Reasons to Install a Dimmer

Do you have dimmer switches installed for your light fixtures? Do they seem like a waste to you? You’d be surprised how useful dimmers can be. We’ve listed out a few benefits to installing dimmer switches in your home:

  1. Dimmers can help save energy

    Yes, when you dim the output of light of your fixture, you are using less energy. Less energy usage = lower energy bills!

  2. Dimmers help extend bulb life

    The less energy you use (see #1) the longer your bulb will also last. The less stress applied (less energy) to a filament in a bulb, the longer it will last. This is even true with energy efficient bulbs, which helps offset the cost of these more expensive options. Energy efficient bulbs already last a long time, but when you combine them with a dimmer, they’ll last even longer!

  3. Dimmer switches are good to the environment

    Less energy spent AND longer living consumables is always better for the environment!

  4. Dimmers have been proven to help with health issues.

    Artifical light has been known to effect our sleep cycles and disrupt Circadian rhythms. Dimming the light you’re exposed to decreases these effects and can mimic what’s happening outside. If you dim your lights at night, after the sun goes down, your body will have an easier time adjusting.

  5. Dimmers can help a room look more inviting and cozy!

    Rooms that have dimmer light often look more cozy, inviting and even more romantic. Dimmers can help you prepare the meal with bright light and serve it in an inviting atmosphere with dim light!

  6. Dimmers can help people look better

    Dim warm light can make you look good! There’s a reason the most romantic and high end restaurants pay attention to lighting. Think candlelight – there’s nothing more flattering than warm dim light!

  7. Dimmers are inexpensive and easy to install

    Many people think they need a degree in electrical engineering to instal a dimmer. Dimmers sold today are as easy to install as a standard toggle switch. Instructions are easy to follow and they’re inexpensive!
