Are E14 LED-bulbs dimmable?
Yes they are! With dimmable bulbs it is possible to adjust the amount of light. In fact you will use less energy because the bulb needs less energy when it is dimmed.
But it doesn’t end there. There is a bulb with which you can dim the color temperature and not just the amount of light. This is possible with the Philips Dimtone and the Glowdim from Osram. You can dim the colour temperature from a warm white light of 2700K down to a warm glowing light of 2200K. With the same bulb you can create ambient light for relaxed Friday evenings to a functional warmer white for reading and hobbies.
