Reasons Why Your Home Should Have Dimmer Switches

As a homeowner, you have the ability to pick out the lighting fixtures you want, how many you want, and where to install them. Shouldn’t you also be able to control the brightness of each fixture? Luckily, with the installation of a few dimmer switches, you can do just that!

Full Control Installing dimmer switches will give you full control of your lighting and how bright each room can be. Are you looking to set the mood during a nice dinner or relax for a night of watching television on the couch? Slide the dimmer switch downward to dim the overhead lighting in the room. Don’t settle for a light switch that only offers “on” and “off”; take control of your lighting!

Less Energy The more you dim your lights, the more energy you will save. The average home can save up to 10 percent on their energy bills each month with the regular use of dimmer switches. Not only will you save money on your energy bills, but you’ll also save money when purchasing light bulbs. Since less energy is used, select types of light bulbs will last longer in your fixtures.

Effects on Light Bulbs Dimming an incandescent light bulb will give your room a warm “candle light” look. It will also double (maybe even triple) the lifespan of the bulb. However, if you wish to have a cooler look in your home, opt for fluorescent light bulbs in your light fixtures. Unfortunately, dimming fluorescent light bulbs won’t increase the life of them like it would with incandescent bulbs.

With all of the benefits that dimmer switches offer, there’s no plausible reason for why they’re not installed in every room of the house. If you’re looking to have dimmer switches installed throughout your home, contact Lancaster Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical.
