Dimmer Switch Installation

Installing a dimmer switch to control the lighting in any room is a worthwhile investment. Your dimmer switch can help your lighting reflect any mood. Cast a romantic glow over a candlelit dinner for two, calm the atmosphere in your home when the kids get a little too rowdy, or turn up the light over your kitchen table to enjoy game night with the family. Having a dimmer switch installed for your home lighting means easy adjustment and control of the ambience in any room.

Why Install a Dimmer Switch?

Controlling the lights in your home does much more than adjust the lights to an appropriate brightness. Dimmer switch installation allows you to also control the amount of energy used to light up your home, too! Harsh, bright lights can be uncomfortable when not called for. Harsh lighting also uses far more energy than soft lighting and that equates to less electrical usage—up to 10 percent in some instances—and is reflected in your monthly utility bill.

Dimmer switch installation also enables you to extend the life of your light bulbs. When you dim your lights by just a quarter of the brightness of the lamp, you extend your bulb’s life by triple the normal lifespan. Using a dimmer switch on your already energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs can take away fluorescent lightings garish glow and present a warmer, softer light to your room.

Cutting Edge Dimmer Switch Technology

Dimmers have changed plenty in the past decade or so. No longer is there one obvious knob to control your lighting—something no homeowner wants to look at, regardless of if it matches style of your interior decorating. Today’s precision dimmer switches look like a traditional light switch, have touch-control capability, and use remote control operation.

Can I Install a Dimmer Switch Myself?

Though dimmer switch installation is easy to do, it’s not for the unlicensed electrician or handyman. Anytime you’re controlling the electrical current in your home, that is adjusting the amount of electricity or voltage traveling through the wiring, consulting a professional electrician is the safe way to go. Many homeowners have experienced the dangers and consequences of DIY dimmer switch installation, resulting in electrical shocks or electrical fires.
