Are Your Lights Flickering?

Saturday, August 15th, 2020

Are your lights flickering in a room when you adjust the dimmer? Did changing the bulbs not solve the problem? The issue is probably an outdated dimmer. Many of the dimmers in homes were manufactured before LED bulbs were the mainstream. Older versions of dimmers will cause LED bulbs to blink or flicker leaving frustrated homeowners unaware of the cause. If you have this problem, pick yourself up a new dimmer.

Option 1: DIY

There are a couple of things to check before you take on this project though. First, make sure that before you walk to the register you have checked the new dimmer packaging. It should say that it can be used with LED bulbs. Second, you always need to make sure you turn off the circuit breaker before you start any electrical project.

Option 2: Leave it to the pros
