QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I purchased this product and installed it. It is on a dimmer. When I turn the dimmer up to its fullest strength, the bulbs make a humming noise. Is this usual?
Here is some information regarding your dimmer switch and the buzzing noise.
Buzzing Dimmer Switches
The hyper-fast AC interruptions that change lighting levels can cause a buzzing sound under the right circumstances. In some cases, the interruptions produce vibrations in the electromagnetic field within the bulb or within the switch itself, resulting in a buzz. Overloading your dimmer with excess wattage can also result in buzzing and humming.
- Change the bulbs: Buzzing coming from the fixture itself is usually related to bulb filaments. Longer filaments are more susceptible to electromagnetic changes, which can result in constant buzzing. Installing new bulbs with shorter filaments can solve this problem. Better yet, replace energy-wasting incandescent bulbs with dimmable LED bulbs. LEDs are far more energy efficient, and they don't use filaments.
- Consider usage: Running high-wattage bulbs for low lighting can place extra stress on your dimmer and cause buzzing. Install lower-wattage bulbs if you keep your lights at a lower setting on a regular basis.
