Dimmers and LED lamps

Dimmers! These can be really challenging. 

A massive saving!

A rotary or dim press dimmer module were installed. These old halogen lamps get incredibly hot, and once on only after a few second they are far to hot to touch. The result is overtime, the holders, transformers can burn and cause major problems.

If one only wants to fix a few down lighters using the old halogen lamp, this can still be done as the old transformers are still available.

However, we recommend all these old halogen down lighters be replaced to LED lamps. The led lamps do not require a transformer.

Please remember that you get non dimmable and dimmable lamps, in all shapes and size. Also different colour spectrum.

Typically the lower the Kelvin (K) the warmer the light, and the higher the K the cooler the light.

For example 3000K would signify a warm white, whilst a 4000K would be more cool white and 6000K a daylight effect.

Examples of dimmers that we install. Please note there are a lot of different cheap lights on the market, which do not dim correctly.
