LEDs over Incandescents
Are you considering the replacement of your traditional light bulbs (lamps) with an LED replacement lamp? If so, there are several things that you want to consider about the replacement LED lamps.

WHY ARE MY NEW LED LIGHTS
FLICKERING ON THE DIMMING SYSTEM?
A common problem that we run into within our industry is when a customer wants to replace their existing incandescent lamps with new highly efficient LED lamps and/or lighting fixtures. When they change out all of their LED Lamps and/or lighting fixtures and then turn them on, they often find them flickering.

Are you having issues dimming your LED lamps? What are some of the items you should consider when installing LED lamps into your dimming system? How can you test for LED lamp compatibility with your dimming system? Why do forward phase and reverse phase dimming matter? Here are some of our conversations around why your LED bulbs might not be integrating properly into your lighting system.Text
