use an LED compatible dimmable led power supply with led dimmer,

Not sure where to start when it comes to identifying the equipment you already have? Don’t worry. We’ll walk you through some easy-to-follow steps that will ensure you get the dimming effect you want with the energy-efficient bulbs you need.

if you already have a dimmer installed in your home that originally was using incandescent bulbs, you most likely have a “leading edge” dimmer that isn’t compatible with LED lights (unless your home was built in the last 5 years or was renovated recently).

You see, the 2 most common household dimmers include:

Leading edge led dimmers- these dimmers were designed to work with incandescent bulbs and most likely won’t work well with LED light bulbs. They’re the “traditional” and most common dimmer found in homes.

Trailing edge led dimmers - these are designed specifically to work with LED lights. These dimmers are newer and less common than leading edge dimmers.
