Good point about new models. Need to find the bill for the rate. Solar guys don’t make it any easier either. My whole house has LEDs.

Most dimmable LEDs should work with that di1m with some possible issues, such as only dimming down a certain percentagealthough the newer Forward Phase or Adaptive Phase dimmers may work better for certain bulbs.

Solar guys don’t make it any easier either. I haven’t changed a bulb in two years either- all ICs. I have a 5k sq foot house and my electricity bill is under in the peak of the south summer. Have not changed a light in 2 years. With Utah having some of the lowest energy costs in the US 42nd out of the states in Electricity, 47th for A Gasand having a lot of sim1 to replace that aren’t used as often, the payback can be quite a bit longer, although your argument definitely holds true for a lot of lights probably most on the main floor in my dim11.


I don’t know whether to laugh or cry I do not assume this will always be the case. Everything I’ve tried works fine at dimming with the gen 1 dimmers. Sign in Already have an account?

I use just over Kwh in summer and around Kwh in winter – although we do have the additional cost of LPG fire in winter. I have a thing about color temperature and although K is real close to what I like, I’m interested in s the Philips DimTone does down at K.

My place is SF with hot tub. LEDs are where it’s at, and where it’s going, imho.

Again, sounds like a large amount of KW’s used per month. Good point about new models. Sorry I can’t be more help at this point.
