Are you looking to add dimming options in your home? Good decision. That’s one addition that comes three important benefits.
LED light bulbs are designed to be easy on the eyes. Dimmable ones offer an additional advantage — you can adjust them to match the lighting needs within a specific space. A brightly lit space for office work or reading can turn into a conference or presentation space by dimming. In short, you can adjust the lighting in any space according to your requirements.
LED light bulbs are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs. However, not all LED light bulbs are made equal. Those with dimming capabilities can consume less energy than their non-dimmable counterparts. When you think about it, that’s not surprising at all because less energy is used for reduced output levels.
By dimming a light, you can save up a lot of energy and cut down your electricity bill. Moreover, reducing the amount of wattage used by the bulb will help it to last longer. This, in turn, saves you more money on light bulbs as well.
Since with a dimmable LED light bulb you can control the lighting as per your requirement, it can help reduce eye strain and improve concentration.
As you can see, dimmable LED light bulbs offer several advantages. However, if you want to enjoy the best that these bulbs have to offer, install LED-compatible dimmer switches. While dimmable LED light bulbs may work with old switches designed for incandescent bulbs, you may encounter some issues like flickering. Also, you might not be able to keep the lights on at very low lighting levels.
