What are the Dimmable LED Light Bulbs?

Dimmable LED lights are a type of light that adjusts the brightness or lumens levels according to a person's needs. That makes them a perfect option for those who want more control over their lighting. Dimmable LEDs can emit light at different levels, meaning you can use them in many different ways, depending on your preferences. For example, you can set the brightness of the dimming light bulbs to be low when you are reading in bed, then leave them bright when you are watching TV or working on something else. Dimming LED bulbs also allow you to change colors depending on your mood or activity at any given time. 


Properties and Benefits

1. Dimmable LED Bulbs are the Perfect Replacement for Fluorescent Incandescent Lights

LED bulbs use only a fraction of the electricity that other bulbs do, like incandescent bulbs and fluorescent bulbs, making them more energy efficient. They also last much longer than traditional bulbs that are non dimmable, making them an excellent investment in your home or office. With dimmable bulbs, you can take advantage of all their benefits by using them with dimmers like those found in many modern homes. However, unlike non-dimmable traditional incandescent light bulbs (which do not work well with dimmers), dimmable LEDs work seamlessly with these switches to adjust the brightness level according to your needs at any given time and whether while reading a book or watching TV before bedtime.


2. 100% Capability of Controlling the Brightness of the Lights

With a regular dimmable LED light bulb, you have full power to control the brightness of your lights from 0 to 100%. If you have a remote control or a dimmer switch in your home, you only need to tap it and change the setting to whatever number represents how bright (or dark) you want the room to be. In addition, the remote control can be easily used to adjust the brightness of the bulb and its color temperature.


3. Dimmable Light Bulbs Come in Several Styles

  • Regular dimmable LEDs: These regular LED bulbs are the most common and can be found in many homes. These bulbs often have a light output of between 800 and 1,200 lumens, comparable to an incandescent bulb with about 60 watts. They are also usually available in warm or cool white color temperatures.
  • Smart dimmable LEDs: Smart bulbs are designed for home automation systems like Alexa or Google Home Assistant devices that run on Wi-Fi networks. They require additional equipment, such as hubs for wireless connections, before they can work properly. However, these smart lights offer great features like scheduling functionality once set up, so you do not have to adjust them manually daily.


How to Choose a Dimmable Light Bulb? 

To choose the correct dim bulbs for lamp and ensure they are compatible dimmers, you should look for the type of dimmer switch and its minimum and maximum load range. That will indicate compatibility with your LED light bulbs. Also, consider how you will control and dim the lights and the color temperature required according to your preference.


Tips for Using LED Bulbs in Enclosed Fixtures

Most everyday lighting fixtures are enclosed to protect the bulbs and prevent burns. However, they can also trap heat, making changing a burnt out bulb challenging.

When using LED bulbs in enclosed fixtures, it is essential to look for bulbs specifically designed for them. LED bulbs produce less heat, but using them in enclosed fixtures can shorten their lifespan. Look for the right shape and size bulb that fits the enclosure, and search for bulbs labelled as "Enclosed Rated" to ensure they can handle the heat in enclosed fixtures.

Pay attention to the LED bulbs' enclosed rating. This rating means the bulb has certain safety features to prevent overheating and provide continued optimal output, and it won't significantly reduce its lifespan. Those without enclosed fixture ratings may not last long in an enclosed fixture or weren't designed for one.
