Dimmer switches are one of the most incredible practical innovations in interior lighting. These switches can add charm to every room in your home and save you quite a bit of money on your electric bill. If you don’t have these switches installed in your home, it’s time to make the switch, no pun intended.
What Are They?
Most of us are accustomed to using only one type of light switch, the standard kind that turns lights on and off by flipping a switch up or down. A dimmer switch, on the other hand, is a dial that you can use to turn the intensity of light up or down and adjust it according to preference. This alternative light switch design gives you total control. You can find ones that are circular or rectangular in shape.
The Practical Benefits
These switches have a lot of practical benefits that will be advantageous to you as a homeowner. When a conventional light switch is on, it will draw the maximum amount of power, and the draw will be constant, sucking up power continuously until the switch is turned off.
When you have dimmer switches, you can control the amount of electricity that’s used by the light. This means that you can use only a fraction of the electricity that you’d normally be using. The more energy you save, the more you’ll save on your electric bill.
You’ll also save money on light bulbs as dimmer switches will extend their lifespan. Light bulbs will typically last 4 times longer than they normally would simply by virtue of using dimmer switches. They can last 3 to 4 years if you keep them on a lower setting with soft light.
Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of having these switches installed is that they give you the ability to control the ambiance of any room in the house. Without dimmer switches, the only way to control the ambiance would be to turn lights off completely, using only lamps or candles.
Why go all over the room turning on individual lamps and lighting candles when you could control the lighting of the entire room with one dial? That’s the beauty of dimmer switches!
By using dimmer switches you won’t just be saving money on your electric bill, you’ll be saving the planet! Homes outfitted with dimmer switches use consumer less energy and ultimately leave a much lighter environmental footprint.
In the end, whether you care about the environment or your electric bill, dimmer switches are the way to go!
