    Neutral wire and LED dimmers

    Do dimmers that require a neutral wire perform better with LED lights than those that don't require neutral wire? Needed neutral wire timers for my outdoor lights for them to totally turn off. In my basement, the dimmers don't require neutral wires, but will not dim sufficiently without flicker. Would / could I see an improvement if I replace the dimmers with ones the require a neutral?

    Thank you

    Quite often, neutral based dimmers do perform better than non-neutral based dimmers.

    The best way to find LEDs that will perform well with our dimmers is to use our LED compatibility tool at www.lutron.com/ledfinder.
