LED Lighting Dimmable with Standard Incandescent Dimmers
While many LED bulbs are now dimmable, not all of them are and not all of them dim daylight lighting in the same way. Since LEDs consume such a low wattage, many types of dimmers do not function with LED in the same way that they do with high wattage load incandescents. When dimming an LED you may notice the following:
Smaller amount of dimming range (Typically 70-90% range vs. 100% with incandescent)
LED Bulbs may not shut off at lowest dim setting: this is caused by the dimmer thinking the bulb is completely off due to the low amount of wattage an LED consumes.
On dimming systems based on X10 or Power Line Carrier (PLC) control technology, LEDs may flicker when modules are communicating due to the small fluctuations in power on the line.
Current LEDs do not shift color when dimmed, in other words they will not offer a soft fiery glow when dimmed like an incandescent
