Why You Should Think About Installing Dimmer Switches

So you’ve started to really think about the lighting in your home, and have even installed some LED light bulbs to save energy and reduce your monthly electrical bill. Next on your list: installing dimmer switches! Here’s how to save even more money and continue to make your home look and feel great with dimmer switches.

Control Power Usage

Dimmer switches replace ‘flip’ light switches that only control whether a light or fixture is on or off, that means you’re either using 0% electricity or 100% electricity. With dimmers, you’ll be able to adjust that electricity usage in between those two extremes. By controlling that power usage, you’re controlling the amount of energy your lights are using, cutting costs and saving energy!

Get More Use Out of Your Bulbs

With using dimmers, you’ll increase the life span of your current light bulbs by controlling the wattage output and using more or less light, and electricity, as you need it. Dimming lights by even 25% can increase the usage of your bulbs to 3-6 years, and can cut electricity usage by 20%!

Dimmers Work With LEDs

You can still use your energy-saving LEDs with dimmer switches. All you’ll have to do is find LED bulbs that are compatible with traditional dimmers or use a dimmer switch with a leading-edge dimmer. Now you can make those LED bulbs go even further and continue to cut electricity usage.

Set the Mood of Your Home

The great thing about dimmers is you can change lighting to reflect the desired look of your home. Take a look at the rooms in your home that you think could install dimmer switches, typically those rooms that are high-traffic but could benefit from reduced lighting at times. Bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms are all great candidates for dimmer lighting.

Your home’s lighting accounts for at least 15% of your monthly electrical costs. Start saving money today by reducing energy with dimmer switches. Make an appointment today with a licensed electrician that can transform your home with this money-saving addition. Call Mister Sparky today!
