Can the Lights Be Dimmed By an Independent Dimmer Switch?
Yes, they can be since the fan has a separate wire for the fan speed and for the fan light. The ceiling fans light wire can be connected to a separate dimming switch.
However, you are going to need a compatible dimmer for LEDs, since this ceiling light kit comes standard with LED bulbs.
Since standard dimmers for the incandescent light bulbs work by reducing the voltage to the light bulbs to make them appear less bright, and LEDs just will not work at the lower voltage, and this is even if they’re dimmable.
With a LED they are either off or on. The dimmers for the LED bulbs work by reducing the frequency of the electric pulse going to the LEDs and they are solid-state.
So you are going to need to install one of these LED dimmers inside your wall switch. After this, you are going to need to separate out the light circuit from the ceiling fans motor circuit. Then you would run the wires from the light circuit, through the ceiling and along to the dimmer switch.
However, as you can imagine it’s do-able, but the big crunch is that its probably not going to be worth the aggravation and time in my own opinion. A qualified electrician should be able to do the job, but would probably cost more than this Carriage House ceiling fan!
