Dimming CFLs and LEDs
Dimming saves energy while setting the right light level to improve mood and ambiance. Screw-in compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and screw-in light emitting diode bulbs (LEDs) are a great energy-saving alternative to incandescent or halogen light sources; however, dimming them may be difficult. Lutron’s new C•L™ Dimmers for dimmable CFL and LED bulbs have HED™ Technology which helps alleviate your CFL and LED dimming challenges.
Challenges of Dimming CFLs and LEDs with Standard Dimmers

Lutron CL Bulb typeEnergy-saving CFLs have been in the marketplace for many years but a broad range of dimmable bulbs has only recently become available. LEDs are even newer to the market and dimmable versions are also only recently available.

These dimmable bulbs, especially CFLs, have historically presented problems when used on standard incandescent dimmers.

Common issues include:

Reduced dimming range: Incandescent/halogen bulbs will typically dim lower than CFL or LED bulbs. Most dimmable CFLs will dim down to 10% to 30% measured light output. Early versions of dimmable LEDs on the market have the ability to dim lower than CFLs and can reach levels as low as 5% to 15% measured light. The actual dimming range is dictated by the bulb’s circuitry.

Lights dropping out: As CFL or LED bulbs are dimmed, they will sometimes turn off before the slider reaches the bottom. Referred to as “drop out,” this makes it extremely difficult to set the dimmer at the right level without bulbs turning off.

Lights not turning on: After being dimmed to a low light level and switched off, sometimes CFL or LED bulbs will not turn on until the dimmer’s slider is moved up. This is referred to as “pop-on,” which is especially challenging in 3-way situations where lights can be turned on/off from different locations, not just using the dimmer.

Lights turning off unexpectedly: Dimmable CFL and LED bulbs can be influenced by line voltage fluctuations. As your incandescent bulbs will sometimes dim or flicker when a device such as air-conditioning or a hair dryer is used, a dimmed CFL or LED can actually turn off or flicker excessively in those situations.

Note: Actual performance of any CFL or LED will vary from bulb type to bulb type and among different manufacturers. It is important to note that only bulbs that have been designed as dimmable should be used on a dimmer. To find out if your bulb is dimmable, please check the package, the bulb itself, or call the bulb manufacturer directly.

New Dimmers from Lutron
To help combat these issues, Lutron has developed a family of C·L dimmers for dimmable CFL and LED bulbs. By incorporating HED Technology, these dimmers improve the dimming performance of dimmable CFLs and LEDs compared to standard dimmers by:
  • Keeping the lights on as they are dimmed
  • Making sure the lights turn on at all light levels
  • Eliminating/reducing excessive flicker
  • Keeping the lights on even with line voltage fluctuations
About HED Technology: HED Technology features advanced dimming circuitry that is designed for compatibility with most high efficacy light bulbs.

Lutron C·L dimmers with HED Technology also provide full-range dimming for halogen and incandescent bulbs, ensuring today’s dimmer is compatible with tomorrow’s light sources. The dimmer can even dim a mixed load of light sources (i.e. LED and halogen or CFL and LED bulbs on the same circuit). C·L dimmers are available in our Diva®, Skylark Contour™, Luméa®, Ariadni®/Toggler® and Credenza® product families.
Adjustment Dial
Lutron CL adjustment DialYou may have noticed that your wall-mounted dimmer is equipped with an adjustment dial. Because performance is so varied from bulb to bulb or manufacturer to manufacturer, the adjustment dial will help you set the bottom of the dimming range for your particular bulbs.

Bulbs Approved for Use with this Dimmer
Per UL standard 1472, Lutron must test each bulb to ensure its compatibility with our C·L dimmers. For a list of compatible bulbs click on the link below. This list will be updated as Lutron tests more bulbs. Please check back regularly for updates.

BROAN Universal Make-up Air Damper Provides Exclusive Solution for IRC Code

Broan-NuTone®, America's largest manufacturer of residential ventilation products, today introduced the industry-exclusive BROAN® Universal
Make-up Air Damper, which works with all BROAN and BEST® range hoods whether they are new or existing installations. Broan-NuTone is the first manufacturer in the industry to offer a universal solution to meet the International Residential Code (IRC) provision regarding make-up air.

The 2009 IRC provision M1503.4 mandates that all range hoods capable of exhausting in excess of 400 CFM must be equipped with an interlock that can operate a make-up air damper. Without this convenient turn-key option for meeting the IRC code, builders, contractors, remodelers and HVAC technicians would have the arduous task of identifying components that can be interconnected safely to operate the damper and hood.

Broan Universal Make-up Air Damper“Because today’s homes are built so tightly, it’s essential that fresh air be let back into the home,” says Brian Wellnitz, marketing manager, kitchen ventilation, BROAN. “Broan-NuTone is the only manufacturer that makes an automatic damper especially designed to provide synchronized make-up air for the range hood – the make-up air damper automatically opens up when the exhaust fan is turned ON.”

Every time an exhaust fan removes air from a home, a sufficient volume of air must enter to prevent negative pressure in the home. Make-up air is the air that replaces air that has been exhausted from a home by ventilation fans and range hoods. Insufficient make-up air in a home can also limit the operation of a range hood, preventing proper capture and exhaust of harmful cooking smoke, moisture and odors.

With the BROAN Universal Make-up Air Damper (pictured above, right), homeowners can maintain the energy-efficiency of their homes while also ensuring that fresh air enters the home when needed. When the range hood or fan is turned ON, the damper opens and lets fresh air into the home. When turned OFF, the damper closes tightly and prevents unwanted air from entering the home during heating and cooling cycles.

By equalizing air intake and exhaust, the damper helps establish the ideal balance in air pressure levels for complete and effective ventilation. This synchronized operation also saves energy by operating only when necessary.

“With our previous Automatic Make-up Air Damper, BROAN was the first in the industry to create a packaged solution that provided homeowners a convenient way to meet IRC provisions and improve IAQ,” adds Wellnitz. “Now, with the BROAN Universal Make-up Air Damper, we’ve taken that one step further by offering a simple solution that will work with any of our range hoods whether in new or existing installations, saving our customers time and money.”

The motorized BROAN Universal Make-up Air Damper fits both 6-inch and 8-inch duct sizes, and it can be easily installed to interlock with new range hoods or retrofit to work with existing range hoods.
