Benefits of Installing Dimmer Switches

When considering home improvement projects, most people don’t consider installing dimmer lights, but here are a few excellent reasons why you should.

Dimmer Switches Save Energy

With energy prices continuing to rise, it’s helpful to cut costs wherever possible. Using dimmer switches to control the amount of light will significantly reduce your energy consumption, reflecting on your electric bills.

Added Ambiance

Adding dimmer lights is a great way to increase your home’s beauty and ambiance by setting the mood in a room. Imagine turning down the lights in your home theater to enjoy a movie or to snuggle on the couch for a romantic evening.

Increases Bulb Lifespan

Another advantage to installing dimmer light switches is to increase the lifespan of your bulbs. Using dimmer switches to lower the power to your bulbs to a softer setting can give them an extra three or four years of life.

For more advantages of installing dimmer lights, call one of our certified electricians for a consultation.

How to Tell If You Need Dimmer Switch Replacement

Dimmer switches have seen significant advancements since their creation in the 1960s. And while modern dimmer switches are solid-state devices, they’re still prone to damage and wear and tear.

Here are the most common signs that your dimmer switches are going bad.

The Lights Won’t Dim

If you’re using the proper bulbs and the dimmer suddenly won’t dim the lights, it could be the switch is wearing out and needs replacing.

Dimmer is Hot

If the dimmer switch feels hot, it usually means there are loose wires behind the panel, or it might be receiving more voltage than it was designed to handle. These situations are risks that require calling a professional electrician as soon as possible.

Buzzing Noise

If you hear a buzzing noise coming from the dimmer switch, there may be more voltage running through it than it can handle. The best way to determine if this is the problem is to remove a few bulbs from the fixture to see if the problem goes away.

Modern dimmer switches can last for years without issue; however, if your switches develop these or any other problems, call an electrician to see if you need dimmer switch replacement.
