We all have them; a family member who forgets to turn off the lights. I often come home to the bathroom light left on, the porch light in full glare, or the kitchen bright with nothing on the stove.
Save the energy of both your frustration and electric bill by installing home dimmers.
- Because of a dimmer’s versatility and ease of use, they are usually the most common devices found in home automation systems.
- Energy savings using compact fluorescent light bulbs mirrors the level of reduction, meaning that lowering the lights by 25% results in a 25% energy savings during the time the dimmer is used.
- Dimmers replace flip-type light switches, replacing fixtures with a dial or sliding bar control. Adjusting the control adjusts the wattage output, resulting in more or less electricity and light as you need it.
- If you are not familiar with electrical work, it is wise to hire a licensed electrician to install dimmer switches.
Replacing your lighting system with a dimmer system is efficient, smart and much easier on your electric bill if “someone” should forget to hit the lights on their way out the door. As for the electrical advice? Call AES today for a quote on dimmer systems and install details!
