Can I Use a Dimmable LED Light Bulb With a Non Dimmable Light Switch?

Can I Use a Dimmable LED Light Bulb With a Non Dimmable Light Switch?


You shouldn't have any problems. Dimmable LEDs, when installed in a non-dimming switch, will operate at 100% output and will run just as just fine.


What about installing LED bulbs that are non-dimmable with a dimming switch?


´╗┐If you install a non-dimming LED bulb in a circuit with a dimming switch, it will likely operate normally if the dimmer is at its 100% or fully on. Dimming the bulb, will likely cause erratic behavior such as flickering or buzzing and ultimately may cause damage to the bulb. If you must do this, keeping the bulb at full power works best.
