Why Use a Dimmer Switch?
There are more benefits to having dimmer switches installed in your home besides just being able to dim the lights! By having Jack Lehr electricians install dimmer switches, your homes can save money on energy, increase the lifespan of your lightbulbs, and improve a room’s functionality.
Energy Savings with Dimmable Lights
When your home has a traditional light switch, it’s either on or off. This means that you’re always using 100% of that light bulb’s electricity every time you need light in a room. But when you are able to dim a light, you can reduce the electricity usage and have greater control over how much energy you use. When you use less energy, you’ll inevitably see greater savings on your electric bills. Bonus: Pair a dimmer switch with an energy-efficient light bulb for extra savings!
Extend the Life of Your Lightbulbs
Traditional incandescent lightbulbs last for about 1,000 hours, and newer energy-efficient lightbulbs can last 3,000 to 25,000 hours. But installing a dimmer switch in your home can increase the lifespan of your lightbulbs by even more than that!
Dimmable Lights Are Adjustable and Functional
Dimmable lights are a wonderful addition to make any room more versatile. Take the living room for example; when you’re watching a movie, dimming the lights can give you a theater-like experience right at home! But if you’re reading or playing board games, you’re going to want a brighter light. When you have Jack Lehr electricians install dimmer switches in your Pennsylvania home, you can adjust the ambiance of a room to fit any purpose.
Can I Install a Dimmer Switch Myself?
Although there is no shortage of internet guides to installing your own dimmer switches, most types of electrical services are not do-it-yourself projects. In most United States homes, the average voltage for lighting outlets is around 110 volts. Although not typically fatal, any error in installing electrical devices in your home can pose a severe risk of electrical shock. Besides the risk of electrical shock, installing a dimmer switch yourself puts your home at risk of a fire due to incorrectly connected wiring. The residential and commercial electricians at Jack Lehr go through years of training in order to work safely around electric systems, so you can trust that all of our services are done correctly and comply with all codes, licenses, and laws.
Don’t let your DIY put you in danger! We offer preventative services like whole-home surge protection so you can avoid any costly damage to your electronics and other home appliances.
