Benefits Of Using Dimmers In Your Home
During the winter months the days are shorter and the nights are longer. It’s dark in the morning when we get up, and it gets dark again early in the evening. We consume more energy operating the lights in our homes during the winter months than we do any other time of year. There are many benefits to installing dimmers in our homes, here are just a few.
- Dimmers save energy. Instead of operating your lights at 100% power, operate the lights at 90%. Wow, you just saved 10% on your electric bill!
- Dimming your lights in most cases will extend the bulb’s life by at least double and potentially much longer depending on how much you dim. This saves you time and money by cutting your maintenance costs.
- Dimming the lights creates ambiance, sets the mood, and can change the look and feel of a room.
There are many ways to dim your lights. You can use individual dimmers, use room lighting controls to replace multiple switches in a room, or a whole house lighting control system. Our electricians recently updated our Harleysville clients lighting system. They can look forward to saving on their electric bill.
