What’s the first thing you notice when you enter a room? Is it the television? The furniture? How about the lighting? Well, without light the answer would be none of the above, but with beautiful fixtures and dimmer switches lighting can really make a statement in any room of the house.
What are dimmer switches and why do they matter? This type of light switch controls the brightness of a lighting fixture by adjusting the amount of voltage received by the fixture. Whether you’re looking to set the mood with a dimly lit room, or need maximum brightness for reading or performing certain tasks, a dimmer switch makes it all possible.
But there’s more to it than simply being able to adjust the brightness of a light. Dimmer switches save energy. By dimming a light, you can save nearly 98% of its energy and upwards of 10% on energy bills. Nice, right?
In addition to saving on energy bills, dimmer switches also help to extend the longevity of your light bulbs. Instead of a bulb burning out after 5 - 6 months, dimmers can help them last 3 - 4 years or longer depending on the type of bulb.
