Dimmable LED Under Cabinet Lighting - Debunking Myths About LED Lights

Dimmable LED Under Cabinet Lighting

As with many nascent technology, there are plenty of myths about LED lights too. For instance, internet is still brimming with videos and quotes that LED lights are less energy efficient than fluorescent lights. This kind of misinformation is possibly due to LED technology so rapidly becoming mainstream that just a few years old information is completely obsolete today.

Dimmable LED under cabinet lighting - is there such a thing?

Another myth is that LED lights can not be dimmed. This is false as well. The fact is that, indeed, LED lights are dimmable, just not with exactly the same dimming mechanism or dimmer that is used to dim regular incandescent lights. In more technical terms, dimming of LED lights is accomplished through dimmers that regulate current while keeping the voltage applied to the LED lights about the same.

So, the same dimmer as is used for regular incandescent lights such as Xenon or halogen lights may not work properly. However, when you buy dimmable LED under cabinet lighting, that dimming mechanism will work swimmingly. You will also find dimmers and dimmer switches that work both with LED and CFL, compact fluorescent, lights. In addition, as you will see below, some LED under cabinet fixtures and under cabinet task lighting will work with any incandescent dimmer too.
