As lighting technology advances, there is now an abundance of dimmer switches on the market. Not only do these devices adjust light intensity and atmosphere in a space, but they also offer extra benefits such as energy conservation, money savings on power bills, and extended lifespan of bulbs!
Replacing your light switch and adding a dimmer switch offers many advantages — aesthetically and functionally. When you adjust the brightness of your lighting fixtures to suit your mood, it can help to create an ambiance that is either cozy or invigoratingly bright, perfect for when you want to relax or work productively!
Dimmers are beneficial for energy conservation. If your room enjoys a great deal of natural lighting, you can adjust the brightness level to reduce your electricity consumption significantly. Furthermore, with dimmer switches installed in your home, you’ll be able to prevent overloading on the electrical system and extend the life expectancy of all fixtures!
A standard light switch performs the basic task of turning your lights on and off with a simple ON/OFF connector. When in the ON setting, electricity flows freely to the fixture, while OFF interrupts that power connection. With a dimmer switch, however, not only can you turn on the electrical current but also adjust how much energy goes through – granting full control over your lighting levels!
Take a battery-operated flashlight, for example. When the batteries start to deplete — or decrease electrical power to the light — it gets dimmer and less effective. Instead of having depleted batteries, you have control over your level of illumination from full brightness all the way down to low lighting with just one switch that can be moved up and down! That’s why most modern dimmer switches are designed with a versatile slider giving you ultimate finesse in managing your home lighting needs.
Is your light switch taking more than a few clicks to work? Not only are these irritating, but they can also reveal other underlying issues that could cause much greater and potentially hazardous problems if not taken care of promptly. Call our repair team right away if you notice:
