Can you mix LED and incandescent lights on a dimmer?
Simply so, can you mix LED and incandescent lights in the same fixture?
Mistake #1: Mixing LED bulbs with incandescent bulbs is ok. No, it is not. Mixing LED with incandescent lighting causes poor performance. If using both on the same circuit, your incandescent light will draw more power, causing the LED to flicker.
Additionally, can LED lights be used in incandescent fixtures? Yes, in many cases, you can simply replace your bulbs separately, one by one. Replacing your existing incandescent or halogen bulbs with durable LED bulbs offers numerous benefits. You enjoy an even better light performance and benefit from very low energy consumption.
Considering this, do you need special Dimmer for LED lights?
Use an LED Dimmer switch A standard dimmer switch cannot be used with an LED light as you will never be able to dim the LED light either completely or not very well. LED lights need their own special electronic dimmer switch to have a fully functioning and dimming light.
What LED light is closest to incandescent?
The popular colors available for LEDs are "warm white" or "soft white," and "bright white." Warm white and soft white will produce a yellow hue, close to incandescents, while bulbs labeled as bright white will produce a whiter light, closer to daylight and similar to what you see in retail stores.
