Many people purchase lamps so that they can choose from a few different light sources in order to attain the amount of light they need at a particular time. With a dimmer switch, you decide how much light comes from a single light source at any given time. You can install dimmer switches in any room—your bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom—and have the ability to choose the amount of light you want in that room without switching on and off lamps. But there are many more advantages to dimmer switches than just pure convenience…
Benefits of Dimmer Switches
You could save money on your electricity bills in Charlotte! Regular light switches are either all the way off or all the way on—there is no in between. With a dimmer switch, you may choose settings that provide lower levels of light and these settings will not require as much electricity as if your light was in full-on mode.
Your light bulbs will last longer. By opting for less light sometimes, your light bulb will not work as hard and will therefore have a longer lifespan. If, for instance, you choose to dim your light by 25% on average, your light bulb could actually last four times longer than it would if it were working at 100% all the time.
You can adjust your lighting for ambience. Maybe you’d like to dim the lights to help you calm down after a long day or to set a particular mood. You can choose the amount of light that will help to establish your desired ambience.
You can adjust your lighting based on what activity you are performing. Obviously, if you’re reading the newspaper or the kids are doing homework you may need more light. If you’re watching a movie, you may want the room to be only dimly lit, like a movie theater. With dimmer switches, it’s totally up to you.
