I have old fashion dimmable halogen spotlight mounted on my ceiling, and I would like to replace them with LED spot lights.

My questions are:

  • Would I have to replace the existing transformers to use dimmable LED spotlights?
  • If so, would I also have to replace the existing transformers if I chose instead to use non-dimmable LED spotlights?

I've replaced low voltage halogens with LED equivalent and had no issues with dimming. But, this is not always the case. I've had to take back a whole case because they had interference with radio signals.

Call the manufacturer and ask them. That's what we all do when we don't know.

  • Or just buy one of each different type you can find and try it out. Return the ones that don't work. If non work, get a new dimmer and try again. – AndyW Jun 20 '16 at 19:45
