Do dimmable LED lights use less energy when dimmed?
Yes. The brighter an LED is, then the more energy it is using. Therefore a dimmed LED is using less energy than an identical LED running at full brightness.
Do dimmers use more electricity?
Not only do modern light dimmers save you energy, but they also extend the life of your light bulbs! Dimmers use a “Triac Switch” to rapidly turn a light circuit on and off to reduce the energy flowing to a light bulb. This switch will cut the energy running to the fixture up to 120 times in one second.
How much electricity do dimmers save?
What we see is a constant light output. And dimmers do save. Dimming your lights an average of 50 percent can cut your electric use a whopping 40 percent over time and make your bulbs last 20 times longer!
